With unemployment remaining above 9%, Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an unorthodox jobs program - shutting down private business and jeopardizing good-paying jobs in the process.
Do you think its right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because its non union? asked host Maria Bartiromo. Pelosis reply: Yes.
The minority leader quickly added that she would rather it simply unionize and stay open. But barring unionization, by Pelosis reasoning, it should simply shut down.
Americans for Prosperity released a statement today denouncing President Obama for yet again seeking to impose his fiscally-unsound agenda by sidestepping Congress. The Presidents American Jobs Act, which amounts to yet another mortgage bailout, is being pushed with phony urgency under the slogan we cant wait.
Phil Kerpen, Vice President of Policy at Americans for Prosperity said, Just last month, President Obama said he wished he could, Work my way around Congress. Clearly he wasnt kidding. The President seems to think of himself as a monarch rather than an executive responsible to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States Despite years studying and teaching the Constitution, Obama has failed to the grasp the concept of checks and balances.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is loud but limited. Compare its beginnings with the tea partys. A month into the tea partys existence, hundreds of thousands of Americans in thousands of towns and cities had joined the cause. Their message was crystal clear: bring back economic prosperity by cutting government spending and taxation, rolling back intrusive regulations and expanding individual freedom. The rule of law was respected as well.
A month into the Occupy Wall Street movement, we see a few thousand radicals in a couple of dozen big-city liberal enclaves. Theyre breaking the law in city after city. And their message? Well, its all over the radical left map: demands for debt forgiveness, anti-military diatribes and even calls for the end to free enterprise and the seizure of private property. There are calls for violence mixed with virulently anti-Semitic slurs denigrating the Jews who run Wall Street.
Americans for Prosperity's Cut Spending Now tour had two great stops in Memphis, TN and Jonesboro, AR on Saturday. What made them great? The dedicated people that showed up with friends and family because they are tired of the continued generational debt Washington is placing us in.
The fabulous restaurant Kooky Canuck was the stop in Memphis. We were thrilled that proprietor, Shawn Danko, opened his doors to us in an effort to spread a fiscally responsible message to Memphis and the surrounding areas.
While the River City brought an energizing start to the day, Jonesboro was filled with fired up activists. Many activists came out in force to the Chick-fil-A on Stadium Boulevard. They signed petitions, picked out some of the awesome Cut Spending Now t-shirts, and gathered information that will be used to educate both themselves and friends/family.
