Bill Clinton used the simple campaign issue of "it's the economy stupid" as his basis for election. He was right. the economy is the driving force in our lives. Spending, GDP growth, and tax collections are just a few of the barometers used to measure the robustness of the economy. It does not take an advanced degree in economics from an ivy league school to understand that if people have jobs, they have money to spend. Employment equals taxes and the government pig is fed first. Remember, Uncle Sugar takes his cut off the top of your pay!
So, are you undecided about The Obama? Not sure about healthcare, banking reform, Gitmo, the WoT, the worth of the stimulus, Government Motors, or Cash for Clunkers? Are you unsure about investing in green energy? Do you like the idea of taxing the wealthy? Well, I submit it is all about the jobs. Are Americans better off after four years of The 'Bamster?
There actually fewer people working now than when Obama took office. In spite of population growth, in spite of the plethora of "green jobs" he has claimed, in spite of the growth of new jobs (ever revised a week or two later), there are fewer people working today than there were in 1981. Ponder that fact and let me know why we should give the man without a plan four more years?
