President Barak Obama where are the jobs?

President Barak Obama

President Barak Obama where are the jobs?,Jobs that were promised in 2008.

On 4/2/11,The labor department reported that unemployment fell to 8.8% in March, lowest since March 2009.The news would appear that we are moving into a job expansion stage of a jobless economy.Economists predict that employers will add jobs for the rest of the year.

During the recession about 7.5 million jobs were lost. In March 2011, the unemployed rate dipped to 13.5 million from a high of 14.3 million. President Obama recently said that since taking office in 2009, his administration has created 1.5 million jobs.

A big factor in lower unemployment figures were that those workers who gave up looking for work during the downturn were not counted in the total unemployment calculations.Local governments were forced to layoff workers due to lower shortfalls in sale taxes and other sources.

Falling home prices and bank foreclosures continue to support a weak economy. The job market changed when factories added 17,000 jobs, retailers added 18,000 jobs ,financial services added 6,000 jobs ,educational and health services expanded employment to 45,000 jobs and leisure and hospitality added another37,000 jobs.

More than 75% of the nations 372 largest metro areas reported lower unemployment rates in Feb. One needs to consider that the gains may be distorted because of temporary retail employment after the holidays. Another factor in the increase of employment is that the auto industry and other manufacturing industries have increased production.

Businesses have been reluctant to hire because of the weak economy, increases in oil prices, concerns as to the healthcare reform laws , new government regulations and the uncertainty of what Congress and the President will agree to in controlling taxes, spending and finalizing the 2010-2011 budget including the 2012 budget.

Employers are also revaluating the kind of workers they want for the future. When the change comes and it’s time to ramp up production, will there be enough skilled workers to manage microprocessors, computers and other personal in the technology world of tomorrow.

A possible collapse in the recent gains in turning the United States economy around could occur if certain economic conditions are not brought under control by our government. The rising cost of gasoline, food, meat, transportation, the wars and riots in the middle east and let’s not forget recent newly approved government regulations can be considered worth watching.

Oil has topped $108 a barrel highest since 2008 and an average $3.69 a gallon has increased $0.86 from a year ago. President Obama says that the people must be patient to the increases in oil prices Congress and the President continues to depress the US oil industry by not releasing permits to drill for our country’s oil and natural gas reserves. To think that our government would not develop the nation’s own resources first in these troubled times is unconsciousable. How many times have we heard from our elected officials in Washington, ‘’ we must wean ourselves off the need of foreign oil’’. President Obama needs to release the permits to start to drill, presently there are 5 permits for US companies waiting for approval to drill in shallow water in the gulf. After 314 days, one permit was released to drill in 6,000 feet deep water. Let’s not forget the BP oil disaster was in only 5,000 feet deep water.

President Obama a few weeks ago returned from his South American trade mission. Soon after the president returned, a Brazilian oil company, Petrbas, received permits and a $2 billion financing package to drill in the gulf. George Soros, a supporter of Obama’s election for the presidency is a major stockholder in the state owned company. Congress needs to investigate how foreign companies can come before US companies.

In closing and to sum up the status of the recovery, one must consider how fuel prices are hurting businesses , the consumer and the United States economy. Rising food prices and commodities could derail the recovery and create another recession. President Obama and Congress needs to take immediate actions to put our nation on the right path to prosperity and put a stop to anymore deficit spending .

On 4/8/11 the US Government could possibly shut down because Congress and President Obama cannot agree and pass the 2010-2011 budget that was required to be passed by Oct.1,2010 when the President and his party, Democrats, had a majority control of both houses of Congress

In 2007-2008 Democrats controlled 2/3s of our government under the leadership of Speaker Pelosi and Senate majority leader Senator Reid With the election of Barak Obama, the Democrats controlled 100% of the government..

It takes time for each administration to correct the wrongs of the prior one, although I agree the problems are Obama's now. One issue that troubles me about the money though. Why are we still involved in these wars? We never should be nation building. Most of our money as a country goes to the military. I cannot even imagine how we could "win" in Afganistan, and we should never have lost so many lives over oil in Iraq. It's so sad. The R's need to stop the nonsense about complaining about Planned Parenthood and Head Start, a fraction of cash. And what's with calling social security, Medicare and Medicaid ENTITLEMENTS! We all paid for them out of our own hard worked for paychecks to protect us in our elder years. They should not be referred to as WELFARE. The R's are going way to far with this nonsense.

''social security, Medicare and Medicaid ENTITLEMENTS ''

Medicare and Medicaid are ENTITLEMENTS. Social security we paid into for future paybacks when we reach generally 65 years old.

LET'S understand that going to war was approved by Congress. The cost of the wars are approved by Congress.

We did not get ANY oil from Iraq,that's just political BS. WELFARE is for the down and out, welfare today is growing because of our governments inactions in washington.

''each administration to correct the wrongs of the prior one, although I agree the problems are Obama's''

Obama was in Congress when the Democrats took over majority control of congress in Jan 2007. The recession started in Dec.2007 and continues to today,2011.

Clinton left office with a balanced budget, George Bush's 8 years as President got us into this mess. And even the R's beloved Reagan realized that the rich should be taxed more. Why do the rich not have to pay more, and how do big corporations get off paying their CEO's millions of dollars in bonuses when we have sick people who can't even afford heathcare? Perhaps the SS, Medicare and Medicaid are called entitlements, but nobody will be able to retire, ever, except the rich trust fund babies like Bush who never worked a day in their lives anyway. Daddy just buys people like him a new business to screw up. I know we didn't get any oil from Iraq. We didn't get anything worthwhile in Iraq, except alot of dead people. Saddam Hussein could have been taken out with a special ops troop, and the Bush Administration lied to get Congress to approve that war. They said there were nuclear weapons there, and there were not. If the budget is so bad, money should be cut from the military budget. They have expensive planes that never get used. We do not need to be in Germany and occupying so many countries. This is why many countries in the world hate the US. I think we should use our reserves of oil in Alaska, so we aren't dependent on such unstable countries. BP should never be allowed to drill again after that terrible and irresponsible behavior.

Good response but check this out.

''Clinton left office with a balanced budget’ with the six years of help from a Republican majority controlled Congress.

''Bush's 8 years as President got us into this mess’ even with the disasters and inheriting a Clinton recession for the first 6 years and with a Republican Congress, things weren't so bad. Oil at $45.00 a barrel and unemployment at 4.6%. In 2007 ‘’we the people ‘’ voted in a Democrat majority Congress with Pelosi and Reid in charge of running the Congress with poor old George Bush.

Looks like Clinton got the best deal.

Reid is still in the Senate running the show with President Obama and Pelosi, who is now in minority charge in the House.

I guess ‘’ beauty is in the eye of the beholder’’ when we look and compare past history.

Let’s not forget our present President Obama in 2.5 years , he has been in control of big problems that he inherited. Maybe 4 years of Pelosi and Reid in charge didn‘t help him too much..

NOW THAT THE 2011 BUDGET HAS BEEN APPROVED, Congress

will debate on raising the national debt ceiling. President Obama and the Democrat controled Senate are confident that the debt ceiling will be raised to allow the government to spend more than the $14.3 trillion now in effect.

The Democrats control 2/3 of the government. The President said that he will veto any bill that revokes his Healthcare Bill. The house has voted already to revoke the bill. We all know that the Senate and Obama will not change the bill. The Republicans can't win.

If the Republicans had a backbone, they should stop talking about a deal on raising the National Debt Limits. Senator Ron Paul explained that the government will not default because there is enough money coming into the treasury to pay the creditors. The Republicans in the Senate can only philibuster any efforts to raise the debt. When May 15 comes around, Obama will be forced to use all unspent budget funds to pay the debt. Those unspent funds is Obama's slush funds to use in his re election. Yesterday the Obama administration approved a bonus of $2.6 billion for Medicare plans that need money to pay for coverage in the plans, that’s after Obamacare cut $500 billion from Medicare in the original bill.

The Republicans lost the battle in approving the 2011 budget. By not approving an increase in the National Debt, the people and the Republicans will get the cuts that they didn't get before. It’s time to get on the offensive and start squeezing President Obama and the Democrat Reid Senate.

Here are some facts that you will not see on ABC,CBS,NBC,

CNN and other News Medias.

Since Obama took office the government has hired some 55,000 new employees including 7,000 in Feb of this year, while the private sector has lost 15 million and in Feb lost another 36,000.

The average federal worker makes $108,000 compared to

$69,000 in the private sector. Another comparison is in fringe benefits paid out, the federal employee gets $40,000 and the private employee gets $9,000. Something is dramatically wrong in the marketplace. The government is the largest employer and under President Obama,they keep getting bigger.

IN a recent poll,the majority of taxpayers do not want Congress to raise the National Debt limits as it now stands at $ 14.5 trillion.

2- Unemployment under Bush was 5% for a few years.

3- Housing was destroyed by Frank & Dodd.

4- Obama says he has the greatest economic advisors, most just quit. They went back to study econ 101.

5- Today Donald Trump said, unemployment really about 21%.

6- Obama has no idea how to do anything. I don't even want him to go back to teaching, he is not as smart as proported. If he is, he wants to destroy America. H

Sept 22, 2011 in Florida, the Republican Presidential debate sponsored by Fox News and Google. Fox is accepting video questions for the candidates

2011 fiscal year ends on Sept 30, 2011 , CBO estimates another $1.3 deficit

The Stimulus bill expires on Sept.30, 2011, President Obama’s administration is attempting to get 15 more green projects approved. The Solyndra Solar company executives will be questioned next week by a Congressional committee.

The Obama ‘’ American Jobs bill ‘’ is being discussed in Congress. No talk has been heard from the President and the Senate regarding submitting a 2012 budget.

This week the Super Committee met and held an OPEN door meeting. Some DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN want the Super Committee to go after $ 4 trillion in savings instead of the $ 1.5 that they were instructed to find. The recent elections of 3 republicans may have open their eyes to what the people want Congress to accomplish. Leader Boehner has put Congress on notice that the House will not approve taxing the American people.

Under the leadership of President Obama, the Senate has not presented a budget proposal for 952 days going back to 2009.A 2012 budget has been approved by the Republican House in Feb and sent to the Senate awaiting to be presented to Senate members.

The fact is that 2/3’s of our government is not working in the best interest of the people. Where and when will Congress act to get the promised jobs? Blaming the 1/3 that is working is disingenuous and misleading.

On Dec 15,2011, Congress will need to vote the third time to continue funding the government.

Congress has passed an extension of the payroll tax cut and long-term jobless benefits, handing to President Obama one of his election-year PRIORITIES despite widespread concerns about the bill's DEFICT implications. For the 2012 election, Barak Obama wants legislation to be ‘’FAIR’’, REALLY!

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/17/house-a...

Today Feb. 17,2012, the Republican house voted to pass a 1 year extension to the Obama pay-roll tax credit for 160 million working Americans. The Senate followed within minutes approved the measure 60-36.Republicans GAVE UP on their demands that the tax cuts BE PAID FOR. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the package will INCREASE the budget deficit by $126 billion over the next five years.

"I cannot and I will not support legislation that extends the payroll tax holiday WITHOUT PAYING for it," said Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga. "This will add $100 billion to the deficit and it will create an even greater shortfall within the Social Security trust fund that already has over $100 billion SHORTFALL just in the last two years."

ON 2/13/10 President Obama signed PAY-GO legislation that require new spending to be offset with budgeted cuts. The legislation pushed thru by the President and a Democrat super majority Congress required all new spending to be deficit neutral.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0210/32921.ht...

The end result of passing the bill without reducing spending, as required by the pay-go law, will be at the expense of the American taxpayer. The funds to supplement the social security trust fund will be borrowed and increase the National Debt. At a congressional hearing today, a Congressman stated that the actual unfunded liabilities of our government is $96 TRILLION, parts of which is Medicare, Social Security, government Pensions and other non mentionables.

WE HAVE A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT! President Lincoln once said, ‘’ To remain silent is to be a coward ‘’. Senator Coburn needs support. The Senator Coburn report '' WASTE IN GOVERNMENT'' fellow Americans there are many places to cut spending!

, President Obama's speech in Ohio again mentioned what he had inherited( $1 TRILLON DEFICIT) from the Bush administration and the Democrat controlled Congress (2007,2008). Senator Obama was a member in the Senate in 2007 and 2008.Since Jan. 2007 to 2012, the Democrats have had a 2/3's control of Congress. From Jan. 2009 to Sept. 2010, the Democrats had 100% control of the government. To BLAME the other party for failures of his party is disingenuous by the President.

Note that the deficit in the month of May 2012 was $1.25 trillion, the President hardly mentions jobs and the economy while on the campaign trail.

''Since Obama took office, the government has hired some 55,000 new employees ''

President Obama in less than 4 years has increased government employment( the public sector) by over 130,000 employees, another record.


owurakwasip 4 years ago

Hi Jon Ewall,

At the time (2008), Obama was an outsider; and he did not know the extension of the mess he was about to inherit.

Besides, he has been obstructed by the Republicans and their ilk, like the Chamber of Commerce, and job creation by the private sector has been stifled by big banks and corporations, who were against him and his policies.

The only reason for that was that they wanted him to fail; though, they would say that they did not have any intention of doing so. (Tell that to Rush Limbaugh).

Only "those in the Conservative loop" (like yourself) would know the truth about what they have in mind for Obama.

May they be punished by their own thoughts.

Jon Ewall,

The Republican Party or the Conservatives are just running the U.S. House of Representatives down to the ground.

They are not in power to legislate for anything, let alone jobs.

What they are doing now is to put stumbling blocks in President Obama's way by refusing to pass his job proposals.

Their plan to cut taxes for big banks and corporations is bogus.

That (plan) has led the country's economy into the situation it was in presently.

The middle class must be rebuilt for more prosperity to come to all Americans; instead of the "old system" by the Republicans that made the rich, richer and the poor, poorer.

Again, let them (Republicans) get out of Obama's way and the economy will return to being prosperous.

Hi Jon Ewall,

.... and you should continue by saying, "the Republicans have been sitting on their hands ever since; thank you."

However, Americans have known all along that they (Republicans) have been working behind the scenes to undermine President Barack Obama and the Democrats. (Just ask Rush Limbaugh).

If not, how did Speaker John Boehner know that "job creators" were angry with Obama?

If there was no sabotage going on in the Republican ranks, he would not have said that.

Also, how did the "tea party" come about; and how come very few jobs have been created continuously for months in the private sector?

Stop being a child... and a cry baby. Try to think clearly.

In other words, grow up, Jon Ewall.

Try to get by the propaganda.


owurakwasip 4 years ago

Hi Jon Ewall,

President Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president on January 20th, 2009.

So, what has 2007 and 2008 got to do with him?

Actually, the jobs that are created by the government are mainly generated in the civil service sector and also for the infrastructure (Roads, bridges, tunnels, etc.).

The private sector is where most of the jobs to grow the economy are produced; and government creates the environment for that to happen.

As far as making that possible, he (Obama) has given incentives in the form of tax cuts to small businesses for them to hire more workers; but are they doing so? No.

Big businesses and banks have also been given every opportunity to expand and grow; but somehow their cooperation is found wanting, because of political reasons.

Click the link below and read some more about how the Republicans are not helping him any.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100014240527023037...

The Republican Patty's main interest is to see Obama fail; they want him to be a one-term president, and that is not fair to him or to the United States of America.

‘’have to say that I am sorry to have hurt your feelings in some way.

I didn't mean to.’’ You didn’t hurt my feeling, the issues were the insinuation of half truths, mud slinging, facts mixed with hearsay and the false information in the hub.

Please can you point out the true facts of your opinions and allow me to be able to correct or debate. A Response will be appreciated,

NOTE THAT THE LINK did not work

Hi Jon Ewall,

It was your own link; and so you must have a copy of the text in your files or somewhere. I just printed and inserted it (link) for your reference.

Analyze the whole hub, and you will realize that there is no ample evidence of Obama making any comments or statements and linking himself to certain issues that are mentioned in the hub.

The dates of the said comments or statements cannot be found to coincide with them (comments or statements), when one does a little research of them (dates).

The simple fact is that you know where I stand, when it comes to expressing my political views; just as I know yours. We can hardly appreciate each other's (views).

Don't worry about the composition of the text; it is alright.

I was just pulling your leg about it.

'' The dates of the said comments or statements cannot be found to coincide with them (comments or statements)'' An interesting comment as to not finding the information. The mainstream media and the left blogs don't report most of what I write. In the last 3 years of writing on the hub, I was corrected only 2 times. The corrections were acknowledged and appreciated. As to your political views and mine, that's what makes the world go around.

Thanks for the posts and the debate.

Congress is working on an immigration bill. Farm labor is an issue for attaining citizenship because Americans will not take the work that illegals are doing.
