Fewer Americans will be returning to the work force after the traditional Labor Day holiday. Labor force participation is at the lowest point since the malaise of the Carter presidency. President Obama's economic policies have guaranteed a lower standard of living for Americans.
The Laborers' International Union has in its legislative affairs office a lobbyist who pleaded guilty in a fraud case despite a federal law banning convicts from overseeing unions' finances.
Consider the effect of President Obama's economic policies: Middle-class income has shrunk; consumer confidence is at a 10-month low; corporate-profit growth is well below last year's level; investment is down; and the employment rate climbed to 8.3 percent, with the largest-ever proportion of the long-term unemployed in their ranks.
A majority of Americans disapprove of what President Obama has done in office. He promised hope and change but delivered disappointment and stagnation. The unemployment rate is stuck at 9.1 percent. The poverty rate is at 15.1 percent, tied for the worst performance since the Census started tracking numbers in 1959. White House policies of class warfare and redistribution are impoverishing America, and the public is starting to feel worked over.
