A 9.1 percent unemployment rate is a serious handicap for an incumbent. But its not too late for President Obama to change course and make America a friendlier environment for job creation by changing regulations.
His cabinet secretaries control regulations that are now discouraging growth. A few examples. President Obama could ask EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to hold off on new environmental regulations until unemployment goes down. He could ask the NLRB acting general counsel to drop the charges against Boeing for opening a new plant in South Carolina. He could ask Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to speed up on drilling permits. He could ask Labor Department Secretary Hilda Solis to go slow on new dust regulations that will result in closure of coal mines, and new regulations on federal contractors for hiring veterans that will cause endless paperwork. Theres Dodd-Frank regulations too. The list goes on, its just up to the presidentï¿½.
