The focal point in America for improving economic conditions is to move people from poverty and unemployment into work with upward mobility. The private sector must be the primary source for opportunity and government policies, laws, and regulations must aim to make it easier for commercial enterprises to succeed.
That does not mean that commercial enterprise can shirk their requirements for providing a competitive wage, healthcare benefits, and a safe environment.
Republicans would like to relax essential requirements as a cheap spark plug, but that doesn’t cut it. Needed is to motivate nearly 6 million underemployed geniuses in America to invent new products and services that are required in a sustainable economy.
Needed is for Republican and Democrat leaders to get smart of sustainable economics and move the new economic paradigm forward as a blueprint for renewing the nation.
As we see with Obamacare, if the margin of difference between impoverishment and employment is too small, people might take the easier way out. Who could blame them if substantial opportunity is denied to them because wealthy Americans and corporations are delinquent in their performance.
Poverty is a direct outcome from deficient commercial enterprise performance and government policies that fail to lead and motivate the nation. A president and Congress without commercial business experience and success on a large scale lack competence to address this problem. Remember in November.

POLITICO's Burgess Everett has the story: "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has vowed to press the GOP on unemployment benefits - forcing them to keep taking votes on a bill to extend aid to the long-term unemployed. But Republicans have rejected it twice since the program expired on Dec. 28.
"Sens. Dan Coats of Indiana, Rob Portman of Ohio, Dean Heller of Nevada and Susan Collins of Maine want a deal that could bring the Democratic drumbeat to an end. They gathered last week to plan how to revisit the cause when the Senate returns next week, hoping they can get Democrats to agree to their policy changes and finally move the red-hot issue off the Senate's plate. "We're still working on the same thing, which is solving the problem," Portman said in an interview Tuesday. "I continue to believe that we can solve this if Democrats want to.""
