Millionaires to be blissfully unaffected.
During last week’s debate on the Buffett Rule, the GOP complained again and again that the rule was a political ploy because it would only raise a few billion dollars every year. Also it would hurt the economy and possibly turn Grover Norquist into Grover Norquist HULK who bashes Republican brains with primary challengers made of pure Rubio.
This week the GOP is set let Stafford student loans interest rates double to 6.4% on July 1.
The logic is simple.…
The number you have reached is no longer in service...That is a picture of the (empty) Romney grassroots organizing office in Michigan, taken by the Michigan Democratic Party this morning. In their recent press release, they had this to say...
This economy we ruined. These wars we didn’t end. These deficits we created over 8 years. How dare this President not fix everything immediately!
When Mitt Romney realized he could only get the Republicans behind him by being George W. Bush’s biggest apologist, he must have known that would make him look like a fool.
How could he defend going around the world blaming everything George W. Bush did wrong on President Obama? It’s a blame Roosevelt for inheriting Hoover’s economy strategy. Who would buy such steaming, gelatinous bullpuck?
Fox News and people who got fat Bush tax breaks that’s who.…
Vice President Biden talks about the influence of Super PAC money & the importance of grassroots organizing
They got the dough, we got the GO(TV)
As I wrote about in my piece “Super PACs turn their attention from supporting candidates to destroying President Obama“, the conservative Super PACs are gearing up for a relentless smear campaign against President Obama and his administration.
These corporate funders have so much to lose by having a Democrat in the White House and so much to gain by having their “employees” (Republican politicians) in charge that they are willing to spend nearly incomprehensible amounts of money to grab the reins of power and retake the White House.
The only way to compete against this historic amount of corporate spending is pure, grassroots, neighbor-to-neighbor volunteer campaigning.…
Kicking cities while they're downMichigan Republicans passed a budget last year that gives businesses $1.6 billion dollars in tax breaks, paid for by slashing school funding and raising taxes on over half of Michiganders. Now, they are about to hand them another half billion dollars by phasing out the personal property tax (PPT). It's generally agreed that the PPT is not a particularly smart tax. It forces companies to pay taxes on equipment that they purchase which has the effect of encouraging them NOT to make capital investments that can help them thrive and grow. However, here's the rub: getting rid of it will take nearly half a billion dollars out of city budgets, many of which are largely dependent upon this tax. If you think the problem with bankrupt cities and Emergency Managers is bad now, this will make it worse. Have a look at this chart from the Michigan Municipal League's Replace Don't Erase website...
Liberal media, my assAs I have already written about, yesterday President Obama visited Michigan for a couple of fundraising events. The Associated Press, of course covered the event. How they covered it blew my mind.
GoosebumpsOne of the really cool things that they have at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan, is the bus on which Rosa Parks took her famous stand. Or sit, rather. Yesterday, President Barack Obama, another African American to break down barriers and make history, sat on that same bus and was photographed by White House photographer Pete Souza.
