Once again the Republican Party has proven that they are not the party of economic growth.  Studies of the recent legislation passed by GOP Speaker Boehner’s House of Representatives were analyzed by both liberal and conservative groups and the projections are alarming:

"The new GOP budget proposes cutting non-security discretionary spending by $81 billion relative to the president’s $478 billion request for 2011.  Non-security discretionary cuts of this magnitude would likely result in job losses of just over 800,000.” – Rebecca Theiss, Economic Policy Institute, a nonprofit Washington D.C. think tank, created in 1986 to broaden the discussion about economic policy to include the interests of low- and middle-income workers.

"The spending cut package that passed the House of Representatives would have a deeper effect” on economic growth than the spending cuts proposed by President Obama.  “Under the House passed spending bill, the drag on GDP growth from federal fiscal policy would increase by 1.5% to 2%” in the second and third quarters of 2011 as compared with current law. -- Goldman Sachs proprietary report.

“A Republican plan to sharply cut federal spending this year would destroy 700,000 jobs through 2012”, according to a report, by Moody's Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi, one of the advisors to John McCain in his failed presidential bid.

Meanwhile, the same Republicans that pledged that this last election was all about “Jobs, jobs, jobs” have failed to introduce a single bill that will create jobs.

Who keeps voting for these fools?

The Huffington Post Daily Brief ran an interesting article today with respect to budget cutting and what programs many Americans would like to see funded or cut.

There is also a survey that you can participate in to see how you would do budget cuts. It's fun and actually makes sense - it's how we should fund the government in the future - use this form when you pay your income tax. That could save a large portion of the $100 billion the government spends just to collect the tax in the first place.

The following is a copy/paste of a portion of the article:

If the public actually set the public agenda, we'd be cutting the deficit much differently than either the Democrats or the Republicans are proposing to do it.

That's according to a comparison of President Barack Obama's fiscal year 2012 budget proposal, the cuts for the remainder of fiscal 2011 proposed by House Republicans, and the results of an ingenious study of public opinion where a representative sample of Americans, asked how they would reduce their deficit, were presented with actual budget numbers and worked their way through a series of tradeoffs.

While the details vary, the White House and Republican leaders both basically want to reduce the deficit by cutting social programs, preserving defense spending and raising taxes relatively little or not at all.

The public, by contrast, would do it primarily by cutting defense spending and imposing significantly higher and more progressive taxes on the rich -- while at the same time dramatically increasing spending in such areas as job training, higher education and humanitarian aid.

In other words, the public takes a considerably more humane view of spending than either party, is considerably less beholden to the military-industrial complex, and doesn't seem to care if the super-rich get a bit offended.

Here's a link to the site (I did a copy/paste and it worked - so give me a break.

This is the correct screenwriting contest site.

It's important to admit when your wrong or can't copy/paste very well. Apparently I can't.

It's in alphabetical order - go to the T's - you'll find my name and Bee City Ascension." Proof that HF, JB and JC are liars on almost everything, including this little, unimportant fact - weird if you ask me.

Jobs and Economic growth in the private sector are improving- the stats are coming in and they're very positive considering the Wall Street crash and the Bush Presidency almost destroyed this country. Interesting to hear how the Republicans are so concerned about our debt, but just approved (along with some idiot Democrats) the $35 Billion dollar contract for an Air Force Refueling tanker. Isn't that like buying a new Mercedes when you can't make the house payment?

And how many pro-oil folks add that cost into the price of protecting the flow of oil into our gas tanks? Because that's what we're doing around the globe- protecting "American Interests" at a cost of 57% of our budget.

Yeah, yeah...but what about those overpaid public employees?

Liberatedwoman I will not post this where you can delete, like obammie and crew the truth exposes you for who and what you truly are and want no one to read it. Your latest blog demonstrates how immensely ignorant to the fact that America has to make deep cuts and face huge sacrifices you, blog rats along with democrats and imbeciles called liberals are. The years of welfare and government handouts leave you with the false belief that there is no end to money. Thinking Republicans gave into obama allowing the government to continue operating is the utmost idiotic, moronic, imbecilic retarded thing I have read in years! It was allowed for the good of the people. If the situation were reversed he democrats would not have put the people first and let the government run out of funds. No amount of proof is sufficient leaving no choice but to trample the ignorant into meaningless existence. As you try to appear knowledgeable in postings, the grossly inferior grammar is comical. The subnormal logic delivered by you provides it own explanation.

A few days ago Justcountry put a provable fact based post in your blog and you quickly deleted it. The post brought points that blew your blog out of the water. JC used my ending, my pet saying and why I do not know as JC was doing great without it. You provided no explanation except that it was stupid. By those rules anything you or the blog rats post is destined for the dustbin.

You and the blog rats attacked JC, against Bee Pic rules, after you deleted it along with others you and the blog rats continued to attack JC because you were humiliated. JC continues to do so, that is why you blog rats are ballistic. The illustration that JC provided about blog rats inability to understand what is read was priceless. Having accomplished the same many, many times I was not surprised how easy it was. I profited monetarily until there were no more patsies.

I notice you have tried to improve, obviously that was another miserably failed undertaking of yours. Nevertheless, you share that outcome with the democrats and morons called liberals.

Let us look at what you post; not one is based or substantiated by fact or is so ludicrous it is filed with the rest of your unintelligible drivel.

JC has been challenged, meeting everyone head on, turning the tables leaving the blog rats exposed as always as they cower failing as usual. However, they want credibility, not that’s revealing but most of all comical.

I am aware JC can defend himself. Some chose to accuse JC and I are the same person so I asked JC to allow me to address this *#$*#$.

Let again invite, challenge or whatever word it would take to bring you bunch of #)#$ _@ to a live open forum. I know you won’t just as obama, democrats and liberals you will stay were it is safe for you, or think it is.

You continue to attack the Bee Pic on multiple blogs and continually allowed breach of posted rules. So why do you continue to cry and throw tantrums against the editors?

Also noted you and the blog rats are too scared to challenge JC's blogs.

IMPEACH THE ILLEGAL ALIEN MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!

THROW THE ILLEGAL ALIEN MUSLIMS CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIEN AUNT OUT OF AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, what ever happened to country's good ol' boy cowboyspeak? Remember when he signed on as neither liberal nor conservative, and if "you've got a burr under yo saddle, missy, well we all jes gonna put that little doggie out of its misery."

Now he's sounding more like far right head of the three-headed Gorgon monster known as hellfire.

He had a DI. More like a DUI.

Oh, yeah, I'm a liar.
