REPUBLICANS WANT TO CUT PELL GRANTS BUT DON'T WANT TO CUT SUBSIDIES ON CORPORATE JETS

#1
Finally President Obama went on the offensive pointing out Republican hypocracy. While Republicans want to cut anything benefitting the middle class, they DON'T want to cut tax loopholes benefitting the rich. Why not cut everything?

If Obama can paint the Republicans as being pro-rich and anti-middle class, it will doom them when the middle class has the votes.

Americans are struggling to make ends meet. The only Presidet to serve more than 2 terms was Franklin D. Roosevelt during the great depression. In fact he was elected to 4 terms (after which a law was passed limiting the President to 2 terms). FDR is considered one of the most liberal presidents in history. But people were struggling even way more than today.

If the Republicans continue to represent and defend the rich in these troubled times, they will hand over 2012 to Obama and the Democrats.

Go ahead, Bachmann, Romney and others, make our day.

Republicans have been waging CLASS WARFARE on the middle class for decades. It's about time the President stands up them and show real Americans what the Republicans are all about!

What are you talking about?

Half of Americans don't even pay taxes.

"Shared sacrifice"???? "Tax cuts for the rich"????

Its not your wealth to "spread around".

The gravy train for freeloaders is over.

George Bush gave the rich all the tax cuts they asked for. What happened? THE GREAT RECESSION WITH HUGE BUDGET DEFICITS. The Democrats deserve the blame to, to be fair.

RUN ON TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH IN 2012 AND EXPECT TO GET BLOWN AWAY.

Good.

Corporations shouldn't pay any taxes.

All corporate taxes, as well as regulatory-related expenses and artificially inflated union wages are ultimately shouldered by the end-consumer: "the middle class."

Socialism destroys the middle class.

And Obama ran on ending these tax cuts but flip flopped and extended them.We have a spending problem but also a revenue problem and giving the richest 1% tax breaks right now does not help.The richest 1% pay a big load of the taxes in this country but when they own over 70% of the wealth what do you expect??

Ok, maybe I am the simpleton here, but if the Marxist, I mean Democrats, just keep pushing "unfairness" all the time, why not just scrap the progressive income tax system that started this nonsense, and go to a fair Tax?

There ya go, no more class warfare bullshit?? Its a FAIR TAX

See, simple:+waving-5

Now we can go on to the real issue which is the legalized counterfeiting of our money, that has actually destroyed the middle class

Re: REPUBLICANS WANT TO CUT PELL GRANTS BUT DON'T WANT TO CUT SUBSIDIES ON CORPORATE JETS

As long as the poor use the government, the capitalists keep pushing prices up for the things that poor people need. Food, energy, medical care. And the government will keep paying through the nose, else the there will be rioting in the streets.
The only reason there is a budget deficit was because the wolves got in and reduced taxes on the rich to under 50 percent. We have also seen reducing taxes on the rich does not reduce the unemployment. Now that the top 10 percent own 80 percent of the wealth, it's only a democracy on paper.

America was not founded as a 'democracy'. A social democracy is legalized theft, every progressive's wet dream.

You're right, once the Ponzi scheme of socialism collapses there will be riots and probably civil war.

Yes that 10% of the workforce that is union is the biggest reason for all this!!:doh1Just look at John Deere, Caterpillar, Ford, Hart&Carter.......and many other corporations with union work forces that are making record profit and get back with me on your tired ,untrue, worn out mantra.When that is all you have you continue to show how little you know.

Right-to-work states have lower unemployment, steady job growth, lower taxes and overall better business climates. They have growing populations and have been attracting businesses from other states.

Radical mob-rule union states are bankrupt and not attracting ANY new investment whatsoever, especially with a Marxist sitting in the White House.

Jobs, Income Data Show Right-To-Work States Working

By SEAN HIGGINS, INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted 06/29/2011 07:09 PM ET

The business world is abuzz over the National Labor Relations Board's complaint vs. Boeing's new South Carolina production line. For NLRB critics, the case boils down to one thing: "right-to-work" laws.

Right-to-work states have generally lower unemployment, higher job growth, lower taxes and better business climates. They have growing populations and have been attracting businesses from other states.

In most states, once a workplace is unionized, employees are required to join the union or they can't work there. But 22 states, including South Carolina, have passed laws that give employees the right not to join.

Hence the term "right-to-work."

Unions dislike these laws for the obvious reason: It reduces their membership.

Critics like the Chamber of Commerce say a union-friendly NLRB is simply punishing Boeing for choosing a right-to-work state, a charge the agency has rejected.

But if the complaint stands, it could stop firms in heavily unionized states from expanding or moving to right-to-work states.

Why go to these states?

"It gives employers more flexibility and it gives the workers more individual rights," said Chris Edwards, senior fellow at the free-market Cato Institute. "Unionized workforces are more likely to demand unaffordable compensation that puts the businesses at a disadvantage."

Better Job, Wage Gains

It seems to be a good deal for the workers, too. The U.S. unemployment rate is 9.1%. In right-to-work states the average is 7.9% — 8.6% adjusted for population.

Between 1977-08, employment grew 100% in right-to-work states vs. the national average of 71% and 56.5% in non-right-to-work states. That's according to a January study that Ohio University economics professor Richard Vedder did for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

In this period, real per capita income in the right-to-work states grew 62.3% vs. the national average of 54.7% and 52.8% for non-right-to-work states.

Vedder has studied right-to-work laws for decades and argues that this success is not a coincidence.

" I've been looking for ways to show that these laws don't really (impact) anything. But I haven't found it yet," Vedder said.

Between 2000-09, about 5 million people moved to right-to-work states from other states. The population of 25- to 34-year-olds in right-to-work states has grown 16%, according to an American Legislative Exchange Council study, indicating that they "attract the most productive members of society."

Critics argue that these are correlations that don't show causation. The 22 right-to-work states are pretty diverse. Nevada has a unionization rate of around 15%. The epicenter for the housing bust has a 12.1% jobless rate.

Also, several non-right-to-work states like New York have strong, resilient economies, notes Univer sity of Oregon economist Gordon Lafer in a March paper for the liberal Economic Policy Institute.

"The simple truth is that if ... both RTW and non-RTW states can foster booming job markets, something in these states' economies, demographics, or policies other than RTW clearly are driving their growth," Lafer wrote.

Right-to-work fans concede that a variety of factors go into the relative success of a state's economy. But the labor laws are a strong indicator, they argue.

"Nobody is saying that right-to-work is the only factor, but if the bottom 14 states for personal income growth (between 1999 and 2009) are all non-right-to- work states, that's a pretty strong negative correlation," said Stan Greer, senior research associate for National Right to Work's National Institute for Labor Relations Research.

Right-to-work states have lower unemployment, steady job growth, lower taxes and overall better business climates. They have growing populations and have been attracting businesses from other states.

Yet the facts do not back this!!Of course they are not mentioning that all those right to work states have the largest populations of illegal immigrants and that is why they are the fastest growing!!Don't let the facts get in the way of a good union rant though , and also do not mention that the top 15 states for poverty are all right to work states.Of course that is good for corporations and that is why this is in Investment Business Weekly.The dumbass rednecks down south are just to plain stupid to figure it out though..thank God!!Stay stupid and poor scabs!!

Low-Tax Texas Creates More than Half of New 2010 U.S. Jobs

October 19th, 2010 ? No Comments



Aaron Worthing of Patterico’s Pontifications has a “jaw dropping” statistic:​
More than half of the jobs created in the last year… were created in Texas alone.

Yes, really.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 214,000 net new jobs were created in the United States from August 2009 to August 2010. Texas created 119,000 jobs during the same period. If every state in the country had performed as well, we’d have created about 1.5 million jobs nationally during the past year[.]

And the lessons do we get from that?

What does Austin know that Washington doesn’t? At its simplest: Don’t overtax and -spend, keep regulations to a minimum, avoid letting unions and trial lawyers run riot, and display an enormous neon sign saying, “Open for Business.”

The irony in that statement is from what I heard, Austin’s local government doesn’t know that, but the rest of the state does. Still, you should definitely read the whole thing.

But, gee, it’s almost like as if you beat up businesses enough, that they will flee the jurisdiction. Imagine that.

But remember, if you think Obama is a job killer, well you are just a racist. There is no two ways about it.
I can’t believe it’s not Oregon?
