Where are the jobs?  With Saturn being closed now, Michigan will have 1000 more unemployed once again, but VP Biden says, the economy is on an upswing.  Really?  The disconnect is getting wider, where are their heads?  I am quoting an article below that I just read and I couldn't have said it bette myself.

"Just maybe we have our priorities wrong.Let’s not have tunnel vision and spend over a trillion dollars on health care reform when it will not cure the very dire current and growing unemployment problem.

The stimulus bill cost nearly a trillion dollars and was passed quickly in Congress to halt unemployment, yet instead, unemployment rose. Let’s be much more prudent in spending the next trillion.

The government is using the same sense of urgency to pass a health care bill, which won’t go into effect until 2013. What’s the rush?Hospital and ambulance services are already required to provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment, regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay.
In the middle of a recession and with rising unemployment, Democrats have been letting it leak that they want to raise U.S. tax rates on the middle and upper class.

As far as redistribution of resources, when you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always depend on the support of Paul.

Many in the country are blaming the current economy on eight years of President Bush. My recollection is that the Democrats have controlled Congress for the past three years, so it’s time to quit blaming Bush.

Before we even consider health care reform, let’s get the economy growing again and put all those millions of unemployed back to work."
