    Another stimulus?
    we know the extension of the payroll tax (the only reason he put it in place, it has done nothing)(made about 8.00 a week for me)
    75,000 75,050 14,938 11,119 15,129 13,60 2010
    75,000 75,050 15,634 12,231 15,986 14,356 2004


    you want to see a real tax cut?
    75,000 75,050 17,939 15,307 18,818 16,4382000

    Like I said he will act like his 700.00 a year cut will be the end of the world if we do not extend it and the GOP will be un patriot

    but the GOP gave us the 2400 a year cut in 04 from 00

    whats going o happen to nite?

    All you need to do is watch, but he will tell you the cost in an additional "campaign speech" some time after this speech that is supposed to expose his job plan that obviously he still doesn't have and will continue knocking republicans that have several.
    Unbelievable ...

We ah, face unprecedented, um, times and that, umm, calls for err, unprecedented a, a, a, action. The Republicans, are um, to uh, blame for all of our, a, a, problems. Now we, um, need to, ah, in, invest in our, um, in, infrastructure. The notion, that uh,um duh, we are uh, a nation in decline is err, um, wrong. Green jobs are the, um, uh future. Just look at um, uh, my record with eh, um, duh, so, sol, eh, Solyndra. We saved or um, created......a, a lot of jobs. We had an uh, earth, uh, quake right here in DC. It was Bush's "fault". If you um give me err, a few hundred uh billion more, I know that I can get it um right. Families are suffering. Invest, in, a, a, america. It's the um, right thing to do. We also, uh, need to,Um, extend the err, social security tax cuts. Thank you and God, um, uh, Bless America.

    From what I've heard, it will be primarily tax cuts targeted at businesses to help get them hiring. Assuming the GOP vote in favour of it (good luck!) it won't work. Businesses are not hiring due to a lack of cash.

    The American Jobs Act is:
    •based on bi-partisan ideas;
    •it is fully paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes and asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share; and
    •it will have an impact on job and economic growth NOW — just as soon as Congress acts.
    •Every day, people in this country are working hard to meet their responsibilities. The question now is whether Washington will meet theirs.
    •The time for obstruction and gridlock is over. Congress needs to put country ahead of politics.
    •The American people know that the economic crisis and the deep recession weren’t created overnight and won’t be solved overnight. The economic security of the American middle class has been under attack for decades.
    •That’s why President Obama believes we need to do more than just recover from this economic crisis.
    •The President is rebuilding the economy the American way — based on balance, fairness and the same set of rules for everyone from Wall Street to Main Street where hard work and responsibility pay and gaming the system is penalized.
    •It’s an American economy that’s built to last and creates the jobs of the future, by forcing Washington to live within its means so we can invest in small business entrepreneurs, education, and making things the world buys, not outsourcing, loopholes and reckless financial deals that put middle class security at risk.

    Note the old saw about closing corporate loopholes and asking the richest Americans to pay their fair share. The top four percent of earners pay roughly fifty per cent of the taxes the Government receives. The bottom fifty per cent of earners pay no tax and a goodly per centage receive money back from the Government instead of their paying in. The English language doesn't seem to make any sense in this case, but then this nation used to be a nation of laws once, too.

    "by Mark Memmott

    Ever since President Reagan's 1982 State of the Union, part of the story of presidential addresses to Congress has been who gets invited to sit with the first lady in the gallery.

    Reagan's A-list guest was Lenny Skutnik, who two weeks earlier was among the heroes who helped pull people from the icy waters of the Potomac River after an Air Florida jet crashed shortly following takeoff from National Airport (now known as Reagan National Airport).

    Since then, presidents have invited both heroes and individuals who help illustrate points the presidents wish to make. So when guest lists are released, it's instructive to take a look. They can offer clues to what's coming.

    The White House just put out the list for President Obama's jobs-focused address this evening. Those who will be in the gallery with first lady Michelle Obama include:

    — Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric. He's chairman of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. So look for Obama to again stress the importance of technology, research and development.

    — Steve Case, who co-founded America Online and is, the White House says, "one of America's most accomplished entrepreneurs and philanthropists." He fills the "American can-do/entrepreneurial spirit" slot.

    — Darline Miller, CEO of Permac Industries, a Minnesota company that makes "precision parts for customers worldwide." The president talks a lot about the importance of exports.

    — Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. Labor's a big part of Obama's base, and the president talks a lot about the need to create more jobs in industries that produce things, not just services.

    Albert Green, CEO of Kent Displays. The Ohio company has developed "No Power LCDs" for eReaders, eWriters, electronic skins and eCard displays. The president often points to the job-creating potential of America's innovative small businesses.

    — Jan Heister, president of Premier Tooling and Mfg. in Peosta, Iowa. She can give the president another small business success story to talk about. Also, she's a nurse by training who switched careers. He often talks about the need to be flexible


    — Philip Maung, founder of Hissho Sushi in Charlotte, N.C. In 13 years, the White House says, Maung's company has grown into "a dynamic foodservice and distribution company managing and operating more than 400 sushi bars across the U.S." Another success story to tout..."
