While the Republican Leadership campaigned about "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" before the last Congressional election they have concentrated on crying about lowering corporate taxes and emlminating funding for American retirees' healthcare since they became the majority:

I saw an ad running by Huckabee trying to take a way healthcare from the American people. How could a good Christian deny health care to those who can't afford? It just seemed counter to the tenets of Christianity that encourages us to help the needy and the poor. The ad was was disgusting.

The GOP/TEA Birthers lack the political courage to do what is best for this country. They have overspent beyond their means and now refuse to pay down the debt they amassed. The Dems and President Obama may have overspent, but they spend HERE at HOME on the American People. They managed to avoid another Great Depression. And now they have comprised on cutting spending. The GOP/TEA Birthers however refuse to compromise on increasing tax revenue to bring down the debt. Quite honestly, they could care less if the economy cripples b/c they believe they can ride it out with the tax savings they hoarded under the Bush GOP Tax cuts. But if they fail to reinvest that in the American people and hire and create jobs then that poverty will trickle through every class eventually.

American needs to show the world it can lead. Our politicians need to show that they have the political courage to cut spending and increase revenue and show that America is the responsible adult that can take care of its finances. However, this requires the GOP/TEA Birthers to develop the spine and backbone to stand up to the radical right.

It's impossible to accumulate debt if you don't spend money.

They are not competent enough to create programs to encourage job growth. They only wanted to lower taxes for the corporations and get elected to office.

Because the Healthscam Bill doesn't "provide" healthcare coverage to anyone. All it does is provide more middle class dollars to corporations.

Speaking of jobs, where are all of those jobs the Commiecrat majority promised in conjuction with the Healthscam bill? Where are the millions that Commiecrat Biden promised?

Exactly. Nothing will change until the communist fraud, his cabinet, czars, and vitriolic socialist party are ousted.
