Thank You Letter to President Obama
The Honorable Barack H. Obama
President of the United States of America
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington D.C. , 20500
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for working so hard to bringing 350 new jobs to Chicago with your campaign (not to mention the 800 nationwide). I know that this effort was extremely taxing considering how busy you have been this year with fundraisers (164 of them as of June 12th) and golf outings (100 times as of June 17th). Oh, please don’t let me forget all the promises you have made to Russia:
In case Mr. Jack Lew or Secretary Timothy Geithner haven’t briefed you in a while, let me share with you the state of our economy. The national debt sits at a little more than $15,976,986,900,565.00 as of this afternoon which makes each American’s obligation just over $58,980.00 [US Debt Clock]. Under your leadership, unemployment has remained over 8% for 42 straight months and in July alone, 44 states reported increased unemployment rates. Last but not least, I want to thank you for making our life so much easier in the future by passing Obamacare. I think we are all excited that it is going to increase the national debt by over $500 billion and increase government spending by more than $1 trillion.
Yet, I find myself slightly off track. This letter was to thank you for spending more money on your campaign than you brought in (roughly $10 million more) and for hiring 350 people in Chicago to work on your re-election. What about the father of three in Northwestern Indiana who has to work 2 jobs to try to put food on the table and clothes on the backs of his children? I am sure that he wishes he could spend more than he brings in to make things easier on his family. I bet that he wishes he didn’t have to work 2 jobs so that he could possibly make a Little League game or a choir concert or even a Father-Daughter Dance.
Thanks for helping those who work for a living, Mr. President. Thank you for being a resounding voice for common sense solutions and job creation across the country. Mostly though, in the famous words of Michael Douglass from The American President, “…thank you for being so focused on keeping your job that you forgot to do your job.”
