If President Obama wants to put people to work, he should consider investing in our infrastructure instead of funding wars where even if we do become the winner, we still lose. Now he wants to give away $5,000 to employers for each new employee hired. This is a bonanza for anyone already planning to hire more employees. The great government giveaway under the corrupt Bush administration and now the overly generous Obama administration is still going strong, but nothing will avert the ultimate reality that recessions are inevitable and there is little government can do to prevent this natural cycle from taking place. Eventually, their efforts will just make things worse. — Stephen Wheeler, Santa Barbara
