  • Editorial: 'Jobs Bill' Is About Politics, Not Jobs

    Obamanomics: Government spending failed on jobs, so the president has shifted to Plan T: taxes, including limiting mortgage interest and other deductions — plus still more spending. His unlikely-to-pass plan is 100% politics. When an angry Barack Obama repeatedly demanded at a joint session of Congress last week that lawmakers "pass this jobs bill," he knew their answer would be no. But at the time, no one outside the White House knew the game the president was playing. In one of the most deceitful ploys ever attempted against the American people, President Obama kept it to himself that he was...

  • Democrat Maxine Waters: “We Need a Jobs Program of a Trillion Dollar or More”

    She’s a true democrat. We all know the democrat solution to every problem is to spend more taxpayer dollars. Rep. Maxine Waters believes we need to blow another trillion dollars to jump-start the economy. The far left politician was on Meet the Press this morning, via The Right Scoop:
  • Jobs bill not likely to create many jobs (From MSNBC???)

    WASHINGTON - It's a bipartisan jobs bill that would hand President Barack Obama a badly needed political victory and placate Republicans with tax cuts at the same time. But it has a problem: It won't create many jobs. Even the Obama administration acknowledges the legislation's centerpiece — a tax cut for businesses that hire unemployed workers — would work only on the margins.
  • Pelosi Refuses to Call New Spending Another Stimulus Package

    Roll Call ^ | 10/21/2009 | Steven T. Dennis
    It looks like another stimulus package. It sounds like a stimulus package. It spends like a stimulus package. Her economic advisers are even calling it another stimulus. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) insists her plans for a host of new spending is not a stimulus package. “That’s not what we’re doing,” Pelosi said Wednesday when asked if there would be a “Stimulus Two.” Instead, the new spending and tax cuts will move in a series of bills, she said, instead of one big bill. “We do not have a plan for an additional stimulus package, but we do have plans...

    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is considering steps to ease the burdens of laid-off workers, including possible extensions of unemployment and health benefits, officials said Saturday. The administration has stopped short of calling for a second economic stimulus package to augment the $787 billion measure approved this year. But with the jobless rate continuing to climb, President Barack Obama said Saturday he is exploring "additional options to promote job creation."
  • Dem Senator: Second Stimulus ‘Probably Needed’

    ABC ^ | 7/6/09 | Ricky Klein
    ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: As job losses mount, Democrats are growing impatient about the impact of the massive stimulus package passed earlier this year, with talk beginning on Capitol Hill about a possible second stimulus bill. Today on ABCNews.com’s “Top Line,” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said a second stimulus is “probably needed,” and predicted that Congress is likely to act before the end of the year to inject even more federal dollars into the economy. Said Whitehouse: “I think that it is probably needed. We’re going to need to have some further discussion. It will probably take place towards...
  • Dems Start Drafting 'Stimulus 2: The Sequel'; Vitter-Bishop Propose No-Cost Stimulus

    Republicans introduced in both the House and the Senate yesterday a bill entitled the No Cost Stimulus Act of 2009. This breathtakingly simple energy stimulus bill introduced by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) and Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) would accelerate offshore on the Outer Continental Shelf and in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge and force the government to streamline the environmental and regulatory burdens that could otherwise block energy development for years. At a press conference yesterday, Vitter and Bishop explained that this bill would be a literal “threefer”: it creates tens of thousands of jobs, helps reduce dependency on foreign...

    It seems like just yesterday that I was wondering if The One had miscalculated by expecting a bailout-weary public to support more than one gargantuan stimulus bill. Oh right — it was yesterday. Remember to emphasize confidence when you’re pitching this next one, Nancy. Just 27% of voters nationwide favor passage of a second economic stimulus package. The latest Rasmussen Reports nationwide telephone survey found that 55% are opposed and 19% are not sure. Despite the public opposition, 74% say it’s likely that Congress will try to pass another stimulus plan before the year is out. That figure includes 45%...

    Washington Times ^ | Feb 24, 2009 | David R. Sands and Christina Bellantoni
    President Obama on Monday vowed to reel in wasteful Washington spending and blasted deceptive "accounting tricks" used by the Bush administration to fund the Iraq war even as House Democrats released a $410 billion stopgap spending bill studded with thousands of pork-barrel projects. The 1,000-plus-page spending bill provides a fat target for deficit hawks. It includes hundreds of pages of earmarks - pet spending projects inserted by lawmakers, ranging from $185,000 for coral reef research and preservation in Maui County, Hawaii, to $55,000 in meteorological equipment for Pierce College in Woodland Hills, Calif., to $9.9 million for science enhancement at...

    Here we go again! House Republicans are bracing for another onslaught of out-of-control Democrat-authored spending as the omnibus bill is expected to hit the floor of the House as early as next week. And it’ll be yet another spending bill House Republicans and the American people have not yet been allowed to see and the Democrats haven’t even bothered to read. As if the $1.2 trillion Democrats spent on “stimulus” last week wasn’t enough of a disaster, this colossal bill encompasses the remaining nine appropriations bills for fiscal year 2009 sloughed off by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). House minority...
