Obama to Kill Jobs Council
Breitbart ^ | 1/27/13 | staff

Posted on 01/27/2013 2:55:01 PM PST by Nachum

Now that President Obama has been re-elected, the vaunted jobs council is about to meet its demise.

The Obama administration’s original announcement of a jobs council back in 2011 surprised few observers of the partisan political scene; the council was obviously designed as a fig leaf to cover up the administration’s complete lack of direction on economic policy. During its two year existence, that fig leaf council has met just four times formally, and just 18 times informally for “listening and action sessions” – i.e. gobbledygook – in different locations around the country. And while President Obama has suggested that the council is a “work council,” making proposals the administration took seriously, the facts belie those glowing words. Jay Carney even told the press last year that Obama didn’t really care about the jobs council:

There’s no specific reason [he hasn’t met with the jobs council], except the president has obviously got a lot on his plate. But he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy, about ideas that he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help create jobs.

Well, he’s already killed the economy, so... no need for a “jobs council.”

Is it possible to find out how much taxpayer money was spent on this so-called Jobs panel? It sounds like the entire thing was a hoax.

Not surprising since the current POTUS’s Administration is a hoax (a hex?) upon us all.

I think the author made a mistake and put the word “Council” at the end of the title.

I wonder if he’ll use his “over/under skeet rifle” to do the deed.

He’s been killing jobs for years. What possible reason does he have for a jobs council?

Eggactly! A mere recognition of the ‘new normal’. Why work when the government will meet your needs?

This maybe the dumbest question i ever asked but i’m going ask it.

Do these clowns on the council get paid and if so how much?

Here are their recommendations. They pretty much shot themselves in the foot by suggesting tax and regulatory reductions as the best means to spur economic growth and create jobs.
