Stimulus Not Even Signed and Dem’s Start Backing Off Jobs Claim
On “This Week” with George Stephanopolous, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made a very carefully nuanced statement about the anticipated impact of the stimulus package on jobs. He said the bill will “create or maintain three to four million jobs.” And so the backtracking officially begins. According to Schumer, the so called stimulus bill needn’t now create any “new” jobs. All it now needs to do | Read More »
The Incredible, Shrinking Jobs Forecast
Just like President Obama’s income threshold for those who would see tax increases under his administration’s plans – which went down, down, down, by the day – the promised number of jobs that will be “saved or created” by the President’s economic stimulus bill has been quietly revised downward. Last night, at a gala to honor Honest Abe Lincoln, President Obama said the following: “I | Read More »

Make-Work Jobs vs. REAL Jobs
In regards to George’s interview with Michael Steele on Sunday’s “This Week with George Stenphanopoulos”, I can’t believe George does not know the difference between make-work jobs and REAL jobs. He seems to think a job is a job—as long as it pays. “HEY! George, your liberal credentials are showing.” Now I’m not as smart as George, but I do know the difference. “So George, | Read More »
Make the U.S.A. home to tax-haven seeking corporations!
By enacting the FairTax (H.R. 25), instead of allowing ignorant Democrat Senate leaders work to punsish tax-haven seeking corporations, let’s invite the world’s corporations to set up shop here and bring their billion$ with them. Not to mention jobs, jobs, jobs. Report: Over 8 in 10 Corporations Have Tax-havens Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who requested the report, have pushed for tougher | Read More »

What will happen with an Obama Presidency
(1) Our family is barely getting by each month as it is now and our taxes are going to go up.(2) Our retirement plans are down at least 30% (by the way, why hasn’t the McCain Campaign gone after Obama on this: the reason the stock market is “tanking” is because it is anticipating an Obama Presidency!)(3) Our health insurance costs have triple in the | Read More »
Did You Hear?
Later today, in Lake Worth, Florida, Senator Barack Obama is holding a jobs summit , with four democrat governors and others — including, prominently, Governor Jennifer Granholm from Michigan. Perhaps, only those of us in Michigan can find the twisted humor in such an invitation. After all, we’re still waiting for Governor Granholm’s economic and jobs plan she promised us years ago, while factory after | Read More »
Eminem endorses Obama… I’m switching my vote!
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. There are so many important topics in the news today it’s tough to know where to start. I mean, seriously. We could cover Jack Hoogendyk’s second debate yesterday with Senator (for Life) Carl Levin, this one down in the motor city at the Detroit Economic Club. After all, Hoogendyk again assailed Levin’s position on the bailout, pledging that | Read More »
A Simple Choice
McCain is going to freeze spending, keep taxes low, confront the threat of global warming, and make America energy independent. On the other hand, Obama plans to raise capital gains taxes. We are not likely to have much in capital gains because of the economic crisis caused by liberals Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, as well as Obama’s financial advisors and campaign contributors that ran | Read More »
Five Questions I hope Red State Readers can answer
Okay so I know this isn’t the usual Redstate Diary but I have these thoughts that go through my head from time to time and I thought you guys might be interested.
Promises made behind the curtain and Obama’s Union backing
I found this to be very interesting. Most companies will move elesewhere if forced to unionize, and strong arm tactics are a done deal without secret ballots. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,356643,00.html
A McCain campaign promise I would like to see
“My friends, the devastation on the Gulf Coast is massive. Homes and businesses have been destroyed, and will have to be rebuilt. We have to insure that the labor force that rebuilds America is American. These jobs need to be filled by honest, hard-working Americans, helping other honest, hard-working Americans. These are the fundamentals that have made America great.”
Wonder why we are losing jobs to other Nations?
Wonder why we are losing jobs to other Nations? One reason is our ridiculous corporate tax rate. Corporations currently pay a 40% tax rate. That is higher than all but three nations in the world (Japan-40.69%, Kuwait-55%, and UAE-55%). Our tax rate is over 14% over the worldwide average.Since consumers actually pay all corporate taxes through the price of the product or service that means | Read More »
Brainstorming for McCain: “5 Days of Issues”
Since Obama and Co. are making a big fuss trying to depict McCain and Palin as weak on domestic issues, it would be nice to take this head-on in a way to get as much media attention and in front of as many eyeballs as possible… A full week of issues, with each day dedicated to a topic.
