What is that? The economy, stupid. Remember that? What Unemployment? The free market economic system has been hijacked by corrupt politicians and feel good liberalism. I continue to be amazed by the political interference in our economy and by the supposed economic stimulation that government apparently provides it. For example I find it comical that Democratic pollster Mark Penn received an economic stimulus contract worth almost $6 million to work on a public-relations campaign to promote the national transition from analog to digital television. Why you may ask? Was this critical to our economy? He made the taxpayers pay him $6 million for 39 days work and has the nerve to state that it saved three jobs. Yes, three jobs. Thus your tax money paid $2 million dollars to save each one of those jobs. I wonder how many people in Connecticut who are unemployed know that? I think $6 million of taxpayers monies could have been much better spent. Where is the outcry by taxpayers or the media? How many actually know of this scam? And the list goes on and on.
Our economy will only recover when we allow the free market system to work again without governmental and political interference. We have an economically illiterate administration working hand in hand with an economically illiterate Democratic Congress destroying our economy on a daily basis so as to promote their inept ego, power and glorification of failed liberal policies.
The days are marching on and November 2010 will be here. A new economic dawn will occur for our economy with a new Congress then. 2012 will follow as quick with a new President. I can only hope those who are unemployed can last that long. Also if you unemployed why not ask Mark Penn for a job-why not make him share his liberal wealth?
