Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

The American Jobs Act was a $500 billion spending package that had nothing in it, (with the exception of some infrastructure projects), that promoted real organic growth in the economy.

I'd block it to. Thanks to both parties for putting the hammer down on that "dog".

Many Democrats have balked at the bill, siding with the Republicans, especially those facing difficult re-elections in congressional districts where they are hesitant to support unpopular legislation.

You ever get tired of being wrong jaxspp?

In the Senate, the bill was stalled by Majority leader Harry Reid on September 27, 2011 who said "I don’t think there’s anything more important for a jobs measure than China trade, and that’s what we’re going to work on next week," with emphasis on taking up more tenuous legislation which is less likely to draw political attention.

I don't think Harry is a republican.

McConnell wanted to bring it up as an amendment to the China trade bill, but, Harry said no.

The administration implemented most, if not all, of that "act".

I said be specific, you failed. F- for the day.

Google "American Jobs Act", read.

Jobs plan(s) blocked by the House?

Specificity is the word of the day.

I think your realtor is a little off in his/her evaluation, 3 for 1?

I got a good deal on it. I'm looking in Florida as well. I don't think I mentioned my building in Bay City, I do remember mentioning my T.C. property.

Doesn't matter though, I'm sure you're happy for me.

1. The economy, before the bubble bursting, was performing NEAR capacity. Near does not mean "at".

2. Drill and cut regulations? You're not paying attention.

3. Which "job plans" did the republicans obstruct? Be specific please.

PS, I checked on buildings in Bay City, the realtor said they were having 3 for 1 sales, so congratulations on having a building in Bay City. Where did you get YOUR business degree?

Plus, all Obama jobs plans aside from the stimulus, which we have discussed before, have been blocked in the House. As I've said before, and will say again, GOP wants Obama to do something, laments government interference, then blocks his efforts. The GOP wants to be in government, has no idea how to govern.

"First, the economy under Carter was performing UNDER capacity, hence, job creation was far easier.

G.W. Bush presided over an economy that was near capacity, joblessness was low, hence, new job creation would NATURALLY slow.

Where, exactly did you get your "MBA"? "

Don't need an MBA to do math.

Your comment makes no sense whatsoever.

If you think the Bush economy was performing at capacity, once again I would be wasting time with you. And if you are going to ignore the government job cuts that have occurred under Obama, you really are an ostrich. This is the funny thing, no GOP jobs plans other than drill for oil and cut regulations, yet they are experts in job creation. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

All kidding aside jax read Carter's message at:

It could have been written yesterday.

Hmm. Seem even Carter studied economics.

Of course he was a nuclear engineer and could cipher a digit or two.

• Pursuing international economic policies that promote economic recovery throughout the world, encourage an expansion of world trade, and maintain a strong international monetary system..."

• Adopting promptly an effective national energy program;

• Managing Federal budget expenditures carefully and prudently, so that we can meet national needs while gradually reducing the share of our national output devoted to Federal spending;

• Using tax reductions to ensure steady growth of the private economy and reforming the tax system to make it fairer, simpler, and more progressive;

• Working to reduce the Federal deficit and balance the budget as rapidly as the developing strength of the economy allows;

• Improving existing programs and developing new ones to attack the problem of structural unemployment among the disadvantaged;

• Promoting greater business capital formation in order to enhance productivity gains, increase standards of living, and reduce the chances that capacity shortages would inhibit expansion later on;

That's what makes President Obama's policy record so abysmal. His capacity "gap" should be adding jobs at the rate of about 300K a month. It is not and his administration seems to be doing everything in their collective power to slow growth.
