President Obama Presents American Jobs Act (Sept 8, 2011)

President Obama Presents American Jobs Act (Sept 8, 2011)

President Obama:
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice
President, members of Congress, and fellow Americans: Tonight
we meet at an urgent time for our country. We continue to face an economic
crisis that has left millions of our neighbors jobless, and a
political crisis that’s made things worse. This past week, reporters
have been asking, “What will this speech
mean for the President? What will it mean for Congress? How will it affect their
polls, and the next election?” But the millions of Americans
who are watching right now, they don’t care about politics. They have real-life concerns. Many have spent months
looking for work. Others are doing their best just
to scrape by — giving up nights out with the family to save
on gas or make the mortgage; postponing retirement to
send a kid to college. These men and women grew up with
faith in an America where hard work and responsibility
paid off. They believed in a country where
everyone gets a fair shake and does their fair share — where
if you stepped up, did your job, and were loyal to your company,
that loyalty would be rewarded with a decent salary
and good benefits; maybe a raise once in a while. If you did the right
thing, you could make it. Anybody could make
it in America. For decades now, Americans have
watched that compact erode. They have seen the decks too
often stacked against them. And they know that Washington
has not always put their interests first. The people of this
country work hard to meet their responsibilities. The question tonight is
whether we’ll meet ours. The question is whether, in the
face of an ongoing national crisis, we can stop the
political circus and actually do something to help the economy. (applause) The question — the question
is whether we can restore some of the fairness and security
that has defined this nation since our beginning. Those of us here tonight can’t
solve all our nation’s woes. Ultimately, our recovery will
be driven not by Washington, but by our businesses
and our workers. But we can help. We can make a difference. There are steps we can
take right now to improve people’s lives. I am sending this Congress
a plan that you should pass right away. It’s called the
American Jobs Act. There should be nothing
controversial about this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the
kind of proposal that’s been supported by both Democrats
and Republicans — including many who sit here tonight. And everything in this
bill will be paid for. Everything. (applause) The purpose of the American
Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more
money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs
for construction workers, more jobs for teachers,
more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for
long-term unemployed. (applause) It will provide — it will
provide a tax break for companies who hire new workers,
and it will cut payroll taxes in half for every working American
and every small business. (applause) It will provide a jolt to an
economy that has stalled, and give companies confidence
that if they invest and if they hire, there will be customers
for their products and services. You should pass this
jobs plan right away. (applause) Everyone here knows that small
businesses are where most new jobs begin. And you know that while
corporate profits have come roaring back, smaller
companies haven’t. So for everyone who speaks so
passionately about making life easier for “job creators,”
this plan is for you. (applause) Pass this jobs bill —
pass this jobs bill, and starting tomorrow, small
businesses will get a tax cut if they hire new workers or
if they raise workers’ wages. Pass this jobs bill, and all
small business owners will also see their payroll taxes
cut in half next year. (applause) If you have 50 employees — if
you have 50 employees making an average salary, that’s
an $80,000 tax cut. And all businesses will be able
to continue writing off the investments they make in 2012. It’s not just Democrats who have
supported this kind of proposal. Fifty House Republicans have
proposed the same payroll tax cut that’s in this plan. You should pass it right away. (applause) Pass this jobs bill, and
we can put people to work rebuilding America. Everyone here knows we have
badly decaying roads and bridges all over the country. Our highways are
clogged with traffic. Our skies are the most
congested in the world. It’s an outrage. Building a world-class
transportation system is part of what made us
a economic superpower. And now we’re going to sit back
and watch China build newer airports and faster railroads? At a time when millions of
unemployed construction workers could build them
right here in America? (applause) There are private construction
companies all across America just waiting to get to work. There’s a bridge that needs
repair between Ohio and Kentucky that’s on one of the
busiest trucking routes in North America. A public transit project in
Houston that will help clear up one of the worst areas
of traffic in the country. And there are schools throughout
this country that desperately need renovating. How can we expect our kids to
do their best in places that are literally falling apart? This is America. Every child deserves a great
school — and we can give it to them, if we act now. (applause) The American Jobs Act will
repair and modernize at least 35,000 schools. It will put people to work right
now fixing roofs and windows, installing science labs
and high-speed Internet in classrooms all
across this country. It will rehabilitate homes and
businesses in communities hit hardest by foreclosures. It will jumpstart thousands
of transportation projects all across the country. And to make sure the
money is properly spent, we’re building on reforms
we’ve already put in place. No more earmarks. No more boondoggles. No more bridges to nowhere. We’re cutting the red tape that
prevents some of these projects from getting started
as quickly as possible. And we’ll set up an independent
fund to attract private dollars and issue loans based on
two criteria: how badly a construction project is needed
and how much good it will do for the economy. (applause) This idea came from a bill
written by a Texas Republican and a Massachusetts Democrat. The idea for a big boost in
construction is supported by America’s largest business
organization and America’s largest labor organization. It’s the kind of proposal that’s
been supported in the past by Democrats and Republicans alike. You should pass it right away. (applause) Pass this jobs bill, and
thousands of teachers in every state will
go back to work. These are the men and women
charged with preparing our children for a world where
the competition has never been tougher. But while they’re adding
teachers in places like South Korea, we’re laying
them off in droves. It’s unfair to our kids. It undermines their
future and ours. And it has to stop. Pass this bill, and put our
teachers back in the classroom where they belong. (applause) Pass this jobs bill, and
companies will get extra tax credits if they hire
America’s veterans. We ask these men and women
to leave their careers, leave their families, risk their
lives to fight for our country. The last thing they should have
to do is fight for a job when they come home. (applause) Pass this bill, and hundreds of
thousands of disadvantaged young people will have the hope
and the dignity of a summer job next year. And their parents — (applause) — their parents, low-income
Americans who desperately want to work, will have more
ladders out of poverty. Pass this jobs bill, and
companies will get a $4,000 tax credit if they hire
anyone who has spent more than six months
looking for a job. (applause) We have to do more to help the
long-term unemployed in their search for work. This jobs plan builds on a
program in Georgia that several Republican leaders
have highlighted, where people who collect
unemployment insurance participate in temporary work
as a way to build their skills while they look for
a permanent job. The plan also extends
unemployment insurance for another year. (applause) If the millions of unemployed
Americans stopped getting this insurance, and stopped
using that money for basic necessities, it would
be a devastating blow to this economy. Democrats and Republicans in
this chamber have supported unemployment insurance
plenty of times in the past. And in this time of
prolonged hardship, you should pass it
again — right away. (applause) Pass this jobs bill, and the
typical working family will get a $1,500 tax cut next year. Fifteen hundred dollars that
would have been taken out of your pocket will go
into your pocket. This expands on the tax cut
that Democrats and Republicans already passed for this year. If we allow that tax cut to
expire — if we refuse to act — middle-class families will get
hit with a tax increase at the worst possible time. We can’t let that happen. I know that some of you have
sworn oaths to never raise any taxes on anyone for
as long as you live. Now is not the time to carve
out an exception and raise middle-class taxes, which
is why you should pass this bill right away. (applause) This is the American Jobs Act. It will lead to new jobs
for construction workers, for teachers, for veterans,
for first responders, young people and the
long-term unemployed. It will provide tax credits to
companies that hire new workers, tax relief to small
business owners, and tax cuts for
the middle class. And here’s the other thing I
want the American people to know: The American Jobs Act
will not add to the deficit. It will be paid for. And here’s how. (applause) The agreement we passed in July
will cut government spending by about $1 trillion over
the next 10 years. It also charges this Congress
to come up with an additional $1.5 trillion in
savings by Christmas. Tonight, I am asking you to
increase that amount so that it covers the full cost
of the American Jobs Act. And a week from Monday, I’ll
be releasing a more ambitious deficit plan — a plan that will
not only cover the cost of this jobs bill, but stabilize
our debt in the long run. (applause) This approach is basically
the one I’ve been advocating for months. In addition to the trillion
dollars of spending cuts I’ve already signed into law, it’s a
balanced plan that would reduce the deficit by making
additional spending cuts, by making modest adjustments
to health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid, and by
reforming our tax code in a way that asks the wealthiest
Americans and biggest corporations to pay
their fair share. (applause) What’s more, the spending cuts
wouldn’t happen so abruptly that they’d be a drag on our economy,
or prevent us from helping small businesses and middle-class
families get back on their feet right away. Now, I realize there are some
in my party who don’t think we should make any changes at
all to Medicare and Medicaid, and I understand their concerns. But here’s the truth: Millions
of Americans rely on Medicare in their retirement. And millions more will
do so in the future. They pay for this benefit
during their working years. They earn it. But with an aging population
and rising health care costs, we are spending too fast
to sustain the program. And if we don’t gradually reform
the system while protecting current beneficiaries, it
won’t be there when future retirees need it. We have to reform
Medicare to strengthen it. (applause) I am also — I’m also well aware
that there are many Republicans who don’t believe we should
raise taxes on those who are most fortunate and
can best afford it. But here is what every American
knows: While most people in this country struggle
to make ends meet, a few of the most affluent
citizens and most profitable corporations enjoy tax
breaks and loopholes that nobody else gets. Right now, Warren Buffett
pays a lower tax rate than his secretary — an outrage
he has asked us to fix. (laughter) We need a tax code where
everyone gets a fair shake and where everybody
pays their fair share. (applause) And by the way, I believe
the vast majority of wealthy Americans and CEOs are willing
to do just that if it helps the economy grow and gets our
fiscal house in order. I’ll also offer ideas to
reform a corporate tax code that stands as a monument
to special interest influence in Washington. By eliminating pages of
loopholes and deductions, we can lower one of the
highest corporate tax rates in the world. (applause) Our tax code should not give
an advantage to companies that can afford the
best-connected lobbyists. It should give an advantage to
companies that invest and create jobs right here in the
United States of America. (applause) So we can reduce this
deficit, pay down our debt, and pay for this jobs
plan in the process. But in order to do this,
we have to decide what our priorities are. We have to ask ourselves,
“What’s the best way to grow the economy and create jobs?” Should we keep tax
loopholes for oil companies? Or should we use that money to
give small business owners a tax credit when they
hire new workers? Because we can’t
afford to do both. Should we keep tax breaks for
millionaires and billionaires? Or should we put teachers back
to work so our kids can graduate ready for college and good jobs? (applause) Right now, we can’t
afford to do both. This isn’t political grandstanding. This isn’t class warfare. This is simple math. (laughter) This is simple math. These are real choices. These are real choices
that we’ve got to make. And I’m pretty sure I know what
most Americans would choose. It’s not even close. And it’s time for us to do
what’s right for our future. (applause) Now, the American Jobs Act
answers the urgent need to create jobs right away. But we can’t stop there. As I’ve argued since
I ran for this office, we have to look beyond the
immediate crisis and start building an economy that
lasts into the future — an economy that creates good,
middle-class jobs that pay well and offer security. We now live in a world where
technology has made it possible for companies to take
their business anywhere. If we want them to start here
and stay here and hire here, we have to be able to out-build
and out-educate and out-innovate every other country on Earth. (applause) And this task of making America
more competitive for the long haul, that’s a
job for all of us. For government and
for private companies. For states and for local
communities — and for every American citizen. All of us will have
to up our game. All of us will have to change
the way we do business. My administration can and will
take some steps to improve our competitiveness on our own. For example, if you’re a small
business owner who has a contract with the
federal government, we’re going to make sure
you get paid a lot faster than you do right now. (applause) We’re also planning to cut away
the red tape that prevents too many rapidly growing startup
companies from raising capital and going public. And to help responsible
homeowners, we’re going to work with federal
housing agencies to help more people refinance their mortgages
at interest rates that are now near 4 percent. That’s a step — (applause) — I know you guys
must be for this, because that’s a step that
can put more than $2,000 a year in a family’s pocket,
and give a lift to an economy still burdened by the
drop in housing prices. So, some things we
can do on our own. Other steps will require
congressional action. Today you passed reform that
will speed up the outdated patent process, so that
entrepreneurs can turn a new idea into a new business
as quickly as possible. That’s the kind
of action we need. Now it’s time to clear the way
for a series of trade agreements that would make it easier for
American companies to sell their products in Panama and Colombia
and South Korea — while also helping the workers whose
jobs have been affected by global competition. (applause) If Americans can buy
Kias and Hyundais, I want to see folks in South
Korea driving Fords and Chevys and Chryslers. (applause) I want to see more products sold
around the world stamped with the three proud words:
“Made in America.” That’s what we need to get done. (applause) And on all of our efforts to
strengthen competitiveness, we need to look for ways
to work side by side with America’s businesses. That’s why I’ve brought together
a Jobs Council of leaders from different industries who are
developing a wide range of new ideas to help companies
grow and create jobs. Already, we’ve mobilized
business leaders to train 10,000 American engineers a
year, by providing company internships and training. Other businesses are covering
tuition for workers who learn new skills at
community colleges. And we’re going to make sure the
next generation of manufacturing takes root not in China or
Europe, but right here, in the United States of America. (applause) If we provide the
right incentives, the right support — and if we
make sure our trading partners play by the rules — we can be
the ones to build everything from fuel-efficient cars
to advanced biofuels to semiconductors that we
sell all around the world. That’s how America can
be number one again. And that’s how America
will be number one again. (applause) Now, I realize that some of you
have a different theory on how to grow the economy. Some of you sincerely believe
that the only solution to our economic challenges is to simply
cut most government spending and eliminate most
government regulations. (applause) Well, I agree that we can’t
afford wasteful spending, and I’ll work with you, with
Congress, to root it out. And I agree that there are some
rules and regulations that do put an unnecessary burden on
businesses at a time when they can least afford it. (applause) That’s why I ordered a review
of all government regulations. So far, we’ve identified
over 500 reforms, which will save billions of
dollars over the next few years. (applause) We should have no more
regulation than the health, safety and security of the
American people require. Every rule should meet
that common-sense test. (applause) But what we can’t do — what
I will not do — is let this economic crisis be used as an
excuse to wipe out the basic protections that Americans
have counted on for decades. (applause) I reject the idea that we need
to ask people to choose between their jobs and their safety. I reject the argument that
says for the economy to grow, we have to roll back protections
that ban hidden fees by credit card companies, or rules that
keep our kids from being exposed to mercury, or laws that prevent
the health insurance industry from shortchanging patients. I reject the idea that we
have to strip away collective bargaining rights to
compete in a global economy. (applause) We shouldn’t be in a
race to the bottom, where we try to offer the
cheapest labor and the worst pollution standards. America should be in
a race to the top. And I believe we
can win that race. (applause) In fact, this larger notion
that the only thing we can do to restore prosperity is
just dismantle government, refund everybody’s money, and
let everyone write their own rules, and tell everyone
they’re on their own — that’s not who we are. That’s not the story of America. Yes, we are rugged individualists. Yes, we are strong
and self-reliant. And it has been the drive and
initiative of our workers and entrepreneurs that has made this
economy the engine and the envy of the world. But there’s always been another
thread running throughout our history — a belief that
we’re all connected, and that there are some things
we can only do together, as a nation. We all remember Abraham
Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party. But in the middle
of a civil war, he was also a leader who looked
to the future — a Republican President who mobilized
government to build the Transcontinental Railroad — (applause) — launch the National
Academy of Sciences, set up the first
land grant colleges. (applause) And leaders of both parties have
followed the example he set. Ask yourselves — where would we
be right now if the people who sat here before us decided
not to build our highways, not to build our bridges,
our dams, our airports? What would this country be like
if we had chosen not to spend money on public high schools,
or research universities, or community colleges? Millions of returning heroes,
including my grandfather, had the opportunity to go to
school because of the G.I. Bill. Where would we be if they
hadn’t had that chance? (applause) How many jobs would it have cost
us if past Congresses decided not to support the basic
research that led to the Internet and the computer chip? What kind of country would this
be if this chamber had voted down Social Security or Medicare
just because it violated some rigid idea about what government
could or could not do? (applause) How many Americans would
have suffered as a result? No single individual built
America on their own. We built it together. We have been, and always will
be, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty
and justice for all; a nation with responsibilities
to ourselves and with responsibilities to one another. And members of Congress,
it is time for us to meet our responsibilities. (applause) Every proposal I’ve laid out
tonight is the kind that’s been supported by Democrats
and Republicans in the past. Every proposal I’ve laid out
tonight will be paid for. And every proposal is designed
to meet the urgent needs of our people and our communities. Now, I know there’s been a lot
of skepticism about whether the politics of the moment will
allow us to pass this jobs plan — or any jobs plan. Already, we’re seeing the same
old press releases and tweets flying back and forth. Already, the media has
proclaimed that it’s impossible to bridge our differences. And maybe some of you have
decided that those differences are so great that we can only
resolve them at the ballot box. But know this: The next
election is 14 months away. And the people who sent us here
— the people who hired us to work for them — they don’t have
the luxury of waiting 14 months. (applause) Some of them are living week
to week, paycheck to paycheck, even day to day. They need help, and
they need it now. I don’t pretend that this plan
will solve all our problems. It should not be,
nor will it be, the last plan of
action we propose. What’s guided us from the start
of this crisis hasn’t been the search for a silver bullet. It’s been a commitment to stay
at it — to be persistent — to keep trying every
new idea that works, and listen to every
good proposal, no matter which party
comes up with it. Regardless of the arguments
we’ve had in the past, regardless of the arguments
we will have in the future, this plan is the right
thing to do right now. You should pass it. And I intend to take that
message to every corner of this country. (applause) And I ask — I ask every
American who agrees to lift your voice: Tell the people who
are gathered here tonight that you want action now. Tell Washington that doing
nothing is not an option. Remind us that if we act as
one nation and one people, we have it within our power
to meet this challenge. President Kennedy once said,
“Our problems are man-made — therefore they can
be solved by man. And man can be as
big as he wants.” These are difficult
years for our country. But we are Americans. We are tougher than
the times we live in, and we are bigger than
our politics have been. So let’s meet the moment. Let’s get to work, and let’s
show the world once again why the United States of
America remains the greatest nation on Earth. (applause) Thank you very much. God bless you, and God bless
the United States of America. (applause)

  1. @jepst41 – yeah i know because he was handed a great economy with no issues whatsoever to it right? wow how can this nut case ruin a perfect economy? lol NOT!

  2. @wholly33 The economy collapsed because of the housing bubble, caused by liberal policies at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Every time Bush made calls for reform, the left screamed "RACISM!!!" By the time there were problems, Democrats had both houses of congress. Barney Frank, July 14, 2008: "I think this is a case where Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are fundamentally sound." Bush brought the country back after 9/11. Obama has made things worse.

  3. @jepst41 – oh I am so sorry I got it so incorrect…. I completely forget the Republicans bare no responsibility whatsoever on the Economy, silly me how could I forget its the Democrats lol Bush had no faults, in fact he had nothing whatsoever to do with economy being in such grave conditions. Oh and that war I served in, that that was the Democrats fault for sending me and it was their fault because it contributed to our failed economy. Silly me

  4. @wholly33 I post facts. You post sarcasm. Liberalism caused the problems. The Republicans bear responsibility for when they acted like liberals. Democrats are liberals. Democrats bear FAR FAR FAR more responsibility than Republicans.

  5. @jepst41 – oh boy another freshmen lol when BUSH got us into our SECOND EXPENSIVE WAR, I was an extreme Conservative and I use to think like you until I woke up and smelled the coffee. Please do not be a slave minded idiot to Politics, because you are surely showing signs of it. I am now an independent but more right of center. So lets be real.. Bush handed a shit bag economy with two costly wars to Obama and Obama hasn't figured out how to fix it. Dems and Repubs are both at fault!

  6. Freshman??? LOL!!! Try PhD in Statistics & Mathematics. I fault Bush for not having the guts to stand up to the left. Obama doesn't know how to fix the problem because he doesn't understand what caused it. A problem caused by liberalism can't be solved with more liberalism.

  7. @jepst41 Yeah, the banks were too liberal handing out money, and Bush was too liberal with the amount of money he invested in Iraq and Afghanistan. Liberalism

  8. @jepst41 I understand that the housing bubble, one of the main causes of the current recession, was the result of sub-prime lending. I'm no expert in economics, so I can't speak intelligently on the details. I do however understand that much of this mess was created by private businesses such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lending to people way beyond their means and passing the risk on to investors.

  9. @AymanRSaleh Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were the reason for the housing bubble. Mortgage companies and banks give out mortgages, then sell them to the secondary market. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac dictate what kind of loans are given out. And they were run by LIBERALS!!!! Franklin Rains and Jamie Gorellic!!! Look it up! This three yeas of economic downturn can be placed directly and inarguably at the feet of the political left!

  10. @teabaggersblow Fucktard, you have absolutely no idea how the secondary market works. Banks and mortgage companies hand out mortgages, then Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginny Mae buy them. The banks service them for 2% of the income. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac determine what mortgages are going to be given out. Educate yourself so you don't make yourself look like such an idiot.

  11. Look at it like this. Before Obama's last election he made many promises to the people. He lied on every single promise. He said he would bring the troops home from Iraq, NOPE. Cutting Military spending alone would be an excessive amount of help for the economy. Lie after Lie Obama will brainwash you, not me though. There is always a catch when it comes to Obama.

  12. funny how everyone blames obama for americas problems dont forget it was wanker bush that started the war and got usa in trillions of dollars of debt some people have a short memory go obama

  13. We presently occupy Wall St.Are beginning to occupy the 12 Federal Reserves,and all plan to "do the right thing" as you say.We plan to occupy the White House next and take our country back.It is our right and duty to do so,when government has turned as corrupt as your mob rule has has done to "we the people".We're sick of your "Mob Rule",and "Crony Facism".

  14. This is a damn stimulus in sheeps clothing. Obama is bought and paid for by the 1%. Perry, Bachmann, Romney, Obama, Cain, Santorum and Gingrich. Corporations throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks.

    Ron Paul, the only voice of the people.

  15. Mr. President, Thank you for being a great President. It is under your leadership that I was hired for a job and begin tomorrow. I have been awarded with a nice job, I am making it in America, and I did see the decks stacked against me…but I was did not give up-it took an act on my part, and I would be willing to share this information with others.
    As a matter of fact, I was asked if I had a college degree and I was able to say yes. President Obama, you will get my vote 2012!!

  16. @vannidj1

    That is right!! I agree with you. He is a great President. First of all, I will say "he gets my vote in 2010"
    He wants America to prosper. Republicans want us to poorer. America has lots of land that he wants to fill. I have been out of work for 2 years, but I have also relied on Food Stamps and other resources, but I start a new job tomorrow, and I am excited. President saved my butt / food stamps…Republicans want to cut out Gov. assists. like that. Go OBAMA!!!!

  17. GO OBAMA!! I was just hired for a new job. Thank you President for saving my butt!

    It is working Mr. President. thank you!!

  18. @Brotherhood285

    You really think so? You cannot give up. Look! Honestly, I had thought about going to McDonalds they pay good and have benefits…..but from what I hear it is getting harder to get on at a McDonalds, but it may not be..check into it. Actually, I am happy that I will be saving to also start my own business, and you could do the same. We have to keep busy. I put in 80 application at one business, had 2 interviews…no hire….then kept on applying…and finally, got hired!

  19. You guys, who don't appreciate Obama, would deserve Berlusconi. Do you want to excange our Presidents for a couple of years?

  20. @MrHugorocks name a single thing that Obama has done good for the US Economy! 9% unemployment actual 12% unemployment, 15 trillion in debt, continued the wars and started new wars i.e Libya, so unless you consider putting america at the brink of financial ruin having done good I'm finding it difficult finding the good he has done!

  21. @tambat9 name a single reason why I should be thankful Obama is President? 9% unemployment actual 12% unemployment, 15 trillion in debt, continued the wars and started new wars i.e Libya, has proposed raising taxes has no plan to reduce debt! so unless you consider putting america at the brink of financial ruin as a reason to be thankful, then i fail to find any reason to be grateful for what he has done.

  22. @CesarManiaX the Jobs act will not create a single job or prevent company's from outsourcing their work, socialism doesn't work never has it never will it only creates more poverty and disparity, Stop supporting Obama and those like him, leave the dark side of the force, and join the good side like Ron Paul, Herman Cain and the conservatives who want to do away with the progressive tax system and end regressive regulations and let market capitalism repair the damage to the economy.

  23. @spquinn14 the republicans still do not have the power to fix the recession congress is still controlled by the democrats &Obama has veto power! the jobs bill is just another spending spree no different than the trillion dollar stimulus bill that also has not created a single job.Obama can make any assertions he wants he said that if they passed the stimulus unemployment would not go above 8% and they have lied about the actual unemployment rate by no longer counting the jobs that once existed.

  24. @ABGAN100 the unemployment rate is calculated by the total number of available jobs. in 2009 there were 2 million more jobs available than their are today if the were to be added into the unemployment calculation we would be at 12% unemployment!

  25. @spquinn14 that has to be the single most stupid statement I've yet to hear! Obama has lied about so many things he qualify's as habitual liar. the purpose of a bill and the result of a bill are not always the same and this bill would not result in job creation. business do no hire just because there is a tax credit in hiring. a payroll tax cut would stimulate job growth but Obama is currently threatening to Veto it! because of the keystone pipeline that would create thousands of jobs.

  26. @spquinn14 further more the jobs bill is filled with so many regulations that it would kill countless jobs, destroying far more jobs then a payroll tax cut would create. and it is filled with government pension bailouts for blue states a colossal waist of money that will only result in increasing the national debt far beyond the current 15 trillion dollars.

  27. @Bronzecop I HATE demoKKKraps!!! I am so conservative it is off the scale. I hate that colored boy in the W.H. demonKKKraps is where the KKK came from. Only jobs KKKraps create are GOVERNMENT JOBS. I think I was misunderstood.

  28. @Bronzecop Yeah, another LIBERAL STRAWMAN ARGUEMENT. Gov't hires overwhelmingly GOV'T. employees, PINHEAD.RAISING TAXES DETROYS JOBS. When the gov't. gets involved iin PRIVATE industry it spends & wastes too much money cuz it does NOT have to be COMPETITIVE like the PRIVATE industry does. The KKK came from the demoKKKraps.

  29. @spquinn14 NONE of the laws this BIGOTED presidnet has made were any good for America. They would destroy America. He is a COMPLETE IDIOT & has proven so time after time. I am glad Republicans are NOT PASSING any of this RACIST SOCIALIST COMPULSIVE LIAR put forward. OCCUPY ANARCHISTS are protesting cuz they WANT TO BE FREE-LOADERS, OBEY NO LAWS & ARE SOCIALIST MARXISTS IDIOTS. Anyone with a job & half a brain knows these PUNKS are worthless.

  30. @spquinn14 You and your dumb parents are LEFT WING BRAINWASHED mental midgets. You all watch PROPAGANDA & DO YOUR DUMB PARENTS HAVE AS A FOUL mouth as you do?
