Republicans Hate Small Businesses

Sure, we heard Republicans talk the talk, but when it comes to small businesses, Republicans turned their backs and voted “no” on a bill that would aid small businesses.  They are only for tax breaks for Corporations and Wall Street Banks.  When it comes to helping small businesses, they say “no”.

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Thursday rejected a bill to aid small businesses with expanded loan programs and tax breaks, in a procedural blockade that underscored how fiercely determined the party’s leaders are to deny Democrats any further legislative accomplishments ahead of November’s midterm elections.

Republicans in Congress have done their very best in trying to block legislation that benefits the middle class, working American.  They take their orders directly from Rush Limbaugh, the drug addict.  Rush wanted America to fail and the Republicans are doing whatever it takes to make sure that America fails.

Pat Toomey is just another Republican set on fulfilling Limbaugh’s wish of a failed America.

Rick Santorum Loves Entitlements

You betcha!  Rick really enjoyed receiving his paycheck and health care benefits paid for by the taxpayers and then stealing from a small school district in Pennsylvania by lying about his residence.  Former senator Rick Santorum fought for torte reform while at the same time his wife sued two doctors.  Yeah, torte reform is good for everyone except the Santorums.  Now he is out their telling us to trust “Club for Growth” Pat Toomey, the thieving Wall Street Bankers’ best friend.  Why should we put our faith in anything that Rick Santorum says?  He was wrong when he was in the Senate and he is still wrong today.  Toomey would dismantle Social Security which means that old people will be back living in the streets or living with their children.  Social Security is one of the entitlements that Toomey wants to destroy.  The other would be Medicare.  Without Medicare, people 65 and older would have to choose between seeing their doctors and paying for their medications or buying food.  Toomey would vote AGAINST extending unemployment insurance benefits so if you can’t find a job, Toomey would just tell you, “Too bad, too sad, you lazy bum.”  Yet Toomey wants YOU to give him a job with excellent health benefits while denying the same benefit to his constituents.

The choice is clear.  Vote for Joe Sestak in November and PROTECT OUR RIGHTS.

And here’s a video showing Santorum disrespecting our President.  He told us that we were unpatriotic if we spoke out against Bush yet, he is calling our President Hitler.  Progressives were never this disrespectful.

What Republicans Are Really Saying

Republicans hate regulation so they will do anything and everything to dismantle regulations.  According to the Republican philosophy, we don’t need to regulation green house gases.  And Pat Toomey, the “Wall Street Warrior”, while serving on the House Banking Committee, helped write a resolution which lead to the repeal of parts of the Glass-Steagall Act that protected American’s financial investments.

Toomey’s first order of business as a freshman congressman: getting some good committee work. His Wall Street credentials—as well as the Republican majority—helped him score a seat on the House Banking Committee, where he sits on the Capital Markets, Securities and Government Sponsored Enterprises subcommittee as well as the Domestic and International Monetary Policy subcommittee. Toomey has already helped draft House Resolution 10, a proposal to roll back some of the Glass-Steagall legislation of the 1930s. Not surprisingly, Toomey is virulently opposed to unnecessary regulation. “The trend in deregulation, beginning in the early 1980s, is one of the biggest reasons for the sustained economic expansion,” he says. “I would like to see us continue to deregulate on many fronts, including the financial services industry.”

And what of the much-ballyhooed hedge fund regulation talk emanating from Washington lately? “It’s not clear to me that the problem with Long-Term Capital Management requires new regulation,” he says. “I think we need to continue to work on understanding what really happened there and what the magnitude of the threat to the infrastructure of our financial services industry was. Frankly, I think that the outcome was appropriate. The equity investors lost everything—and under the circumstances that had to happen—but the bailout essentially worked. I would be very leery about, and I will resist, any effort to impose inappropriate regulations as a knee-jerk reaction to what was a big problem but was essentially solved.”

Read more about Toomey and his Wall Street connections here.

The bottom line is this:  Republicans are against regulations (Banks, Oil/Gas Industries).  However, when deregulation creates problems (Bank Failures, Oil/Gas accidents, pollution), then Republicans want the taxpayers to bailout the banks and pay for the environmental clean up.

Pat Toomey is just another Republican that supports deregulation and he would have voted “Yea”, in favor of the bank bailouts.  After all, Toomey would not have wanted to place any hardships on his friends in the banking industry or on Wall Street.

Pat Toomey – The Corporate Tool

Here’s a little more on Pat Toomey…

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2010/2/23/839969/-Corporate-lobbyist-fundraising-e-mail:-Support-Pat-Toomeys-fight-against-the-populist-agenda

Looks like “Corporations” are not wasting time in supporting Pat Toomey for Senator from Pennsylvania. Check it out… the biggest sponsor is Caterpillar, yes, the one and the same that laid off hundreds of Americans and sent their jobs to China.

Pennsylvania needs jobs and Toomey won’t be bringing jobs to Pennsylvania. Toomey will be looking for the best bargain for corporations and if that means sending jobs overseas, well, then so be it.

Take notice Tea Party members and Patriot Party members, Pat Toomey will be supporting the “Corporate” agenda if elected. The only tea bags that Pat Toomey will be touching will be the ones he drops in his cup of tea. If the Tea Party and the Patriot Party want someone to represent their best interests and not that of corporations, then they better come up with a candidate because Toomey is already owned by Caterpillar.

The Real Pat Toomey Part 1

The Club for Growth, a Washingon Lobbyest funded organization endorses Pat Toomey because Pat Toomey believes in limited government.  Translated, Pat Toomey will do the following if elected:

  • Dismantle Social Security by handing over taxpayers money to the Wall Street Bandits,
  • Expand Death Panels by dismantling Medicare and Medicaid by creating a voucher system that will not cover the cost of Insurance premiums.  This is a hand-off of taxpayers money to Insurance companies.

Any Tea Party member that is tired of government handouts, will NOT vote for Toomey because Toomey talks the talk but he is nothing more than a Republican that rewards his rich friends with taxpayers money.  In the meantime, the average American gets screwed, again.  If you liked the Wall Street bailout, then you will love the Toomey Wall Street handover of our tax dollars.

Make room for your parents because when they lose their Social Security, they will be moving in with you.  As for any inheritance, that money will go to the Insurance companies.   That is what Pat Toomey offers.  He will be another suit in Washington DC, stealing tax payers money.  If you think the economy is bad now, it will only get worse if Pat Toomey gets elected.

Don’t let Toomey fool you by saying that he is center right.  Anyone that wants to put doctors in jail for treating their patients is NOT anywhere near the center and is a fascist.   Toomey is far, far right.

Toomey will take away our freedoms.

Here’s Toomey on the issues… he would restrict bankruptcy rules meaning, he voted to make it more difficult to file for bankruptcy.  Now that is helping Wall Street and voting against the best interest of the people of Pennsylvania.  Yes, Toomey wants to keep feeding those fat cat bankers big bonuses even though we want our money back.

Rated 20% by the ARA, indicating an anti-senior voting record. (Dec 2003)

Toomey is anti-senior.

President Weekly Address Republican lies Tea Party

Weekly Address – January 16, 2010

President Obama wants the banks to pay back the taxpayer.  That’s a good thing.  Will the Tea Party agree with the President or are they hypocrites that only complain about the Wall Street bailout and the deficit and still turn their backs on our President even when he does what they want him to do?  Which one is it?  I’m not convinced that the Tea Party members really know their history.  They could be acting on a fantasy especially if they relied on the common history books that were used in public schools as their source for information.

Massachusetts Senatorial Candidate, Republican Scott Brown who is supported by the Tea Party and Wall Street banks and other outsiders, opposes fees on banks that would payback the taxpayers.

Another thing, Scott Brown says that he will vote to repeal health care reform.  Be aware, this repeal INCLUDES doing away with Medicare.

The Midnight Thief

PA Senator David Argall was the chief architect of the 2005 “midnight pay raise” that included a 50% raise in his pension.  Besides this sneaky thievery of tax payers money, Argall also had one of the highest “per diem” while serving as a Legislator.  When asked about his expenses, he whined about living 1.5 hours from Harrisburg.  Boo hoo.

Now this crook and liar is planning on running as the Republican candidate in the PA 17th Congressional District.   The only jobs that David Argall has ever had were jobs where he could collect his paycheck from the taxpayers of Pennsylvania.   In March of 2009, David Argall won his current seat as a Senator in Pennsylvania.  In 2010, he wants to move to Washington DC as a member of the House with a larger “per diem”.  Of course, being a Republican, Argall supports the GOP plan to privatize Social Security and decrease Medicare benefits. If Argall gets elected to the US Congress, you better believe that senior citizens will suffer loses while big banks and big corporations will be allowed to steal more money from the tax payers.  It’s the GOP way and Argall will vote to decrease Medicare benefits and vote to privatize Social Security.

Looks like Argall is a quitter, just like Sarah Palin.  What’s with these Republicans?  Seems like when the going gets tough, they either quit or give themselves a very large raise.

News Release: League of Women Voters of Berks County

In a campaign mass mailing by the Republican candidate for Berks County Coroner there is the following statement:

“FACT: Nick Bybel MD is the most qualified candidate for the office of coroner. (League of Women Voters Forum, 9/29/09)”

While this statement may have been made during the Candidates Forum by a candidate or a supporter, it was not made by the League of Women Voters of Berks County moderator. We are demanding a written retraction of this misleading statement from the Elect Doctor Bybel Corner Committee and the Berks County Republican Committee, immediately. We further demand that this retraction be mailed to the mailing list which received the erroneous material as well as a retraction to appear in the Reading Eagle.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that does not endorse candidates but provides forums to inform voters.  The League does not support or oppose any political party or any candidate, but does and always has taken stands on issues which its members have studied.

According to our By-Laws, Article II, Section 2, The League shall not support or oppose any political party or any candidate. (copies available upon request)

The League of Women Voters began formally as an organization in February 1920 in Chicago, six months before the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the right to vote. Our mission is to LET PEOPLE KNOW. MAKE PEOPLE CARE. HELP PEOPLE ACT. The purpose of the LWV is to create in citizens a sense of responsibility for knowing about governmental problems and doing something about them. Through study and action on issues affected by government and through its services to voters, the League seeks to encourage the informed citizen who actively participates in government.

Top Issues of the Values Voters Summit

The Values Voters Summit straw poll placed former governor, Mike Huckabee as the top choice for President in 2012.

Here is the list of the top four issues from this gathering of Conservatives:

  1. Abortion
  2. Protection of religious liberties
  3. Same-sex marriage
  4. Tax cuts.

It’s very interesting that these “values voters” are so concerned about protecting their rights and at the same time want to take away rights from others.  Religious freedom is already protected by the Constitution of the United States and 95% of Americans already received a tax cut.  According to the “values voters” , women that find themselves pregnant and for whatever personal reason discover that they cannot continue the pregnancy, their right to an abortion should be eliminated and the right to equality under the law should not be given to homosexuals.

What is it with these so called “values voters”?  They are so totally against anything that involves sex and yet, if it wasn’t for sex, they wouldn’t be here.  To them, nothing is more sinful than the sexual act.  Wish they would stop doing the sexual act so that there would be less of them.

September 11, 2009

Eight years have passed since that awful day when terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center buildings killing 3000 people.

It’s difficult to listen to the memorial service and to view pictures from today’s memorial.  It brings back the memories of the fear and the anxiety and all the other emotions which took place that day and the several days following.

After the emotions settled, I began to wonder, why didn’t our President address the American people right away? We needed to hear some words of assurance from a leader and the only leader that stepped forward was Mayor Rudy Guiliani. It didn’t matter if he was competent or not. What matter was Rudy gave the appearance that someone was in charge. In the meantime, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were no where to be found. They both went into hiding. The idiot, Denny Hastert who was the Speaker of the House at the time, was no where to be found either.  This left Guiliani in front of the TV cameras.

Something just wasn’t right about this whole thing. I don’t believe the story that was given to us by the “press” and I don’t believe the conspiracy theories of Alex Jones either. Because of how the President and Vice President handled this crisis on the day of this event, I believe that the truth lies somewhere in between. Bush and Cheney did many vile things while in office. Abandoning Americans on September 11, 2001 was THE worst thing they did.  When Americans needed someone to turn to, they were missing.

To show disrespect for those who died and for their surviving family and friends, Glenn Beck and his 912/teabaggers plan on marching on Washington, DC on September 12, 2009 to protest the tax cuts that they received from President Obama and to tell Congress that they do NOT want affordable health care coverage.  These fools are tools for big corporations, the insurance companies and for people like Limbaugh, Hannity, Malkin, Rove and Beck who make millions of dollars by spitting hate over the airwaves.  Little do these Beck worshipers realize that the media hate mongers will never do anything that benefits them.  The 912/teabaggers/birthers/deathers are slaves to Fox and Ruppert Murdoch is smiling all the way to the bank… the very bank that received a government bailout.  How ironic.  If they only had a brain.

Bonus reading here.  Cheney acted as President and directed the government on September 11, 2001.  He would not allow Congressional members to show their faces to the media.
