Job Creation Number One Focus in 2010 Obama

WASHINGTON - JANUARY 20:  President Barack Oba...Image by Getty Images via Daylife

In his weekly address to the nation President Obama promised that job creation will be his administrations number one focus in 2010. He stated that even though during the last quarter the economy grew more than at any time in the previous six years, one in ten Americans is unemployed. Therefore, more must be done to provide jobs for …"folks who want them". To this end President Obama has proposed the following incentives:

  • Tax credits for business who hire new workers, raise wages, and invest in new plants and equipment
  • Eliminate capital gains on small business investment
  • Assist small business in obtaining loans
In addition President Obama pointed out that "it is critical that we rein in the budget deficits we’ve been accumulating for far too long". Therefore he has proposed a spending freeze that will cut spending on programs that are redundant, obsolete or ineffective. He also indicated his pleasure that the Senate has restored the pay-as-you-go law.

Last but not least he has called for a bi-partisan Fiscal Commission – a panel of Democrats and Republicans who would sit down and hammer out concrete deficit-reduction proposals by a certain deadline. He pointed out 53 Democrats and Republicans voted for this commission in the Senate. But it failed when seven Republicans who had co-sponsored this idea in the first place suddenly decided to vote against it.

The Hoss believes this move by the Republicans was strictly political and is a clear indication of their unwillingness to work together with the Democrats for the benefit of all Americans. They would rather do what ever it takes to score political points than be creative and work as a team for the benefit of all.

They are indeed the party of no "no cooperation".

Stay on Track,
