President Obama today blamed Republicans in Congress for the flailing economic recovery, saying “every problem we face is within our power to solve. What’s lacking is our politics.”
What happened to his $800 billion dollar plus stimulus? How about that ‘Recovery Summer?” Where’s those 500,000 jobs per month that was promised? After almost 4 years Obama is still blaming HIS failures on others.
“We have the answers to these problems. We have plenty of big ideas and technical solutions from both sides of the aisle. That’s not what’s holding us back. What’s holding us back is a stalemate in Washington,” the president said in his weekly address.
What’s holding back the economy is Obama’s policies. A majority of Americans, from all political ideologies, say the same. Not to mention Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, hasn’t brought any of the 30 plus job bills up for a vote in the Senate and a bipartisan effort shot down Obama’s jobs bill. Plus Obama ignored his own jobs counsel’s recommendations simply because it contained ideas pitched by Republicans. But hey, you can totally trust Obama.
While there’s been some progress on his proposals to boost the economy, Obama said “on most of the ideas that would create jobs and grow our economy, Republicans in Congress haven’t lifted a finger. They’d rather wait until after the election in November.”
“I think that’s wrong. This isn’t about who wins or loses in Washington. This is about your jobs, your paychecks, your children’s future. There’s no excuse for Congress to stand by and do nothing while so many families are struggling. None,” he said.
It’s all about winning for Obama or he wouldn’t constantly lie and blame others for his miserable presidency and failed policies.
The president continued to call on Congress to invest in infrastructure and education and to give small-business owners a tax break to get the economy moving.
The same things in his stimulus package that failed to keep unemployment lower, create jobs and have caused a 30 year low labor force participation rate.
