Republicans are the “economic royalists”. A note to the Tea Party, you will be left out in the streets, too, if Republicans gain control of Congress. These economic royalists don’t give a rat’s behind about you. The Tea Party members are nothing more than tools for these economic royalists.
Tom Corbett joined ranks with Sharron Angle and other Republicans in condemning workers that have lost their jobs and are unable to find jobs. The statistics are 1 job for every 6 workers so get in line and hope for the best.
Statement From Jim Burn, Chairman Of The Pennsylvania Democratic Party Regarding Tom Corbett’s Remarks On Unemployed Pennsylvanians
Pittsburgh: Tom Corbett’s insensitive and callous remarks claiming many unemployed Pennsylvanians “are purposefully remaining unemployed in order to collect benefits“, demonstrates how out of touch he is with the working families of our Commonwealth. Since becoming the Republican candidate for Governor, Tom Corbett has continually taken positions that lead on to believe he lives in a different Pennsylvania than the rest of us.
In Tom Corbett’s Pennsylvania there is no need for unemployment benefits because there are plenty of jobs for everyone. In Tom Corbett’s Pennsylvania there is no need for healthcare reform because the current healthcare system is working just fine. In Tom Corbett’s Pennsylvania we don’t need millions of dollars of federal stimulus money because we don’t need jobs and our roads, bridges and schools don’t need improvement. Hanging-out at fundraisers with oil and gas company executives, Wall Street bankers and other wealthy Republican contributors, Tom Corbett sees a different Pennsylvania than the rest of us.
Tom Corbett needs to visit the Pennsylvania we live in and immediately apologize the unemployed workers he insulted with his inconsiderate remarks.
Even the Republicans that are out of work are complaining about the Republicans in Washington that have denied the current unemployment benefit extension. It must be nice to have a job in Washington DC with a salary and benefits paid for by taxpayers.

The Tea Party candidates don’t care about these lazy Republicans. Put a Tea Party member in Congress and it will only get worse because they also want to dismantle Social Security.
Don’t let them fool you because the Tea Party and Republicans are the “death panel” parties.
Don’t let the Tea Party and Republicans make you feel demoralized. Get out and vote in November and vote Democratic because your life depends upon it.
John McCain has reminded us over and over again, that he is weak on the economy. Now he says that it is greedy Wall Street, you know, the Wall Street that he votes to protect by keeping it deregulated, that is causing our economic problems and he will put a stop to it if elected. That would mean that John McCain will be biting the hand that feeds him. Doubt that he would do that.
John McCain also praises the American worker. That is a great point, if you have a job. If you are one of the 6.3% of Americans that had to file a claim for unemployment insurance or the one of the other millions of Americans looking for work, you are probably scratching you head and wondering “why isn’t someone hiring me? I’m one of the ‘fundamentals’ that are strong in America? Fundamentals don’t put food on the table nor does it pay the mortgage or rent if you don’t have a job. It’s easy for McCain to make this statement because he has 9 houses and a millionaire wife. He can’t relate.
Barack Obama and Joe Biden have a real plan that will bring jobs back to this country and get Americans working again.

Tom Ridge was correct when he referred to John McCain as John Bush. Yeah, John McCain is more of the same. No maverick there unless you consider gambling with our job market, gambling with more wars, gambling with our health care, and gambling with Social Security as being a Maverick.
The American people have had enough of the last eight years of failed policies and poor judgment. Americans deserve better.
John McCain doesn’t feel the pain. We were told that our job losses are just “mental” and all we need is a “psychological” boost. Americans losing their jobs doesn’t put food on the table nor does it provide a roof over our heads. John McCain promised that he is NOT going to keep all the jobs in America.

Donate… let’s keep these commercials rolling.

Loomis has a posting about John McCain from the American Conservative. It is an eye opener and well worth reading.
