Yeah, It's Working All Right

13 million Americans unemployed.  Half of them have been out of work for over half a year.  Most of them with no hope of finding a job.   Half of America's graduating teens can't find employment.  What's going on?

The Administration’s foot-dragging on free trade agreements has killed job creation. The extended moratorium on oil drilling, followed by new regulations, killed job creation. President Obama’s refusal to build the Keystone XL pipeline killed jobs. Ever-expanding Environmental Protection Agency regulations kill jobs. Extending unemployment insurance—part of the failed “stimulus”—was a humanitarian gesture, but it killed jobs. Even increasing deficit spending has a job-killing effect, the opposite of what Obama espouses.

And then there’s Obamacare, which if it goes into full effect will be one of the biggest job killers of modern times.

To all of this, President Obama said, “We tried our plan—and it worked.”
