"In arguing for his stimulus, Obama promised 'shovel-ready' jobs, which gave us the mental image of construction workers in hard hats repairing our highways and bridges. But while four out of five who lost their jobs were men, more than half the jobs created by the stimulus were for women in education or government, where no hard hats are needed.

"Two reasons explain this disconnect. The feminists had a tantrum and demanded stimulus jobs, and Obama wants to make more people dependent on government rather than the private sector (aka, socialism)."

"The Obama Administration desperately wants a strong economic recovery, or so it says, but does it have any idea how to encourage one? It says it wants job growth, but its policies keep raising the cost of creating new jobs. It says it wants small business to take risks, but it keeps reducing the rewards if those risks succeed. And it says it wants banks to lend more money, even as it keeps threatening to punish bankers if they make too many bad loans or make too much money."

"You might wonder: what's the rush on health care reform?" asks John Shadegg, Arizona Republican. "With little time to review or debate, and with no hope whatsoever to make any changes to the massive government takeover of health care, Democrats are hoping to cram as much junk into their legislation as possible, as fast as possible."

They also don't want you to find out that you're going to end up paying more for your health care insurance, despite promises by President B.O. to the contrary.

"In speech after speech," reported the New York Times on July 23, 2008, "Senator Barack Obama has vowed that he will lower the country's health care costs enough to 'bring down premiums by $2,500 for the typical family.'"

But as Congressman Shadegg points out, "the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has stated that health care premiums in the individual market will be 10 to 13 percent higher than under current law. That's an average increase of $300 for an individual policy, and $2,100 for a family policy."

"Do your friends and neighbors know their premiums will go up, not down?" Shadegg asks. "Do they know that not only will they be forced into a government plan, but they will have to pay more for what they don't want?"

They won't. Unless you and I tell them. And FAST!
