The solution of Obama and the Marxist/Progressive is to wage the minimum wage. Their other solution is to increase the government handouts and pay for those handouts by increasing taxes. Both solutions are wrong. When minimum wages are increased layoffs take place in greater numbers which requires more revenue or debt. All of these Marxist/Progressive solutions are the reason we continue in this type of economy.
The real solution is to unleash the capitalist economy that has proven to be the solution out of all government induced downturns. Get rid of all the strangling regulations. Lower the corporate taxes and stop all the anti-business law suits. Sound business activity has and will generate high paying jobs for Americans. We could start by building the pipeline. We could have real tax reform. We could stop the tyrannical actions of the government agencies like the EPA, IRS, and DOJ.
A government does not and never has produced prosperity. Every job the government creates is a negative to true growth. What government can do to build prosperity is to get out of the way. We have seen s continuous effort by the government to centralize commerce. This has always ended in failure. Obama believes he is the most capable to control and direct. He has failed economically as badly as he has failed in foreign policy. America, do take note and reverse our direction from a Marxist society to a free and capitalist society again. We will see growth and prosperity once again.
