One Year Later and Still No Recovery Summer Obama Promised



Obama is clueless about the economy. Instead of improving the economy, the president cares more of the lobbyist and bridging the Muslim communities. I resent Obama's laziness, lies, and gaffes. Obama recently called the stall in the economy as a “bump in the road.” Also, Obama blames ATMs for job loses. Just recently, the president joked about the “shovel ready jobs” he promised “weren’t as shovel ready as we expected.” The president's statement has infuriate many Americans. It is not funny that the president's policies are keeping workers on the unemployment line and driving us deeper into debt. If this is the recovery Obama desires, it is not what the American people deserve.

(National Review) John Boehner (Speaker of the House). One year ago today, the Obama administration launched its “Recovery Summer” publicity tour to bolster flagging support for the “stimulus.” Vice President Biden said, “The fact is, the recovery act is working.” But the fact is, it didn’t. “Recovery Summer” fizzled, much like the “stimulus” itself.

Republicans have a real blueprint for job creation — the “Plan for America’s Job Creators.” What makes our plan different is that it focuses on one thing: removing government barriers to private-sector job growth.

The “stimulus” was all about big spending and big government — not jobs. That was obvious on the day the “Recovery Summer” began in my home state of Ohio. Local construction workers on a nearby site in Columbus were forced to take the day off, without pay, so the White House entourage could roll through and tout all the taxpayer dollars they were spending. But all that spending got us was more debt and fewer jobs.

Approximately 1.5 million jobs have been lost since the “stimulus” was signed in 2009 — roughly 300,000 of them as administration officials hopped from town to town promoting the “summer of recovery.” The national unemployment rate was 9.1 percent in May — far above the 8 percent promised by the White House — and has averaged 9.5 percent throughout the Obama presidency.

The anniversary of President Obama’s “Recovery Summer” publicity stunt is a good reminder that families and small businesses in Ohio and across the country can’t afford more spending and more debt — they need more jobs. And Republicans are listening.

The Republican plan — reining in excessive regulations, expanding energy production, paying down our debt, fixing our tax code, and opening new markets for American-made goods — is a serious blueprint for private-sector job creation and long-term economic growth.
