I want to know who keep putting out to the public that the stimulus the congress passed is not working?
All weekend on every cable show the headline is The Stimulus Is Not Working. I would like for all the so called professional strategists on the cable shows, New York Times, Washington Post, to go back to the election night speech, also a few interviews post stimulus passage and to President Obama's inauguration speech.
He said in all of them that this recession was going to take a few years to come out of.
President Obama's words were, It may take one year, it may take more than one term, but I promise you America, we will get there. We will come out of this economic mess.
Give the man a break, the Republicans want to harp that two or three million jobs have not been created as of yet. The stimulus was not designed to create jobs this fast. The fast track was getting money to the states to save the jobs of firefighters, teachers, policement help medicare and medicaid, foodstamps. And put a tax cut into the hands of 95% of Americans. To hope stop the bleeding.
So far about 2,000 roads and highway jobs have been created or started. Now, once that money go out, the states need to do their job. The Govenors and Mayors. They should have all the permits and licenses for whatever job sites they have applied for. They should have the red tape completed.
Some Mayors have stated that the money is not getting to the right districts. Well get up off your ass and go to the Governors Office and take all the unemployed people with you.
Action speak louder than words.
Everyone is sitting on their ass waiting for Obama. This is Bull. The American people are tired of hearing what the Obama Administration is not doing. Look at all that they are doing.
We as Americans need to get up and start helping ourselves. President Obama called America to action in many of his speeches. Is anyone listening?
That include out leaders, The Senate, Congress, The Houses of Representives in every state, Mayors, Governors and The American People.
We are all in this together. If our President fail than we all fail. Personally I'm no quitter and do not like to fail at anything.
I would like to see all the so called sinsationalism taken out of the debate about the Stimulus. The lies to stop, and some education to the states from some of the so called economist on how to manage these billions of dollars going to the states, in order to get the best bang for the buck for the American people.
And Mayors and Governors. Get up off your asses and get out in the universe, and bring some businesses back to your states. To put people to work. The Republican party always talk about giving tax cuts. Well give some of the big businesses some of them tax cuts to bring the jobs to your states.
So many people are homeless. Every state have some old buildings that are sitting in a neigborhood. Make the owners fix them up or lose them. Offer people the option, if they fix up the buildings they can live in them and pay rent. People always will take pride in something they feel is theirs.
If money is short. Ask the President for a grant or loan to help fix up bad areas within our cities. That will create jobs for people, and help homeless people get into some homes.
There is so much out in America to do. No excuses for anyone. I'm tired of the lazyness of our public officials from the ground to the top.
America is a wonderful great place. We need to start acting like it today. Everybody Get To Work.
