    I’m betting that O’s next “crisis/distraction” will be that illegal aliens must be made citizens immediately or else.

    Never mind that black unemployment is at 14% and the most Americans in history are now on food stamps and/or disability.

    Good job prez.

    This is what a real leader sounds like.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-26/boehner-accuses-obama-of-using-military-in-cuts-debate.html

    “House Speaker John Boehner said the U.S. House won’t act to replace automatic federal spending cuts until the Senate “gets off their ass” and passes a plan.”

    Of course Obama got away with a lie in the debates about this latest sequester mess. It was his staffs idea before it was not then it was till it did not poll well and now that it is not as big it is no longer his mess?

    It would be nice if the Republicans went through with their 2010 mantra of a “laser-like focus on jobs.” So, of course, they didn’t want to go through with Obama’s instrastructure repair proposals (because it would make O and the economy look good…can’t have that!).

    Heard a person talking about the problems between Israelis and Palestinians and he said, “They never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.”

    The number of billionaires increased 16% since last year. There are now 1426 of them. Corporations are sitting on money. Pay for people who actually create things like food, power, or provide services is miniscule while people who gamble on the value of currencies make fortunes.

    Mr. Heller makes an excellent point that Mr. Obama and Mr. Boehnor are standing too close to in the art to see. Jobs. Workers pay taxes, buy products, increase demand, and in doing so, create jobs. So much needs to be done, but so few people with money or access to money are willing to do things. The Carnegies, JP Morgans, and other magnates of history – despite their misdeeds – loved this nation and invested in it. Our leading capitalists now don’t care about this nation, and invest their money in oversea accounts.

    I would like to see a really high tax placed on the rich,
    however, I would like to see THEM decide where the tax should go. Perhaps there is a bridge near their home that needs repair. Perhaps the city in which they live needs more police or firemen or teachers to educate the workers the wealthy need to work in their corporations. Maybe they would be willing to invest in a pipe line to take water from a river prone to flooding and move high water to areas in drought. Maybe there are very wealthy people who love wild places and would invest in parks and wildlife preserves.

    Our nation needs heroes with money. We have heroes sweating blood and tears but they can’t change a nation without the resources with which to work. If the job creators won’t help out of self interest or patriotism, they need to be compelled. No one has the right to have ALL of the money as long as money is finite, and the only way things get done.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Boehner goes on the Sunday shows and lies that the president doesn’t have a plan, lies that the senate Democrats don’t have a plan, lies that his congress passed a plan (they haven’t, that was last congress and he no longer has the votes), and he’s Howie’s “hero?” That explains a lot about the continuing downgrade of the Republican brand.

    Since when did you party, not the name but the philosophical party care about blacks, not to mention minorities of any color or race? Certainly not in the recent generations, if ever.

    Bohner a leader? harley you really need to lay off the stuff you get from your freelance recreational pharmaceutical representative. That stuff has rotted your brain.


    As I have written in the past, President Obama can lead the Congress to a solution that benefits the masses of Americans but he can’t make the republicans agree if it doesn’t disproportionately benefit the über-wealthy. On the other hand bohner can get “98% of what I wanted” and still not get his party to follow him. Okay that was a little unfair, but you can’t honestly deny that bohner hasn’t failed to garner the support of his own party for republican led bills that came up for vote or were waiting to come up for a vote and that was just recently.


    Bohner can’t get his own party to agree to the demands they had just made and you call him a leader?

    The phrase “Responsibility in government” was NEVER there in the last administration either.

    @ARodney

    I think you forgot one crucial part of that “last congress.” It does not matter what was passed during the last congress, it is by law dead, no longer a viable actionable bill. So they could have passed it in the last hour of the last day they were in session of the last congress and say they passed the bill, but knowing it was impossible for the Senate to take it up makes it useless anyway. I’m not saying that is what they did but it’s not out of their realm of behavior. Unless bohner can pass the same bill now, with enough time for the Senate to bring it up, pass it and send it the President, it is irrelevant what they do.


    And you know the funny thing is, this half-truth and procedural falsehood has been debunked with truth and facts time and again on the “liberal media” but I still hear/read it from the righties from time to time since bohner said it.

    this is another liberal I want some one else to create jobs while I go to walmart and buy imports. Building roads or bridges does not help if the money goes to walmart then china.

    @ronald rini

    How does building roads and bridges in America send money to China?
    .
    You are getting all wrapped up in the party and forget to use common sense.
    .
    Are we going to import Chinese labor and pay them to build our infrastructure?. You are not making sense.
    .
    But then….

    Agreed. Interest rates will never be lower. Workers are sitting idle looking for something to do. We desperately need infrastructure investment. We need to setup early education for every preschooler. We need investment in research and development.

    The way to solve ‘debt, deficit and unemployment’ is to grow our way out of it. By investing in the future.

    Bingo. Too many politicians are trying to fix everything in the moment rather than planning 5, 10, or even 50 years ahead. If the Republicans want to run government like a business, you need to spend money to make money. Do what FDR and Ike did and get a serious and well-engineered plan to rebuild bridges and highways that will be good for a few decades, not just patching up potholes and repainting. And do actual maintenence, not just “fix it after it breaks.”

    We have untold amounts of corporate capitol sitting idle, as well. Give them some incentive to invest that into the middle class via more need for goods and services, which will come about with more people having work in a good paying job.
