Obama: No Money for Jobs Program; Money for 30,000 More Troops In Afghanistan Though
This is truly sickening. Obama and his advisers have a complete lack of understanding of our monetary system and have become "enslaved" by a belief system that runs rampant in this country: a belief system that is not based in fact and reality, but rather, on some kind of non-existent gold standard.
So many millions of people are out of work and in a single stroke they could be employed or the funds could be there to employ them, but Obama and his team meekly beg for help from private sector firms who really are constrained in their ability to provide help.
Deficit reduction has become this Administration's main emphasis, overriding the struggles of millions who voted for him and to whom he promised, "change."
And hearing Tim Geithner lamely pledge that the "substantial assets" remaining in Tarp, will be used to pay down the deficit, while so many suffer, is the icing on the cake.
