Because there has never been more money available for jobs and investment.


And companies are stuck doing things like buying back their own stock in the open market and increasing cash dividends because the administration treats the private hiring of workers in this country like a crime against humanity.

It’s easier to qualify for food stamps than it is to find a job. It’s so bad that immigrants are crossing back to Mexico to find opportunity.

Last year the liberal AtlanticMonthly said that “the U.S. becoming a less attractive destination” for Mexicans. “[Mexican] GDP growth rivals Brazil's, and economically, some economists think the country is doing even better than the United States.”

And all this time we thought the administration didn’t have an effective plan to combat illegal immigration.

All this at a time when Obama is telling us: “The private sector is doing fine.”

Only a group of myopic, academic, ideologues, like the ones who have seized control of the Democrat wing of the Democrat party, would have fumbled the opportunity to create record jobs in the U.S. that has been available the last six years.

They can feel doubly rewarded by the fact that instead of attending to the peoples’ business and fueling job creation, they chose instead to pass the still-born “Obamacare Monument to That President We Would Rather Not Talk About in 2014.”

The irony, as Democrats rush to divorce themselves from the consequences of the law, is that they have done everything to let people know that they are 100 percent for Obamacare, and Republicans are 100 percent against it.

Like in the Tennessee union vote, you don’t need a scorecard to know where everyone stands.

That makes the election focus in 2014 really easy.

G.O.P. equals J.O.B.

Thanks, Maddow, for the assist.
