Truth is the economy is still worse off than when Obama came in
Good thing he is going around talking about creating jobs….
And where would this magical money come from? Taking it by force from people who work is not the answer.
I swear progressives need to take an economics class.
Voters top five issues:
- Economy - 24%
- Jobs - 18%
- Deficit - 11%
- Government dissatisfaction - 10%
- Healthcare - 6%
(source - Gallup poll, April 15th)
Interesting to see gun control isn’t on the list because, you know, “90% of Americans support background checks.”
The top 10 freest states are:
4. New Hampshire
2. South Dakota
1. North Dakota
While the least free state is, surprise: New York.
Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren during a hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions last week asked why the current federal minimum wage rate is only $7.25 and not $22 an hour.
“If we started in 1960, and we said that, as productivity goes up — that is, as workers are producing more — then the minimum wage is going to go up the same,” the Massachusetts senator said during the hearing.
“And, if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour. So, my question … is what happened to the other $14.75?” she asked University of Massachusetts professor of economics Arindrajit Dube
First she fakes being Native American and now she’s faking being an economist? She fails on both fronts.
Massachusetts, you elected a moron.
7 SMALL BUSINESSES TELL US HOW OBAMA’S CALL FOR AN INCREASE IN MINIMUM WAGE WOULD AFFECT THEM: ‘BAD, BAD, BAD’
Where’s that “fair share” everyone keeps talking about?
THERE’S A ‘CHILLING’ ECONOMIC REPORT MAKING THE ROUNDS AMONG TOP EXECS — AND WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT GOV’T PROGRAMS
But “right to work” laws are bad, right? Oops, guess that narrative doesn’t fit reality.
Don’t like Wal-Mart’s wages? Don’t work for them.
What’s that? That’s the only job you can get?
Thank you Wal-Mart.

Maybe somebody will buy the rights to these products and keep them going.
Until then, the wind down means the closure of 33 bakeries, 565 distribution centers, approximately 5,500 delivery routes and 570 bakery outlet stores throughout the United States.
We gotta get those jobs back! :( I want to see a renovated love for American blue collar jobs like this. These jobs are the backbone of our country. I pray for our America….
Replaced by green energy jobs with a much lower death toll in the line of work with only an 8% failure rate and a renewable resource unlike coal which will end in the next 100 years at the rate we consume.
Green energy: We aren’t there yet. It is not a viable option. Americans need jobs!
Solar panels, windmills, the Hoover dam. Don’t tell me green energy isn’t viable, people with stock in coal (politicians) don’t want green energy. We’ve had the technology for years, gullibility is a cancer for America.
$90 billion and counting… if it was viable then you would think at least one of the failed green energy companies would succeed. The free market weeds out lemons.
Not saying we shouldn’t continue looking into alternatives, but for now we need to power our homes and businesses. That means coal, nuclear and hydro power.
Speaking of the Hoover Dam, I’m pretty sure if somebody tried to build a similar dam the environment nuts would stop it dead in it’s tracks. Not to mention that Lake Mead is drying up (overuse) and is expected to reach a level that will not sustain the Dam’s power plant in mere decades. Solar panels are not efficient enough to supply enough power for our consumption needs… not to mention the sun goes down at night. As for windmills, wind doesn’t always blow. The output is not consistent enough to turn a profit. Just ask T. Boone Pickens, he invested millions of his own money and admits wind power is flawed.
Until we get this magic power supply that releases 0 carbon, is cost effective and is widely available we should probably stick to what we know works.
