A Liberal Vision For America – From Do Nothing Republicans to ‘Let’s Do Something’ Democrats – ‘Fired Up Democrats Unveil A List Of Bills They Will Pass If They Take Back The House’

midle class jumpstart1

‘House Democrats are on the warpath. They’ve upped the ante against House Republicans by coming up with an entire slate of legislation meant to address the actual concerns of actual citizens’.

They’re calling it Middle Class Jumpstart’.

‘It’s meant to jumpstart the middle class and those trying to get into the middle class’.

‘House Democrats are promising to pass this legislation within 100 days a Democratic House Majority’.

‘They say the Jumpstart puts the middle class ahead of special interests. Jumpstart has three prongs: Good paying jobs, support for women, and affordable and accessible education’.

‘The Democrats’ Make It In America plan’:

‘Republicans voted to give tax breaks to companies that ship American jobs overseas’

‘Democrats will introduce the “21st Century Make It In America Act” to provide tax incentives for creating good-paying jobs here at home’

• ‘Republicans blocked legislation to make long-term investments in our nation’s aging highway system and opposed creating clean energy jobs of the future’

‘House Democrats will pass the “Build America Bonds Act” to boost job growth and modernize America’s infrastructure by building roads, bridges, broadband technology and investing in clean energy initiatives – paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes’

• ‘Republicans refused to raise the minimum wage but gave massive tax giveaways to corporate special interests and the ultra-wealthy’

House Democrats will pass the “Fair Minimum Wage Act” and the “CEO/Employee Pay Fairness Act” to deny CEOs the ability to claim tax deductions for pay over $1 million unless they give their employees a raise’

‘For education, Dems promise to pass’:

‘House Democrats will pass the “Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act” to help Americans refinance their college loans to new, lower rates, and will increase access to Pell Grants for higher education’

• ‘House Democrats will pass the “Strong Start for America’s Children Act” to increase access to effective early childhood learning’.

Republican Conspiracys – ‘Tennessee Drug Tests Welfare Applicants, Discovers Less Than One Percent Use Drugs’

welfare drug testing

Oh….That can’t be. Why all them welfare people just sit around and smoke crack…..I’ve seen it!!!!!

‘In July, Tennessee began a drug testing program for applicants to the state’s welfare program’.

‘Since then, just one person has tested positive out of more than 800’.

‘Applicants have to answer three questions about drug use to get benefits, and if they answer yes to any of them, they get referred to urine testing’.

‘If the result is positive, they have to complete a treatment plan and then take another test. If the second comes back positive, they get cut off from benefits for six months’.

Those who refuse to take a drug test in the first place can’t get benefits’.

‘In the month since it began, six people submitted to a drug test and just one tested positive out of the 812 people who applied’.

‘Four were turned down for benefits because they refused to participate in drug screening’.

  • That means a positive rate of 0.12 percent for those who took part in the screening’.
  • ‘That compares to the 8 percent of state residents generally who use illegal drugs’.

Turn Wisconsin Blue – ‘Scott Walker’s Broken Jobs Promise Just Came Back To Haunt Him’

turn wisconsin blue2

‘Democrat Mary Burke released a brutal new attack ad targeting Wisconsin governor Scott Walker on Wednesday, hammering him for failing to deliver on his promises to create jobs’.

‘The 30-second spot, titled “Absolutely,” quotes Walker’s campaign pledge to create 250,000 new jobs during his first term in office, and his insistence that he wanted to be held to it as a campaign promise’.

‘It hasn’t worked out. Wisconsin lags behind the rest of the nation in job creation, and as of late June, Walker had only hit about 40 percent of his goal’.

“Broken promises, dead last in jobs…Scott Walker’s not working for you,” the ad concludes’.

Republican Hero’s – ‘Ted Nugent mocks ‘unclean dipsh*t’ Native Americans: Whites ‘stole their land’ is ‘bullsh*t’

ted nuggent1

To Ted Nuggent, if you cancel his concert because of his long rants on political issues in his concerts, then you “hate all Americans that produce & live the American Dream”.

‘Conservative rocker Ted Nugent on Thursday lashed out at Native Americans who protested one of his South Dakota concerts, calling them “stinkyass unclean dipsh*t protestors.”

‘Earlier this summer, Nugent had been scheduled to appear at a casino in Worley, Idaho, but the tribe canceled after learning about his history of racially inflammatory statements’.

“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” the rocker said late last month. “By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as people, but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people.”

‘Since then, at least three more concerts have been canceled due to pressure from Native American groups and other progressives’.

‘And on Thursday, Nugent took to his Facebook page to complain about Native American protesters from the United Urban Warrior Society in Rapid City who showed up at his Wednesday event in Sturgis’.

“WE ARE ON OUR JET NOW HEADING FOR TOLEDO RIBFEST JAM AFTER AN INSANE INCREDIBLE OUT OF BODY ULTRAROCKOUT at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis SD!” Nugent wrote, according to Media Matters’.

“Simply astonishing gig! 4 stinkyass unclean dipshit protestors that admitted they hate me AND ALL WHITE PEOPLE THAT STOLE THEIR LAND BULLSHIT!!”

See, it aint me they hate, they hate all Americans that produce & live the American Dream. Simply insane!”

Joe lost to a write in candidate and Sarah quit after 1/2 a term.

‘Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller reminded Republicans of why they desperately hope he fails to capture their party’s nomination, when he joined the growing chorus of Republican candidates calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment’.

‘Miller weighed in on the subject during a Chamber of Commerce forum with fellow candidates Mead Treadwell and Dan Sullivan. The Alaska Dispatch News reports’:

“In the mix of anti-federal and anti-Obama statements, Miller went beyond Sullivan and Treadwell, calling for impeachment of the president”.

“I think we all agree that Obama’s out of control,” Miller said, adding that the president is acting almost like a dictator”.
