Obama’s Cabinet Lacks Real World Experience

Posted on October 20, 2010


When Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner admitted he has “never had a real job” he was not only talking for his own adult life, but also for President Obama’s Cabinet.

The Cabinet is woefully short of anyone who has owned, or even managed, a business—in other words, real world experience in America’s great free-enterprise system that might influence internal debates on economic and health policies.

This may explain why the White House embarked on a government-only agenda. It wants more spending to supposedly create jobs, not lower taxes to stimulate the private sector. It wants the government to run the healthcare system, changes that are already boosting insurance rates for the middle class. It wants more government intervention in banking and financial markets. Consumers are sure to feel the brunt of extra fees to cover the cost.
