Pres. Obama addresses the economy and energy this morning in an effort to make us more energy efficient and help stop more job losses. We find today that another 35,000 jobs are going away in the next few months.
With the Repubs hollering tax cuts, which we have seen didn't work, and wanting the Dems to give in to them, the President says we have to get the stimulus passed soon. They just keep fussing about every little thing that is in the plan, saying it is just spending not creating jobs.
Well, laying sod on the Mall is spending yes, but someone has to lay that sod so isn't that creating jobs?? By adding to the COBRA benefits yes it is spending but it is also putting money in people's pockets, so in effect isn't that a form of tax cut?? That's how I look at it anyway. Maybe I am simple but, that's my opinion.
Anyway, that's what I see, and here is what else the president has to say on the energy plan he signed by E.O. this morning. He enacted the newer emissions standards, which will force China to improve their standards to ours on all the cars they send over here.
Listen to what he has to say. I could just listen to him talk all day...he always makes soooo much sense and talks so good...lol
