Rise in unemployment rate is another reason why the Senate must pass House jobs bills nowOn Friday, the Obama Administration announced that the national unemployment rate went up to 8.2 percent in May.
When President Obama’s $825 billion stimulus bill was signed into law, he promised it would save or create 3.5 million jobs and keep the unemployment rate below 8 percent. Three years later, with 12.72 million Americans looking for work and unemployment above 8 percent for 40 straight months and counting, the economic recovery President Obama promised us still hasn’t happened.
The House has passed dozens of bills that will help create jobs and maximize America's energy production. Unfortunately, our jobs bills are stacking up like cord wood in the Senate. You can keep track of them all here.
And the GOP has decided that parents should have the right to raise their own children.
I'm not arguing against that, I think we need more jobs and parents should make the decisions regarding their kids.
No question there is too much government interference in daily life and in decisions that should be personal, too many regulations slowing growth and stopping job creation, but why must there be more legislation?
Wouldn't it better serve the purpose to undo the legislation that allowed the creation of the regulations and agencies that are interfering than to create even more legislation to regulate previously passed bad legislation?
