Eric Cantor says Labor Day should honor job creators, not workers. Well, Eric, since I got a paid day off today, I will honor labor unions for making that possible. All you non billionaires out there should join me, and dump elitists like Cantor.

there's no arguing that. I appreciate every paycheck I ever got. I agree that business investors deserve good return on their investment. But I don't buy the repub argument that they built it without help, and deserve all the credit. They stand on the shoulders of what was already here, and the people, rich and poor, who created it. Didn't I just read about 750 people who died digging through a mountain back in the 30s, to create a power plant? When a rich man turns on the lights, does he give credit to anyone but himself?
Well said...and from that work should come decent wages to match the profits made, not some CEO making tens of millions of dollars a year while workers make $7.25 per hour.

$7.25 an hour must be a Wv thing. That is IQ pay. The higher your IQ the more you make.

Republican spin doctors at their finest during the 2008 campaigns...FOX lies once again.

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story...

The quote comes from a January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle; the Obama campaign says the quote is being "wildly" taken out of context, that in the full interview Obama praises coal and says that the idea of eliminating coal is "an illusion."

"The line they pulled out is in the context of cap and trade program," says an Obama spokesperson. "The point Obama is making is that we need to transition from coal burning power plants built with old technology to plants built with advanced technologies -- and that is exactly the action that will be incentivized under a cap and trade program."

Is it being taken unfairly out of context? You be the judge. Here's the entirety of Obama's remarks:

"I voted against the Clear Skies Bill. In fact, I was the deciding vote -- despite the fact that I'm a coal state and that half my state thought that I had thoroughly betrayed them. Because I think clean air is critical and global warming is critical.

"But this notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion. Because the fact of the matter is, is that right now we are getting a lot of our energy from coal. And China is building a coal-powered plant once a week. So what we have to do then is figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it. If we can't, then we're gonna still be working on alternatives.

"But ... let me sort of describe my overall policy. What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade policy in place that is as aggressive if not more aggressive than anyone out there. I was the first call for 100 percent auction on the cap and trade system. Which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases that was emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants are being built, they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted-down caps that are imposed every year.

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted. That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel, and other alternative energy approaches. The only thing that I've said with respect to coal -- I haven't been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as an ideological matter, as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it, that I think is the right approach. The same with respect to nuclear. Right now, we don't know how to store nuclear waste wisely and we don't know how to deal with some of the safety issues that remain. And so it's wildly expensive to pursue nuclear energy. But I tell you what, if we could figure out how to store it safely, then I think most of us would say that might be a pretty good deal.

Wow....what words. Now, show us all your REASONS for voting for Romney...quote his agenda and how he will create jobs, provide health care to all the Mountaineers suffering cancers from the coal sludge and how the President is a dictator...show us...with links and information and facts. Otherwise, you're nothing more than a sock trying to support Jay's arguments. ;)

Vote for old Mitt, he's the same man that owns part of the Factory in Illinois that is laying off 170 workers and shipping the equipment to China. This company makes auto sensors, and they're even making the employees teach the Chinese how to run the equipment before it is boxed up and moved. This crap is what got us where we are, and if you expect any relief under Mitt, you must be smoking the good stuff.

Unemployment is up...particularly among blacks. Gas prices up. Average household income down. Food prices up. Borders still not secure. Debt is at astronomical levels.

It's kinda like things were during the Bush years, only worse.

YOu created the lies...so I guess that's what you're sticking to, huh? You just told a big fat wad of lies you can't back up....I don't believe in telling lies, that why I put the truth and back it up with links.

Here you have it folks, a republican liar, keeping up the unethical and immoral positions of lying that Romney and Ryan have started and stated they will continue to do. If you want the lowest of the low in ethics, then by all means, be a republican. No moral character here...just a lie spreader.

Actually, the republicans have the record, with Bush losing over 2.3 million jobs in his first 5 years.

Republican have slashed programs which means slashed jobs in the Congress...and the tea party governors have slashed tens of thousands of jobs in the state and with teachers as well.

Then there's the republcian refusal to generate jobs.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/19/politics/senate...

Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

In voting against the bill, Republicans raised both substantive and procedural problems with the measure.

The bill fell four votes short of the 60 needed to bring it to debate, with 42 voting against it. Four GOP senators -- Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine and Dean Heller of Nevada -- voted in favor of the bill.

----------

Republicans STILL fighting to remove more jobs from our nation...they are the jobbywhackers....they are the anti-American workers party.

But Reagan did and so did Bush...the republicans in the Congress now are blocking every effort to create jobs and they are proud of the fact they are doing it...because it is more important to them to make the PResident a one term president, than to help the American economy, worker and family.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Which_president_of_...

Or put another way: From 1980 to the end of the Bush 43 administration, all three Republican presidents combined produced, over a period of 20 years, two million fewer jobs than Bill Clinton managed to eke out in eight. Kennedy and Johnson managed to produce 50 percent more jobs in four years than the Bushes did in twelve.(In Bush 43's first term he produced ten thousand jobs.) And as for Carter...the Republicans portray him as a president who could do nothing right, but in his four years he managed to produce nearly as many jobs as Reagan did in his second term--10.3m for Carter, 10.8m for Reagan. Even Eisenhower, one of the few Republican presidents I happen to like, was no good at job creation. His 3.5 million jobs created over eight years were far fewer than the 5.5 million Democrat Harry Truman produced in four. In percentage of increase, Eisenhower's record is similar to Reagan's first term.
Translation: Republicans really don't do this "job creation" thing very well.
If you want to go at it by percent of increase, the president with the best job creation rate in the last 40 years is the last guy you'd ever expect: Jimmy Carter, at 3.1 percent. He beat everyone on the list.

People who give out false information should really be careful there's not someone on the forum who recognizes the dull lies of the right wing.
