Spending remains out of control
On May 5 you published a nice, politically correct article by The Associated Press as to "Why the economy is taking so long to recover." How about an honest, unpopular version? Hiring is slow because companies do not trust the anti-business actions of Big Government. In addition "tree-huggers," the EPA and our leaders are stopping the pipeline, drilling offshore and drilling on government land.
Unemployment has not improved much because of these reasons and because of the government handouts that destroy initiative and self-reliance. Because of Obamacare, many people are underemployed and forced to work part-time jobs. Housing is getting somewhat better, but financials are hamstrung due to Dodd-Frank damage because of government austerity is a flat-out lie! Government spending is still out of control and killing our future. Taxes are growing and will continue to grow -- and damage all of us.
