Yesterday House Democrats unveiled a “Make it in America” agenda that is designed to spur domestic job creation with a series of common sense and proven reforms to address the nation’s persistent unemployment crisis by promoting exports, strengthening trade enforcement, hiking infrastructure spending, and rewarding companies that stop shipping Americans’ jobs overseas. The Democrats’ goal is to rebuild and restore the rapidly vanishing middle class, and it is dependent on four areas of focus including a manufacturing strategy, promoting exports, training and educating workers for a modern economy, and enticing companies to relocate and bring back jobs to America. It is not a new agenda, but there is concrete evidence that it is key to jumpstarting the economy and putting the country on a path to fiscal health with a vibrant middle class.

Republicans, led by John Boehner, take an opposing view based on destruction evident in the language they use according to their ideological bent based on cutting spending, eliminating regulations, slashing taxes for the wealthy, and removing government they claim is an impediment to their corporate donors. When Republicans parrot the Ronald Reagan mantra of “getting government out of the way,” they literally mean getting rid of the government they claim inhibits economic growth by stifling the private sector’s ability to create jobs. However, for the past four years private enterprise has thrived as a result of President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus), and complained their biggest impediment to creating jobs is not taxes, regulations, or government spending, but a weakened consumer base too poor to afford their products as a result of Republicans’ wont of killing public sector jobs, cutting spending, and rewarding corporations that move their operations, and Americans’ jobs, overseas.

Republicans have been on a destructive path for over thirty years, and crucial to their attack on the people is “getting government out of the way” to allow their corporate donors to run roughshod over the population. Their persistent calls to cut spending have not, and will not, create one job, and their cuts are for the sole purpose of giving more tax breaks to the rich. Their assault on regulations during the Bush administration allowed Wall Street and financial institutions to cause the greatest economic recession since the Great Depression, and they have their sights set on regulations today that are guaranteed to kill jobs, the environment, and put the financial sector in the drivers’ seat to create a repeat of the 2007-2008 crash. One of the Democratic proposals to create jobs is investing in green and renewable energy that Congressional Republicans will block as the Koch brothers and ALEC rescind renewable energy standards in every Republican controlled state.

If Americans wonder what Republicans would do if they had their way in Washington, they can look at any Republican-controlled state and see drastic cuts to social programs like education, safety nets, and public sector jobs to give tax breaks to corporations. A typical Republican governor is Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett who seeks significant cuts in teacher and state workers’ pensions, cuts over $1.5 billion from education, opts out of Medicaid expansion, and gives corporations at least $2.5 billion in tax cuts. Corbett’s Draconian budget will kill about 5,000 more jobs on top of the 20,000 teacher jobs already lost to corporate tax breaks, and by not participating in the Medicaid expansion program, Corbett assures between 482,000 to 683,000 low-income residents will go without healthcare to go along with the nearly 200,000 already thrown off Medicare and Medicaid. It is noteworthy that Medicaid expansion will not cost Pennsylvania one penny until 2017, and then their share will be a paltry 10% to cover nearly a million poor, elderly, and working-poor residents. Not only is Republican Tom Corbett killing jobs, but he is killing the poor and preventing children from a decent education just to perpetuate tax breaks for the rich.

Americans will never have to worry over a foreign enemy destroying this country because Republicans have been doing a fine job for over thirty years with their despicable “get government out of the way” mantra that has borne fruit in all but two Democratic presidents’ terms. Bill Clinton presided over the greatest economic growth since Eisenhower and he accomplished it with higher tax rates for the rich and increased environmental regulations. President Obama created over 4 million jobs with one tiny infusion of government money that will go down in history as saving America’s broken economy thanks to Republican deregulation and outrageous spending on tax cuts, two wars, and a gift to the pharmaceutical industry Americans will be repaying for at least a generation. Still, Republicans in Congress are holding firm to their anti-government agenda that is killing jobs and starving an ever-increasing poverty-stricken population including children and seniors. However, where they are blocked in Washington by a Democratic-controlled Senate and President Obama, they are thriving in Republican-controlled states suffering destruction of jobs, education, and social programs while corporations reap the benefits.

The absolute best way to get these insane Republicans to ignore your post is to put up absolute facts in it.

They don't want to know the facts. Anything that doesn't fit what they want to believe just "poof!" ...it doesn't exist. They'll never acknowledge the fact or change their views. In essence, they're insane.

It's not logical at all. They're committed to the dogma. No different really than jihadists.

Your effort to make this look like NEW news has failed.
Diane wa-wa of ABC evening news has been talking about this for the last several years.

Thursday Aug 5, 2010:
On Wednesday, President Obama used the platform of the AFL-CIO Executive Council to emphasize reviving American manufacturing and keeping jobs in America as his administration's new economic priority. After having failed to aggressively push for large-scale jobs creation in the face of Washington's deficit mania, Obama has unveiled new economic promises to appeal to the labor constituency he needs for the 2010 and 2012 elections.

He even insisted that his administration would "keep on fighting" for the Employee Free Choice Act—although it's been perfectly obvious to most sentient beings that his administration did virtually nothing to promote one of labor's top legislative priorities. A few progressive bloggers attacked the hypocrisy of the comments, such as Firedoglake's Michael Whitney:

For Obama to even mention the Employee Free Choice Act as anything but a deader-than-dead failure of his administration is an insult to the intelligence of every working person in America. Obama had the opportunity to push through the Employee Free Choice Act between February and April 2009. He let it linger, then let Democrats start sniping at it, and then the ship sailed with Scott Brown's election.

Still, his broader economic message was welcomed by labor, despite the disappointment that labor has periodically expressed over centrist compromises over health reform and inaction on the Employee Free Choice Act.

"The message I want to deliver to our [foreign] competitors—and to those in Washington who've tried to block our progress at every step of the way—is that we are going to rebuild this economy stronger than before, and at the heart of it are going to be three powerful words: Made in America," Obama said to union leaders' applause.

As the AFL-CIO Now blog noted, the president made clear how this upcoming election would be a choice between "polices that encourage job creation here in America or encourage jobs to go elsewhere...The choice is whether we want to go forward or we want to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess in the first place."

In truth, the ambitious pro-manufacturing agenda doesn't seem likely to be enough -- even if it managed to overcome GOP opposition and a politically nervous Democratic leadership -- to dramatically reduce the high unemployment and underemployment of roughly 20 percent. Or win over skeptical labor members and liberal activists.

"In truth, the ambitious pro-manufacturing agenda doesn't seem likely to be enough."

"In truth, the ambitious pro-manufacturing agenda doesn't seem likely to be enough."

What does Romney have to do with ANYTHING? Any statments you make in regards to the type of president he would have been is simply speculation. You have no IDEA the kind of president he would have been. But, one thing is for SURE. YOU voted TWICE for an individual who won't even condemn the members of al Quida. He was asked his opinion of al Quida and he totally skirted the question. Never DID answer it. You think you are so intelligent when in reality you are supported and participating in systematically dismantling this country. Guess what? Democratic Senator Bachus has suddenly decided that he isn't running for reelection. Wonder why? Could it be that a couple of weeks ago he warned that instating Obamacare was going to be a TRAINWRECK? Heck! He helped craft the legislation for Obamacare. ALSO, he broke ranks with fellow democrats and didn't support more background checks for those purchasing guns. The Obama Mean Machine kicked in and now Bachus is OUT after this term. You ignorant liberals are too stupid to see what you are going. Move on, TROLL.
Only insults thrown at our president and you still don't have any solutions nor do you have a candidate who would be honest and full of integrity. Vent,Fume,Rant and Rave all you want but one thing the most important thing is that you republicans will not touch or harm my country for the next FOUR YEARS, GET IT, FOUR YEARS, now take that to the bank.

As Leo Hindery Jr. of the New America Foundation observed about this new initiative, it's been promised before by then-candidate Obama:

All the way back in July 2008, then Candidate Obama told the United Steel Workers that, "Change is ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and giving them to companies that create good paying jobs here in America; it's putting people to work...making the materials we need to rebuild America; it's...creating millions of new jobs - jobs that we want to be good union jobs - and giving our workers the skills to do them."

So there you have it: 24 months after Obama's speech to the Steelworkers and 18 months after his Inauguration, we hear from Mr.[Rahm] Emanuel that "Made in America" and "ending overseas tax breaks" are finally to be the President's upcoming themes for the Fall 2010 Congressional campaigns. And political commentators and pollsters wonder why so many of us on the progressive, pro-worker side of American politics are so frustrated and cynical.

Even so, the scope of proposed congressional action is potentially helpful, but not enough to transform current economic trends. As The Washington Post recapped:

President Obama and congressional Democrats -- out of options for another quick shot of stimulus spending to revive the sluggish economy -- are shifting toward a longer-term strategy that promises to tackle persistently high unemployment by engineering a renaissance in American manufacturing.

That approach, heralded by Obama last week in Detroit and sketched out in a memo to House Democrats as they headed home for the August break, is still evolving and so far focuses primarily on raising taxes on multinational corporations that Democrats accuse of shipping jobs overseas.

The strategy also repackages policies long pursued by the White House -- such as investing in clean energy, roads, bridges and broadband service -- with more than two dozen legislative proposals aimed at developing a plan for promoting domestic manufacturing...

Senior Democrats acknowledge that the strategy emerged after the issue of off-shoring jobs figured prominently in a Pennsylvania special election earlier this year and a recent poll.

Some independent analysts are also skeptical. U.S. manufacturing jobs have been disappearing since 1979, in part because of the heightened productivity of American workers but also because of cheaper labor abroad. During the past decade, the sector lost a third of its workers, falling to 11.7 million last year from 17.3 million people in 1999, according to the most recent figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics...

All this comes when union leaders are working hard to overcome potential apathy by some union workers over the Obama administration. As the Washington Independent noted:

The Democrats know that having the unions on board and excited will be crucial to driving good voter turnout for the party during midterms, but they also realize it'll be a bit of a tall order...

Some union officials are walking away from [AFL-CIO President Richard] Trumka's call to stand by the president, though. Many union members disappointed by the "cadillac tax" on generous health benefits that found its way into Obama's health care reform bill. And there has been virtually no movement in Congress on unions' pet issue, the Employee Free Choice Act.

" The strategy also repackages policies long pursued by the White House -- such as investing in clean energy, roads, bridges and broadband service -- with more than two dozen legislative proposals aimed at developing a plan for promoting domestic manufacturing..."

Diane wa-wa was the leader every evening.

Since billions have been wasted on green energy, we have heard very little until the democrats brought out their re-cap legislation.

Another round of green jobs, Obama denying the oil pipeline which would create thousands of jobs and not a word from libtard about obama failure to create jobs. OH excuse me, he did create thousands of gubment jobs.

Sequester was and is a good thing. The only problem is that it did'nt cut enough. Both republicans and democrats would like to kill it after only 2 months because it is starting to affect their constituents. The Korean missile propaganda was an effort to scare us all, so we would pressure Congress into stopping the defence cuts that are a part of the Sequestor. It did'nt work but look for more scare tactics in the future.

WASHINGTON (AP)- The economy's relentless growth means federal surpluses will be far larger than estimated, leaving plenty of room for George W. Bush's proposed tax cut, aides to the presidential contender said Tuesday.

Bush's new estimates came amid cries from supporters of his Democratic rival, Vice President Al Gore, that the Republican's plan would be so big that it would force deep spending cuts and a return to budget deficits. Bush's plan ''still doesn't add up,'' a Gore adviser asserted.
Stop it with the facts !!!

First we have Right Wing Wacko Ronnie Ray-Gun using Right Wing economic policies and Tripling the national debt - and the Middle Class gets screwed.

Then we have Right Wing Wacko and Corporate Tool Bush #2 using Right Wing Wacko economic policies to turn a budget surplus into a $1.4 Trillion Dollar deficit, to double the national debt, and screw the Middle Class.

Next then you know - you'll be claiming anyone with an IQ higher than a fire hydrant would understand Right Wing Whacko economic policies are ........ well...... Wacko.
