      do with direct job creation?  I'm genuinely not understanding what you think he or, to tell the truth, even Congress can do about creating private sector jobs.  (If that's what you referring to.)

      This lays at the feet of the private sector which has decided, once and for all, that the American worker isn't part of the problem: we ARE the problem.  The corporate, private sector pretty much thinks American workers are just getting in their way and the idea of having to pay us anything at all is very onerous on them.

        Instead of mewling and whining about their powerlessness, they could at least be raising holy hell.  Raising consciousness of/for solutions that aren't corporatist-Republican.

        Instead, they're debating whether to support plans to rip up the social safety net even further.
