Keith Fimian has released a new website, and I must admit that I like the clean simplicity of the site. I am definitely excited to see Fimian’s new media efforts over the course of the next year.
Lately, with unemployment numbers soaring and many Americans are now losing jobs due to a weakened economy that continues to worsen by the minute, one has to ask how President Obama’s stimulus plan is impacting Americans.
A recent Reuters article indicates that unemployment will be rising to 12-13 percent. What impact will this have on the mid-term elections in 2010? I think it is going to provide a tidal wave against the Democrats in Congress and provide serious disappointment for President Obama. Right now, Americans are sick and tired of the (pardon the language) bull crap excuses that Congress and Obama have been giving for the unemployment and economic downfalls. Obama says the stimulus is working one minute, then says it is not working as planned.
There is no reason that we should be facing 12-13 percent unemployment, especially if we follow free market principles. Perhaps, Congress needs to take leadership and go back to the drawing board by working to balance the budget and pay our deficit off. Another idea would be to lower the corporate tax rates for businesses. Another thing Congress definitely needs to take a glimpse at is cutting unnecessary spending on future stimulus and other government expansion programs.
Right now, the Stimulus is not working as planned, and we will be paying for it in the long run through rising unemployment numbers and an economic downturn.
