The CPC Introduce Jobs Plan To The Left Of Obama’s…

Here cometh the CPC {Congressional Progressive Caucus} with an even more socially progressive and fiscally unsound plan than President Obama's for creating jobs.

The Utopian belief that government can {and therefor should} create jobs has always been the delusional belief of the progressives.

It matters not to the CPC and their supporters that history has shown central planning by the government has been nothing but a dismal failure wherever it has been tried.

But let not such considerations stand in the way of the emotionally driven anti business and pro Leviathan mentality.

Here, straight from the pages of that limp liberal rag The Daily Kos, for your reading amusement.

Through the summer, members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus listened to what people had to say about the need for jobs. Now, the CPC has unveiled a jobs creation framework of its own, providing President Obama with a much-needed left flank on jobs:

"We expect [Republicans] to be opposed," [Rep. Keith] Ellison said at a press conference. "But we've got faith in the American people to rise up and demand that Congress pass a jobs bill. So we're fundamentally optimistic, but we're also realistic. ... We do expect the American people are going to bring pressure to bear."

Skip

The CPC's Rebuild the American Dream Framework "outlines six areas of focus for immediate and long term job creation: Make it in America Again, Rebuild America, Lead the Green Industrial Revolution, Jobs for the Next Generation, Not Just Jobs—Good Jobs, and Fair Taxes—Shared Sacrifice." These are broad principles, but ones that translate directly to specific proposals:

The framework includes a $227 billion jobs bill sponsored by Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) that aims to create 2.2 million jobs through funding for school improvement, police and firefighter services, local healthcare providers, the Early Head Start program and park-improvement services.

And of course the CPC plan, in furtherance of the class warfare progressives always fall back on managed to fit it into their plan nicely.

Schakowsky’s proposal would be funded by separate legislation, also sponsored by her, that raises taxes on millionaires and billionaires.

No, it won't pass in this Congress. But it lays the groundwork for better policy and politics, giving voters and constituents another vision for what a responsible jobs policy could look like, demonstrating that as good as many of President Obama's proposals are, they aren't the ceiling on what could be done to benefit America's workers and economy.

For those of us who see government, aka Leviathan, as the larger part of the problem rather than part of the solution this is a call to arms... oops, I mean a call to meet our obligation. The obligation to defend the framework of our Constitution and the limited government it was crafted to insure.

As a reminder. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry is in fact nothing more than statist of a different color. One who will grow Leviathan in equally as offensive a manner as Obama, and or the CPC.

  1. The private sector is not creating enough jobs right now. The country is in need of physical and instutional development. Therefore, now we be the perfect time to get people back to work while performing jobs that need be done.

    There's nothing unconstitutional about that. And there is NOTHING you could point to in the constitution that says otherwise.

    There is nothing in the intent or history of the Founders, at least no great number of them, that would say otherwise either.

    So why you think this is a constitutional issue is beyond me.

    Progressives BUILT this country. Conservatives and Libertarians did NOTHING but take advantage.

    Wow. I'm speechless. I mean, I personally know so many Libertarians and Conservatives who regularly demand reparations and/or entitlements due to them by the American people based on their race, and due to their sexual orientation, and due to the number of bastard children they bear, and due to their gender, and due to their non-JudeoChristian religion, and due to their illegal status in America.

    I have never seen a Progressive or a liberal or a Democrat ever seek to take advantage of all the hard work the Progressives put into founding America.

    Nope. Never. Not once. Nope.

  3. I'm not talking about silly nonsense like that, which simply isn't true anyway (conservatives and libertarians are not better or more productive or more independent people than anyone else).

    I mean, LITERALLY, TANGIBLY, PHYSICALLY, PROGRESSIVES BUILT THIS COUNTRY. Without the efforts of the progressive America, whiny, spoiled little conservatives and libertarians would not have had the opportunities they have in this great nation.

  4. jmj - You are beginning to annoy me. And that takes quite a bit of doing these days.

    Suffice to say your... "Without the efforts of the progressive America, whiny, spoiled little conservatives and libertarians would not have had the opportunities they have in this great nation." Is simply bulls*it from one of the biggest bullsh*ters I believe I've ever heard from. You!

    And given my conservative libertarian life experience, which I'll put up against your whinny a*s experience any day of the week I DO TAKE IT PERSONALLY.

    Bye bye sweetie....

    Actually, the people who built this country were closest to "conservative" than anything else.

    You really have no idea what you are talking about here.

    Um....sure. I wouldn't hire a liberal like you even if it meant you would work for free. Give me a solid Conservative or Libertarian any day.

    Besides, since you're a liberal, surely somewhere along the lines you could file a discrimination suit against me, force me to hire you (like Affirmative Action of sorts), go on MSNBC or The View and lament how your life is so rough, then quit my business a few weeks later and go back on the government teat of entitlement.

    Conservatives are more productive. We understand the value of money, how to guard it, how to steward it, and because of even this simple display of common sense, we are light years ahead of liberalism and its spend spend spend mentality.

    Again, you couldn't PAY ME enough money to hire a liberal. It wouldn't be worth it.
