Republicans are vowing to find ways to block the “triggered” cuts to defense that would automatically happen if the deficit-reduction committee can’t come up with a plan. In other words, they think failure SHOULD be an option. If you were wondering if President Obama got the best of Republicans in the debt-ceiling deal, there is your answer—right away, Republicans are trying to get out of it. Great. They held the nation hostage to get this deal… and now they’re trying to get out of this deal.

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

Yep, they will obstruct anything for political gain and to further enrich corporate cronies...to hell with the American people that are in need of jobs.

How does keeping people unemployed or under-employed enrich corporations? How can a corporation make money if there is no one to buy it's product or service?

I realize this is standard lib-think, but really, it's just stupid-think.

They're just posturing. The deal is now public law; the only way they can change is if Congress passes new legislation and the president signs it; or if they challenge it in the courts and have it thrown out.
Another issue they will need to contend with is the expiration of the Bush tax cuts (extended by Obama). The extension expires next year; if they walk out of this deal then the tax cuts are dead.

And with obama in the white house we can be guaranteed no new jobs will get created unless we spend another $5,000,000,000,000.00.

The unemployment lines on the other hand will get longer thanks to Mr Regulations...

This is a lie.

Obama promised to run the WH like we run our households. On a budget. He LIED.

You have to stop spending money you DO NOT HAVE.

Liberals and Obama are spending tomorrows money today and that is wrong.

You do not have to spend money to create jobs, the people who own business will do that.

The 800 billion dollar scam that was handed to Obama is not talked about enough.

He promised 5 million new jobs instead we got 5 million+ jobs losses.

If you want to spend my money I do not want it given to Obama based on his massive records of screw ups and failures.


Again something libs do not understand.

You cannot spend money you do not have and you cannot spend your way out of this Obama DEPRESSION.


Remember it was Obama who said he would change Washington and run things on a budget. HE FLAT OUT LIED.

Products are no longer made in the US. we are in "service economy"-i.e. slave wges/retail and consumer/customer service....

Therefore bank of America, capital One, JPMorgan and those who used to employ Americans have a new strategy....

The country's biggest bank, by assets, tries to assuage investors with plans to cut $5 billion in annual costs and trim weak businesses.


Kai Ryssdal: This morning, President Obama had one of those Rose Garden events presidents have when they want a nice backdrop for a big announcement. It wasn't all that big an announcement this time, actually. The president just wanted to let people know he's sending his jobs bill up to Congress, and that he really wants it to pass.

Unfortunately for him, Bank of America wasn't listening. Today, B of A CEO Brian Moynihan said he's going to cut 30,000 jobs over the next couple of years. He's trying to dig the country's biggest bank out of the hole it dug for itself by getting too big too fast.




do you think the give a damn what happens to American workers?

Again I will say look at all the bills the house has passed that are sitting on the shelf in the senate not brought up for debate by the DEMOCRATS and tell me who wants to create jobs. I know you won't so carry on with this nonsense.

Not at all. Extended by the Congress and signed by Obama. When will you people manage to understand that Obama "passes" only what he does with his questionable Executive Orders.

Will any of those people take the "shovel ready" jobs that Obama is talking about? I think most of them would rather not be working that kind of jobs. How about you.

I heard Obama telling Congress pass it or else. He just didn't say what his or else would be.

Yeah now we have Obama writing his own legislation. Why didn't he do any of that while in congress which was his job back then BTW??? Or else means he'll fire off another exec order like you say.
