Obama’s Job Creation
President Obama’s and his Liberals’ Porkulus, commonly referred to as The Stimulus Package, has largely failed to create jobs in America and had to be rebranded by the White House as a jobs saving effort. Likewise, both the mythical “Green Jobs” and the upcoming “Jobs Bill” will not actually create jobs.
On the other hand, President Obama and the Liberals trying to rule Congress have caused a sudden and dramatic increase in one sector of the American economy – the lobbyists!
The financial sector hired 2567 lobbyists in 2009 and, in the first three quarters of the year, spent over $336 million lobbying Congress. The US Chamber of Commerce hired 127 lobbyists and paid them $52 million through September 2009.
That’s a fair amount of commerce going on there with almost $400 million changing hands in three fiscal quarters, and that’s just in lobbying for the financial sector; it doesn’t include the number of jobs created for lobbyists for other sectors of the economy and other interest groups.
See, President Obama and his Liberals can create jobs. 😉
