Letter: GOP, Not Obama, Is Killing Jobs

Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to Ronald Piretti’s Sept. 14 letter “President Is Killing The Job Market.”

Ronald Piretti, your moronic statements regarding President Obama reflect the ignorance which the new, repugnant Republican Party has counted on in order to enact their agenda of further destroying the fabric of this country.

In response to your ridiculous statement, “Obama is killing the job market on purpose to make Americans more dependent on the government,” I suggest you read Robert Draper’s book Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives.

On the night of President Obama’s inauguration, the following Republicans met for a dinner party in the Caucus Room, a high-end establishment in Washington, D.C.: Eric Cantor (Virginia), Kevin McCarthy (California), Paul Ryan (Wisconsin), Pete Sessions (Texas), Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Pete Hoekstra (Michigan), Dan Lungren (California), Jim DeMint (South Carolina), Jon Kyl (Arizona), Tom Coburn (Oklahoma), John Ensign (Nevada), Bob Corker (Tennessee) and Newt Gingrich.

At that meeting, they made the conscious decision to undermine the economic recovery of the United States for the sole purpose of political advancement. This happened before President Obama set foot in the White House.

For the last four years, every jobs bill introduced to the House has either been denied, or not even so much as brought up for a vote, up to and including the American Jobs Act, which by all accounts would have produced over 1 million new jobs.

Every one of the people at that dinner party should be brought up on charges of treason, sabotage and domestic terrorism against the United States.

  1. Romney has ideas, Obama has failed.

    Romney will reform Fannie and Freddie; sell the 200,000 foreclosed homes that the government owns. These homes are presently unoccupied and are responsible for neighborhood blight and crime. Romney wants to stimulate sales by making short-sales easier and less expensive by replacing Dodd-Frank Act. This will also allow banks to make loans to small businesses and families with good credit.

    Romney understands that the Federal Government has more than 80 overlapping job training programs that have failed. Romney understands that there are not enough jobs for trained workers. Romney believes by reallocating resources he will stimulate the economy the right way, by assisting private companies to provide affordable energy. Romney is confident that his plan will allow small-business entrepreneurs to produce 12 million more jobs.

    Obama criticized Romney’s plan as an “inside job”. Obviously Obama would think of describing Romney’s publicly presented plan in those terms, since no President in the history of America has been as secretive as Obama.

    “We have a president who says he can’t fix Washington,” Romney said. “I can. I will lead. I will get the job done.”
