Claudia Tenney has a Jobs Plan, Kim Myers has suggested Government will lead the way. Given the results of the last 7 years in New York State and the nation, it is worthwhile to review where the candidates stand.
At the core of the Democrat Party, the President and the Democrat nominees, appear to have a view that Government is the primary source for jobs. The problem is doubling down on the very same neo-Keynesian policies that don’t work in the real world but fulfill the belief that Government is the answer to the issues facing the nation.
If President Obama can get this Robin Hood proposal passed, it would be the first time that the public understanding of ‘free stuff’ from the Government would be accurate to some degree. At the same time, this Robin Hood would also be the evil tax hungry antagonist of that fable – Prince John. Of course Prince John didn’t have the benefit of television and 30-second soundbites.
Thus getting a raise, a promotion, or changing jobs for a better paying one, can all cause the credit from the Government to decrease. The net outcome can be a hit to tax refunds or even requiring payment to the IRS for the difference after the refund is wiped out..
Here we have a partisan law, passes without being read, that the public has never wanted, touted as the great fix to healthcare insurance woes.
President Obama should be held to his fleeting campaign promise. Representatives in Congress should have their feet held to the flame of public opinion. America needs politicians bold enough to live up to campaign promises, strong enough to speak the will of constituents, and determined enough to blaze a trail down a path the nation hasn’t even seen in 4 years plus.
Perhaps this is why politicians and media stick to headlines on unemployment data. Looking deeper just highlights a reality that is not being addressed.
Only in review of the totality of the statements, interviews, voting record and debates will voters identify the candidate that best matches their views on who should lead the nation, and in what direction. We, at M V Consulting, don’t care who you vote for – just that you make an informed decision.
