Obama only concerned about his own job

Re: Sequestration: Compromise is in Obamas interest, July 7

There is plenty of blame to go around concerning the looming sequestration, the drastic defense budget cuts and massive job losses it will bring. Unless both parties come together to find a solution, Jan. 3 could see over a million jobs lost in the defense sector nationwide, with massive job losses in Virginia.

Incredibly, this week the Obama administration directed the defense industry not to protect these workers facing job loss. By law, a firm anticipating laying off workers must provide notice (a pink slip) 60 days prior to layoff. This massive purge is scheduled for Jan. 3, 2013, and these notices will go out Nov. 3, just days before the election.

Fearing hundreds of thousands of soon-to-be-unemployed defense workers going into the voting booth, the Obama machine had the Department of Labor direct the defense contracting companies not to provide layoff letters letters, which in many cases, are required for workers seeking help from employment assistance programs.

By blatantly throwing up to a million defense workers under the bus by telling the contracting companies to withhold layoff letters until after the election, Barack Obama proves he is in favor of job preservation. Unfortunately, the only job hes concerned about saving is his.

Now there is to be no more work qualifications needed to qualify for welfare. The welfare program had been a rousing success, enabling many to improve the quality of their lives.

What Obama has done is unconstitutional and should be immediately addressed and overturned. Have you read any complaint of this blatant disregard of our countrys laws from the government-friendly media?

This is merely the latest example (Fast and Furious coverup, fighting states that want to have an honest election, etc.) of this administrations disregard and contempt for America.

Citizens who dumbly accept and dont object to what is happening are doomed to accept the eventual disastrous consequences, some of which number high unemployment, unsustainable, reckless, wasteful and irresponsible federal spending, excessive rules and regulations for businesses and the monstrosity of Obamacare, which are already happening now. …
