AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain: Help Main Street first (McCain still pushing amnesty, cap and tax)
The Arizona Daily Sun, Flagstaff, Ariz. / Northern Ariz. ^ | 2010-02-17 | Laura Clymer & Larry Hendricks

Posted on 02/17/2010 6:21:39 AM PST by rabscuttle385

The conversation ranged widely.

Topics included job creation, helping Main Street and not Wall Street, overcoming congressional gridlock and reminding residents that he's still the same maverick politician he has been for nearly 24 years.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was in Flagstaff Tuesday on the heels of former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth's announcement to run against McCain in the Republican primary in August. He sat down with the Arizona Daily Sun editorial board before giving remarks at the Coconino County Lincoln Day Dinner at the Radisson Woodlands Hotel.

During the 75-minute question-and-answer session, he reiterated that his positions haven't changed:

He's still a fiscal conservative who opposes "earmarks" or allocations to pet projects that don't go through a competitive process.

He still believes in the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the country's dependence on foreign oil, but that it will require nuclear power to help accomplish it.

He still believes in immigration reform, but it has to include tighter border security up front.

NO BANK TOO BIG TO FAIL

McCain started by saying that Arizona's economy is hurting the worst it has in its history. Jobs are scarce. The housing market is in a tailspin.

While in Flagstaff recently, McCain said he was approached by a local appliance store owner who said that after years of having a good credit line with his bank, the bank took it away.

"Our economy may be recovering in some sense," McCain said. "But you can't convince Main Street of that."

Although he voted for the TARP bank bailout package -- primarily because he thought it would help the housing industry -- McCain said giving money to prop up big banks too big to fail was a mistake.

Instead of lending out the money, the banks used it to shore up their capital reserves while continuing to make large profits and pay big bonuses.

"A lot of people are mad as hell about it, and I don't blame them," McCain said.

Homes went into foreclosure when all it would have taken was a program like the one the federal government instituted during the Great Depression designed to keep people in their homes and pay mortgages they could afford until their financial situations improved.

And stimulus money sent to the states wasn't to create jobs, but rather to save jobs. The biggest job generators -- small business -- would have been able to help the economy with tax credits and decreases in taxes.

BLAME DEMS FOR GRIDLOCK

Editorial board members wanted to know what McCain, as a senior member of the Senate, could do to break the gridlock crippling Congress on major issues like health care.

Acknowledging that major issues are not going to be resolved in the short term, McCain said that the Democratic majority have made "disgraceful" deals involving earmark projects and favorable treatment in the health care reform bill that have been deal-breakers.

Face-to-face negotiations where concessions are made to reach consensus no longer happen, McCain said. As a result, he added, 60 percent of the American public recently polled want Congress to start over on health care reform.

McCain said he is a proponent of reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the use of more nuclear power and recycling nuclear fuel, but the Democrats don't want to discuss the issue. And the multibillion-dollar Yucca Mountain nuclear storage facility has been closed down because of the influence of Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada.

IMMIGRATION REFORM

To keep drug violence in Mexico from spilling into Arizona, McCain stressed the United States must secure its borders.

By doing so, the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country would slow. He added that one "silver lining" to the recession is that the scarcity of jobs has led to many undocumented immigrants going back to their country of origin.

McCain said that a legal, temporary worker program, where people from other countries can come to the U.S. and work for a year before returning home, needs to be developed. And comprehensive immigration reform needs to be addressed by Congress.

Other matters discussed:

-- On reinstating a draft: McCain said that because the military in the U.S. is all volunteer, highly professional, highly equipped and trained, reinstituting a draft of short-term service wouldn't be a good fit.

-- Rio de Flag flood-control project: McCain said he is attempting to have the project formally authorized by the Army Corps of Engineers, thus guaranteeing funding until it is completed rather than the uncertainty of annual earmarked appropriations.

-- International issues: McCain said he supports the offensive currently under way in Afghanistan to rid the entrenched Taliban fighters. He acknowledged casualties will likely be high initially, but the country can't be allowed to serve as a base for attacks against the U.S.

McCain heads to Yuma today to speak at another Lincoln Day Dinner.

“Maverick” - not a reliable conservative voice, by any means. And by pitching amnesty in his home state of Arizona, he is playing with dynamite, and a very unpredictable form of it as well.

Maverick was a sort of crap car when Ford was building them, too.

Cap and Trade and illegal immigration are losers' games.
If not now eventually. It's only a matter of when.

If Americans wanted third world status, they could do it on their own without importing the players.

Worshiping a manufactured crisis is likewise non sensical. "Let's invent a doomsday scenario and spread the misery world-wide."
It just doesn't have a ring to it...

McPain better accept the fact that his ship has come nad went.

Bump.

McCain in his 6-year reelection make-over.

But the “straight talk express” will be back after the election, with the same old “bring them out of the shadows” amnesty, cap and tax, and reaching across the aisle that we are so accustomed to from this fraud.

Definitely an EARMARK project there, Juan, and probably one of the more expensive ones around. Oh, I see, if you can get these big pork projects formally authorized, then you don't have admit they're the same thing as the earmarks you love to harp about on and on and on and on.

Juan and his constant carping and harping about earmarks is one of the most hypocritical political stunts now running.

As bad as Obama is, I still have no doubt that had McCain been elected president, we would have had amnesty passed, we would have a mandatory national health care system, and possibly even the same person appointed to the Supreme Court.

Sen. McCain should start considering representing the people of Arizona some day, and representing their interests, rather than the people and interests of Washington DC and Mexico City.

"immigration reform"

That term is such a lie and should never be used.

They only use it because most people want IMMIGRATION REFORM - ie. an end to immigration of America-hating people who have no intention of assimilation, no illegal immigration, and ENFORCEMENT OF THE EXISTING LAWS!

But that's NOT what they mean!

Rush spoke at length about this yesterday

McCain Goes Hard After Hayworth; Sarah Palin (R) in No-Win Situation

Nothing would please some people of course.

RUSH: You also have to think of something else here, folks. Imagine if Sarah Palin had not endorsed McCain. Can you imagine the media field day with the following: "Oh, wait a minute! Governor Palin, he's good enough to be president -- he's good enough for you to be his vice presidential running mate -- but he's not good enough to be Senator from Arizona?"

That's the same misdirection Juan used to deflect the amnesty issue during the Republican primary debates. So, I'm sure Juan has spent every week the Senate has been in session during 2009 fighting to secure our borders.

Right, Juan? Maybe you can provide us with a list of all the tough border enforcement only legislation you've introduced and/or supported this year? Have you insisted that the real, physical fence required by the Secure Fence Act be completed, Juan?

By endorsing McAmnesty she is saying his pro amnesty, cap and tax policies are acceptable to her.

Bill Bennett is once again supporting McLame in the primary. He claims he doesn’t get involved at the primary level, but he’s making an exception because McLame is so much better than JD. He supported McLame in the presidential primary, too. Bennett, the neo-con, has never impressed me all that much.

You did nothing of the sort. You came back with a completely different issue. You may have copypasted it, but you didn't address the point at all, you just came back with the usual antipragmatic unhelpful attacks.

She's not campaigning for him, she just endorsed the man whose running mate she was on the last presidential ticket. To do otherwise would have been schizophrenic, and given the left bucketloads of ammunition. Get a clue.

Ten percent reported unemployment, 16 percent actual unemployment, and this doofus thinks we need a guest worker program? We should be revoking H1-B and H2-B visas at this point, not expanding immigration meant solely to fill jobs with foreign workers.

I guess we can engage in a little speculation, now that Juan has secured Sarah’s support in his reelection bid. Who will Juan support in the Republican presidental primaries which will begin about a year from now???

Could this be a hint?

http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2009/09/26/john-mccain-holds-a-fund-raiser-for-mitt-romney-not-sarah-palin/

Is loyalty a two way street, or just a one way street for all those who view loyalty as a perfectly acceptable explanation for Sarah’s endorsement of Juan? (Of course, I’m assuming Juan doesn’t decide to take another shot himself.)

Two-faced politicians expose themselves to We The People as being out for themselves and their political careers first; their country comes second.

We The People “must” insist that those we support as our representatives in government have to state publicly and do what is right for the country and our future as a free people. The MSM can go to Hades if they don’t like the truth and if they don’t want to promote what is right for our country and our freedom.

C) "Bucketloads of ammunition" against Palin? So what? Palin is not running for anything. Now I'll say it in caps: PALIN IS NOT RUNNING FOR ANYTHING! But McCain is! And I refuse to excuse or rationalize away the reasons for anyone who supports his candidacy. McCain must go!

Sometimes I just wish ballots had another way to express our wishes, like: “Vote for none of the above”. How they have us by the short hairs, is that 90% of the time both candidates SUCK. We need to find a way to fix that. Lately, most of my votes tend to end up for the one who I dislike the least...which is no way to pick a candidate.

The issue is Palin's willingness to support a socialist sympathizer. That issue I addressed on point. Referring to that fact as an attack is a poor attempt to deflect from Palin's party over principle approach. The pragmatic solution for Palin is also the obvious. Palin needs to stop supporting MacAmnesty over the Conservative candidate.

McCain said that a legal, temporary worker program, where people from other countries can come to the U.S. and work for a year before returning home, needs to be developed.

Sounds good, but would never be enforced, and those here illegally now should return home first and allow those waiting in the proper line for a visa to come here before them.

Will never happen.

Vaya con Shamnesty, Juan McQueeg!
