Obama could care less about putting people back to work, unless you already have a job in public jobs like Teachers, Fire, and Police, fire and police are very important, but they are the first to be Laid Off, and with this, the Government think you will pass bonds to get more money they can spend unwisely.
WHEN are people going to remember that public Employees going to under stand that public Employees are nothing but PERPETUAL MOTION and can not sustain its motion with out added fuel, that added fuel is tax money, and that means you need outside money to build, and with out that you will eventually run out of money.
Obama’s Job Bill is nothing but Perpetual Motion, and problems are already starting to happen, lack of funds to keep this Country Going, so why do they think that Private Work Force is not Important, it is the Private Jobs that funds all Government Agencies, and with out Private jobs you have nothing to EXPORT to provide taxes to Operate on.
Just a few Examples of how teachers care about Educating our kids, Class Size Brings Strike by Teachers, how do you like the one NO TEACHER LEFT BEHIND, not NO kids left behind, this shows you how much Obama and the Teachers really care about Education.

Reid’s focus on government jobs is ‘disconnected from reality’
Republicans jumped on comments made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that the unemployment crisis is intensifying because of a loss of government jobs, rather than job losses in the private sector, calling him “disconnected from reality.”
“The massive layoffs we’ve had in America today are of course rooted in the last administration,” Reid said on the Senate floor on Wednesday. “It’s very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers, and that’s what this legislation is all about.”
Reid was speaking in support of the Teachers and First Responders Back to Work Act, a part of President Obama’s jobs package that Democrats say could save thousands of teacher and first-responder jobs.
Republicans said the comments are an example of Democrats pushing a big-government agenda while being “out of touch” on the weak economy.
“Is the private sector really ‘doing just fine,’ as Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said?” asked Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) in a Facebook post.
“Here are the facts: The private sector has lost 6.3 million net jobs – a 5.4% drop – since the recession began in 12/2007. Government employment is down 392,000 jobs – a relatively low 1.8% drop. Government workers actually have the lowest unemployment rate of any industry. Washington needs to stop focusing on growing government, and start fostering an environment where the private sector can grow and create good jobs,” he wrote.
The Senate Republican Communications Center also blogged about Reid’s comments, calling him “disconnected from reality.” The SRCC pointed to a Bloomberg report that said Washington, D.C., was the “wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area,” in part because of hefty federal employee salaries.
While weakness in the private sector have kept the overall unemployment rate firmly above 9 percent, a reduction in government spending has forced dozens of federal agencies to offer targeted buyouts or early retirements to employees. The government layoffs have affected more than 7,500 Postal Service employees, 4,000 Air Force members, 500 Department of Agriculture employees, 400 who work for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and 350 Library of Congress workers, among others.
