Democrats are justifying President Barack Obama's latest budget by claiming trillion-dollar deficit spending will drive the continued mediocre employment increases, and more jobs will lower the deficit in the future.
The employment data show it is the low skilled who are out of work. The low skilled include educated people with skills that are not competitive in today's economy.
Let's assume all the low skilled get hired. If hired, they will enter or re-enter the work force in the lower income range. In the Obama budget, these are the people who pay no federal income taxes, and they are going to help reduce the deficit? How does this justify ignoring reforming entitlements,57 percent of the budget? This budget is a fraud and is designed to deceive the American public. Where does this lead? Watch the news from Greece.
