    Not revive unemployment it is remove unemployment.
    Sorry for the error.

    Well, for starters he bailed out the biggest corporations that financed his elections. Then he cranked up the dial in Afghanistan. Now, we all wait for a tax increase.

    Now, isn’t it strange that the progressive income tax system's last bracket is $250,000 and up? That covers a lot of ground, right? That spans the upper-middle-class to the richest of the rich. Someone ought to fix our tax system (with a fair consumption or flat wealth tax).

    If Obama was serious about growing the economy, he'd allow new industries (like hemp, which produces a cheaper, renewable, and more efficient/stronger ethanol and paper pulp). He'd be improving infrastructure by building roads and sponsoring a Manhattan-style (or X-prize-style) mad-rush for Alternative Energy sources—as to create new jobs. Oh, and he'd get us out of these endless wars.

    But now Obama has pissed off his base (liberals) and his rivalry (conservatives) by attempting to appease both groups by taking the worst out of every idea.

    Phew. I'm not voting for him again. That's for damn sure.

    His policies have actually hurt unemployment and kept it high. With all the additional costs to employers related to health care and the uncertainties related to taxes and regulation, business can not effectively plan and forecast.  Without being able to do so, many go out of business, others who are making money are socking it away until things get more predictable.
