Skip to comments.Obama assails GOP, promotes new jobs program (low odds it'll ever be come law anytime soon)

MILWAUKEE A combative President Barack Obama rolled out a long-term jobs program Monday that will exceed $50 billion to rebuild roads, railways and runways, and coupled it with a blunt campaign-season assault on Republicans for causing Americans' hard economic times.
GOP leaders instantly assailed Obama's proposal, which is also likely to be met with reluctance by many Democrats to approve additional spending and higher federal deficits just weeks before elections that will determine control of Congress.
That means the plan has low odds of becoming law this year. Administration officials said that even quick congressional approval would not produce jobs until sometime next year, raising questions about what, if any, pre-election impact it would have beyond showing job-hungry voters that the White House is trying to ease unemployment.

Keep digging, Stroker. Keep digging.
False promises from a false messiah, corrupt fruit from a corrupted tree.
“That means the plan has low odds of becoming law this year”.
HAHA - And not a snowballs chance in Hell of becoming law after the Nov midterms.
Fired up...ready to go? (leave office?)
Paving roads and laying tracks may put some people to work for a short term, but it will not produce one dimes worth of marketable merchandise or have any effect on the real infrastructure of our country; the small businesses of America!
We need an immediate(40%)tariff on imported goods and services, and a loss of tax incentives to take manufacturing jobs to third world countries.

I think when history is written about this Administration -
SHOVEL READY says it all.
Shovel the sh$% America....
Geez, how about let's let the recovery run its course? Maybe keep the tax rates the same for now at least?
0bama mocked those of us who said this was a worse than usual dive in the business cycle. As if there is no business cycle. Of course that's because he has no idea what he's talking about WRT economics, and relies on commies/Keynesians (similar, I know) for advice.

That little white girl is clearly a racist.
“We’ll get back with ya AFTER the November elections there, AnnointedIdiot, kkthx.” =.=
Someone speculated on another thread that this might be disinformation. Obama is putting this idiot program forward so Dem congresscritters can vote it down, and then tell their voters that they are fiscally responsible.
Could be, but I’m not sure how well that will work. Their opponents can point out that they already voted for a trillion dollars worth of stimulus, and that if re-elected they’ll probably do it again.
Of course if it is such a good idea, why didn't you put this in place with the STIMULUS Bill? Gee, what an idea!
The last crap sandwich you served up was so tasty Mr. President, I’m sure we all would love another one.
