Debt Hurts Poor Most

By Tony Perkins – Family Research Council

President Obama is doing what he promised in his campaign for president — he is driving up energy costs. In the wake of his promise to decrease America’s dependence on fossil fuels, the poor are being hit the hardest as a higher proportion of their limited income is going for gasoline and electricity. The answer in the minds of liberal religious leaders who met with the President is not less government intervention and regulation, but more deficit federal spending. This is extremely shortsighted as pointed out in a Wall Street Journal piece today: the more government intervention and regulation the fewer jobs that are created. Levels of unemployment and underemployment not seen since the Great Depression are the direct result of Obama’s out-of-control spending and regulations. Big government policies that increase our nation’s debt hurt the poor the most.

Earlier this week Egan-Jones Ratings Company downgraded the U.S.’s credit rating. While Egan-Jones is a small firm, it could be an ominous warning. They were less concerned about a short-term delinquency triggered by a delay in raising the debt ceiling than a failure to bring federal spending under control. When the U.S. Government finds its credit rating lowered, this, too, hurts the poor. It means that more federal funds will go to paying Chinese creditors at higher interest rates. Those are funds not available to businesses to create entry-level jobs in America. Instead, we will hand over more billions to a Communist regime that persecutes Christians as I pointed out in a piece that was published today in both The American Spectator and Human Events. What can you do?

Contact your two U.S. Senators. Ask them to vote for the House-passed Cut, Cap, and Balance Act.

‘Gang of Six’ – Reduce our publicly-held debt to roughly 70% of our economy by 2021. Are you kidding, we need immediate solutions not pass the buck for 10 years, not to mention the 70% is no laudable goal. We’re sick of this kind of government planning, 2021 when Obama will long since be gone and so will many or most of these Senators, it ridiculous to think they have any control over will will actually happen 10 years from now, and that these plans won’t change another dozen times in between. It’s simply bad policy and irresponsible!

The Age of Obama Fail by David Harsanyi – Recessions come and go. Typically we emerge with strong sustained growth. Not this time. Today we learned that employers added the fewest jobs in 8 months. Unemployment jumped back to 9.1 percent – and really, the level is 15.8 percent.

The housing market still stinks, as does other foundations of the economy. The answer from the Democrats has been bailout after bailout, antiquated economic schemes, huge expansion of regulation, calls for higher taxes, attacks on the profit motive, roadblocks to energy production, increasing moral hazard in markets, more crony capitalism, food stamps, dependency, massive new entitlement program, sharing of the prosperity but less new prosperity, the same wars (and more!), but no budget, no spending cuts and little economic hope. 

Ian Murray at The Corner explains:

Today’s much weaker than expected employment numbers show that the president’s agenda of more regulation and increased spending has undoubtedly failed. However much money he throws at the problem, entrepreneurs are not going to start adding jobs to the economy while the burden of regulation is so high. Regulations cost the economy $1.75 trillion each year. It is regulation that is dragging us back to recession.
