Faced with the reality that his policies have failed to spur significant job growth, President Obama is blaming technology for high unemployment.
During a recent NBC News interview Obama said, “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM. You don’t go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.”
ATMs provide convenience — they are hardly a drag on the economy. Yet, like targeting jet owners will allegedly greatly reduce our national debt, shunning ATMs is apparently a sure-fire solution to our unemployment woes.
While Obama demonizes airplanes and ATMs, it’s really his toxic policies such as his failed stimulus and his war on fossil fuels that are stifling economic growth. Those policies are also having an impact on our nation’s morality.
