We never had these problems until out-sourcing of jobs to foreign countries began, and Obama had nothing to do with that. People are unemployed because jobs were moved out of the country. Even after the corporations and rich got their tax breaks, they still did not bring jobs back. They must want this to become a third world country too. In fact, some CEO said as much when asked when he would bring jobs back--"only when there are not regulations, no taxes, and wages are 49 cents and hour".
