Obama is making more and more people dependent on government to achieve his goals. When there are more takers than producers, likes of Stalin, Mousey Tung, Hitler, and now Obama who is trying to be their successor is inflicting us with hardship. Before Obama, the high for long-term unemployment rate was less than half of what it is today and Economists say that high long-term unemployment rates are dangerous. As time out of work increases, a worker's skills and knowledge of new technologies grow rusty making them less attractive to employers. This makes them less likely to re-enter the workforce making them even more dependent on government.
