Mr. Groan (08-22-2011)
And the GOP wants to cut taxes even further?
The payoff? They claim it will "create jobs".
While not all of these policies are currently performed by the federal government, they do represent an accurate calculation of the monetary tradeoffs, and each one individually would cost the same as the Bush tax cuts.
Here are ten alternatives we could’ve pursued instead:
- Give 122.7 million children health care
- Give 49.2 million low-income people access to healthcare
- Provide 43.1 million students with Pell grants worth $5,500
- Provide 31.5 million Head Start slots for ten years
- Provide VA Care For 30.7 million veterans for ten years
- Hire 4.19 million firefighters
- Hire 3.67 million teachers
- Hire 3.6 million police officers
I guess you can't respond to the OP.
Mr. Groan wants to compliment you on such a groantastic thread. Your premise is underwhelming, false and misses the regular school bus by hours.
You are faggot.
I see you can't respond to the OP either.
Republicans got tax and spending cuts. Where are the jobs?
The Republicans in Congress have been on a spending cut frenzy since they began their assault on workers and jobs earlier this year, and the economy has not improved or grown like it should have if the GOP’s assertions were correct.
At last count, the spending cuts Republicans have proposed will cost Americans nearly 2 million jobs making the GOP the job-killing masters.
It is really a twisted concept to understand, but for some unknown reason the Republicans have convinced their supporters that the jobs picture and the economy will improve by enacting spending cuts and maintaining the Bush-era tax cuts.
Where are the jobs?
