'Pass this bill,' the crowd chants
Politico44 ^ | 09/13/11 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 09/13/2011 2:18:21 PM PDT by ColdOne

The bill, which Obama held up toward the beginning of his speech, will pass if “we finally get our act together in Washington, if we can get folks in that city to stop worrying about their jobs and start worrying about your jobs,” he said.

The ideas he’s proposed, he said, are “paid for” and have gotten bipartisan support in the past.

I see in this "bill" it taxes people who own jets. Gives a bunch of new title jobs in government.

He could just as easily have had them chant “Give us your money.”

For all the urgency, no Dem has stepped forward to introduce this bill in the House of Representatives.

I thought they were chanting.

“Reject this swill!”

I am sure they weren’t prompted to chant that. /sarc

What did they get? A box lunch or a pack of butts?

The crowd was mostly high school kids, their parents, and teachers. Reading thru the facebook postings of the four local news stations that covered his speech today, Obama doesn't have a chance in 2012. They are trying their best to sell him, but it's just not working.

Its paid for by raising taxes over ten years, Obama would get the money now. Another scam to drown us in debt.

The bill has not been filed yet.

It doesn't matter. They're all bad ideas. We don't need more government union employees to support. The idea is to cut them - not hire them.

We need private sector jobs where people actually produce something rather than government union members who do nothing but gouge on tax slave supported life long freebies.

Oboma just doesn't get it. He has no idea what he's doing. He's a blithering idiot who doesn't belong in a position of authority.( Maybe he should be given a janitor position - that is if the janitors union believes he's qualified)

This clown informs the country that he has come up with a bill to save our economy that’s all paid for.

He doesn’t have a bill in writing, informs us a week later he’s going to tax us to death and then goes around the country on a campaign tour to cram it down our throats like healthcare.

How stupid does he think we are?

The multimillion dollar yachts like John Kerrys, or multimillion dollar mansions like Nancy Pelosis, won't be taxed. Too many wealthy democrat politicians own the same things.
Only those who work for a living should be enslaved. Otherwise, the freeloaders wouldn't vote to keep the wealthy democrat politicians in their power and luxury.

The tax payers are getting poorer and poorer - while the democrat politicians get richer and richer.

This dumb ass president. If he wanted it passed he would have presented how he was going to pay for it first.

The GOP must expose everything that’s in this ‘bill’ to the light of day.
Show everyone what a piece of pork fat this really is.
New taxes, new spending, no jobs......................

That is interesting.
NO dimrat politician other than kenya boy is pushing for this. Where is Pelosi and Reid? Where are all the radical marxist dim reps? Why are they not pushing this?

Just read Alinski's books. His goal was to organize the poor to destroy the middle class. He comes right out and admits it. The radical lefts agenda is right in front of every ones face.

Saul Alinski referred to the middle class as "The enemy." According to him, they used most of the earths resources, had the large political numbers to win elections, and had all the money, when totaled together. The object is to force the middle class into government dependencecy, so the democrats remain in power forever once the middle class gets addicted to the free government manna. Onoma is doing just that. This has nothing to do with "the rich." They'll be the target later.

Because it's a rehash. Oboma has no real plan. He hasn't sent anyone a bill. The democrats don't want to get stained by this trick again, because they'll get blamed for it. He has no paper trail - he's voting "present" and expecting the democrats in the house and senate to do the dirty work for him.
Oboma isn't doing them any favors.

The only ones who think this bill deserves to be passed are the Obama kool-aid drinkers and they are clueless, anyway.

I think the House Republicans should call a vote on the bill tomorrow.

Then when they discover that no bill exists, they should demand a joint session at the White house, so that they can make a speech to the President about the missing bill.
