The President's Jobs Plan (Not)

Post by Guest on Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:25 pm

Here's what the president should have said:

This job recession shows no sign of ending. It can no longer be blamed on supply-side disruptions from Japan, Europe's debt crisis, high oil prices, or bad weather.

We're in a vicious cycle where consumers won't buy more because they're scared of losing their jobs and their pay is dropping. And businesses won't hire because they don't have enough customers.

Here in Washington, we've been wasting time in a game of chicken over raising the debt ceiling. Republicans want you to believe the deficit is responsible for the bad economy. The truth is that when the private sector cannot and will not spend enough to get the economy going, the public sector must step into the breach. Cutting the deficit now would only create more joblessness.

My first priority is to get Americans back to work. I'm proposing a jobs plan that will do that.

This is a must read!

He said. "My most important goal is restoring jobs and wages. Those who oppose me must explain why doing nothing is preferable."

Explain why doing nothing is preferable.

I am sorry there is a duplicate posting, please merge. This shows how great this article is!

Second, we'll recreate the WPA and Civilian Conservation Corps -- two of the most successful job innovations of the New Deal -- and put people back to work directly. The long-term unemployed will help rebuild our roads and bridges, ports and levees,

I wish, people would get off this as a WIN/WIN deal. Many people out of work are over 40, many pushing 60+. You going to have people NOT at physical peak anymore DO this kind of work? I think not. Fact is Many if not MOST are OLDER laid-off workers. Many from White collar gigs behind a desk. More serious though must be put into WHAT are the physical ramifications to someone 40+ in this Roads/Bridge building BS idea. It's GREAT for the young if they would pick up their feet, let alone a Hammer or Shovel. But to say older folks will do it NEEDS to be more thought out. Some can do it, Many can't.
