President Obama - You had a Democratic Congress the first two years of your Administration. Why couldn't you get our economy going with a Democratic Congress & White House? When are you going to stop blaming President Bush for all your problems....Harry Truman said "the buck stops here".....you knew, as all incoming Presidents do....exactly what you were "inheriting" and still you whine.

Many Fortune 500 companies have started a practice of laying-off American white/blue collar workers & replacing them with what I call "insourced" aliens (aliens on work visa's). Those workers are hired at a good hourly rate & are sent to the Fortune companies by agencies that are owned/operated by aliens. This practice allows Fortune 500 companies to avoid paying state/local taxes, as well as paying into FICA and Medicare for each insourced worker. In fact, the agencies that provide alien workers are responsible for collecting/paying such taxes/contributions. Consequently, Fortune 500 companies' stocks/dividends increase and often the agencies don't file/pay any of the taxes they have collected & have not made any required contributions to the entitlements programs. Moreover, a lot of the alien workers don't report their income and obtains Social Security, medicare and/or Medicaid benefits. The result - millions of American citizens are out of work; middle class workers are heavily taxed and entitlement funds are dwindling. Nothing is being done proactively to improve the situation. Investigating agencies & workers would be costly. So I think it better that we go to the source and tax those that benefit most from insourcing, i.e., the Fortune 500 who are practicing it. Do you think it fair legislation be passed to end this insourcing and in the interim, surcharge Fortune 500 companies $.40 cents on every dollar they pay for each worker to each agency?

President Obama, It has been said by world leaders that do not have term limits, that they have noticed that a sitting President does not become fully aware of the worlds issues until they have been in office for almost their entire first term. With that said do you feel that you have come into your own as far as world matters and do you think electing a rookie at this point would be a big problem or are we at a point in world affairs that will tolerate the time required for a first term president to learn the unseen aspects of the job?

"Mr. President, you claim that you got us out of Iraq. However, considering George W. Bush (you know, the man you blame for everything) signed off on the exit date prior to leaving office, doesn't that prove that you are a liar to the American People?"
