More wisdom from Joe Biden

By Tom Quiner

Joe Biden is a gem. His articulate expressions of liberalism will be with us for a lifetime. images-1Here’s another morsel:

“Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.” –Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008
Oh, and for the record, the percentage of employed Americans is at its lowest point since the Carter years. So much for jobs.
How do you spell failure? 0 – B – A – M – A.
Alternative spelling:  B – I – D – E – N.

    The problem that the Republican Party has is that it takes more than the President to create jobs. And the perception (whether true or not) is that the House with its Republican majority is seen as doing nothing (or even worse) to help the problem.

      We’re on the same page. It DOES take more than the president to create jobs. It DOES take more than Congress to create jobs. Jobs are created in the private sector. Government cannot create jobs, they can only suppress job creation. What has the Obama government done to try to create jobs?

      Much …

      1. Pass a zillion dollar “stimulus” bill. 40% of it had to be borrowed from China, adding to the deficit.
      2. Increase taxes on America’s most productive workers.
      3. Increase the minimum wage. They want to do it again.
      4. Pass a new entitlement, Obamacare, which increases employers’ cost to hire new workers, and which creates an incentive to cut full time workers to part time.
      5. Increase government regulation geometrically in practically every area in our lives.

      Don’t tell me Republicans have stifled the Obama government’s attempt to create jobs. They’ve tried a lot, in spite of the Republicans, and it has all failed.

      Here’s the bottom line, Joe Coffee, their ideas HAVE been tried. They just don’t work. Worse, they hurt us working class stiffs.
