The only jobs they care about are their own
When the officialdom in Washington, D.C. state that they do not know why the recovery is stalled or is getting worse, that is proof that they do not have a clue or relate to the taxpayers.
The number one problem is our government giving money away. Unemployment (like jobs in D.C.) was never meant to be a lifestyle. If no one in Washington has the guts to stop paying people not to work (for years!) and introduce bills to end Medicare, Medicaid, the IRS, Energy Dept., EPA (the root of many problems), HHS, the Education Dept, etc., we will all go down.
Officials seem astonished that jobs are not being created and what do they do? “We will appoint a special committee to examine the problem.” Aren’t the regular agencies supposed to be doing that? All we get from Washington are reports of debauchery, scandal and — tada! — more spending. It is no better than most Third World countries. Jobs will appear if all the regulatory red tape stops and people will work if they aren’t paid not to. Let the oil companies, airplane and auto industries move ahead and jobs will be created. And unions be damned. They are part of the problem. Rosie Rollins Yellow Spring, West Virginia
