Uncertainty and the Message Lorain County Might Hear

By January 22, 2010Economy, Energy

President Obama travels to Lorain County, Ohio, today for a “White House to Main Street” event promoting jobs creation in a hard-hit corner of industrial America.

Unless the federal government intends to replace the private sector entirely as a source of capital for manufacturers, the President will talk about stimulating private investment by corporations. Businesses will be — or should be — welcomed as the source of wealth and employment.

Yet the day before the President’s trip, he reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC by saying this:

With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans.

Big business, those powerful forces of evil, wants to oppress everyday Americans.

Now invest!
