“PRESIDENT OBAMA IS RIGHT”


“In case you just missed the President’s speech from the White House Rose Garden this morning, I wanted to make sure you saw this key quote:

“It is wrong that in the United States of America a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker who earns $50,000 should pay higher tax rates than somebody pulling in $50 million.

Anybody who says we can’t change the tax code to correct that, anyone who has signed some pledge to protect every single tax loophole so long as they live, they should be called out.

Bloomberg: Economy Woes Will Lead to ‘Riots’

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned Friday there could be “riots” in the streets of U.S. cities if the economy doesn’t pick up soon.

The lack of jobs is making people increasingly desperate, Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show…

“We have a lot of kids graduating college, can’t find jobs,” Bloomberg said, according to the New York Daily News. “That’s what happened in Cairo. That’s what happened in Madrid. You don’t want those kinds of riots here…”

“The damage to a generation that can’t find jobs will go on for many, many years,” the multimillionaire mayor said.

Bloomberg, an independent, said President Barack Obama is not to blame for the counry’s economic problems, saying they “developed over long periods of time.

He praised the president for coming up with a proposal to try to fix things.

“At least he’s got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not,” Boomberg said. “Now everybody’s got to sit down and say we’re actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side.”

ELIZABETH WARREN, A FIGHTER FOR A NEW AMERICA 2


Elizabeth Warren has announced she is running for the old Edward Kennedy Senate seat coming from Massachusetts.  Mrs. Warren came to national prominence through a career of her evolving fighting for middle-class and working class values and issues. We have come to know her from her work for the Obama administration where she created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which remains under attack by republicans who fear giving the people their rights and a fair shake. They refuse to fund the agency. To watch a sample of her work click here.

REPUBLICANS HAVE QUESTIONABLE ETHICS


Definition of ETHIC

1
plural but sing or plural in constr : the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation
2

a : a set of moral principles : a theory or system of moral values

REPUBLICAN LEADERS IN THE CONGRESS RESIST THE PRESIDENT’S EFFORTS TO CREATE JOBS WITHOUT A GOOD REASON.  THEY SEEK TO PROTECT RICH EMPLOYERS AND ENTREPRENEURS FROM USING THEIR $1TRILLION IN IDLE CAPITAL TO CREATE JOBS FOR THE 25 MILLION OF JOBLESS AMERICANS.  THEY WERE GIVEN TAX CUTS TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO CREATE JOBS.  IN AUGUST 2011 NO JOBS WERE CREATED.  UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT 9.1% STILL.  HOW CAN AMERICANS NOW LOOK WITH PRIDE, RESPECT AND HONOR AT SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY), SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH), REP. ERIC CANTOR (R-VA) AND REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WI)?

WHY DO THEY CONTINUE GOING ON TV AND SPOUTING THEIR RHETORIC ABOUT NO TAX INCREASES ON THE RICH.  THERE IS NO LOGICAL OR ETHICAL REASON FOR THE CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT NOT TO RAISE TAXES ON MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES, OUR EMPLOYER CLASS.  THEY HAVE NOT KEPT THEIR CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO CREATE JOBS IN THIS COUNTRY.  CONGRESS SHOULD FORCE THEM TO REPATRIATE THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEY HAVE IN BANKS OVERSEAS.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THAT THE PRESIDENT AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ARE THE HONEST AND ETHICAL BROKERS OF THE PEOPLE’S TRUST, CONFIDENCE…AND TAX MONEY! HEAVEN HELP US IN OUR TIME OF NEED!  SHORT OF THAT, THE PRESIDENT NEED EACH OF US TO CONTACT THE LEGISLATORS FROM OUR STATE AND DEMAND THEY RAISE TAXES ON MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES FORCING SHARED SACRIFICE, A CONCEPT THAT IS ANATHEMA TO THEM!

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR CLEANER AIR? 1


Dear GoodOleWoody,

If you ever wanted to know what’s wrong in Washington, look no further than the latest pro-polluter monstrosity moving in the U.S. House – the “TRAIN Act.”

Instead of putting people back to work, this slick and underhanded legislation will make people sick and cost lives by blocking important clean air standards that have been under development for decades.

Please Take Action Today: Tell your members of Congress they should reject the dangerous TRAIN Act and let EPA do its job.

How Much Longer Do We Have to Wait for Cleaner Air?

It has been more than 20 years since the overwhelmingly bipartisan passage of the 1990 Clean Air Act, which specifically instructed the EPA to limit mercury, acid gases, and other hazardous pollution from America‘s coal-fired power plants.

After the federal courts threw out a weak, Bush-era power plant rule for mercury, the Obama administration released its proposed Mercury and Air Toxics rule in March of this year.

After nearly five months of receiving input and comments from the public about this rule – which broke overwhelmingly in favor of setting the strongest possible standard, including more than 85,000 comments from EDF activists – EPA is set to finalize the rule this fall.

But, even before EPA finishes its work, the polluter lobby has launched a full-scale offensive to stop this rule in its tracks.

Take Action Today: Tell Congress to let EPA do its job.

The polluter cynicism here is almost too much to believe:

  • They claim they need more time to prepare for this rule even though they have had more than 20 years.
  • They claim they can’t meet the pollution standards even though the technology is widely available and 17 states already require their coal plants to limit mercury emissions.
  • They claim this rule will hurt the economy even though economic analysis finds that for every $1 spent to clean up toxic air pollution the public receives up to $13 in public health and other benefits.

Every year we delay implementing the Mercury and Air Toxics rule will cause up to 17,000 premature deaths from the hundreds of thousands of tons of hazardous air emissions emitted by coal-fired power plants every year.

We need your help to stop the TRAIN Act in its tracks.

Please take action today.
