the GOP is right about one thing there has been people engaging in class warfare
for more then a decade now but it was not and is not Obama or the democrats.
Durbin(D) Illinois said the senate won't even consider BO's son of porkulus
until sometime in October. Looks like even his own party is ignoring his plea
to pass the bill now!his 'deficit reduction' plan is more of the
same class warefare demagoguery. nothing more, nothing less. Punting on
addressing entitlements is not leadership, but then we've never seen leadership
from this guy.
Lost, I enjoy how you continue to refer to Obama's $787 billion dollar stimulus
as a 'porkulus'... while George W. Bush was the FIRST one to do
create a stimulus, for $700 billion. We need things to stir the
economy. The Bush tax cuts for the wealthy was passed in 2001. Where
are the jobs? Instead of working to CREATE jobs the GOP has only
stalled government to get more tax breaks. That is not government.
And, that is not working.
Pagan,TARP was NOT a stimulus, sorry to disappoint you. It was
intended stabilize the banking industry, which it did, and that portion made a
profit for the treasury.Where are the jobs? between 1/2001 and
11/2007 (following the tax cuts) the US ADDED 8.8 million jobs (source: US
Bureau of Labor statistics.)Since BO has taken over and passed and
spent his porkulus, we've LOST 2.975 million jobs (same source)Obamacare and cap and tax through EPA regulations and massive deficits (3
times what bush generated) are supressing the economy.What BO did
and wants to do more of isn't working.
Where are the jobs? Mostly in India and China. Why? You don't have to pay a
living wage or benefits in those countries. If we would just follow the
republican plan of eliminating minimum wage, ending unions and making employees
pay for all their health care and retirement, reducing taxes for the "job
creators" instead of the FICA taxes that benefit the middle and lower
class, cut the entitlement programs that benefit the middle and lower
classes,then the wealthy people would be happy to bring jobs back to America.
