Obama and the Pipeline

Posted by madjillmom on July 31, 2013

I have been out-of-pocket and really busy these last few weeks but I had to post something on Obama’s comments about the Keystone Pipeline. Yesterday, Obama derided the 50 permanent jobs the pipeline would create. As Steven Hayes said last night on Special Report, that is 50 more than Solyndra made. Obama said the pipeline wasn’t a jobs program because it will only result in 50 permanent jobs. A pipeline will employ thousands during the build out, but will eventually only provide employment for 50. Obama wants a “jobs program” from the government, and ignores the issue that the pipeline is not a government program, but rather an actual business that won’t cost the government money. In Obama’s warped view of things, only a government program is the answer to high unemployment. Only government spending and stimulus can create jobs.

Also today, economic growth numbers have come out again in the anemic range. They even lowered the growth numbers of the first quarter again. Without the oil industry growth, these GNP numbers would be even bleaker. Obama seems not to understand the government jobs suck life out of the economy, while companies and corporations create jobs that benefit the economy. His answer is always more spending or investment.

Stimulus Jr.

Posted by madjillmom on September 8, 2011

I am waiting for Pres. Obama to lay out his plan to be re-elected to grow the economy by making jobs appear.  It appears that his best idea is to spend more money, tax the rich, go for some more shovel-ready union employing infrastructure, and cut the military.  Oh wait, I forgot about funding green companies like Solyndra that his campaign donors invest in. He will take pains to tell us that he will pay for all this stuff, but he won’t tell us how.  His grand idea is to let the new super committee come up with lots more cuts or taxes to handle this new Stimulus Jr.

Whatever… I’m sure it will work just as good as the last time.  I am guessing that this plan will really impress the committee at Standard and Poors.  Greece does have a very dynamic economy, doesn’t it?
