Obama Reveals How to Get National Unemployment Rate to 6%

President Obama discusses how the nation can lower its unemployment rate by nearly two percent

President Obama addressed a group of digital journalists at the White House Wednesday stating that the construction industry and state and local governments are weighing down the U.S. economy. If those two sectors were recovering as they have in previous recessions, the unemployment rate would be in the 6% range, said the president.

This isn’t the first time Obama has talked about the correlation between an improved infrastructure and a stronger economy.  The president has long fought to send more aid to state and local governments, as well as boosting infrastructure spending.

These two areas received billions of dollars from his 2009 stimulus act, which he hoped would reverse the nation’s economic drop. However, Congress has resisted funneling more money to assist these sectors.

“This country could greatly benefit from a major rebuilding — roads, bridges, ports, high-speed internet, high-speed rail,” Obama said.

    A sharp salute to President Obama! He has and is doing everything that he can to get this economy moving and get the jobless rate down. However, Pres. O. is busier than a one-leg man in an ass-kicking contest! He has to work on the countries’ problems with one hand and fight the Republicans with the other!

    The Republicans have shown themselves to be anti-American in everyway. They would rather see people continue to suffer and the country struggle than to work with Pres. Obama for the good of all. This is beyond partisanhip. This nothing more than pure racism! They simply cannot abide having a black Commander-in-Chief and the sweetner is: he even has an African name after they took our names away!

    The “old-style” Republicans like Eisenhower, Rockerfeller and Tricky Dick Nixon would be ashamed of this current Teabagger crop of the GOP. We may not have agreed with their policies but they were reasonable men. For the most part they put the good of the country ahead of Party interests.

    Only a first class moron would vote for a Republican today! Anyone who is black and calls him/herself a Republican is nothing but An Uncle Tom, Aunt Jermimia, Sambo or any other derogatory label one would assign to such a loathsome self-hating, cowardly individual. I hope this post hit some of those “Uncle Tom Negroes” in the face like a cold pitcher of ice water and wake them the F. Up!

    Want to get the unemployment rate down to 6%? Vote out the Republicans!
