Obama’s Job-Killing Machine Rolls On

December 21, 2011 12:12

Obama tells anyone who’ll listen that from dawn until dusk he’s focused on job creation. Apparently, no one in his administration listens, since day after day they keep making job-killing decisions. – IBD

In fact, when it comes to jobs, Obama’s policies are so bad that even his union pals are starting to notice.

The latest to take notice is the Communications Workers of America union. It reported last month that AT&T’s $39 billion bid for T-mobile would have brought 5,000 quality jobs back from overseas and created “as many as 96,000 additional quality jobs in the build-out of high-speed wireless broadband.”


Then there’s Obama’s own decision to put the protection of environmentalist votes over the creation of tens of thousands of good jobs by delaying his Keystone XL pipeline decision until after the election.

Terry O’Sullivan, general president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America was astonishingly blunt in his response: “The administration chose to support environmentalists over jobs — job-killers win, American workers lose.”


The list goes on. The medical device tax — tucked into ObamaCare — the net neutrality rule, the anti-drilling policies, and so on all get enacted without any apparent regard for the impact they’ve have on jobs.

Rather than spend all day thinking about job creation, Obama would do the country much better if he spent that time rooting out his own job-destroying policies.
