Jobless Recovery

Post by gettheminNOVEMBER on Tue Jul 26, 2011 3:27 pm

http://politicsnow.hubpages.com/hub/jobs_unemployment_99ers?done

Many others in thier late 40s and 50s just can't find a job due to age discrimination and an ever increasing competitive job market. These are the 99ers. There is an estimated one job for every 8 or 9 people. These are good people with jobs skills that just need a break. Just one person to care and give them a hand up in life.

Blog number 2! cheers

I think someone said it here the best, if they raise taxes on the rich those same people will only charge more for the products and services they offer. It therefore benefits no one to actually take that approach. We need to cut spending in Washington anyway we can because that's the only solution, and maybe if those entitlements get cut badly enough people will start voting for someone interested in helping them instead of hurting them. That's the only solution I can see.

On healthcare I feel it's wrong to make it required to purchase, and even with that policy they will continue soaring costs because doctors and nurses and god knows who else always want MORE they are in it for the money and not any other reason usually. So eventually without capping what they get paid for their services nationwide we're going to have a serious issue when even with health insurance you can't afford to get treated.

It is obvious that dreamslides does not know what he is talking about. I suggest that you read Robert Reich articles and watch The ED Show on MSNBC. He is on at 10 PM Monday-Thursday. You can also watch his show later on the internet.

Many on this forum will back me up. You have a right to voice your opinion, but please get your facts right. Not to call you a moron, but that is what the article is claiming about is the way morons that treat the 99ers, older workers and the loosing middle class in this Great Depression II.

Next you want to take away the Social Security and Medicare. Be prepared to work until your dead.

You do know the tax cuts are NOT paid for. So you theory about cutting spending and keeping the tax cuts won't fly. The first round we put on the credit card along with 2 wars and a med program. Sorry you want to cut spend end the tax giveaways.

We need to invest in our future, create jobs and demand then go from there.

HA HA ! Thats funny. Problem is NO ONE wants to hire OLD PEOPLE anymore. So HOW are we going to WORK until we are dead. Another BIG FLAW in the plans of the MONKEYS in DC. This is such madness, not only have they allowed those who wrecked the economy off the hook, they have thrown out those over 40 with the bath water. This is insanity, plain and simple.

Well this is a moot point anyway. The tax cuts that are being discussed are on individual tax payers, not on corporations. You could argue that corporations create jobs and therefore shouldn't be taxed but hardly any big corporations pay taxes at all. Literally, not one penny. In fact, a great number of them, like Exxon for example, get billions in YOUR tax money back every year. It's free money for the rich. Sound right? Nope, but it's true.

The idea that we can't regulate or tax big business because it will "just charge us more" is ridiculous. This, in a nutshell, is what is wrong with our country now. We need to make it impossible for them to do that through regulation. When I our country was great we had high taxes on big business, we need to go that way again.

This is basically what the corporations are doing now. They have enough money to weather the storm so they are implying that if they have to pay higher taxes that they will just lay off more people. Everyone panics and gives them what they want, this is what has to stop.

Did anyone read that article recently about Boeing selling a pin to the US Army for $71 and it had a value of 4 cents? Yeah there IS too much spending government but this is where it is, not in social security and not in medicare.

Here is a link for reference:

Healthcare is expensive? Sure is! You know why? Because Doctors rip health insurance companies and health insurance companies rip off everyone else. Doctors especially rip off medicare. They can basically charge whatever they want for services and the bill is paid. This needs to change. This is a change in medicare that I would support. We also need a single payer health system. Everyone pays in and everyone that needs it benefits. If you are wealthy enough to afford private health insurance then you won't be bothered by the slight increase in taxes that you pay. Just like you don't notice the increase in taxes that you pay for the school system even though you may not have kids.
