    WHERE ARE THE JOBS?

    Bush sent them overseas.
    Tax cuts for the rich did not create any jobs.



    Bush Policies Encourage Companies to Send U.S. Jobs Overseas

    Aug. 13, 2004—Instead of creating new jobs and championing the interests of America’s workers, the Bush administration actively supports policies that raise the nation’s record trade deficits, subject workers to unfair trade practices and increase the number of good jobs sent overseas, according to The Bush Record on Shipping Jobs Overseas, a new AFL-CIO issue brief.
    The brief finds President George W. Bush refuses to fix the flawed international trade, tax and investment policies that destroy good American jobs. Instead, he pursues policies that further erode the standard of living of U.S. workers. For example:

    Bush supports tax breaks for companies that move production offshore and other policies that destroy American jobs.

    Bush is actively negotiating trade agreements that do not contain enforceable workers’ rights, such as the right to form a union. The Bush administration refuses to enforce workers’ rights provisions in existing agreements.

    Bush’s budget cuts shortchange programs designed to help displaced workers and protect workers’ rights overseas.

    Obama’s stimulus created jobs.



    Economists agree: Stimulus created nearly 3 million jobs
    The White House says the multiyear $814 billion stimulus program passed by Congress in 2009 boosted employment by 2.5 million to 3.6 million jobs and raised the nation's annual economic output by almost $400 billion. A recent study by two prominent economists generally agrees, crediting the pump-priming with averting "what could have been called Great Depression 2.0."

    Had it not been for Obama, the unemployment rate would be much worse.

    Unemployment rate of 9.1% is better than 15%. 9.1% is not going to hurt Obama at all.

    It's the economy, stupid...
    :confused:
    Analysis: Obama's job security about job creation
    Weakening recovery tests foundation of president's optimistic economic message; President Barack Obama cannot escape one giant vulnerability as he bids to keep his job: There are millions of voters who still don't have one.
