Back in January President Obama said this about his job council;
“One of the things that’s been striking about this Jobs Council is how focused and how hard-working everybody has been around this table. This has not been a show council. This has been a work council.And because of the extraordinary commitments that each and every one of you have made, we have generated I think as good a set of proposals as we have seen coming out of the private sector to help to guide and steer our economic agenda and our approach to jobs and growth over the next couple of years.”
This was from the Opening and Closing Remarks by the President to the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness The problem is, this is the same council that hasn’t met in over 6 months while economy has remained stagnant at best.
The White House Press secretary was asked about the Job’s Council not meeting recently, and he responded, “the President’s obviously got a lot on his plate.” I’m guessing fund-raisers, golf games, and birthday parties are more important than working on jobs in America.
