|And of course they have plenty of selective memories and downright lies too. However, hearing McConnell and Boehner talk they have absolutely no vision for putting America to work except Corporate dogma and more of the same policies that put us here:
"The truth is, the president has a problem that no amount of political strategizing can solve: his economic policies simply haven't worked," Mr. McConnell said. "Yet he and his advisers seem to be the only folks in Washington who aren't ready to admit it."
But wait, the President has not had the guts to fight for his policies. He has allowed Republicans to extend all their failed policies from the last decade. And of course everyone but folks like McConnell remember how those turned out. Of course when you profit hansomely from everyone else's pain it is easy to forget.
Then we have Boehner. All this man cares about is keeping the good times rolling for himself and the very small sliver of Americans he actually cares about. His ideas are more of the same and his arguments are lies:
"Job creators in America are essentially on strike," Mr. Boehner said, according to excerpts released by the speaker's office. "The problem is not confusion about the policies. The problem is the policies."
But he repeated his belief that the government is overregulating, overtaxing and overspending. He said private businesses that would like to create jobs had been hampered by Mr. Obama's administration.
"They've been antagonized by a government that favors bureaucrats over market-based solutions," he said. "They've been demoralized by a government that causes despair when we need it to provide reassurance and inspire confidence."
Business hampered by the policies of the Obama Administration?? How can that be when they are enjoying record profits once more??:
The nation's workers may be struggling, but American companies just had their best quarter ever.
American businesses earned profits at an annual rate of $1.659 trillion in the third quarter, according to a Commerce Department report released Tuesday. That is the highest figure recorded since the government began keeping track over 60 years ago, at least in nominal or noninflation-adjusted terms.
Corporate profits have been doing extremely well for a while. Since their cyclical low in the fourth quarter of 2008, profits have grown for seven consecutive quarters, at some of the fastest rates in history. As a share of gross domestic product, corporate profits also have been increasing, and they now represent 11.2 percent of total output. That is the highest share since the fourth quarter of 2006, when they accounted for 11.7 percent of output.
You see Corporate profits have been doing quite well. These folks can well afford to hire and help America recover but like the Republican Party that represents them they simply do not want to. They are hoping to snatch all power back and really stick it to working America as they finish off what is left of the middle-class.
And what of all these regulations that are stifling business??:
An emphasis on deregulation can contribute to enormous economic dislocation, and this review of the studies of regulations in place finds little evidence of significant negative effects on employment. Overall, the picture that emerges from this review is a positive one. For decades, regulations have generally and consistently struck a reasonable balance, with their benefits to health, safety, and well-being far exceeding their costs.
In fact, business economists feel that the current environment of business regulation is good for business:
Regulatory activity has gained a lot of attention, with many groups suggesting that American businesses are overregulated by the current administration. With that said, 80 percent of survey respondents felt that the current regulatory environment was "good" for American businesses and the overall economy.
But that is because Republican politicians are only concerned with one thing. Making sure themselves and the folks they represent can walk all over the rest of us without any rules whatsoever. They hope to allow them to milk the American system dry and not give one thing back to it. They do not care about creating jobs they just want to steal even more from you because you cannot find a job.
Yes this Republican "jobs" plan in nothing more than Corporate Welfare, failed dogma and lies. We expected nothing less from the selfish, ignorant modern Republican Party.
