The Great Unemployment Mystery

The Great Unemployment Mystery
by Peter Stern
Unemployment in the U.S. is at its highest rate in many decades.
Apparently it is a mystery that only a Sherlock Holmes or Charlie Chan can solve because President Barack Obama has not fought significantly to bring jobs to hardly-working Americans despite his promises to the American people.
The U.S. Congress has turned its back on jobless citizens, merely offering short-term solice via extending unemployment benefits.  Who can live on such a paltry sum for any extended period?
The banks have washed their hands of millions of homeless indigents who foreclosed or walked away from their homes.  Some Americans, left with money, are finding good deals on purchasing these discarded homes.  Tent cities continue to grow across our nation.
How hard is it to provide jobs to those who need and want them?
It would be simple enough to issue tax reduction incentives to businesses who wish to expand their enterprises by providing jobs to unemployed Americans.
Equally, it is easy for the government to develop federal jobs to build, repair and maintain our depreciating infrastructures, e.g., bridges, tunnels, highways, dams, etc.
However, simple or not, jobs are NOT being provided.
Consequently, we must consider that the reason jobs are not forthcoming is that government and corporate sectors do not want to provide jobs since it is a great mystery to determine what other tangible reason there is for the highest unemployment among Americans since The Great Depression.

Wouldn't it be nice if a new President could just step in and fix this mess? You equate Obama with the Congress and in my opinion, that's not fair. I do agree that our President's approach in dealing with the existing systems is too moderate for my taste, but then I'm just another Commie, Socialist Pig who wants to replace the needs of the greedy few with what works for the common good of the citizens of our country. There will be no easy solution in this battle we are fighting to change the Corporate takeover of our government and our country. No one President can accomplish this. We are the ones who must change it...just like Obama has said all along.
