During the 2012 presidential campaign, Barack Obama and his court jester Joe Biden sounded like broken records as they kept repeating charges of Mitt Romney exporting American jobs overseas. Biden chided the charges so often that it became annoying enough to make anyone want to slap that stupid smile off his face.
Democrats across the land picked up on Obama and Biden’s claims of shipping jobs overseas and said that they would never do that while Americans were in such need to find jobs here at home.
They pretended like no one would notice that they were guilty of doing the same thing. If you recall, the nearly $1 trillion Stimulus package was meant to create jobs here in the US and spur the economy. Americans weren’t supposed to know that $20 million of US taxpayer money used for the Stimulus went to John Hynansky, a large campaign donor to Joe Biden. The money was to be used to help him create jobs by opening a luxury car dealership. However, the dealership was in the Ukraine and so were the jobs.
Obama was also guilty of the job hypocrisy by having the Defense Department award a large contract worth $345 million to Brazilian company Embraer for the construction of military aircraft. Companies in the US had bid on the contract which would have created over 1,400 jobs here in America, but Obama felt it was more important to put Brazilians to work instead of Americans.
California is run by liberal tyrant Democrats that idolized Barack Obama and his anti-American economics. Don’t forget that some of the most liberal and whacked out members of Congress hail from California – Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Barbara Boxer – to name a few. Internally, California is also run by liberal hypocrites, starting with Governor Jerry Brown.
Currently California has an unemployment rate that is about 1% higher than what the White House erroneously reports for the enter nation. Thousands of California residents are looking for jobs. Many of them would be more than happy to land a job with the state processing things like unemployment checks.
I wonder how many of California’s unemployed would be upset to learn that California’s Employment Development Department is using India nationals to process their unemployment claims. The state has hired Deloitte, an IT company, which in turn has hired citizens from India here in the US on H-1B visas to do the work that California residents are perfectly capable of doing.
This seems to be a growing trend in the US, especially in California where Southern California Edison is replacing numerous employees with workers from India with H-1B visas. If that’s not insulting enough, the company is forcing American workers to train their foreign replacements before being laid off.
Current immigration policies allow for 65,000 H-1B visas to be issued each year. Supposedly these special visas are to be used for foreign nationals who possess skills that Americans don’t have or that there are not enough skilled Americans to fill the needed jobs. But as we are seeing, these visas are not being used in the manner prescribed by law, but are being used to push thousands of Americans out of work.
If that’s not bad enough, realize that Barack Obama has proposed to increase the number of H-1b visas from 65,000 per year to 195,000 a year. If successful, Obama will be putting another 130,000 Americans a year out of work by allowing companies to replace them with foreigners.
Once again we see that Obama’s policies are only meant to destroy America, not save it. His ‘change’ is not the change Americans want nor can afford to allow to happen. Sadly, we don’t have any conservative politicians willing to stop him.
