OBAMA MAKING DEALS WITH HOSTAGE TAKERS AGAIN. I thought we did not make deals with hostage takers? Obama did when he allow the tax cuts for the rich to continue for two more years and he is making another deal with hostage takers. Again he is caving in to GOP demands which is looking out for big corporations by continuing to fatten them up with tax cuts. He is kicking Society Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education and unemployment to the curb and then kicking them under the bus. For once I would like our president stand with the weakest of Americans. GOP is asking the poorest of America to live within their means? LETTING TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH DIE IS NOT "RAISING TAXES." Does The Government Create Jobs ? Da King on October 19, 2010 First, there are the public sector jobs created directly by government spending like the ones Republican candidates are applying for. Where would our economy be without the 3.1 million public school teachers who educate our children or the 2.6 million servicemen and women deployed around the world to protect us or the 13 million local government employees who make sure our neighborhoods are safe, our streets are taken care of and our infrastructure works.
