New Obama metric: “Jobs supported”

A brand new slogan has been created.

"Jobs Supported" is now replacing the old worn out and failed “saved or created".

This seems to be a desperate attempt to funnel even more "failure money" to broken education systems that can't seem to support themselves through normal local tax structures (corruption inc.).

This article breaks down the numbers and proposed expenditures ("bills to you and me").

It looks to me like this will only, at best, keep the current unemployment levels at current levels and will not reduce the problem at all.



Old and busted: Jobs “saved or created.” New hotness: Jobs “supported.” In attempting to advance the argument for Barack Obama’s new jobs stimulus plan, the White House has decided to create a new term that has, er, even less meaning than their previous measure:


The American Jobs Act Will Support Nearly 400,000 Education Jobs—Preventing Layoffs and Allowing Thousands More to Be Hired or Rehired: The President’s plan will more than offset projected layoffs, providing support for nearly 400,000 education jobs—enough for states to avoid harmful layoffs and rehire tens of thousands of teachers who lost their jobs over the past three years.


"Supports" 400,000 existing jobs that are mostly unionized, and "allowing" a few thousand more hires....maybe.



To start the process of estimating educator jobs at risk, the Administration refers to a June, 2011 paper by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (a left-of-center think tank). This paper quantifies recent and projected shortfalls in state budgets.

The Administration then makes various assumptions about how the projected shortfalls would be filled. In effect, they assume first that shortfalls would be filled by a combination of tax increases and spending reductions, and then that spending cuts would be applied proportionally across all categories including education. As the Administration materials state, “These spending reduction numbers were then converted into estimates of educator jobs at risk based on estimates of average teacher compensation by state. These calculations implied that, if spending reductions had their full negative impact on education staffing, up to 280,000 educator jobs across the country would be at risk in the 2011-2012 school year.”


Many assumptions here....all at our expense.

This does not sound concrete.....to many cracks.


With taxpayers and average citizens in dire straights already, how can this "bill" possibly help 99% of the citizens ?

As usual, this spending will only "help" a selected few, and will of course, make many "special" people hidden in the system richer. The "help" to children will be minimal at best. And it does not appear to address the pension problems for those very same "educators" !

AND, we still don't know for sure what other "add ons" will be included at the final moments.
Things like more pork barrel back room cigar smoked giveaways !

Same old legislation.....keep the 99% in the gutter and target a select few.

Too Funny! The wordsmith never stops as he hopes that no one will notice his verbal 3 card monte scheme.

Jobs Supported... Like the $80 million/job spent at a California solar farm. 15 jobs.

How about "Jobs Bought"?
