Obama Reveals a Sure Fire Plan for Economic Recovery

27 09 2011

In a town hall meeting hosted by LinkedIn, President Obama showed that he
does know what he is doing when it came to the economy. Despite accusations by
Republicans that he is trying Destroy the country, he shows that he is very much
trying to save the country from an recession that was the Result of the 8 years
of the Bush presidency. He began by addressing the unemployment problem facing
the nation. He said that the American Jobs Act would put people back to work.

In regards to taxes , Obama said that the tax code must be reformed and that
everyone must do their share. I assume by everyone he meant the rich.

He said that the middle class should not pay higher taxes than the rich.

He said that in order for the economy to recover, America must pass the
American Jobs Act. He said that the bill would increase the GDP by 2% and would
increase employment by 1.9%. The numbers might sound small, but from the time
the economy was stable to the beginning of the recession the Unemployment rate
only increased so the small numbers have a large impact.

A small business owner asked the President if Obama if he would get rid of
taxes and regulations that hurt small businesses. To that question, he replied
that the government has already cut taxes for small businesses 16 times since he
has been in office.

Ron Paul Comes Out the Winner in Last Nights Debate

23 09 2011

Last night’s debate was a real proving ground for Republican presidential  hopefuls. It was a no holds barred battle of  wits. The winner of this  round was Ron Paul, the Libertarian Congressman from Texas. Even though he was not asked many questions, what he said counted. Congressman Paul  always says what he means, he doesn’t change his answers to suit his audience. He spares no feelings and never compromises his Ideals. When all of the candidates were introduced  Ron Paul Ron Paul received the most cheers, while Newt Gingrich received the majority of the boos. I enjoyed this debate, as It addressed some very important issues. Most of the Questions came from  online viewers. This was a showdown not to be missed.

One of the first highlights of the evening was when Michele Bachman was asked to answer a question from an audience member of an earlier debate. The question was, “Out of every dollar I earn, how much do I get to keep?”She replied “You earned every dollar, you should keep every  dollar.”Then she goes on to mention that he would have to give some of the money to the government to pay to run the country. Of course we Know this is called paying taxes. So this was a real round about way of avoiding the Question that she never really answered. John Huntsman when asked about the economy said that Natural gas subsidies would alleviate the nation’s woes. Herman Cain supports a flat tax that he calls 999, yet gave no details. Mitt Romney Mentioned that the working class needs the most help in the ailing economy.

In 1995 the self titled ”Foo Fighters” debuted and was an unexpected hit. In order to support the album Dave Grohl formed a live band. The original band consisted of Nate Mendel on bass,  William Goldsmith on drums

Points that Congress Should Consider to Help Decrease the Debt

14 09 2011

Points that Congress Should Consider to Help Decrease the Debt:

1.  Stop the $2 billion a day war. Our goal was reached last year. Why are we still there? Revenge?That certainly has already been met. We have been there TEN YEARS and over 5,000 people too long! Bring back our soldiers and war equipment
(do not leave the war equipment there to be used on us at a later date). Tea Party it is time to become a PEACE PARTY.

2.  Increase taxes on the Rich in this country so that they will pay the same percentage of tax as the rest of us who are well under $200,000 in this country  pay .

3 .  Increase taxes on large industry and large corporations why are
they getting huge tax breaks to outsource supplies and jobs oversea to other countries. Impose a penalty tax on any industry or corporation which out sources materials, products, or jobs to foreign countries

4.  Reinstate protective tariffs. Make it less expensive to buy American
products made from American material made by American workers under American regulations.

5.  Reject any proposed decreases in minimum wage standards, child labor laws and labor & bargaining . Protect the American Worker who is also the American Voting Public.

6.  Congressmen should have to serve at least 15 yrs to get any money when they leave office. The pay should be considerably less than their in office pay and the amount determined by the number of years in Congress, 15,20, 25, 30,etc. That is how the American worker is give retirement . The Congressman should have to be at least 65 before drawing any of the money.

7. Congress should never be allowed to vote for their own pay raises. (this is the only thing that both parties could agree on.). With the debt ceiling so high and you threatened to not pay government employees, military, police,fireman, teachers and people on Social Security, SHAME ON YOU FOR VOTING A PAY INCREASE FOR YOURSELVES! Congress pay increase should only be determined by the lower CPI or 3% and maybe should be approved by the American Voting Public. IT IS TIME TO BE ACTIVE. The American public can no longer be the passive silent majority of this country. BE SILENT NO LONGER! Write your Congressmen,Senators, and President. LET the people whom we employ that they are no longer our bosses but we are their boss. Congress work in our best interest (like you promised). WE will take Action. Let Your voices be HEARD!

Read, pass it on and
Act.
