5 million jobs? $800M stimulus? That’s $160,000 per job!
Yep, GM went bankrupt, and Chrysler was sold to Fiat. Bankruptcy does not necessarily put a company out of business.
Increased oil production on PRIVATE LAND, but reduced public land production.
We can already buy more fuel efficient cars. We don’t need the government to tell us to drive more fuel efficient cars. And how many lives does it cost when cars are smaller and lighter? He cannot change the laws of physics.
On that note, we need to invest in cargo rail to get the long-haul trucks off the road. More fuel efficient and saves lives.
Actually, Governor, maybe we should use up the Middle East oil first!
So, if the government doesn’t encourage it, it’s “magic” that makes it happen?
Our oil imports are down because the economy is down. You don’t use as much gas if you don’t have a job to drive to.
“That was not a question; it was a statement.” BITCH SLAP. And 0bama sits down.
The only thing the mortgage interest deduction does is raise real estate prices.
Bush reduced tax rates, and the percentage paid by the wealthy INCREASED. 0bama and crew want to use static models that do not account for changes in behavior in response to changes in the tax code.
No, Mr President — we’ve only been hurting since the Democrats took Congress in 2007.
Whatever is taken from anyone — top 2% or bottom 98% — cannot be used to buy the goods and services produced by workers. We have seen the government spend $160,000 for each job created. Privately created jobs cost much less.
Companies should not be taxed at all. Those taxes are paid for either in lower income for the owners, lower income for the employees, or higher prices for the customers. Just tax the money when it gets to the individuals. Romney paid a LOT of money in taxes through his corporations. That does not show up on his individual returns.
The Bush tax cuts resulted in INCREASING revenue to the government, and decreasing deficits.
Don’t add up by what models? One cannot use static models to predict revenues when the tax rates and deductions change.
The moderator really needs and OFF switch for the mikes.
Lady, if women really made 75% of what men do for EQUAL work, companies would hire five women for the price of four men (at 80% — taking them from the employers paying 75%) and put their competition out of business. Are women really incapable of negotiating fair pay?
BTW, the Lilly Ledbetter Act did not help Lilly Ledbetter. Doing so would have been an ex post facto law.
If the employer is paying for insurance, he should decide what’s in the plan.
If Planned Parenthood is so good, why does it need government money? Wouldn’t people willingly donate their own money to it?
She’s right, Bush should have vetoed the Democrats’ B.S. his last two years.
The tax cuts INCREASED revenues, Mr. President.
How much more are we paying for tires to save those thousand jobs?
Ask? ASK? Just ask your contributors to send to the government instead of your campaign. Romney gave more to charity last year than ALL LIBERALS TOGETHER gave to the government. He puts his money where his mouth is. Liberals don’t. If they did, they would not demand that the rest of us pay for Planned Parenthood.
And yes, 0bama did vote, as a US Senator, to increase the budget $1T per year.
You cannot put those “green cards” to the diplomas of foreign students. If you do, their governments will not let them come.
0bama has ignored the immigration laws he does not like.
Yeah, illegal immigration is the lowest ever because there are no jobs here, either.
0bama has implemented self-deportation. The unemployed illegals are leaving!
Romney was not the Republican standard-bearer when 0bama took office.
I guess 0bama thinks Romney has no policies save those his advisers give him. Is that how 0bama works?
So, he told his diplomatic security people to close the barn door after the horses were killed?
An attack on a consulate or embassy is not a crime, it is an act of war.
He did, and then backed off that for the next fortnight, saying it was a response to a video.
How many AK-47’s have been used in crime in this country?
The Miller decision ruled that it was military weapons that are protected by the Second Amendment, not hunting rifles.
No, Governor, you just need to pay a $200 tax to own an automatic weapon. In fact, you can buy a semi-auto, pay the $200, and convert it to full auto.
The Clinton Assault Weapons Ban did nothing to reduce crime.
Our kids schools are significantly worse with more U.S. government involvement.
Jobs will be here when we have a relative advantage. If China wants to spend $5 to produce something they sell us for $4, just smile and thank them for the dollar. They will go broke doing it.
If we buy more than we make, which we can ONLY do if we go into debt to buy those extra things, then we have to have a trade deficit.
We have lost manufacturing jobs because our manufacturing is more efficient. We are producing MORE goods with fewer people. But we can only buy so much STUFF. That is why we have been moving to a service economy.
If we double our exports, we’ll have to increase out imports by a like amount if we keep buying more than we make.
The Yuan has increased against the dollar because the dollar has fallen with all the “Quantitative Easing.”
Yes, Mr. President, you raised the Minimum Wage beyond the point that unskilled labor is worth that price. THAT is why those jobs will not come back — at least until inflation outpaces the Minimum Wage.
If you don’t believe government creates jobs, why do you credit the $800B stimulus for those 5 million jobs (at $160k per job)?
Only pay in a combat zone is not taxable. Military in Japan, Germany, England, etc., do pay taxes on that pay.
