Obama to outline new plans for jobless next week
Yahoo! News ^ | 1/25/14 | Roberta Rampton - Reuters

Posted on 01/25/2014 2:50:02 PM PST by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will announce a new plan next week to help Americans who continue to struggle to find jobs even as the economy recovers from recession, his senior adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, said on Saturday.

Obama's efforts to help the long-term unemployed are part of an economic strategy he will lay out in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday and expound upon during a four-state tour, Pfeiffer said in a mass email from the White House.

"With some action on all our parts, we can help more job seekers find work, and more working Americans find the economic security they deserve," Pfeiffer said in his email.

Obama has vowed to address the gap between rich and poor in America, and has said he will do what he can - even without help from a deeply divided Congress that, so far, has shown little willingness to spend money on new programs.

He has said he will take executive actions to push forward his agenda, as well as the power of the highest office in the nation to motivate business and community leaders to take additional steps.

A White House official said Obama will announce in his Tuesday speech new executive actions on retirement security and job training to help middle-class workers "expand economic opportunity" - a key theme of the speech.

A new “five year plan” since the last one hasn’t worked, comrade? How many five year plans were enacted by the Soviets that never worked? Socialism, i.e., centralized planning works every time. Every time, we just need to get it right...this time. And for those of you who disagree, we are working on the development of destructive labor camps and other methods to cull the herd of non-believers. Forward!

Look out. Whenever this guy has a plan for the jobless, it usually means more government/union jobs that nobody can afford, and it always results in more jobless in the private sector. Obamacare is certainly seeing to that.

I’ll bet anything his plan is more government programs and not less taxes and less regulation.

AMERICA: What happens now?
OBAMA: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall,
and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise —
not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!
AMERICA: Who leaps out?
OBAMA: Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh
and uh....
AMERICA: Oh....
OBAMA: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger—

Hubby and I moved from rural Georgia to DC area to become servants of the Washington elite in 2009. We have been gainfully employed, paying their salaries ever since. Are we resentful? What do you think?

Wait...what? new executive actions on retirement security that sounds like they are expecting a crash on the retirement circuit? Is this a projected market crash for Monday? Why are they going after retirement security? It wasn't on the radar a few weeks ago that I noted?

More government jobs. There’s gonna be a big change in our structure. (Consumerism on its way out) No one’s going to have any income left after heating and health care for any extras. This will be just like life in the EU.

"new plans for jobless next week"

Here is a little preview - it will be straight from the Jimmy Carter / Left Wing playbook:

So, why haven't they been doing that for the last 5 years?

Per some threads this week, we learned that the real 'unemployment' rate was closer to 37% than the 6.7% made up number.

Several of those big bail-out bills were supposed to help set up jobs. Remember the 'shovel ready jobs' promises?

This Administration has no clue as to what generates jobs. All they know how to do is tax and spend. And much of the spending goes to their cronies. Who got the initial contract for healthcare.gov? Friends of Michelle. And they screwed that up 'royally', as the saying goes.

He will manage to blame the Republicans and Bush, and the press will eat it up.

The press would not dare bring up the question: ‘What have YOU been doing for the last 5 years regarding the joblessness?’

“....as well as the power of the highest office....” That includes the NSA and the IRS. As I’ve said before, there are lots of powerful people behind the thrown.

The NSA and IRS are being used against congress. It’s about to be used against businesses. They are going to destroy their enemies. VJ told us they would.

He’d going to propose a fedgov program that will consist of two work teams. Both will be paid prevailing union wages as long as they join the union and donate to the DNC.

One work team will dig holes. The other work team will fill them in.

He is SO clever!
