Priorities

ObamAd Inc doesn’t see us as people – it only sees us as wallets from which to take money.

As I listened to the news today, I heard the headline regarding the unexpected drop in the unemployment number, going back down to 10%.  And while this isn’t a bad thing, for it is better to see people going back to work, that number rang in my head…10%.  While it has gone down, 10% of Americans are still out of work.

But yet, the Senate seems hell-bent on pushing the Senate bill for health care reform through the upper chamber, touting that some 30-40 million Americans don’t have health care.  And then that number, 10%, came right back.

And while I’m sure I’m oversimplifying my analysis of the numbers, that 10% of Americans without health care doesn’t equal the 10% of Americans who don’t have work, it is startling that the government is about to spend a trillion dollars of unearned money (which no one has really figured out definitively from where it’s going to come) to fix a system that is not really broken (although it is flawed in a few places) yet the Administration and the Congress are doing nothing to promote jobs.

And then I remember Crazy Uncle Joe Biden’s statement about how the priority needed to be on a three-letter word, J-O-B-S.   After laughing at a mistake that my kid would have found amusing, I started shaking my head because J-O-B-S doesn’t really seem to be too important these days, based on how much cash is being thrown at the topic of health reform.

Now before any of you kool-aid drinking liberals out there start talking to me about the stimulus, well, just know that I am not buying that line.  The stimulus had nothing to do with really creating jobs because with only 6% of the money spent (again, unearned money from some invisible coffer) and the promise that the jobless rate wouldn’t go above 8% (another lie), I’m not convinced that the stimulus is helping anyone except Democrat cheerleaders, special interests, and pork projects. 

But did it ever occur to anyone in Washington that if more emphasis were put on creating jobs by making US companies more competitive, that the problem with health coverage may not be as pervasive?  That maybe health reform isn’t all that big of a concern if a person can’t even put food on his/her table. 

Americans have made frugality a priority this holiday season, but it would seem that the government doesn’t consider wise spending and fiscal responsibility an issue.

But then, when ever has government ever truly been in sync with the priorities of the people.  ObamAd Inc doesn’t see us as people – it only sees us as wallets from which to take money.
