Obama's $18 Billion Job Training Boondoggle

Socialist President Obama is borrowing money from the Chinese and others to spend $18 Billion annually on various job training programs.  In fact, there are 47 overlapping programs, managed by 9 federal government agencies.  Upon investigation, these programs are fraught with mismanagement, waste, fraud, abuse and corruption.  Only 5 of the programs, out of 47, actually track effectiveness in terms of whether participants actually get jobs as a result of the training.   This is just another big government, ineffective boondoggle that only benefits the union government employees that work in these programs.  The reality is that the only benefit that comes from these training programs is the government employment that they create. 

And, why do we need these programs anyway.  All states have public community colleges and all types of vocational schools already.  If low income Americans need help with tuition, there are grants and government loans available to help them.  Why do we need federal employees, or even additional state employees, to administer training programs.   If someone is out of job collecting unemployment benefits, perhaps someone at the unemployment office should just suggest that the recipient go to a community college or vocational school to learn a job skill that is marketable.   Even if that is too much to ask of a union government worker, then just line the unemployment office with posters that encourage additional education as a means of finding a job.   Assuming the unemployed person can read, even at 5th grade level, they should get the message.   

There is so much redundancy of benefits and services in local, state and federal government functions that it is bankrupting both the states and the federal government.   WE ARE BROKE.   What is it going to take for our elected representatives, at all levels of government, to figure this out.  Of course, Socialist President Obama and his friends in office will never figure it out because they see it as their mission to grow government to provide a never ending stream of high paying government union jobs.   These union members pay dues that support Socialist campaigns so there is absolutely no incentive for Socialists to control the size of government by getting rid of all the waste and redundancy.   If anything, Socialists are motivated to do just the opposite by adding all sorts of over lapping programs.   It has to stop.  

In order to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States, civil strife on our streets and the loss of our national sovereignty, we must sweep these Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama out of office in 2012 and 2014.   These characters are a clear and present danger to our nation.   We have to put on our hip boots and drain the swamp in Washington DC and state capitals to send these Socialists packing.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  In the mean time, write or email your Congressman and Senators and tell them to get rid of the annual $18 Billion for in effective, redundant training programs.   This boondoggle is a waste of our hard earned money and only adding to our soon to be $16 Trillion National Debt.
