WASHINGTON — Facing the “disastrous” rollout of his so-called signature achievement ObamaCare, President Barack Obama conducted another political pivot to another issue.
Reuters reported that Obama will announce a plan to lure foreign investors to the United States in order to jump start the flagging U.S. economy.
The federal government will now reach into a domain of luring businesses that was primarily the responsibility of states and local governments. Unemployment is struggling at 7% across the nation and Obama has not stimulated the economy as he had promised in the past (i.e. the most expensive stimulus project in American history).
As ObamaCare is failing the American people, with at least 2 million Americans losing their health insurance, hitting the headlines and news cycle, Obama needs yet another pivot and distraction. The media has covered him on Benghazi, the IRS-targeting-the-Tea-Party scandal, the NSA scandal, his administration’s eavesdropping on foreign leaders (including allies like Germany’s Angela Merkel and Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff) and especially the truth about ObamaCare.
