Sen. Sessions: Time to ‘Defend Working Americans’

sessions-outsideRanking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a speech Thursday that the moribund U.S. economy and cronyism have effectively waged economic war on the working class.

“‘Quantitative easing’ has boosted wealth in the investor class but has not benefitted the working class,” said Sessions. The result, he asserted, is a “permanent entrenchment of a political class that profits from the growth of government.”

Sessions’s speech catalogued the harsh economic realities facing working Americans.

“We’re missing 9.9 million jobs when we compare this economy to the one in 2007,” said Sessions.

The Alabama Republican also highlighted America’s dramatic shift from full-time job availability to part-time work. “We have 1,988,00 fewer full-time jobs today than in December of 2007,” he stated. “However, we have 3,627,000 more part-time jobs…it’s not acceptable. These jobs often have no health care program or retirement plan.”

Sessions, a strong opponent of amnesty for illegal immigrants, said America’s grim economic condition should give amnesty proponents pause.

“We’ve got to ask ourselves if we should bring into our country, through our immigration policy, more people than we have jobs for. Won’t that pull down wages and make it harder for people to get work?”

Sessions says he has directed his staff to conduct a detailed analysis of the crushing economic conditions facing working Americans. The findings of his office’s study will become the basis for a series of forthcoming speeches on the economic war on working Americans.

    Harold: my posts are beginning to show my exasperation for the lack of rationality in the arguments. The one issue that I long ago mailed to the White House remain the same and it applies to both sides. To Obama I said his argument looks like a cat trying to catch his tail, meaning,
    We have our people unemployed, our finances in ruin, how on earth does he plan to stabilize the problem while at the same time he proposes a needed health care he also pushes for amnesty for millions of illegal who will require billions before absorption and production to a point to help pay for it all. They usually have from 6 to 14 children, give me a break. Second, the statistics in profit between the bottom middle and the to is sickening, especially, when those receiving the most are owned by foreign entities. Just a logical answer please. Do the math.

    Harold do you know about the W work visa in S.744? It is a work visa GIVEN to 200,000 illegals a year in the construction, hospitality and long term health care industries, jobs low income American citizens already do, especially the black community.
