Today’s Questions for the President

You’re embarking on a “job creation” bus tour next week.

Will your itinerary include a stop in Minnesota, where one company alone must cut 1,000 jobs because of Obamacare’s 2.3 percent tax on medical devices? Have you given any thought to taking a detour to Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, where an estimated 13,000 jobs were lost due to your administration’s moratorium on offshore oil drilling? Or how about Charleston, South Carolina, where the NLRB is challenging Boeing’s decision to build a plant that employs more than a thousand workers?

If you’re interested in finding out why there’s been no appreciable job creation during your administration, why not save the bus fare and just jog four blocks down Pennsylvania Avenue and pay a visit to the EPA, followed by a quick walk over to the NLRB at 14th and K, and then take a brief saunter to Independence Ave., where the Department of Health and Human Services is in the process of implementing Obamacare?
