How is President Obama going to say anything in his big jobs speech tomorrow night that will make a difference?
Apparently he is not. Obama’s new jobs plan looks remarkably like his $830 billion 2009 economic stimulus package.
According to Al Hunt the latest Obama job plan stimulus includes tax cuts, infrastructure spending, unemployment benefits extension and direct aid to state and local governments. At an estimated cost of $300 billion, it looks like another so-called stimulus that won’t be any more effective than Obamacrats’ http://www.examiner.com/right-side-politics-in-national/the-obama-stimulus-predictions-vs-reality.
According to the Associated Press almost half of the $300 billion cost of new Obama stimulus would come from a one year extension of the two percent reduction in the payroll tax paid by workers due to expire December 31, and a new decrease in the portion of the tax paid by employers.
In typical Obama fashion, Obama proposes to pay for his new stimulus plan by asking Congress to raise tax revenue in later years.

I will be called petty here, but this needs to be addressed: It was ill-advised for Donald Trump to re-apply a spray tan so close to a debate where he would be standing in front of a red background. He looked like John Boehner blushing. Look at that. LOOK | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Inbetween a number of nasty (and at this point tiresome) exchanges between Cruz and Rubio, one guy on the stage stood calm and collected in the face of constant attacks and immature interruptions from Donald Trump. Apart from one criticism of Kasich on Medicaid expansion, Bush stayed focused on the prize, and came out the clear winner. Unlike the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This was amazing. John Dickerson is supposed to be the debate moderator and instead he starts getting into a debate with Ted Cruz regarding the appointment of Supreme Court justices during an election year. Cruz rightly pointed out it’s been precedent for 80 years not to do this. Dickerson then started arguing with Cruz about when Justice Anthony Kennedy | Read More »
