    Gee whiz, moreluck don't you know that bhos plans to make this his #1 goal in his second term, right after the FLOTUS has visited every single country in the world at least once.

    And here's how they plan on making more gov't jobs............
    (PJ Tatler) – On April 13, 2011, the EPA publishing its ruling that Texas must comply with the Clean Air Transport Rule (CATR). Using the CATR, the EPA is set to include Texas in the national sulfur dioxide program, without any comment from any of the state’s stakeholders, political leaders or industry leaders allowed. No public review, just bam!, Texans get the EPA jackboot. The EPA’s effort to strong arm Texas away from its successful and flexible state-level clean air program, established in the 1990s and which has enjoyed bipartisan support, and into the EPA’s less effective national program has been building since President Obama’s inauguration. The CATR ruling may bring that battle to a head.
    As one might expect, the mostly Republican Texas Congressional delegation is very unhappy with the EPA’s actions. The Texas Democrats apparently took a pass.
    It’s a rare moment when Republicans and unions agree on much, but as it turns out, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union agrees: The EPA is dangerously overreaching in its CATR finding.
    The letter strongly protests the EPA’s failure to allow for any comment on the rule change, and expresses the IBEW’s concern that “including Texas in the final CATR for SO2 would result in significant increases in electricity rates, temporary or even permanent shutdown of existing coal-fired power plants, reduced capacity reserves and enormous job losses. This action would directly jeopardize the jobs of approximately 1,500 IBEW members working at six different power plants across the state of Texas.”

    Why does the J-1 Student Visa Program still exist while unemployment is still way to high ?
    These summer jobs could easily go to some US kids, but instead foreign students are given them.

    This thread was posted by Moreluck. Where are the jobs ?
    She is a rich person, as she has posted several times, or atleast well off.

    She drives a foreign car, doesn't eat out because of no cheap steak houses in her area, shops online to save a few bucks or just to avoid the hassle to actually shop at a store.
    Now, she is just a typical example, - if more and more Americans do as Moreluck does, - then don't complain about job creation, because jobs can't be created if you don't spend your money on US goods and services.

    Regardless of where the car was built, it was more than likely purchased at an American owned and operated dealership which employees many people and I'm sure she paid local, state and federal taxes. If she doesn't go to steakhouses she more than likely buys steak at the supermarket and prepares it at home, supermarkets provide jobs and there are taxes paid by herself and all those employees. The products she buys on line from Penney's is handled by employees of Penney's or one of their logistics partners and she pays taxes on those products, UPS, USPS or Fedex delivers the order. Sounds to me like she is doing her part.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    As our population continues to grow, technological advances continue to lower the number of jobs, especially in the service sector.

    This wasn't about paying taxes !
    Wow, and who doesn't shop for groceries ? So, everyone does their part !

    So, you truly believe if we all bought our own groceries and cooked them, and we all shopped online, and we all bought foreign made cars, we will all be doing our part to create more domestic jobs ?

    Paying taxes is most certainly part of the over all picture, that is the local, state and fed's revenue. Buying a foreign made car doesn't create domestic jobs, but buying them from local dealerships do. Cooking all your meals at home doesn't create restaurant jobs but helps in the supermarkets.

    The best way to create more domestic jobs is to stop buying ANYTHING foreign made, but we all know the likelihood of that even being probable is slim to none.

    Bottom line, you attempt to malign Moreluck was a "fail".

    If you use O's ATM example....someone is needed to fix the technology, fill the machine, clean the machine, etc. The machine may eliminate 1 job, but creates 4 more along the way.

    You want Americans to spend more.....yet you've talked about taxing them more. You can't have things both ways!

    We pay taxes for junk food at the grocery store, like coke, chips, chocolate milk and the likes.

    Didn't say spend more, just said spend it locally, and made in USA if possible.
