Obama creates a generation who can’t do better than our parents -- By Emily Miller, The Washington Times

President’s policies are killing the American dream 

Five years of President Obama's policies have resulted in the first generation in our nation's history that does not know whether it can do better than its parents. Mr. Obama may have killed the American dream.

Mr. Obama wants Americans to ignore the reality of the endless economic malaise. "The United States is better positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth," he said in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

"Corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better," he said. "But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled."

The president frequently uses class-warfare tactics to try to distract voters. The facts are that gross domestic product barely ekes up each quarter by low, single digits, while the labor-force participation rate is down to the lowest level in 35 years.

This means that the hope-and-change agenda enacted by Mr. Obama since 2009 has resulted in a stunted economy and fewer people than ever in the workforce.
