Why jobs no longer top Washington's agenda

Post by Guest on Fri Jun 03, 2011 10:53 am

"Where are the jobs?"

In Washington, it's a question that Republicans brandished like a sword during the first two years of Barack Obama's presidency and one that Democrats used when the GOP took control of the House of Representatives in January.

For both parties heading into another campaign, the question remains the same, and the answers aren't any closer. While there are plenty of ideas about job creation, political realities make implementation unlikely.

So a softening of the economy — reflected in Friday's dismal jobs data from the Department of Labor — doesn't mean Congress will pass a new stimulus program. Deficits and debt dominate the Washington agenda, not new ways to create jobs.

With the latest job report, housing report, Wall Street data, and unemployment numbers which were just released today, Washington had better start to get serious about putting JOBS back on the top of their agenda. Today's figures are dismal and sobering, so if things continue this way, it is my opinion that those in D.C. will soon personally understand the plight of the unemployed. They will be walking in our shoes and will join the ranks of the unemployed when the next elections roll around.

I know we are all aware of this...Just venting and aggravated with the political machine. They just don't get it. They seem to have no fear that their jobs are also in jeopardy, and some pretty cushy jobs, at that. Wouldn't we all love the income and benefits those in Washington have grown used to? I hope those who have hindered unemployment extensions at every turn will soon grow used to the lifestyle we have all had to contend with since losing our jobs. I continue to applaud those on Capitol Hill who have supported us, but to those who have not, I hope the saying "What goes around comes around" rings true for every single one of them.

That's all the venting from me for now. Thank you for tolerating it!
