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.

Made it possible to refinance for homeowners who could not pay mortgaged thereby reducing the amount of foreclosures on the market. He has kept interest rates low by the govt lending at low rates, so people can afford to buy more house for the money. He has slowly been increasing employment. Also, the middle class has continued to keep their tax breaks increasing their amount of spending money.


Quoting jcrew6:

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.

 This is a bunch of baloney. Stop whining and get real. Obama has had 4 freaking years to "create" jobs as you say. There are no more jobs now than there were when he came into office and there are fewer people working than when he came into office.  How's that working for you?  Obama care is one of the reasons people have lost jobs and businesses are not hiring.  He has absolutely NO investments that are making huge profits nor should he. His green agenda is a HUGE failure with more than a dozen  businesses he gave our tax dollars to going bankrupt. Investing in business is NOT the job of the government.  These classes and so called aid you say Obama has to help people get jobs has been in existance for years.  It's nothing new. We have always had retraining programs.  Don't fool yourself. It's YOU who doesn't have a clue.

Just the fact that Romney were to be elected will give businesses the incentive to invest in their businesses and hire more people. Presidents don't CREATE  jobs. He will create an atmosphere that fosters job creation.  Without all of Obamas useless and backwards regulations, (he's holding back over 600 new job killing taxes for after the election) taxes and loads of uncertainty businesses will hire and people will start up new businesses and they will hire.

This is the problem with some people. They think someone is supposed to "get" them a job. Someone else has to make it happen because you are poor or disadvantaged in some way.   It just doesn't work that way. These people have just as much ability to go get a job or make a job as anyone else. Need an education? Go to college or trade school. The "poor and disadvantaged" get grants they can live off of (and many do)while going to school along with theri housing assistance and food stamps.   These are not the people who need help.

When businesses feel they can stay in business after hiring then they will hire and not until then.

This and don't forget to add that obama wants to tax everyone in what adds up to about 98% of earned income.


Quoting broncfan:

Ohhhh, here we go.

Obama can have training classes, resume classes, or even pick your nose classes.  If there are NO JOBS none of this matters.  Can you not see this? 

Romney's plan is to help business grow.  What happens when business grows?  THEY HIRE MORE PEOPLE

Tia, the things you list do not create jobs, just tell me how a interview skills class creates a job? Oh you can't, not surprised..  If BO knows how to create jobs he should have been doing it for at least the last 2 years. 

BO is in over his head, he had not a clue of what to do.  You and your vote for BO are going to hurt you and others like you for years to come.

 I respectfully disagree, rcc. I have close, personal friends who work in real estate . The market is flooded with foreclosures and short sales. Banks aren't lending money as freely as they were. Too many regulations and uncertainties. The predatory lenders that got us into this mess are now refinancing. Slippery slope.

Many of those who are unemployed have given up. The numbers are skewed.

The middle class is hurting the most, due to inflated food and gas prices....savings accounts are shrinking as a result.

So many of the MR supporters here cite how they are struggling and can not find work, BO has not hleped them and they and their families can not survive another 4 years of this...are those the folks that you're addressing here?

Your whiny post makes no sense- Are there jobs or not? Should lazy people take those jobs or not? Which is it? No jobs and BO is to blame or available jobs that lazy, whiny people who need to "get real" should be taking?

Many large corps have paid zero Corp tax in the last few years- and still jobs are scare. I guess you think we (the tax payer) should pay companies to employ US citizens-pretty hard to pay less than ZERO.

I'm selling a house, and am in the process of buying a house. The market has definitely picked up here in San Antonio, but other areas may be lagging more. Indicators are there though that nationally new construction is up, and housing has stabilized, albet at lower rates than at the housing heights, so we will still take a loss here when we sell.

Oh, and I do agree the middle class is hurting. I just think Obama has an overall better plan for the middleclass. I know, I am possibly deluded, but I will go cast my vote for him tomorrow. No worries though cause I am in TX and we know which candidate those electorial votes will go for. (-;

 Yes, I recall that. Have you sold your home yet? How long has it been on the market? Did you make the purchase of the second one contingent on selling it? Sorry, forgot to ask those last time. :-)

One of my best friends is trying to refinance. She has stellar credit and it's been 2 months. The system is clogged up.
