just got wiped out. More GOP posturing. From what I heard, not one GOP Senator voted for it. How can that be? Are these guys so split down the middle that nothing gets done?

All they care about is beating him in the election. Nothing else matters more. That should be obvious to even the casual observer.

It'll be interesting to see if the public will make the Republicans pay a price for their actions in 2012. Given the very short attention span of the average voter, probably not.

I disagree. They're going to get toasted, Obama will win and like it or not, for good or bad and consequences be damned, something will get done. At this point, I don't care what it is or what it costs (could it be any worse?) just. do. something.

We've never seen this before. The normal approach is to try to lose the next election.

Would you like to review the voting records of the GOP in Congress since he took office? Not only major pieces of legislation, but votes on routine appointments that took well over a year, slowing the day-to-day business of government down as much as possible then complaining about how slow things are?

I believe that the course that the GOP has chosen is called "leading from behind." Complain about and try and block everything that happens, but if something good comes out of it, try and take credit for it.

The GOP has had control of the House deep into this current session.

Can you please explain, in detail, the jobs legislation proposed and brought forth by the Republican Party since the midterms?

Sending Obama home would be the best possible jobs plan.

That's essentially what they're trying to do at the expense of the thousands of other workers in America. Killing thousands of jobs to put one person out of work.

seems like a risky bet, given the best they can toss out there is Mitt Romney. and if Obama wins and the GOP keeps control of the House? and the Senate stays pretty much the same? Four more years of this? We'll be screwed...

That one person must go.....He's killing us.

Take a look around. I'm not going out on much a limb saying that.

Let's say that is the case. Outside of just saying "he's killing us!"(Not directed at alloak) , shouldn't the opposition offer some sort of plan as an alternative? Or if he's voted out, will things magically get better?

He's killing us by extending GOP tax policy ad infinitum?

He's killing us by things like completely capitulating to the GOP on the debt ceiling deal?

Please tell us, what exactly IS the GOP responsible for? Anything? Y'know, when Bush was in office and the GOP had total control of Congress for 6 years, you guys blamed the liberals for everything then. It's all you guys do, blame someone else.

Why don't you and all the rest of the Republicans just come out and say that you could give a phuck about the unemployed? It would be so much more honest.

Apprently the second the election is declared for the GOP winner we will have 0% unemployment.

The GOP is willing to sacrifice the well being of a large % of our citizens just to get him out of office. I've never seen a worse bunch of slime bags in my life.

Cut taxes and reduce regulations so that industries can forecast more revenue and hire more or new people. The U.S. cannot afford to borrow more money for what is tantamount to another stimulus plan for failed industries like Solyndra. That little gem cost over fifty million dollars a job and resulted in a huge debacle.

Wasn't the first jobs plan $800 billion and change? Look where we are now. I think not spending another $450 billion with no certainty was a wise thing to do.

President Obama will probably win the election because the Republican candidates are sadly, the keystone cops but without the humor. It sure is tough being a Republican these days... oh well...

Business taxes have been cut several times since Obama took office, and more business tax cuts are part of Obama's jobs plan that the GOP just killed. Reductions of federal regulations have also been ongoing under the current administration. But those things alone just aren't going to do it.



Here's the list of 17 small business tax cuts that President Obama has signed into law --

From the Recovery Act, HIRE Acts, and Affordable Care Act:

1. A New Small Business Health Care Tax Credit
2. A New Tax Credit for Hiring Unemployed Workers
3. Bonus Depreciation Tax Incentives to Support New Investment
4. 75% Exclusion of Small Business Capital Gains
5. Expansion of Limits on Small Business Expensing
6. Five-Year Carryback of Net Operating Losses
7. Reduction of the Built-In Gains Holding Period for Small Businesses from 10 to 7 Years to Allow Small Business Greater Flexibility in Their Investments
8. Temporary Small Business Estimated Tax Payment Relief to Allow Small Businesses to Keep Needed Cash on Hand

From the Small Business Jobs Act:

9. Zero Capital Gains Taxes on Key Investments in Small Businesses
10. The Highest Small Business Expensing Limit Ever– Up to $500,000
11. An Extension of 50% Bonus Depreciation
12. A New Deduction for Health Care Expenses for the Self-Employed
13. Tax Relief and Simplification for Cell Phone Deductions
14. An Increase in The Deduction for Entrepreneurs’ Start-Up Expenses
15. A Five-Year Carryback Of General Business Credits
16. Limitations on Penalties for Errors in Tax Reporting That Disproportionately Affect Small Business

And from the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act:

17. 100 Percent Expensing

Federal Regulation Reduction Efforts
Posted August 31st 2011

President Obama issued an executive order in January 2011 that began a process of regulatory review. The executive order provides details on how agencies are to review regulations. The review process asks agencies to provide justification costs of the regulation, select an alternative approach to maximize net benefits, and specify performance objectives of the regulation under review.

As of August 2011, there are over 100 actions awaiting review. Agencies are to submit their reviews to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. So far, the review process will save businesses about $10 billion over five years.

The most substantial changes come in streamlined administrative procedures. For example, businesses will be provided with an electronic submission option for paperwork; hospitals will have fewer reporting requirements; and contractors of government projects will see an expedited payment process.
