Time for Another Obama Pivot to Jobs

Speaking at the House Democratic Issues Conference in Leesburg, Va., the president repeated a theme from his 2012 re-election campaign, that “our economy succeeds and our economy grows when everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is getting a fair shake and everybody is playing by the same rules.”
“Because I believe that is a growth agenda — not just an equity agenda, not just a fairness agenda — that is a growth agenda,” he said.
“And that means that what you’ll hear from me next week, I’m going to be talking about making sure that we’re focused on job creation here in the United States of America,” Obama said.
Actually our businesses have a better chance to succeed when government is fair and predictable and its footprint is lighter. Under Obama, government has become unpredictable, burdensome, expensive, nosy and unfair.
Since most of these regulations are coming out of the executive branch, HHS and EPA mostly, he could fix it. But he won’t.
