What Makes You Think Romney Will Create Jobs For Poor And Americans?

Posted by   + Show Post

 Ok..

This completely baffles my mind??

Romney claims he wants to create jobs that gets the poor off welfare right??So what are these jobs and how does he propose to create them??

Now he knocks Obama on creating Obama care.....yet he has investments in many small blue collar companies that he makes huge profits from.....out sources....fires American workers...and sells to China....and has the Chinese living in sweat shop conditions and Americans without income,food,homes,and medical??Now if these people did not have Obama and government help the would be homeless.How does Romneys plan help these poor people??

The thing that most of you may not know or even care about is that Obama has a program to get folks off welfare and working.Many of the things offered is job training,and resume classes,and job interview classes,access to the labor dept that has newspaper classifieds,computers,and job employer listings ready to hire.

So what isnt Obama Not doing to create jobs??

Sometimes I think the republican ideology has no empathy for the less fortunate...and can be very self centered.We live in America....lets give equal rights for the American dream for everyone.

Not everyone can become an entrepreneur and become Donald Trump...is Romneys Richy Rich cartoon dreams really a reality??Wake up and smell the coffee.

Tia, no one here is trying to bash you, just trying to get you to see that the things you are saying are really being thought out all the way by you. Obamacare, yes, something has to be done about our medical situation but do you think driving people into debt to do it is a responsible thing to do? Now think about Obama's campaign speeches, where he says, " I want to do...." "We need to..." "I will..." These are many of the things he said in '08 and he hasn't done or even tried to do these things. He lies and blames others when things go wrong, but right there to take credit when they are good? 

Listen, people are going to say all kinds of things, especially in an election. It is our job as responsible citizens to check out these claims that are made. You have to go to several sources, not their own websites, but non-partisan sites. As it sits now, it appears that in your eyes Obama can do no harm, while everything Romney does is against the American people. In fact, let me take a Romney moment and say that unless I feel that you at least hear what I'm trying to say, I have other things I need to do and I'm probably wasting my time just explaining to you about 2 sides to every thing. I'm not even trying to change your mind, just trying to open it up.

What specifically did Obama do to improve the housing market?


Quoting rccmom:

Housing sales are up, we are exporting oil, unemployment is slowly going down, and even more would had been accomplished if the Repubs would have prioritized the country over their party. Success has not been as quick as we all want, but Romney has not convinced me that he has a better plan. In fact, I feel Romney has an inferior plan.




Quoting jcrew6:

Fact. Obama has failed.






Quoting rccmom:

Magic. Romney is a wizard.

War- boots on the ground.

Other than that, CUSTOMERS with money who desire goods and services create demand and jobs are produced.

Yep.

So many are falsely putting their hope in a VC- a man who has made money monopolizing companies, extracting assets and eliminating companies and jobs.

Wake up, folks. Your hatred for A man is enticing some of you to make a really poor decision.

Quoting didine70:

Companies are not going to hire more if there is no demand.  What will Romney do to change that? We need to find a way to have middle class people to buy more. Right now every body is waiting. Companies are sitting on their cash. Middle class people don't have money to spend. The rich are spending more, but a lot of that is spent abroad, not in local investments.

And yes, government can create jobs. Firemen, civil servants, policemen etc. are all government jobs. Plus I see the federal money hard at work in my area : they have been rebuilding roads, bridges etc....and this means jobs for the builders.

Quoting godotherightthi:


Those back to work programs were also available under republican administrations as well.  If Obama can pass blame for extending the Bush tax cuts by continuing to call them Bush Tax Cuts, than he cannot take credit for continuing worker assistance.


I can attest to this.  I was laid off in Jan of 08 (while Bush was still Pres.).  I had to go to classes in March of 08 (while Bush was still Pres.) to learn all about how to fill out an application, how to interview, how to update my resume, how to get to various online job search sites, how to use the Job Center, how to apply for all the various programs at the welfare office, and more.  This was required in order to get my unemployment.  I was told that this was only because of 2 things:  my age, and the fact that the line of work that I was in (laid off from) would not be viable, in other words it was being phased out.  Retraining was encouraged, but there was no funding to help with that.  It had all been allocated to others already.  I kept/keep checking back every 3 months or so.  Amazingly, for the last full 4 years, there has not been any funding available to me for any retraining.  Imagine that! 



Obama has not done anything that was not already being done.  He has only made things worse for more people.

Oh and there is also Congress to consider- that big body of people that appropriate spending and legislate policy.

Remember the goal of the golden congress of 2010?- to make BO a one termer via obstruction. they have done a fine job.

See, we can all deflect-

Here you go again. I thought Obama and Romney were the same according to you? Obama has proven his shovel ready jobs were full of shit. More people on unemployment. More people put of the workforce. More people earning less. Obamanomics has failed america. Obama doesn't deserve another 4 years.
