Young Communist League Working To Pass Obama's Jobs Bill & His Reelection
President Obama, and his supporters, have been pushing his jobs bill ever since he introduced it several weeks ago. One group in particular has been gathering signatures nationwide in support of that bill, the Young Communist League (YCL).
According to a speech given by YCL leader Lisa Bergman to the World Federation of Young Democratic Youth in Portugal, the YCL has been busy little Commie bees pushing Obama's Job's Bill:
"Young people are also leading the fight for job creation. The Young Communist League has been collecting signatures nationwide in support of President Obama's "American Jobs Act", and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's "Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act." If passed, these bills would create over 4.2 million new jobs in the U.S.
Last week, in the city where I live, the Young Communist League and other youth led a march of 200 people in support of jobs for youth and jobs for all."
As well as supporting Obama's agenda, the YCL is working to help him get reelected:
"Finally, I will speak briefly about the 2012 elections in the U.S. The election of Barack Obama in 2008 was a tremendous victory for the people of the United States and indeed for people all over the world. The election of our first African American president has been a huge blow to the entrenched racism in our country. Young people are a reason that Obama won the presidency, as he earned 66 percent of the youth vote. Obama continues to push policies that benefit working-class people in the United States. And Republicans continually block these policies to make Obama look ineffective.
......That said the fight for jobs and for real solutions must include reelecting Obama in 2012. If youth, whether in the Occupy movement or elsewhere, do not want to work with any politician, then being absent from the political process is only allowing the ultra-right wing to build power."
So if you really need a good viable reason to not support either Obama or his jobs bill might I suggest one.
It's because the Communists do...
