Don’t say President Obama has never kept any of his promises. In 2008, Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle, “under my plan…electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” According to USA Today, he fulfilled on his pledge. In 2010, the average family paid $300 more a year for energy — more than any time in the previous 14 years.
Why are prices rising? Obama is waging a war-by-fiat on coal-powered plants and other domestic energy sources.
Robert Bluey of the Heritage Foundation has estimated the government is losing $3.7 million in tax revenue every day because Obama will not allow companies to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, $1.35 billion this year alone.
If there is any consolation, it is only the gallows observation that fewer and fewer Americans have homes.
Again, USA Today reports that 1.6 million American children are on the streets, up one-third from 2007 according to a study conducted by the National Center on Family Homelessness. A recent HUD study found an increase in overall homelessness, as well. The South is particularly hard-hit. A woman who heads a shelter in Alabama says, “Poverty in Alabama is severe at best. We were already in dire straights, and then you get the economy. It’s kept us on the bottom.”
The economy is not keeping America on the bottom. Obama is.
This news should make Obama’s environmentalist advisers thrill with delight. They believe Americans have too much purchasing-power, so making them poor reduces their carbon footprint. Hounding Americans out of their homes and herding them into large homeless shelters reduces carbon output, as well.
A socialist economy puts America out of work, and the environmentalist extremists move to change its underlying structure to make “the new normal” permanent.
Three years into the Obama administration, and 29 months after the putative end of the Great Recesion, only seven percent of Americans have returned to the income they enjoyed before the recession. A new study finds fully 69 percent of Americans have experienced devastating economic conditions during Barack Obama’s time in office. Many have forsaken medical treatment, reduced their food budgets, borrowed money, or sold possessions to stay afloat. And a sizable percentage has no hope that its lot will ever change.

As much as I don't like the guy. The statements he made in this video is 100% correct.
Businesses need to make money to stay in business, and its often the people at the bottom that get bent over and done without lube or remorse.
