Speaker Pelosi Is Right: Dems Deserve All the Credit for the Job-Killing, Budget-Busting Agenda That Has Americans Asking “Where are the Jobs?”

The first time we heard Pelosi was whining because the liberal Democrat House and Senate were not getting credit for what they have accomplished since Obama took office, we figured it was a joke. We were wrong -- she meant it. Is Pelosi really that out of touch with Americans that she could even think such a thing? Looks like she is. That is one of the biggest problems with having the Speaker come from such a liberal area of the Country. They don't have a clue about how the rest of us think. San Francisco is one of the most liberal cities in America by far and yet the Democrats elected Pelosi as Speaker? What were they thinking?

Pelosi as Speaker has been a total disaster not to mention has caused the taxpayers a fortune with her party plane from the Air Force. We agree with Republican Leader Boehner that the Dems do deserve all the credit for these bills they have rammed through Congress without reading. Obama says "jump" and Pelosi asks "how high?"

While Dem Leaders Continue to Press Their Failed Economic Policies, GOP Offers Better Solutions in A Pledge To America

Washington (Oct 26)

In a recent interview with Politics Daily, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) bemoaned the lack of credit Democrats have received for what they have done while in control of Congress. According to Speaker Pelosi, “we haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done, but we will take it to the voters and have a Democratic majority to follow through on it…” With members of Speaker Pelosi’s own party working feverishly to distance themselves from the Democratic Leaders’ job-killing agenda, the reality is the American people are giving them the credit they richly deserve for orchestrating the massive, costly power grab that has been going on in Washington. The President and Democrats in Congress have indeed been busy, passing one job-killing bill after another and adding trillions to the nation’s debt despite overwhelming opposition from the American people. Here are just a few of the Democrats’ most significant, if dubious, “accomplishments”:

Defying the Will of the American People by Ramming Through ObamaCare. In March, Democrats passed the job-killing government takeover of health care amid promises that it would lower costs and improve access for millions of Americans....

Enacting a Trillion-Dollar ‘Stimulus’ That Has Failed to Live Up to its Own Job-Creation Promises. At the time the President signed the trillion-dollar ‘stimulus’ into law, he claimed it would “create or save 3.5 million jobs over the next two years.”...

Adjourning Congress Without Voting to Stop All the Tax Hikes on Families and Small Businesses. Before Congress adjourned for the fall, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) called for immediate enactment of the Pledge to America, including specific proposals to cut spending and stop all the looming tax hikes that are making it impossible for small businesses to create jobs....

Enacting a Massive Financial Regulation Bill That Doesn’t Address the Core of the Financial Crisis. In July, President Obama signed into law a massive financial regulation bill that failed to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-backed mortgage companies at the heart of the financial crisis....

Institutionalizing Taxpayer-Funded Bailouts. In testimony given before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke confirmed that “a too-big-to-fail company undergoing the government’s new resolution process could still receive money from the Treasury,” making it clear that government bailouts are here to stay under the Democrats’ 2,300 page financial regulation bill....

Passing a Job-Killing National Energy Tax. Last year, House Democrats rammed a job-killing, 1,500 page national energy tax bill through the House that will raise electricity prices, increase gasoline prices, and ship American jobs overseas to countries like China and India....

Would venture to guess that the majority of Americans know someone who has become unemployed since Obama took office in January 2009. There are a lot of companies who have scaled back their workforce and now don't intend to hire because of the uncertainty about what faces them with the much higher costs of Obamacare. If Obamacare is allowed to stand unchanged, the unemployment rates will rise even more and current employees will have to pay more for health insurance.

Obamacare needs repealed because it is a bad bill that wasn't read before it was rammed through the Congress, but we expect Obama to block any repeal efforts veto. What Congress can do is not fund Obamacare at all to bring it to a halt while repealing sections one at a time.

Obama/Reid/Pelosi have managed to put this Country on its back with their spending more and more dollars that we don't have in less than two years. What do they do? Print more money like it does 'grow on trees' which puts the US more in debt to where today it is over a $13.6T deficit and growing every minute. Jobs are getting harder to find which in turns hurts the sale of big ticket items like cars and homes. Professional people who have become unemployed are having to take lesser paying jobs if they can find them which still will pay more than unemployment, but in many cases has made their mortgage or car payments unaffordable.

We think it is time for a CHANGE and throw out on November 2nd the progressive Democrats and their idea of what the Country should look like which is a 180 from the vast majority of Americans who are center right.   We are all for the idea of locking up the Halls of Congress until Republicans take over on 3 January 2011.  Won't happen but it would sure be better than the lameduck sessions which Obama/Pelosi Democrats have planned.  Since Obama calls Congressional Republicans the Party of "NO," Republicans need to live up to that name in the lameduck session.

Where are the JOBS?


With the Pledge to America, Republicans are Offering a Better Way to Create Jobs, End Economic Uncertainty

Eighteen months. That's how long Ohio middle-class families and small businesses have suffered from double-digit unemployment according to the most recent jobs report released last week.

Sadly, this report looks like too many we've seen since President Obama signed the $787 billion "stimulus" into law. Thousands more Ohioans lost their jobs. Unemployment remains painfully high.

With the Pledge to America, Republicans are offering a new and better way to address the people’s priorities, starting with a plan to create jobs and end economic uncertainty. This governing blueprint, which was built by listening to the people, starts with stopping all the looming tax hikes and ending Washington’s out-of-control spending spree. Make no mistake, our economy will ultimately recover, but it will do so because of the hard work and entrepreneurship of the American people, not more of the same wasteful Washington spending and job-killing tax hikes and mandates.
