Obama’s Economy A Shambles
October 12, 2010
Some officials estimate the stimulus might create/save two million jobs, and the current unemployment rate of 9.6% could go to 10% by year end, and stay near 10% for 2011. The real unemployment rate is over 15%, and includes people whose unemployment benefits have expired and who have stopped looking for work.
The economic stimulus money was wasted on programs that did not create the NEW jobs promised by Obama.
Since the beginning of the Obama economic debacle in January 2009 the national debt as a percentage of GDP has gone from 40% to approximately 60%, and the national deficit in 2010 is projected to reach about $1.5 trillion.
Obama’s economy is a shambles because consumers, who account for 65% of our economy, are cutting back on expenditures due to a lack of trust and confidence in the current administration. Obama’s policies and programs have created a lethargy in this country, which is due to the uncertainty fomented by the Obama administration.
We need a fresh approach to our economy, and the discontent of the American public should be heard in the upcoming elections in November.
