Speaker Boehner On the Latest Unemployment Report: Washington Needs to Do More to End the Uncertainty Facing Job Creators

Post by Guest on Fri Apr 01, 2011 10:12 am

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today released the following statement regarding the latest unemployment figures released by the U.S. Department of Labor:

“Any improvement in the jobs picture is welcome news for the country, but Washington needs to do more to end the uncertainty plaguing job creators. That means getting control of government spending, ending the threat of tax hikes, removing regulatory obstacles to job growth, and approving stalled trade agreements that would open new markets for American exports. These are the pillars of the Republican plan to help our economy get back to creating jobs, and it has been the focus of our new majority in the House.

“Excessive government spending continues to create economic uncertainty, erode confidence in our economy and crowd out the investment that fuels private-sector job creation. The House passed a bill more than 40 days ago that would cut spending and fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year to help end some of the uncertainty. But Senate Democrats have done nothing – except root for a government shutdown – and the White House has called for a job-destroying $1.5 trillion tax hike in its budget. They just don’t get it.

“Republicans are listening to the American people and focused on their top priority: creating jobs. By cutting spending and encouraging private-sector investment, expanding American energy production to address rising gas prices, reining in excessive government regulations and mandates, and removing barriers to job growth like ObamaCare, we can create a better environment for private-sector job growth. These are the reforms the American people are demanding, and our new majority is listening and working to deliver.”

“Republicans are listening to the American people and focused on their top priority: creating jobs."

I must have slept through the Republican job creation....http://www.whenarethejobs.com/

Not to mention the bit about listening to the American people, if that Idiot listened to the American people, he wouldn't have cried for TARP bail outs for one thing.

“Excessive government spending continues to create economic uncertainty, erode confidence in our economy and crowd out the investment that fuels private-sector job creation."

He's been in D.C. 7393 days, just how much of this excessive spending is his doing; quite a bit I'd say but as usual with this loser it is the fault of everybody else. Fricking hypocrite.

Typical!! I predict we will be seeing a lot of back-tracking done by the GOP in the next year or so...trying to cover their butts. More and more Americans are catching on to the two faced politicians. they make statements like this and then turn around and do, or have done, the exact opposite.
They will be trying to appeal to the voter base. I say no vote until they start taking the other 98% of Americans interests seriously and stop destroying the middle class. Everything they have done was for the top 2%.

He's all about helping Job Creators, what about the jobless. He has to look at both sides. The extension of the Bush Era Tax Cuts was supposed to be the magic pill. Instead of busting unions across the country, making State Workers and Teachers out to be the greediest people on earth, how about we take a look at what "Job Creators" are demanding. Greed? I think so.

This makes me sick...I'm sure he (Boehner) will use the new unemployment numbers to derail any hope of H.R. 589 getting passed. It needs to happen now, or I fear it never will.

A Bernie Sander's reminder of Top 10 Big Businesses that are NOT paying taxes...which of course would help our economy instead of the zero sum mentality persued against the middle class. The wealthiest people and the largest corporations in this country have got to contribute." Sorry it's so long!!
1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.

2) Bank of America received a $1.9 billion tax refund from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion.

3) Over the past five years, while General Electric made $26 billion in profits in the United States, it received a $4.1 billion refund from the IRS.

4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.

5) Boeing, which received a $30 billion contract from the Pentagon to build 179 airborne tankers, got a $124 million refund from the IRS last year.

6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.

7) Goldman Sachs in 2008 only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department.

8 Citigroup last year made more than $4 billion in profits but paid no federal income taxes. It received a $2.5 trillion bailout from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury.

9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.

10) Over the past five years, Carnival Cruise Lines made more than $11 billion in profits, but its federal income tax rate during those years was just 1.1 percent.
