One HUGE reason businesses are not hiring is because of the unknown cost of Obamacare, something McCaskill voted in favor of. That alone is reason enough to toss her ass out of office.

Another HUGE reason businesses are not hiring is because of high tax rates and overregulation, both of which McCaskill and her Democrat party tirelessly fight to increase.

Look, we tried the retarded liberal way and it has been an unmitigated disaster. We must throw the idiots out of office and elect fiscal conservatives who will cut spending, lower tax rates and reduce ridiculous regulations. Until we do that, the unemployment rate will continue to be over 8%.

dumb shit just ask any business person about all the regulations they have to comply with. Even farmers can't apply chemicals too their crops unless they have a permit.

I figured you just repeat stuff you hear from the right wing blather industry.

You're not in favor of regulations to control spraying chemicals, some cancer causing, some poisonous, on farmland?

In 2008, bh0 made the statement that under his administration an electric company could build a coal-fired power plant if they chose to do so, but he would see to it that "they would go bankrupt as a result of regulatory costs".

Since the green communist regime took office, 57 coal-fired power plants have been taken off line. Although growth in demand for energy has slowed due to the massive closures of industrial and manufacturing plants, the increased regulatory expenses have resulted in higher electricity rates.

The solar and wind energy industry has proved to be nothing more than a boondoggle, soaking the taxpayers and future generations for Billions of dollars and returning little, if anything in useful product.

I doubt that. I doubt you could point to even one plant that went off line because of Obama.

This article tells about 6 and mentions 32 that WILL have to shut down and another 36 that MIGHT have to shut down because of EPA regulations initiated since Obama took office.

You can't claim Conservative bias in that article, it's from a Marxist site.

Agreed that the Obama administration issued a new rule after ordered by the court.

But it's Obama's rules and increased regulations that are forcing the plants to close or face huge fines for non-compliance.

We agree he was ordered by the court to issue a new rule, but the court didn't tell him what to put in it.

What you will probably disagree with me on is that the regulations he put in the new rule are what is causing the power companies to shut down the plants.

quote

"AKRON, Ohio — FirstEnergy Corp. said Thursday that new environmental regulations led to a decision to shut down six older, coal-fired power plants...The plants targeted to shut down have been producing less power over the last few years, mainly during times of peak demand, the company said....The announcement marks a big day for the people of Ohio and the fish of Lake Erie, said Henry Henderson, the Midwest program director for the Natural Resources Defense Council, which has been working to shut down two of the plants.

"Make no mistake, these plants were operating well-beyond their intended lifespan for a reason: it has been cheap to be dirty," he wrote on a Council website. "And utilities have taken advantage."

Cleaner power plants are a good thing. Building new ones provides jobs. I'd rather spend money on subsidizing new clean power plants than the hundreds of billions it takes to act like the world's cop.

bufu is your typical retarded liberal idiot that refuses to accept the facts. He mindlessly swallows the bullshit fed to him by the Washington liberal elitists, then pukes it back up here on topix expecting the rest of us to lap it up like he did.

No need wasting time piling up proof. You just can't fix stupid.

Piling up proof?

You linked to a short article complaining about air quality and financial regulations.

Those regulations are bad? Tell me how they are bad.

Quote @ bubu: "Those regulations are bad? Tell me how they are bad."

Steve Miller, the President and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity stated on Tuesday,

“Unfortunately, the EPA continues to ignore the real impact their rules will have on American families and businesses by driving up energy prices and destroying jobs.

“This is another, in a series of new regulations, written by EPA to prevent the U.S. from taking advantage of our vast coal resources that are responsible for providing affordable electricity for America’s families and businesses. This latest rule will make it impossible to build any new coal-fueled power plants, and could cause the premature closure of many more coal-fueled power plants operating today.

“So far, other EPA regulations are responsible for the announced closure of more than 140 electricity generating units in 19 states. The regulation EPA proposed today could raise the number of closures even higher and put more workers out of jobs.

“Rarely is there bipartisan agreement in Washington, D.C., but there is on this issue. This was evident when a bipartisan majority of U.S. House of Representatives recently wrote to President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget urging them to stop this economically-damaging rule.”

First, where do you read that in Steve Miller's quote?

Second, man-made climate change is only a theory that has never been proven except when the research models are plugged with false data.

The Fox link is an editorial that says things like:

"Obama’s EPA is crippling the U.S. economy not to accomplish anything, but just to enjoy a nice, warm, green feeling of self-satisfaction."
----------

Conservatives and republicans don't give a damn about pollution or climate change. We know that already.
