Obama’s Speech; I reject!

September 9, 2011

“I reject the idea that we need to ask people to choose between their jobs and their safety. I reject the argument that says, for the economy to grow, we have to roll back protections that ban hidden fees by credit card companies, or rules that keep our kids from being exposed to mercury, or laws that prevent the health insurance industry from short-changing patients. I reject the idea that we have to strip away collective bargaining rights to compete in a global economy.”

Thank God for this speech. Republican legislators were just salivating to repeal laws protecting children from mercury. Of course, those CFL’s the Greens like are full of the stuff, unlike incandescent bulbs that don’t have any. . . but I ramble.

Until Obama rejects the notion an agency of the Federal government has the right to interfere in a company’s decision as to where to locate manufacturing plants (among other things), there isn’t going to be a lot hiring any time soon.

So, we got some tax cuts, but all the threats overhanging the economy will, apparently, remain in place.
