Yes, anything to keep spending our tax dollars on fuel for Air Force One, limos, extra security etc. He could speak daily from the Rose Garden for free, but much more fun to travel and campaign on the public dole. Thanks Mr Obama for expanding the unnecessary debt a bit more.
More campaigning. Maybe if Obama spent some time negotiating with the senate and house and learned the art of compromise we would have something other than a stagnant economy. What on earth were people thinking when they voted for this guy?
Texas? He must be planning on explaining his decision on the Keystone pipeline. Go get em, Mr. Wizard!
Has Obama ever had an economic plan?
Obama's plan of stimulating job growth by stimulating the economy is working. The Republicans' plan of tax cuts for the wealthy and budget cuts for the governments, City, County and State, is not working. More than 1 M jobs for the private sector and -500,000 jobs for the Repubs.
Obama NEVER stops campaigning at taxpayer expense. Obama's plan: Borrow, spend, tax. Borrow, spend, tax. Borrow, spend, tax. Obama's rosy budget forecasts for the next 10 years predict a total of $8.1 TRILLION dollars in budget deficits and new borrowing. Obama's average annual budget deficits for his first 4 years is $1.274 trillion versus Bush's annual average of $251 billion over 8 years, which included ALL costs of wars, 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina. 665,000 unemployed workers gave up all hope of finding a job and dropped out of the labor force in March and are no longer officially counted as unemployed. More people are out of work today than the day Obama took office in January 2009. Obama within weeks of taking office spent $787 billion on an obvious failure of a stimulus and weeks later spent another $410 billion on an omnibus spending bill loaded with pork, accounting for $1.2 trillion of fiscal year 2009's total deficit of $1.42 trillion. Remember when Obama PROMISED to cut the budget deficit HE created in half by the end of his first term? And you wanted "four more years!" of that, did you?
His economic plan is pre-k funding and raising minimum wage to 9$. This doesn't need a trip. If this is the plan to get the economy going then we are in no problems whatsoever. Was this plan submitted on a napkin written by crayons?
Is he going to stand on the pulpit again and yell go team, we can do this, let's stand up and fight again routine? Old. If your boss at work did this everyweek while in the field watching the company continue to crumble would you keep believing the speech? Yea me too.
So his "economic proposals" that he intends to sell with his road show are "to dramatically expand pre-kindergarten programs and raise the minimum wage to $9 per hour." Those aren't economic proposals. One is spending more taxpayer money and the other is spending more small business owners' money.
"More than 1 M jobs for the private sector and -500,000 jobs for the Repubs." Please do post the sources of your supposed fact.
