The more people out of work (private sector only, though - gov. work is to be desired), the more people reliant on the government. The more people reliant on the government, the more Democratic constituents. Plain and simple.
Obama's agenda is, and always has been, crystal clear. The Democratic party and the prog-libs have ever only had one goal and objective - power and control.
Any fool who thinks differently is just another farm animal waiting to be led by the nose by his or her "betters." Those who voted for Obama have done nothing but sell their own souls into neo-slavery.
Gov. dependency = weakness and being owned by your gov. masters. Those who think they're wielding power by extorting wealth are ignorant tools.
