Part time, seasonal and minimum wage and people dropping out of the job market. I read his jobs bill he had last year there was nothing in there that would give any incentive to hire any new employees. If anything he makes it less likely that arge lower skill seeking employers would look for full time employees. In fact there are a few that are cutting back on hrs with employees to avoid the Obama care rules for full time employees. He talks about all these electric cars and gives billions to one company thinking it would spur some type of electric battery technology boom, Guess what that company took the money and ran other companies looked at the capital that was given to one company and said how could we compete in that market when we didn't get any free money'. Obamanomics don't work.'Create a monopoly and hope other companies would try to compete? Oh yea that will work!
I agree bush wasn't an economic intellect but I at least had respect for him and a lot of his programs did work to stimulate the economy. Our economy was heading in the wrong direction before him as well. Our federal govt is way too large and our state and local govts are working towards the same pattern.
Obama is for larger government. Romney is for smaller federal government.
If you adjust for population growth, there are less gov't jobs now than there were 40 years ago. The country's population grows, there are more jobs in all sectors including the government.
Also, one inconsistency I've never understood with this argument. Why is military spending to include defense contractors completely okay but any other government job is completely evil?
