who thinks obamas claims that the JOBS ACT wont add to the deficit is true ?
i dont knowabout this.its possible the it might add to the deficit.he may believe that bringing troops home will save and this is a replacement and that due to bringing them home that this Jobs act wont add to the deficit.but that math may be off as this jobs bill may cost more than the price of bringing troops home.either way i wanna know your opinions on obamas claim that it wont add to the deficit.
Answer: If he lays out specific offsets, tax increases, tax loopholes closed and other actions that will pay for the costs of the program, then there is no reason not to believe him. Instead, you should be skeptical of idiots who claim that it will increase the deficit, just because it's Obama and they don't like anything he does. Think about it, how many misinformed Faux News viewers are still claiming that the health care reform that was passed will add to the cost of government? All the objective, conservative (in the standard, non-political sense) analysis by the CBO and other organizations all verify that the health care reform package will REDUCE the federal deficit. And yet, people who claim to be against higher deficits oppose a program of changes that will lower the deficit, on fiscal responsibility grounds. Hey, it's not like conservatives ever let facts interfere with any particular mantra they want to repeat. Beyond the basic government expenditures, we can't forget this is a JOBS bill. More people working, = less people collecting unemployment, food stamps, etc, = more people spending money, = more demand in a recession caused by lack of demand, = more money spent by regular folks to buy food and goods, which is the most stimulative thing there is for an economy, = more people paying taxes. Even conservative economists agree that this is how it works. Even conservative economists in conservative think tanks acknowledge that the first stimulus caused there to be millions more Americans employed than there would have been if it did not happen. If the original stimulus had a shortcoming, it was that it was too small, and too much of it was in the form of GOP-demanded tax cuts instead of actual stimulus.

Why is Obama advocating that jobless Americans sue on the basis of discrimination in the American JOBS ACT?
"The exact wording of the proposal suggests that should a business with 15 or more employees neglect to hire an applicant on basis of “the individual’s status as unemployed,” it would be deemed “an unlawful employment practice” under the American Jobs act. Should rejected applicants chose to seek legal action, they are capable of suing in the same way that applicants can currently peruse claims for discrimination based on race, sex and religion."
What is your take on the bizarre piece of legislation?
Answer: To destroy small business. If you have 16 employees you are still a small business. To provide a stimulus program for trial lawyers or any other type of lawyer. I think it is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard.

Why won’t Republicans allow a vote on the American JOBS ACT?
Republicans are at it again. Filibustering -- again. If they allowed an up or down vote, it would pass. But they won’t allow a VOTE. Why is that? It’s paid for...fixes bridges, roads, schools, and puts 2 million people back to work. So...why not at least allow a VOTE?
How does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act cost jobs?
Republicans claim it is a devastating job killing law, but I have never heard any statistical information, or any economical data that shows that this law will actually "kill" any jobs.
How exactly does this law kill jobs, and how many jobs has it killed?
Where is the case study, or the statistical data used to make the claim that Republicans are making?
Do they even have any data to back up their claim?
How does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act cost jobs?
Answer: It mostly doesn't. Hawaii has had a law requiring employers to provide insurance for nearly 40 years and we have some of the lowest premiums in the country for the required level of insurance. Yes, some companies will have trouble and will get tax credits and subsidies. Most people and companies will be fine with it. \ Very few job losses--actually an increase in the need for primary care providers. There are no sources of reliable information that say otherwise.

What is the point of this new "American JOBS ACT"? Doesnt this contradict what Paul Krugman said?
Krugman and other Keynesians said that the reason the stimulus failed was because it was too SMALL. Even if he was correct that the stimulus was too small, the "American Jobs act" will be half the size of the first stimulus. So if the second stimulus is only going to be half the size of the first one what is the point of it?
Answer: The situation now is a lot different than it was 2 years ago. The point is to create jobs and boost the economy. Besides, Klugman is not the president. Obama is.

Why did experts say the American JOBS ACT would create more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline?
If you look at the facts, the American Jobs act would have created more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline, so why did cons filibuster the AJA and are whining about the pipeline being delayed so peoples water wont be contaminated?
Seriously when I hear cons complain I dont understand it, its almost like they dont know anything about the issues.
Answer: Because Republicans refuse to support job creation if it involves any kind of tax increase on the wealthiest Americans. Keeping rich people's taxes as low as possible is the number one priority of the Republican Party. Endangering essential, natural resources to help the oil industry make more money, though, is perfectly okay in their book. Republicans don't really care about the job creation from the constructing the pipeline; that's just part of the sales pitch.

why white people act uppity even if they were poor or doing non-professional jobs?
Im not saying people who are poor or doing menial jobs such as being a waiter or a grouser should act or feel inferior or something but one would expect more courtesy or humility from them after all they are in the servicing industry. And most of the time only white people who do these Jobs act like they are CEOs of a multinational or something; other races who do these jobs dont usually act like that especially if they were asians or mexicans.
Answer: I have noticed this too, however, I do not know the reason why. I do know that there are many white kids (like myself) who treat customers with respect when doing poor/menial jobs. Me and my colleagues were finishing up high school and going on/graduating college though, so we knew this was not the be-all, end-all. We also live in California tho...where ppl r happier lol But anyways, some ideas that come to mind could be: -parents forced them to get a job, and the kid is a spoiled brat so they act rude. -they were not taught etiquette/manners/courtesy -Hollywood exemplifies white people as being wealthy...so kinda have to live up to expectations -Upset about other things (we have a lot of family/health issues as well as insecurities...again due to the media. White ppl have the least-beneficial traits...so natural blonde hair means you burn easily, our pale/thin skin means we are more prone to skin damage etc., and our colored eyes are more sensitive to the light (sunglasses were probably made with us in mind lol) so we might not want to spend all the time necessary to take care of our delicate features and then hate the wrinkles, sunburns, squinting etc. which makes us upset about our appearance as well as other issues XD) So hope this helps because it is coming from a white person! ps: I have met asians and mexicans who were very rude in low-wage jobs as well...although many asian families discourage their kids from working while going to school, and many mexicans who are not mexican-american would be working jobs where they do not need to interact as much....also latino culture is WAYYY friendlier. I used to live in South America and serious lol
