  • Two Crises (Jobs and Debt Ceiling): One Real, One Not So Much

    America has a respect crisis: a lack of respect for people’s humanity, their want and willingness to be able to take care of themselves and their families through employment.

    Crisis, crisis – that’s all we hear now: only one crisis is truly a crisis and the other is a political ploy, which is shameful.

    The real disturbing part is that political and business leaders are focusing on the debt ceiling, which already has a conclusion, because the debt ceiling will be raised no matter what, and it is being used as political measure by both democrats and republicans.

    Democrats are trying to get a “grand bargain,” because President Obama wants to be able to have a major initiative of revenue and spending cuts that he can tout on the campaign trail for his reelection bid. Republicans want major cuts, so the can appease the Tea Party for not raising taxes and for supplicating to the business community, by not closing loopholes, especially those for capital gains.

    But the debt ceiling is not the crisis – it’s a ruse.

    America does have a crisis: a jobs crisis – a joblessness crisis.

    Beyond the jobs crisis – America has a respect crisis – a lack of respect for people’s humanness and their want and willingness to be able to take care of themselves and their families through employment. America has a leadership crisis – a lack of well-thought solutions that are developed through compromise, through being more invested in America, than in being good democrats and republicans crisis.

    Both parties should be focusing on job creation, focusing on how to create incentives for employers to hire – focusing on creating more tax revenue, as a result of putting people back to work. There is one crisis, the one that no is focused on, so we’ll continue to talk about taxes against corporate jets and how to cut entitlements, as opposed to how to create a twenty-first century workforce.

    Good Luck.
