A more biting criticism was leveled at Obama by the left-wing journal Rolling Stone in its Dec. 10 issue, which lambasts the president in an eight-page attack article called "Obama's Big Sellout." Rolling Stone is in shock at discovering that Obama's socialism means payoffs to his rich friends and Wall Street contributors while spreading the poverty around (instead of the wealth).
The health care bill is another direct attack on the young people who voted for Obama. The Democrats' plan will force young people to buy insurance they don't want in order to subsidize expensive care of seniors. Of course, young people will be stuck with a staggering debt hanging over them for the rest of their lives.
Obama's promise to allow 20 million illegal aliens to stay in the United States is another broadside attack on the job prospects of young American men. Obama's immigration policy betrays our own black and white high school dropouts who desperately need entry-level and other minimum-wage jobs to start building a life.
The Center for Immigration Studies reports that there are an additional 18.7 million native-born Americans with only a high-school diploma or less who are not in the count of unemployed/underemployed because they are not even looking for a job. The current employment of 7 million to 8 million illegal aliens is a major cause of unemployment for our ample supply of native-born high school dropouts.
Only the private sector can create useful jobs that offer hope for the future. Small business, which has the capacity of creating good jobs, hasn't been hiring since Obama was elected because he is threatening them with tax increases plus a mandate to provide health insurance for their workers that employers can't afford.
If Obama continues with his current financial, immigration, international trade and globalist policies, he will give us a repeat of the 1930s Great Depression. To understand and reverse Obama's attack on American jobs, which is dashing hopes and opportunities for the young, all congressional candidates should read Jerome Corsi's newest book, "America for Sale."
Corsi also explains Obama's policies that are destroying the dollar and wiping out the middle class by exporting blue-collar and white-collar jobs while importing an underclass. Economic hard times are ahead unless the voters call a halt in the 2010 congressional elections.
