A major pillar in the Obama econmic push was job creation under the stimulus package. He claimed his plan would save or create millions of jobs. He never specified whether he’d be saving or creating jobs. It turns out that most of the jobs are going towards summer youth employment – the least important age bracket for families seeking financial assistance. Let’s face it, Obama is seeking out that age level for a whole host of reasons none of which have the best interests of the American people at heart. It is all about his next campaign and self-promotion.
The first reason Obama seeks this age level out is that these are temporary, low paying jobs. With less money, Obama can employ a high volume of people at lower wages and make it look like he is creating more jobs than he actually is. At a very low cost to the government Obama can promote himself and campaign for himself in future elections. even with that the amount of jobs were talking about creating is only aroudn 150,000 new jobs during this summer. This number pales in comparison to the the 650,000 layoffs that the country has been experiancing monthly.
Secondly I am begining to detect a connection between this and Obama’s civilian national security force he has hinted at severak times now since his campaign last july. I was made aware of a website advertising this in North Carilna that really caught my concern a few weeks ago. www.jumpinthejobpool.com These job would focus primarily in community service style oppurtunities and be funded by federal stimulus money. They are also exclusively open for the proclaimed purpose of getting teens of the street. Its seems like it almost requires these people to be in the category of high school dropout level. Basically I would classify it as people most dependent on government to step in and act as their perverbial parents. It’s becoming more of a way to increase the dependency of the population on the government rather than to help make people more independent. Although these are paid opportunities they are certainly not a job that would make much of a difference for families trying to get by.
Its very clear by who’s getting these jobs that the president is not interesting in increasing people’s quality of live. He is not expanding opportunity for those who need it most – unemployed parents/ heads of households. In addition the numbers are so measly for the amount of money that we are being compelled by this administration to spend. This is not change we have been waiting for… this is more of the same garbage we have been dealing with ever since the departure of Reagan. It is of the essence that we as conservatives stand by and call the president out of this. We will not let this bluff Obama calls job creation to pass without our pronounced vocal opposition to this policy.What the hell does save or create jobs mean? How come we aren’t hammering away at this!
