This bill is joke with so many poison pills daring the GOP the vote it down. The GOP should not even take it up.
I'm not sure I follow the quote from your reply. Wasn't that quote what the Libyan leader?
Canada has the best healthcare system in the world. You just have to die first.
Where are the jackasses on our side screaming this in front of a camera and microphone? If this is true, it’s a no brainer to win the public on examples, holding such a document...I’d suspect it isn’t 25000 pages but rather 25000 words. I hope we aren’t stupid enough to make such a mistake. Scream about paint removal being no way having to do with jobs, but stealing freedom. Another useful line is, “We are not China, we have freedom”.
Hmmm... you are quite right. Apparently Control-c didn't work, it pasted the prior copy, and I didn't check because the formatting looked OK. I was responding to the poster's assertion that the lower middle class doesn't pay taxes; they certainly do. Thanks, I'll fix it.
You mean the Monday afternoon Jobsageddon speech? Or the last Thursday evening Jobsageddon speech?
WTH was that thin pamphlet Obama waved at the camera when giving his Jobsageddon speech?
OK, There were two things here. First, there is the American Jobs Act which is what you saw The Won waving around yesterday. That's the bill he told Congress last Thursday that they must pass immediately. Apparently, he was trying to go beyond Pelosi's "You have to pass the bill so we can see what's in it." The new Democrat plan is, "You have to pass the bill so we can write it." That's what last Thursday's speech sounded like to me.
Then, there's regulations. Regulations don't get written until after the law has been passed and is being implemented. There are no regulations from the "American Jobs Act" yet because the act hasn't been passed yet and signed into law by Obama.
I think, the speed reader on Cavuto today was reading >25,000 pages of regulations from something else. Perhaps from the Health Care law, or perhaps from a single month (that's about right for this administration for a "normal" month).
Still, fox is getting focused these days on some of the regulations that are killing business in this country.
I'll take the opportunity to plug my idea on this. I've already sent this to my (RINO Establishement) Republican Congress Critter. I suggest others should pass this up to their congres critters as well:
My proposal would have to be passed by Congress and signed by a President. It has zero chance of actually becoming law, but here it is:
That's really the only way we will be freed from these regulations.
Regulations are not Laws ActNo regulation proposed by the Executive Branch or any agency thereof shall have the force of law until it is passed by a majority of both houses of Congress and signed into law by the President.
All regulations currently documented in the "Code of Federal Regulations" will sunset 5 years after the passage of this act, unless those regulations are presented to Congress and passed by a majority in both houses of the Congress and signed into law by the President.
The Constitution states All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. For many years, the Executive branch has been exercising legislative powers through regulations and subjecting the people of this country to new laws with no accountability to the voters. This is the heart of the problem.
My proposal would start to undo that damage and address the fundamental threat to our liberty from executive regulations.
Republicans would rather have the political issue and nibble back at the regulations a few at a time than address the real issue. Besides, when they get control of the Congress and the Presidency, Republicans will use "their turn" to further their favorite regulations and abuse and usurp powers not granted to the executive in the Constitution. They won't stop it because they want the power when they get "their turn."
How can this be if middle class families dont pay any tax? Or is he labeling someone making $250,000.00 a year middle class?
Here is what I said:
Yes they do. The average middle class family pays Social Security taxes at a far higher effective rate than do the wealthy.
With my apologies to the forum.
A lot of posters here don't seem to realize that the lower middle class often pays a HIGHER rate of tax when it comes to disposable income. Much of it is hidden in the products they buy, sales taxes, property taxes on their rental housing, and of course Social Security, which is capped for upper income earners. Meanwhile, said higher income earners often benefit from tax-exempt income, both bennies and luxuries footed by their employers or from capital gains, or tax-exempt investment income.
One can argue all one wants about how the lower middle class and poor pay little to no INCOME taxes, but to say that they don't pay taxes at all is just plain wrong, it alienates people we should be attracting, and it is distorting the facts for political purposes.
I just read that summary at the link you posted. I need to get a nausea medication and go lay down now.
I read through it felt the same way.
bump for later links and clarity.
Sounds like typical liberal think. Unintended consequences would be to certify that no unemployed person gets an interview for fear of legal action. Friggn' BRILLIANT !!
I so hope that's in the proposal.....good fodder for democratic idiocy.
WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!!
Look at the average dem - they've got a few smart people, their 'stars' but a level or two down from that and they're not a very bright group. I think someone writes this stuff for them and they're thankful to have something - anything that makes them look like they know what they're doing..
The only link on the entire web is this thread and this
So it is real?You can’t make this crap up.No wonder Obama wants this rushed.Obama is slick and needs impeached now.
