    Their tools are limited on issues like this, but they've been using those tools extremely well since coming into that branch, those directly in and those around it.

    Unlike the congress who's jobs have the tools that need to be implemented, listen or watch either a house or senate veterans affairs committee hearing and see who gets the blame, in regards to veterans, and who's doing the blaming as they ask questions or make points at those who are invited to testify!

    Do same for any congressional hearing, especially related to jobs and the economy and government needed intervention and especially over the past decade as the collapse was coming and since!!

    Working construction I saw it some five years before it hit, in commercial and industrial especially but also as to residential both new and remodeling.

      Are also understood by them that the country is not doing what it should as related to the vets and families of but especially the wealthy and corporations, as they're Supposed to be doing under their own new capitalism started some thirty years ago, during these wars.

      The area of a collapsed economy and very little private investment in thus long high numbers of unemployed or younger generation not being employed that if you nudge hard these corporations to hire on the returning vets that boost the economies in the communities where they live thus making it necessary for the many many smaller businesses to also hire, vet or not vet, and being able financially to do so and the ball starts rolling towards local recovery and expands on that.

      •  As To That new 'c'apitalism (0+ / 0-)

        That was the con as it was sold and implemented, some saw that con right away but few paid attention to them, was that what this admin has been doing, on jobs and vets especially, was what they were supposed to be doing thus making no need for ever having public funding invested in economic growth nor having an Executive branch push, that good ole 'patriotism' meme's and symbols, in other words actions not words, bigger companies to use those huge profits by hiring an paying experienced in many ways ex service personal!!
