I think the writer doesn't fully understand how the government works and economics, but given the history of how Tennessee votes, I think it will be favorably received by most in Chattanooga.

First, the bill would be written by the congress. They would be the one that put the bill in front of Obama. Yes, he signed it. But without line item vetos, there is a lot of crap thrown into bills that ALL presidents sign for. If I lived in Chattanooga, honestly I'd be more pissed at the Tennessee federal representatives for putting that in the bill than the President for signing it.

I also have two parents that are economist, and I can tell you that they'd probably disagree with this paragraph:


Quote:

That’s because your jobs creation plans so far have included a ridiculous government spending spree and punitive tax increase on job creators that were passed, as well as a minimum wage increase that, thankfully, was not. Economists — and regular folks with a basic understanding of math — understand that these are three of the most damaging policies imaginable when a country is mired in unemployment and starving for job growth.

 I agree, it was a tough read for me and no disrespect, but I'm glad I don't live in TN if this is the way the majority thinks...

Coming from the Peoples Republic of Illinois, where our current resident of the Oval office learned all about entitlement creation and spend, spend, spend, shake the magic money tree, and spend more economic theories that he dragged to DC, I agree with most of what the author said.  We have the highest gas prices, along with other sin taxes (because with this president driving is a sin), unemployment rate much higher than the rest of the US and more.  We are a mess and so goes this nation, but hey, since everyone of his jobs cost the country millions is spending, he calls it success.

Kids can tell you want they want but it is your job as a parent to say no if it isn't what is best for them.  I think the same applies here he signed it so it was his decision and he gets the blame for anything he signs as far as I am concerned. On the other hand everything he has done he blames on Bush or someone else if it is bad and takes the credit if it is good.

I am proud to be from Tennessee our votes didn't help him get elected.

 He has cut everything that doesn't pertain to them such as vacation after vacation because as Michelle said living in the white house is like being in prison.

I'm not sure why you keep posting these anti-Obama and/or anti-Democratic Party posts in here. It's not a politics group. It's a mom of teens group where people need support, not divide. 

I'm not sure why I responded to this post. I still think the author of that opinion is in an idiot making the opinion based on the political parties instead of where the actual blame lies (i.e. the federal representatives, which are probably Republican so we don't want to point fingers that way). I thought it would be "safe" enough to point that out without getting a negative response. But obviously not.

So I've decided I'm just going to leave this one response at this, and I'm going to ask you to please quit making these posts that will polarize moms instead of trying to have us support each other.

Sorry if I offended you this was just something in our paper my boys as well as others in the neighborhood read the paper and watch the news.  It is not meant to divide, everyone in our family doesn't agree on the president  some were for and some against I even took my kids to the voting booth to show them how you vote it shouldn't matter who other people vote for or like everyone should decide for themselves that is what I taught my children.  We send each other articles for or against and laugh about it so again this isn't meant to offend anyone.
