Obama wants to give you $4,000 toward job training

Isn't this like buying your votes? I mean first free cell phones, free medical to all the poor, Free food stamps for what is it 40% of the nation now? Free assistance for all of those who lost there houses to foreclosure via the banking lawsuit for 25 billion. Now you and I know it's not free at all but to those in need ... wow Christmas time all year long. I think I see the problem here. Most of the nation is poor and do not realize that Obama is killing this country. This will put an end to the middle class and kill any chances for the young in this country from being anything but a serf.

Here's the latest way President Obama wants to help the unemployed.

The president is looking to give displaced workers $4,000 a year to pursue training in technical fields to land new jobs.

The grants are part of the latest jobs proposal unveiled by Obama Monday. Many of them have gone nowhere as Congress and the White House continue to fight over the best way to promote job creation.

Okay....

This troubles me, how is he going to get the money? from tax payers? Or printing more from worthless paper and increasing our deficits?

Honestly, $4000 a year for job training is not worth it when job training price will go up by $4000 to catch up! In the end, it's all a lie!

People need to step back and ask where does he gets the money from? And the "real value" of those money...

I just pray that people can look BEYOND the immediate and see the ACTUAL impacts these programs have.

Not to mention, I feel like he's treating us like some kind of "slaves", the mentality seems to be "occasionally you throw them some money, make some promises here and there, these idiots will follow"... I'm going to bang my head against the wall now to calm myself... Sorry for sounding so mean and unsupported of the unemployed, it's just that $4000 a year isn't gonna cut it when the dollar falls flat on it back.

(My advice, take the money, think that's it's the money you're supposed to get, be angry that you only get this much considering the amount given to the rich on "wealthfare" and the tax dollars you've paid for all those years added together, then vote Ron Paul anyway!)

amen!

4K ?

It would much better if companies were given 4k towards a tax credit if they hired a person imo.

donvino

It

would be better if Obama would stop giving everyone free stuff to try to buy their votes.

morons.

before the proposal, job training cost $1200.

after proposal, job training will cost $5200.

What does that tell me? I need to start a job training company, so I can charge every person who walks through the door, an extra $4000.

And I can setup the paperwork, computer forms, etc, so people just walk in, and I get them approved. And I can get my cash flow from the government.

Then my business becomes about getting people in and out as fast as possible.

And not about training.

So True

Oppose the Real Problem


The real problem here is welfare and hand-outs for the filthy rich, Billions-of-dollars of Bailouts to corrupt Corporations (Trillions actually), Tax-breaks that encourage the moving of our Industry offshore (and destroy American manufacturing), a absurd tax code in which millionairs like Warren Buffet pay less in taxes than his secretary does, and Exxon-Mobile reaps in billions-of-dollar in profits and pays zero taxes.

Simply put, the system is quite intentionally designed to accelerate wealth into the hands of the privileged, the rich, Wall Street,.....the top 1% -- and rob from the poor.

As a result, the middle-class has been destroyed. Poverty is at record highs already equivalent to the great depression era.

The tiny, few and minor benefits that the poor do get don't even come close to addressing all the many inequities and unfairness of the whole damn corrupt system. This is not the problem, and this is not the place to plant your flag and express "outrage".

What about the Trillions and Trillions of dollars that are taken from poor and put into the hands of Wall Street insiders, the Banksters, the War Profiteers, Foreign Interests, Mulitnational Corporations, etc.

That is the real problem here.
Leave the poor and the laid-off, impoverished workers alone.

They ain't the criminals.
It's the Fat Cats that have stolen away our Country.

I think you missed my Point

I know The federal reserve is a bank. I know they control the booms an busts. I know this makes the consumer pay a higher interest rate because they get bad credit form the boom and bust cycles. I know the banks they offer them more loans after the consumer have paid on there homes for 15 years and now must start over paying that higher interest rate. I do know the game. My whole point here is with Obama giving half the country all this free help how the hell do we convince the poor which is 60 % or more of the country that he is not Santa Clause?
