Another program?

President Obama has announced he will create through executive fiat another federal job training program. That’s right – another program on top of the more than 50 federal employment and training programs that already exists. It might have been nice to wait for Vice President Biden to complete his redundant review of the workforce development system before adding more confusion to an already bloated bureaucracy. However, this announcement does raise an important question: Where in the maze of confusing training programs does the president intend to put this latest initiative?  

The House has already acted to provide workers and job-seekers with a more streamlined, dynamic, and effective job training system. Mr. President, let’s fix the problem.
