President Obama How to pay for a BIG Jobs Bill
For everything you want in the jobs bill be specific. For each job bill proposed, link a specific tax loophole to close to pay for it. Go straight down the line, leave no one untouched within the tax code. Gut the tax code to help Americans get back to work. Now that's shared sacrifice.
Tell the American people we are proposing lets say 200-500 billion dollars in a infrastructure bank to help rebuild our roads and bridges. We are using a public private relationship with companies to do this. We are closing these tax loopholes (,then present the loopholes to be closed, and how much money the US will NOT have to borrow to finance this bill). This bill is paid for.This will put lets say 4-5 million construction workers back to work. NOW, In every community,all ages, in every state. Rebuilding America.
When people are working, then they pay taxes, when taxes are paid America;s bills are paid. We don't have to borrow, the debt gets paid down. Mainstreet make money because Americans have money to spend. To buy homes and cars and all that they need. We have to do this. The financial hole we find ourselves in was greater than we thought it was.
When I took office it was listed 7.8% unemployment, then it was revealed and revised up to 9.7% unemployment. After we had put our stimulus package in place. Had we known the true numbers we would of went bigger from the get go.
Mr President direct this message to all the construction workers and people who work in the construction field. Not the news media. Talk to the American people who will need these jobs, not congress. If you do this right. The American people who need these jobs will flood congress and hound their congressmen/women to pass your legislation. Go Big. Americans want leadership and purpose. Give it to them. Then the American people will stand with you and will share the fight with you to get things done.
Democrats need some new exciting messengers. The one's we have now stink. Mr President you can't do it all. Hire some people to get the word out. Who can put the bills language in laymans terms. Where the average person can understand it.
And Democrats, get off your ass and help the President and the American people instead of bitchin about everything wrong. Talk to the American people about all the great things that are right about this Administration and America. Trust me there are plenty. The only complaint I have is Democrats want President Obama to do all the work, and they stand by and criticize. Stop it.
President Obama said Yes We Can, not, Yes I Can.
