SORT BY Relevancy
Like a dog with a bone, those who dictate policy for their puppets in Congress will not let go of the idea of using the issue of the national debt to impose austerity measures on Americans in order to continue to feed on corporate welfare provided at the government trough through taxes paid disproportionately by the less well off.If you haven't figured out what that means, you will want to listen to this episode of Taking Back America, where we discuss the relation between national debt, the American system of corporate welfare, and the means by which the economic elite who rule America intend to continue to strip the wealth of America to the bone.Our guest on Tuesday, October 22 at 3 PM PST/ 6 PM EST is our resident economic expert Karl Eysenbach, who blogs at Old New Left on OpenSalon.com.This show will be rebroadcast on November 2 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to educate the American public on true costs of corporate control of the US government.Know the truth and the truth will set us free.
There are hundreds of thousands of former government employees who are having a difficult time finding work. The fault of the job loss is political. Laying off government employee helped keep unemployment high over the last 5 years. The GOP governors are practicing austerity as part of a plan against PBO. The plan was constructed Jan 20, 2009 by a group of GOP congress members. The plan was to make PBO a one term president. The GOP failed. Laying off government employees offered other even more to the GOP. They could save pension funds; make government smaller and therefore easier to privatize; and create poverty as a method to anger citizens into voting for any GOP because of a bad economy.
Well the GOP fight against PBO is not over, but the fight over high unemployment is over. PBO says 2014 is the year of action. My belief is we are in the 1st year of an economic boom. My suggestion to government employees who lost jobs over the last 5 years of PBO's administration: Take back your jobs. The GOP has thrown everything they can at the public. We united and we are still standing. This is the year to take back your jobs. Do it for yourself. Do it for America.

Guest - Tim Harcourt, "The Airport Economist"
Conservative Republicans would have worldwide economies adopt further austerity measures to generate financial growth. There is no historical precedent for austerity ever leading to eceonomic growth - in fact, it always leads to contraction.
We'll talk about how the austerity myth is being pushed by conservatives, and how it affects working, middle class people in Wisconsin and beyond.

Once upon a time the American dream was for whites only. Then after slavery was abolished and laws begin to be put in place where jobs for Negroes became reality, the American dream became all American. Well it appears that the American dream wasn't meant for all Americans, and by hook and crook, people in government with help of people operating corporations and ma an pa businesses, the American dream is too far from reality for far too many people. Corrupt politicians and corrupt CEOs joined forced in 1973 and created the American Legislative Exchange Council. This body of business owners and politicians wrote and passed laws that leaves groups of people out of luck when it comes to laws. This same group, ALEC are chipping away at laws for which battles have been fought and people have died. citizens have been brainwashed through media to believe the major troubles with America today is because of the president. The people blaming government are latching on to rhetoric and being repetitious without knowing facts, and frankly seemingly, without caring about facts.
The biggest problems facing Americans today are man made. The biggest reason these problems continue to exist is Americans will not register and vote. Every problem within our borders can be resolved with voters. Problems exist not because of government, but because of corrupt politicians. Austerity is a GOP practice. GOP Governors fire federal employees and tighten budgets causing layoffs across states. Congress blocks bills that are the difference between life and death: Veterans bills, medicaid expansion, jobs act bills, infrastructure, unemployment extension, universal background checks. GOP actually signed a contract with Grover Norquist pledging never to raise taxes on business. This corruption harms people and to end the corruption is to fire the GOP, November 2014. Take away CEO control of our lives and our money.
