Despite promising to make job creation the "number one focus" of his administration in 2010, Barack Obama has done virtually nothing to help reduce unemployment while redoubling his efforts to force Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling public.
Experts say that the $15 billion "jobs bill" currently proposed by the Democrats is unlikely to spur significant new hiring. In contrast, the new Obama-version of healthcare reform may cost as much as $2 trillion...to be paid for, in part, by new taxes on business investments. And as business investments go down, so does the ability of companies to expand or hire workers.
Which is why Obama's "number one focus" sounds, to us, like another load of "number two."
