President Addresses Congress

Yesterday, Sept 8, 2011, President Obama addressed Congress and explained his new bill that he is sending before Congress called the “The American Jobs Act”.

Interesting speech, but then again President Obama is renowned for his great speeches, how he can turn heads, make people listen, get people to believe, but actually deliver nothing.

I am a regular American man who is tired of the politics that go on in Washington, everyone is out to either make a name for themselves, get money from lobbyists', or whatever it is they do except doing the job they were hired to do.  Yes hired, WE hired you, remember us, the people that voted you into office.  We interviewed you, you told us what we wanted to hear, how you would change things, make things better, but you lied to us.

Anyway, back to the Presidents speech.  It was interesting, he had some good ideas, but as always failed to explain how he was going to pay for it.  Something I find very interesting about this President is how he is always doing whatever he can to push legislature down our throats for “our own good”, but always failing to explain how the hell he’s going to pay for it.

Christ, we are in debt past our proverbial eyeballs, the United States credit rating has been reduced, we’re in the depression/recession that is damn near as bad as the great depression, but you just keep bloody spending money.  I know it’s printed on paper, but Holy Crikes Batman, you can’t just keep printing money and think that will solve it.

Lowering taxes, offering incentives to companies for hiring people out of work, that is all great-n-dandy, but it isn’t going to solve the problem.  The problem is companies aren’t hiring, in fact they are cutting back.  They ship jobs overseas because it’s cheaper, and they reduce their workforce here but are still able to make a return on their investment and make as much, if not more, money then before.

All in all, what the President outlined was interesting, will it actually do any good, I hope so but I sincerely doubt it.  Under the cover’s you could tell it was politics' as usual. As of yet, the GOP hasn’t really responded, but they better be damned careful when they do, and watch what they say, because the American people are fed up, and rightly so.

It will be interesting to see how this play’s out, and to see the outcome.  The elections next year are going to be driven by what happens, but in the end politics' will win out and unfortunately, we will lose.
