Why is it the only jobs elected officials want to concentrate on are construction jobs? Also, of course, they want to spend another $400 billion of taxpayers' hard earned money. I wonder if most of those jobs are union jobs?
Instead of getting out of the way, President Barack Obama and the current Congress think they can create jobs. Everybody knows, we are the ones who create jobs.
The people have seen the spending that the president has done in the past three years. Guess what? It didn't work. And instead of learning from past failures, they just keep on doing the same spending.
I say, make it easier, not harder, for small businesses. They are the backbone of this country. Give them a tax break, not more taxes. That goes for any business, for that matter. Stop throwing money at businesses that go bankrupt and give jobs to workers in Mexico.
We need the jobs here. I would think the president would know that by now.
