Graham asks for bipartisan help on jobs (RINO calls for GOP, Obama to pass amnesty legislation)
The Charlotte Observer ^ | 2011-08-12 | April Bethea

Posted on 08/12/2011 3:06:45 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

ROCK HILL, SC - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said the recent downgrade of the country's bond rating by Standard & Poor's is a "wake-up call" for national leaders to keep looking for ways to boost the economy and spur job creation.

The S.C. Republican also said it's important for bipartisan talks on those issues, saying neither political party alone can solve the major problems facing the country.

Graham spoke Thursday before more than 50 attendees of a luncheon held by the Rock Hill Rotary club. His talk focused primarily on the economy, military efforts in the Middle East and immigration reform.

(snip)

He addressed immigration, calling again for the country to secure its border with Mexico. Otherwise, he said, terrorists might find a way to take advantage of the situation.

He said the current undocumented immigrants should be given a chance to become legal, including paying a fine, learning English and "going to the back of the line" if they want the chance to become citizens.

Buy a clue Senator!!!

The American job machine doesn’t start until someone in DC grabs a history text and starts reading about Warren Harding...and acting on it.

Warren Harding figured it out in 1920...

Congress and the Executive Branch have lots to do.

So far they’re not doin’ it right..

Its been done before..

Harding cut the government’s budget nearly in half between 1920 and 1922. The rest of Harding’s approach was equally laissez-faire. Tax rates were slashed for all income groups. The national debt was reduced by one-third. The Federal Reserve’s activity, moreover, was hardly noticeable. As one economic historian puts it, “Despite the severity of the contraction, the Fed did not move to use its powers to turn the money supply around and fight the contraction.” 2 By the late summer of 1921, signs of recovery were already visible. The following year, unemployment was back down to 6.7 percent and was only 2.4 percent by 1923.

http://www.firstprinciplesjournal.com/articles.aspx?article=1319&loc=r

BTW..ole Warren ALSO fixed immigration...

Mr. Harding signed into law the Emergency Quota Act[3] which sought to control immigration following World War I and preserve the distinctive American culture by ensuring the majority of immigrants came from the historically compatible cultures of Northern Europe. This law aimed to bring wages of hard working Americans under control by limiting immigration to 3% of the 1910 census. It was followed on by a similar act in 1924, after Mr. Harding’s death.[4]

A Warren Harding prescription...if filled ...would ignite the afterburners on the US job machine and the economy. However DC would have to yield on a tremendous amount of power. Our job as We the People...is to persuade them of the “utility” ..shall we say..of doing so. In all probability the same minds that made the mess...aren’t capable of the solution however.

BTW any takers that ‘Bammy couldn’t even tell you that Warren Harding was one of his predecessors in office?

Even more telling about what our betters in the RinoCracy think of a Constitutional President..

Lindsey still doesn’t get it. They don’t want to be U.S. citizens. If they did, they’d learn to speak English and get rid of the Mexican flag license plates. They want money to send back “home”. Geeesh! What a dork! Politicians are so DUMB! The boys just don’t know how to focus and pay attention.

The fastest way to increase wages and jobs for those without college educations would be to a) eject the illegals and b) prevent re-entry.

Labor compensation is about supply and demand. Wages aren’t about to go up when there are seven to nine people standing in line for a job. If the first applicant doesn’t take the job for the pay being offered, there are a bunch of people the employer can ask who probably will take the wage.

What a great post. Have to admit, I knew little about THAT history - ‘funny’ how the public schools gloss over things like this, but they spend three weeks praising FDR!

Graham said he is not against raising revenues but doesn't think it needs to come through tax rate increases. He called for streamlining the corporate tax code, cutting some deductions and exemptions,

Translation: "I don't think we need tax increases. I call for increasing taxes instead."

Thank you. The answers to all our problems lay in front of us..presented by previously great Americans who have preceded us.

Its only a matter of courage, common sense, perseverance and time before free people elect yet another such leader.

Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals

Most of the GOP Presidential hopefuls have been avoiding this hot button issue. I frankly don’t trust any of them to do what is necessary to protect US borders. The temptation of corporate money and the illusion that the GOP can capture Latino votes by turning a blind eye to the illegals, is just too alluring to those seeking enough funds to be competitive in the primaries.

Is lindsey Grahm almost certainly a closeted homosexual?

IMHO, yes.

Is the picture Lindsey’s gay lover?

No, it’s a random picture from the internet.
