Too many on the dole, and under educated, is why figures stack up this way.
With half the population getting some kind of government entitlement and the
other half paying for it, why should ANYONE work?
As I see it, Romney has not offered the middle class any better alternative to
Obama. No question that Obama is a disappointment -- not totally his fault,
thanks to a GOP out from the start anxious to see him fail at the expense of
America's recovery. What we hear from Romney is more tax cuts,
austerity in government programs, pro-oil/Keystone rhetoric... this all
translates into continued debt, government layoffs and reduced help to those out
of work, and America's middle class suffering from more yo-yo pricing of
foreign oil with no plan to move America onto the next age of domestic
price-stable energy (solar, wind, geothermal).While Romney was the
best of a bad set of GOP extremist candidates, he still falls short on being an
effective uniter and problem solver to appeal to moderates, even though the
"old" Romney was a good moderate in Massachusetts. Playing to the
GOP's right-wing means he'll lose the moderates he needs to defeat
Obama.Obama and a divided Congress will simply mean four more years
of what we've already had -- been there, done that!
To: BaronMitt Romney has laid out a Economic and Energy plan very
different from Obama's. It is easy to tell the difference!The
GOP including the House Republicans have 36 bills passed to help the economy!
Many include Bi-Partisan support. The Senate and President Obama have failed to
act on them! The Senate controlled by the Democrats has not passed a budget in 3
plus years. Who is holding up the Economy? Obama's budget was defeated in
the House 414-0 and in the Senate 99-0. Not a democrat voted for it! Who has
failed us?Your paragraph two statement holds no water either!
Romneys energy plan includes development of Keystone as well as offshore
drilling, public land leases being issued, reduced restrictions on other source
development including Nuclear. Oil and Natural gas exploration and growth
development will result in over 1 million jobs. That grows the economy and
Federal Tax income through royalities, corporate taxes and individual income tax
receipt increases. It will also spur non energy economic growth as well!YoYo oil prices are affected by a weakend dollar devalued by deficit
spending(5.4 Trillion in 3 years) which Obama has overseen.
To: Baron,Corporations paying 37% taxes have been driven to other
countries to bring their tax burdens down. Romney will lower that tax to bring
them, and their jobs back to America. Nothing difficult about this one of many
examples.These two men are not similar, and like many Americans, you
need to do some homework. Don't let the media, and distorted claims form
your opinions, do some research.
80,000 jobs against the flood of June grads is pathetic.Obama will pay for
ignoring the economy for two years while he pushed Obamacare down our
throats.He considers economic wealth to be a giant ATM for his social
agenda. America isn't like that.Just the other day there were
headlines about a national vacation policy.I don't believe 51 million
voters want to live in France.
Obama is currently asking Congress for money to assist other countries and their
economies. We have given billions to Finland, Mexico, Pakistan, Egypt,
Afghanistan, Brazil, etc.This money would be a boost to our private
sector, and small businesses, to create jobs.
Liberals are stuck in a mindset that will only destroy the middle class,
creating an ever-widening gap between the elite and an ever-growing lower class,
with government growth the goal and cause. I do not believe in people in
positions of power, because they abuse this power and their words are empty
rhetoric. I believe in principles, principles that free the minds of the people
to be anxiously involved in creativity, productivity, and the general welfare of
the nation and its people.
