Pennsylvania Issue…. Technology, Innovation and Creating Jobs

Except from Barack Obama’s Economic Policy….

Technology, Innovation and Creating Jobs

Obama will encourage the deployment of the most modern communications infrastructure to reduce the costs of health care, help solve our energy crisis, create new jobs, and fuel our economic growth.

  • Support Job Creation: Barack Obama believes we need to double federal funding for basic research and make the research and development tax credit permanent to help create high-paying, secure jobs. Obama will also make long-term investments in education, training, and workforce development so that Americans can leverage our strengths – our ingenuity and entrepreneurialism – to create new high-wage jobs and prosper in a world economy.
  • Invest in U.S. Manufacturing: The Obama comprehensive energy independence and climate change plan will invest in America’s highly-skilled manufacturing workforce and manufacturing centers to ensure that American workers have the skills and tools they need to pioneer the first wave of green technologies that will be in high demand throughout the world. Obama will also provide assistance to the domestic auto industry to ensure that new fuel-efficient vehicles are built by American workers.
  • Create New Job Training Programs for Clean Technologies: The Obama plan will increase funding for federal workforce training programs and direct these programs to incorporate green technologies training, such as advanced manufacturing and weatherization training, into their efforts to help Americans find and retain stable, high-paying jobs. Obama will also create an energy-focused youth jobs program to invest in disconnected and disadvantaged youth.
  • Boost the Renewable Energy Sector and Create New Jobs: The Obama plan will create new federal policies, and expand existing ones, that have been proven to create new American jobs. Obama will create a federal Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) that will require 25 percent of American electricity be derived from renewable sources by 2025, which has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs on its own. Obama will also extend the Production Tax Credit, a credit used successfully by American farmers and investors to increase renewable energy production and create new local jobs.
  • Deploy Next-Generation Broadband: Obama believes we can get broadband to every community in America through a combination of reform of the Universal Service Fund, better use of the nation’s wireless spectrum, promotion of next-generation facilities, technologies and applications, and new tax and loan incentives.
  • Protect the Openness of the Internet: Obama supports the basic principle that network providers should not be allowed to charge fees to privilege the content or applications of some web sites and Internet applications over others. This principle will ensure that the new competitors, especially small or nonprofit speakers, have the same opportunity as big companies to innovate and reach large audiences.
  • Invest in Rural Areas: Obama will invest in rural small businesses and fight to expand high-speed Internet access. He will improve rural schools and attract more doctors to rural areas.

I wouold like your response to allegations made by Morgan at PaPro.

(1) Why did you complain about him outing yopu, when it is clearly known that you are ?

(2) Why did you contiunue to accuse him of being a paid Clinton operative after he provided an explanation to indicate he was not?

(3) What do you know about Obama volunteers spying on Clinton HQs in Reading?

(4) What do you know about the tire-slashing incident direcrted at Morgan? He claims to have confirmation it comes from Obama volunteers. What do you know about this?

lvr – why did you come here making accusations about Obama volunteers and why would you think that anyone here would know anything about these accusations? Your questions are so stupid and inappropriate that they do not even deserve a response. If you don’t have anything constructive to say either in agreement with a posting or disagreement with a posting, then stay away. This is a progressive web blog and your comment is regressive and immature.

Another thing… you have a lot of nerve coming here and attempting to hijack a thread that presents information about Barack Obama’s Economic Plan with some bogus issue. Let’s see some police reports. What is the name of the sender on this supposedly dishonest email about another Democrat? Since when did comments become threatening to a blog owner, comments that can be deleted by the blog owner?

The all powerful woman did not force anyone to take down their blog. That was the choice of the blog owner. Some people just love to blame others for their own crazy behavior. It’s call transference. Look it up. This is something that neocons, like Bush and Cheney do all the time and I’m beginning to notice this same behavior in Clinton supporters.

This is another example of the “kitchen sink” politics synonymous with the Clinton campaign. This is just as good as the George Stephanopoulos flag pin question. I suppose driving down Penn Street with an Obama bumper sticker on your car constitutes “spying” on Clinton’s HQ, give me a break. Let’s try sticking to issues. Unlike The Pennsylvania Progressive, this blog is not about John Morgan.
