Raw Story ran this from Helen Wheels:

Everyone should copy & paste this for safekeeping and for sticking in lying sack of shit baggerfascists’ faces whenever necessary. I, with the help of other commenters up here, have kept a running tab of the GOP War on Women:

– Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Equal Pay for Women Act
– Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Al Franken‘s Anti-Rape Amendment

– Every GOP member vote FOR Anti-Safe Abortion Legislation

– Every GOP member vote FOR Blunt/Rubio Anti-Women’s Equal Health
Coverage Amendment. While Blunt/Rubio Amendment does not allow employer
to deny men employee health coverage for Vasectomy, the Blunt/Rubio
Amendment allows Employer to deny female employees & female
dependents: contraception, tubes tied, and hysterectomies.

– GOP Redefine Rape

– GOP write legislation to probe metal prongs up a woman’s vagina

– GOP change legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and…

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘How the “Job Creators” Really Spend Their Money’

Yes. Let’s give them ‘needed’ tax breaks and take away ‘burdensome’ regulation so they can ‘create’ all those jobs.

‘A bill the House plans to vote on this summer would put a moratorium on significant new regulations until the unemployment rate reaches 6 percent or lower’.

“This is a sensible, common-sense piece of legislation that will help create jobs and is just part of the Republican majority’s relentless focus on the economy,” the spokesman, Michael Steel, said.’

Think it’s bad now?

Wait and see what America looks like (what’s left of America) after we do that.

Ed Schultz – ‘Where’s the jobs’?!

1. ‘The Very Rich Don’t Like Making Risky Investments’
‘The Mendelsohn Affluent Survey confirmed that the very rich spend less than two percent of their money on new business startups. The last thing most of them want, apparently, is the risky business of hiring people for new innovation’.

2. ‘The Very Rich Don’t Like Taking On Risky Jobs’
‘In fact, the very rich may not care about U.S. jobs in any form. Surveys reveal that 60 percent of investors worth $25 million or more are investing up to a third of their total assets overseas’.

‘Back home, the extra wealth created by the Bush tax cuts led to “worst track record” for jobs in recorded history’.

‘The true American job creator, as venture capitalist Nick Hanauer would agree, is the middle-class consumer’.

3. ‘The Very Rich Corporations Don’t Like Spending On America’
‘According to Moody’s, cash holdings for U.S. non-financial firms rose 3percent to $1.24 trillion in 2011’.

‘It has been estimated that the corporate stash of cash reserves held in America could employ 3.5 million more people for five years at an annual salary of $40,000’.

‘The biggest investment by corporations is overseas, where they keep 57percent of their cash and fill their factories with low-wage workers. Commerce Department figures show that U.S. companies cut their work forces by 2.9 million from 2000 to 2009 while increasing overseas employment by2.4 million’.

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – Mitt Romney Lies #6 – “what’s sauce for the goose is now sauce for the gander.”

Mitt Romney’s ‘true character’.

When Governor Romney gave State funds to a business that failed, it’s ‘free enterprise’.

When The Obama Administration does it, it’s ‘failed policy’.

Misinformation. Disinformation. Lies.

Mitt Romney and the Republicans real ‘Contract For America’.

“There was no hidden effort on the part of our campaign,” Romney said at a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa’.

‘The ad features then-candidate Obama on the campaign trail in 2008, saying “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”

‘But the 60-second spot failed to point out that Obama was actually quoting his opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain, at the time’.

November 23, 2011
‘Saying the ad “obviously got underneath (the Democrats’) skin,” the former Massachusetts governor maintained his team edited the ad intentionally to show “what’s sauce for the goose is now sauce for the gander.”

‘Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has revived charges about the failed solar company Solyndra as he assails President Barack Obama’ green energy policy’.

ROMNEY: “If the business failed, as it did, it’s the taxpayers that get stuck with losing a half a billion dollars.”
From : http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-romney-misses-mark-solyndra-claim-193816773–finance.html

‘A solar panel developer “that landed a state loan from Mitt Romney when he was Massachusetts governor” went belly up, the Boston Herald reports’.

‘The company, Konarka Technologies, “filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection and will cease operations, lay off its 85 workers and liquidate”:

‘The demise of Konarka could become a hot topic on the campaign trail because Romney personally doled out a $1.5 million renewable energy subsidy to the Lowell startup in 2003, shortly after taking office on Beacon Hill’.

‘Konarka is the second Massachusetts solar company, along with Evergreen Solar and Beacon Power, to receive taxpayer dollars under Romney’s tenure and subsequently declare bankruptcy’.

Paul Krugman on Mitt Romney – “He has been coming out with statements suggesting that he is, in fact, a dangerous fool”

 

“Is it possible that I have misjudged Mitt Romney? My take has always been that he’s a smart guy who also happens to be both ambitious and completely amoral; … [m]ore and more, however, he has been coming out with statements suggesting that he is, in fact, a dangerous fool”.

‘At issue is Romney’s recent thoughts about the $2 billion loss at Jamie Dimon’s JPMorgan. Here’s what Romney said’:

“This was a loss to shareholders and owners of JPMorgan and that’s the way America works Some people experienced a loss in this case because of a bad decision. By the way, there was someone who made a gain. The $2 billion JPMorgan lost someone else gained”.

‘There’s a kind of predator-sense to that — one man’s thigh can feed a lion for a week’.

Wisconsin Recall!! Followed by Wisconsin Indictment!!

‘On the Young Turks Friday, David Shuster claimed that he is almost certain that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be indicted in the coming months. Shuster later clarified his claim on the Take Action News Facebook page’:

‘According to lawyers familiar with a Milwaukee criminal corruption probe, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is now a “target” for prosecution’.

‘The legal sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Walker faces “serious legal challenges,” including a “possible indictment” regardless of the gubernatorial recall election results on Tuesday’.

‘The investigation began in 2010 when Walker served as Milwaukee County executive’.

‘Six people have been charged, with accusations ranging from campaigning for Walker on government time to embezzlement. 13 other Walker associates have been given immunity from prosecution in exchange for their testimony in the case’.

‘This week, Governor Walker acknolwedged he has now transferred $160,000 from his campaign accounts to a legal defense fund. Mr. Walker confirmed the money is strictly for his own defense and not for any current or former staff’.

See : ‘Gov. Walker’s legal defense fund questioned’
‘Tom Barrett, is asking Walker to explain why’.

“He is the only governor that has a criminal defense fund. I demand that he tell the voters of this state who is paying those criminal defense bills,” Barrett said’.

‘Walker would not reveal the reason he has a criminal defense fund’.

‘Lawyers for Governor Walker recently appeared at the Milwaukee courthouse but refused to say why they were there. The lawyers have also refused to comment on the Governor’s status in the investigation’.

‘It would be nice for Walker to be indicted before the recall election, almost guaranteeing that he would lose, but there is little to no chance that will happen and it’s distinctly likely that Walker could win the election, then be indicted afterwards’.
