Late last Saturday evening, a day and time that's truly odd for an American President to introduce any new plan or program, Obama sent a request to Congress to immediately act to appropriate an unspecified amount of emergency funding. This was to be used to keep the jobs of teachers, police, and fireman from being effected by the ongoing budget cuts in state and local governments. This President, who has done nothing to create any real private sector positions, finds himself compelled to fight for the jobs of the union personnel who got him into office.
Of course, the readers of this blog know that I object to any such actions because it only sustains the out-of-control spending by too many Democratically controlled states; many of whom find themselves nearing financial bankruptcy.
Interestingly, many Democrats also seem to be balking at this request for more spending because they know that the voters may be reaching their breaking point. At the same time, I find it interesting that the mainstream media might be tiring, too, of the outrageous and extravagant spending of this President. This is clearly evidenced by an opinion piece in yesterday's normally left-wing Washington post titled: Myths about the teacher layoff crisis. I think it is a very interesting and truthful article that exposes the lies that Obama and the Democrats are willing to put forth to support their personal political agenda. Please take the time to read it.
