  •  The next big thing now are health care and energy (0+ / 0-)

    There are millions of good paying jobs in health care and alternative energy open because they can't find people who know how to do the work.

    Government is missing a great opportunity to provide the money for education and training for these new jobs.

    The unemployed have been without jobs longer than in the very bad recession of 82-83.

    During the 82-83 recession, money was made available to the unemployed, to train for new jobs because the old jobs were never coming back.

    Obama and the Democrats have failed to address this problem of old jobs and new jobs and a workforce in transition.

    I'm just not sure they really care. They sure don't seem to. Obama is not stupid, but he's not doing the right things when it comes to helping the unemployed in the new economy.
