Dear Mr. President…
Dear President Obama,
I have been talking with a few of my American friends and since we all seemed to want the same thing they asked me to write this letter to you (feel free to share it with any other members of congress that you talk with today).
I know that healthcare reform is very important to you, but we Americans just want jobs. And I know that you would really like to get some kind of cap and trade bill passed, but we Americans just want jobs. Sure, changing the laws to make it easier to make it easier for unions to form and grow is nice, but we Americans just want jobs. One would think that with all the snow and cold temperatures in DC this year that you could maybe put off forming an new governmental agency to study global warming, we Americans just want jobs. No, not temporary census jobs and no, not any kind of government job at all (we’re afraid to sign on with a company that might go bankrupt), we would really appreciate it if you would help the private sector create jobs for us, the American people.
Mr. President, we just want jobs.
Please give our love to Michelle and the kids,
The American People
P.S. If the hard work of creating good private sector jobs for us leaves you some free time, it sure would be nice if you spent some of that time working on keeping us safe from terrorists (as opposed to going golfing, having people over for a Super Bowl party, or going to see a basketball game). Thanks!
