Maybe Economic Recovery Is Not The Plan

It makes you wonder why the Obama Administration is spending all of its time with health care and carbon emissions. The immediate problem is that nearly 10 percent of Americans looking for work can't find a job. This should be the main focus of the Administration, but it isn't for some reason.

It's true that the Obama folks are spending money, but most of it is redistributive, taking from folks that they don't like and giving to folks that they like. Virtually none of the Obama spending creates any jobs in the private sector, which is what must be done if the economy is to improve.

Maybe getting back to full employment is not their real agenda. It is certainly beginning to look that way.
