I’ve never trusted this President from day one because I bothered to research his background unlike most of my fellow voters. I know how he thinks. The Democrat Party’s disturbing yet effective moral relativist streak goes hand-in-hand with its prevailing ideology, and the end result has been lies of increasing frequency and magnitude over the past 20 years. Fake jobs numbers and “you can keep your doctor” are only the latest, biggest. baddest examples.
The Obama Administration is just the culmination of the long-decline of a once-great political party.
Save Jerseyans, you might have noticed I have been quiet on the election front this cycle in my neck of the woods.
Some people have asked me if my silence was due to fear of the vindictive Democrats incumbents trying to hold onto their seats (Troopergate anyone?).
Please, I don’t fear bullies. Those who have read the few posts I have had time to write know that the real reason is that I unable to post is because I have been buried under the horrendous, job killing, money sucking, rights trampling, Democrat darling monstrosity known as Obamacare.
And those who have read my posts in the past know that I am a nerd who loves to dust off his double major from Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and analyze the hell out of stuff. And this year, in the hotly contested LD1 race, where polling shows that JOBS are the number one concern in the District, I was looking forward to getting my nerd on by putting each ticket’s job plan through my Hoya Saxa inspired analysis then comparing and contrasting them.
Nerdvanna! I hit a snag, however. Only one ticket actually has a plan! Nerdvanna denied…
As if you needed another reason to vote against Question #2 on your November 5th ballot, Save Jerseyans, here’s a March 2013 clip which’ll scare the hell out of you.
Take it away, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA):
I want some of what she’s having, folks. It must be nice to go through life unrestrained by reality! Unfortunately for the rest of us, we have to live in the real job market quite unlike the former ivory tower occupant from the Bay State.
His PAC is launching a major $1 million television ad buy in support of Cory Booker (D-Twitter).
Here’s the TV spot:
Let’s drill down on my favorite part for a brief moment. A little background is in order: Booker and Bloomberg have jointly appeared together on numerous occasions; here they are on Meet the Press back in 2009 discussing unemployment in their respective cities…
Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 1 (SCR No. 1) is on the ballot this November 5th, Save Jerseyans, and its passage would hold dire consequences for each and every Garden State resident.
For months, we’ve discussed the ins and outs of a minimum wage hike right here at Save Jersey. If passed, this amendment is bound to send more businesses out-of-state and full-time workers to part-time work. Some things in our world are subjective. Mathematics isn’t up for debate.
Do you still need a visual? No problem: the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has launched an online calculator to aid New Jersey’s business community as they prepare for what’s coming at them if November’s ballot goes as expected.
It’s not pretty.
Click here to try the calculator for yourself; then share it with a business owner (or their employees) in your own life. We’ve got one month to spread the word…
And notwithstanding the historical precedence that these workers will be compensated for their lost time when the partial shutdown inevitably ends.
Here’s a little reflection for you on Day #2 of the government shutdown: as is often the case, liberals are asking the wrong questions as Americans collectively wonder what’s wrong with their government.
Yesterday I wrote: “The lesson from Newark is that attempting to replicate this corporate-welfare-based development strategy nationally from the U.S. Senate would be very painful for American taxpayers — and would fail to create jobs.”
The major tax hikes he proposes would wallop the U.S. economy with $1.486 trillion in higher taxes. He does propose some minor tax reductions, but the net tax hike is still well in excess of a trillion dollars. The money goes to vast new federal stimulus spending in the form of a so-called “National Infrastructure Bank,” expansion of the corporate-welfare Export-Import bank, and other spending programs that will, like in Newark, reward the rich and politically well-connected while failing to create a significant number of jobs.
Even his proposed “tax cut” element of the plan — echoing Obama’s call to lower the corporate rate from 35 percent to 28 percent — provides relief only to the biggest companies that are C corporations and, like Obama’s proposal, is dwarfed by tax hikes.
Just for liberal good measure, he also proposes universal federally-funded preschool for children starting at 3, a new “national college trust fund,” a so-called “smart grid” federal taxpayer-financed upgrade of electric utility infrastructure, and other spending pet projects. The spending proposals are not quantified, but would likely cost even more than the $1-trillion-plus of new taxes Booker proposes, meaning his plan would also increase the deficit.
