Last week former Clinton Labor Secretary and Obama economic advisor, Robert Reich, testified in front of a congressional panel regarding the proposed Obama economic stimulus plan.
Reich, a left-wing ideologue, said the following when discussing Obama’s massive infrastructure plan.
“I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers”
This is a great example as to why the Left loves public works infrastructure spending. It’s their big chance to participate in social engineering and vote buying. The Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, and Railways are supposed to be built by people with no skills, no construction experience, and who are not “professionals.” What a freaking joke!
Reich went on to say that the jobs should go to the chronically unemployed, minorities and women. Is the federal government now supposed to pay for training classes to teach construction techniques and practices to housewives and the homeless?
To all of you white blue collar, democrat males out there; is this what you signed up for when you voted for Obama? It doesn’t really matter, because this is the kind of crap that you are going to get from this bunch, whether you like it or not! I would advise you guys to stop blindly following your union leaders and start thinking for yourselves.
My belief has always been that illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America will wind up getting a large portion of these “stimulus” jobs. In fact, I would bet that the infrastructure program and Comprehensive Immigration Reform (also know as amnesty) will be linked together by the liberals. They will tell us that we desperately need these immigrants to help rebuild our country.
I guess the new catch-phrase will now be: “the jobs laid off Yuppies won’t do and white male construction workers won’t be allowed to do.”
