20,000 Jobs Lost in January

According to recent unemployment reports, an additional 20,000 jobs were lost in January. Despite this loss, the unemployment rate declined from 10 percent to 9.7 percent. It is important to note that the unemployment rate does not account for any discouraged potential workers who are not actively seeking unemployment.

Proposed 45-Percent Death Tax Will Increase Unemployment

Some Americans have declared 2010 the “best year to die.” Due to the temporary expiration of the estate tax or death tax, all individuals that pass away this year are guaranteed that their loved ones will receive their inheritance in full. Those that pass away are not forced to leave their mourning family with the burden of paying exorbitant taxes on their belongings.

Unfortunately, Expanding Pell Grants Likely to Increase College Tuition and Fraud

In Obama’s proposed 2011 fiscal budget released yesterday, he calls for a massive expansion to the Pell Grant program. The Pell Grant, given to undergraduate and some graduate students that can demonstrate financial need, will be expanded to approximately $35 billion.  It’s no secret that tuition costs are soaring particularly at public colleges and universities.

Obama's 2011 Fiscal Budget: More of the Same

Today, the White House released Obama’s remarks regarding his budget for the fiscal year 2011:  We simply cannot continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences; as if waste doesn't matter; as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money; as if we can ignore this challenge for another generation. We can't. No, it’s not April Fools day.

White House: Your Concerns About Jobs Are "Petty"

During Obama’s State of the Union address on Wednesday, he claimed that the “stimulus” bill has been a continuous success. He attempted to reassure the American people by explaining that it had “saved” millions of jobs so far.  Because of the steps we took, there are about two million Americans working right now who would otherwise be unemployed. 200,000 work in construction and clean energy. 300,000 are teachers and other education workers.

27.1% Youth Unemployment Rate: Minimum Wage Hurting Their Prospects

 A great deal of young people were attracted to Obama’s campaign due to its “hipness” and its ability to organize through social networking sites. However, a year after Obama took office, more young people are waking up and realizing that Obama’s minimum wage policies do not serve their best interest.

Americans Oppose Second "Stimulus"

In December, the House passed the second "stimulus" plan. The proposed plan is now before the Senate and will redistribute $174 billion taxpayer money throughout the economy to "create" jobs. The second stimulus, heavily backed by democratic lawmakers, remains unpopular among American citizens that have yet to see any positive effects from the first stimulus.
