Since when do citizens from one state have to pay for teachers, police, and firefighters in other states?? These positions are covered by city, county, and/or state dollars. This should not be responsibility of federal government...
I believe the primary motivation is to get more union money in democratic campaign coffers.
I don’t know if anyone else has said it but Michele Bachmann has been pretty vocal about giving education money and control back to the states.
Personally I would go a step further and give it back to the local communities.
Under the Constitution it’s the states that control education.
Every time this Jobs Bill is brought up by a Dem they say it will save 300 thousand teacher’s, fire fighter’s and policemen jobs and no one challenges this number by asking them where? Give me some specifics.
Are we supposed to start RAPING people now? Joe? Hello...
If these jobs bills were really jobs bills, wouldn’t there be funding streams set up to last longer than 11 months? This bill gets Obama through the next election, then these temps are back on the street. With the overhead of Government, he’d be better off to give the same amount of money to a larger group of people and forget the work part (ala unemployment). Obamski is not interested if these jobs are actually productive jobs. He only cares that they are union jobs so he gets the kickback for his campaign, which makes them better than unemployment because of the kickback.
It’s the DNC 2012 campaign money bill...the unions will keep some and pass the rest of our money back to the Democrats for the coming elections.
I am sick of hearing about stupid teachers, as if they are saints or something. Most of them (in the blue states) are overpaid union hacks who get the easiest college degrees in existence, and then indoctrinate kids with liberal bullshit. Our education system is made WORSE when you hire more of these mind-numbed robots for the welfare state. FIRE MORE TEACHERS!
No question, the classrooms around 1915 really educated the students. Not even close now.
The point I was trying to make is that under the Constitution the states are responsible for education, not the federal government. The government usurped the rights of the states ]with the Department of Education, the intrusion into education with billions of dollars and their love affair with the teachers unions.
Joe here. Well, maybe not the “Joe” you were wanting to hear from but a “Joe” nonetheless.
The answer to your question is Yes.
I mean, come on, how else are we going to get all of these Union prop-up bills passed floating the bill for all of the unionized police and firefighters if you aren’t out there raping and stealing and burning things to the ground? Work with me here, okay?
If a few people have to get raped, or robbed, or have their house burned down in order to help the POTUS that’s just the cost of doing business, right?
Crime is DOWN. WTF do we need more “first responders” for?
Did they change the clause in the constitution which requires all revenue and spending bills to originate in the house?
Exactly. This is RICO-level money laundering.
The demoncrats want to send obscene amounts of money to the poor, decimated ranks of public workers unions. Most of that will be contributed back to the demoncrats as campaign contributions. Voila! The taxpayers fund the demoncrat party!
Did you know that there are 160,000 more public workers now than two years ago? And Dingy Harry says that they are the ones in trouble?
Things are getting closer to the breaking point every day.
And probably hundreds of really cute puppies will die in those fires, and thousands more puppies will be horribly burned and disfigured in those fires; and all because the Republicans won’t vote to fund firefighters in the latest bailout scam.
Republicans hate puppies.
the no-more-rape bill failed??!!!
Remember the Good Old Days? Back when Obama, Biden, and the media tried to fool you into believing they were about creating real jobs and economic growth? Now they admit it is about public employees, dare I say SERVANTS? I’m old enough to remember when WE decided how many should be employed. Not the other way around!
To generate more revenue for the state.
