Franken’s Support of ObamaCare Will Reduce Employment in MN

Franken’s Support of ObamaCare Will Reduce Employment in MN
Equivalent of 50,855 Jobs Could Be Lost

A recent report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) detailed that ObamaCare will cost the economy the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs by 2024. A new state-by-state analysis by the Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) shows that ObamaCare will have harmful effects on employment and the workforce in Minnesota.

In 2009, when trying to justify ObamaCare, Senator Al Franken gushed, “I’m proud of what we’re doing, I’m really proud.”

It is difficult to reconcile Franken’s words in light of the news from the Congressional Budget Office that makes clear that fewer people will be employed and fewer hours worked because of the unpopular law.  According to the new ATR analysis, it is estimated that ObamaCare will reduce employment and cost Minnesota the equivalent of over 50,000 jobs.

An editorial in the Wall Street Journal made clear how this news is politically harmful to Senators who championed the law like Al Franken:  “All of this is one more contradiction of the arguments that were used to sell ObamaCare. The law would reduce health-care costs and shrink the deficit, you could keep your health plan and your doctor, and businesses could hire more workers and be more competitive. All of this is turning out to be false, and now we learn that the law is a job destroyer that is removing rungs from the ladder of upward economic mobility.”

Hopeless: Job Corps Slams Door on 30,000 Young Adults

by Tony Lee

President Barack Obama campaigned last week to promote his plans for job training and job creation that he claimed would expand the country’s middle class, fully aware that the Job Corps program had suspended enrollment in January due to gross bureaucratic mismanagement of the country’s largest job-training program for low-income youths, particularly African Americans.

The freeze started in January and is expected to last until June 30. That did not stop Obama from making lofty promises in his State of the Union address last week about job creation.


Okay then..

Brothers blow up house while celebrating lottery win with drugs

Well? Has a helluva point here..and I do not disagree at all with him!!

Report From the US Constitution Free Zone

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
****************I got to thinking recently.  (THAT is ALWAYS dangerous!)  If, as the DHS insists, I live in a Constitution Free Zone of America, and they can do as they darn well please inside this zone, then it also means I can do as I darn well please inside the CFZ, too. Huh?
Say what?

Mexico wants what?

A registry of American Gun Owners.? SO they can what?

They cannot even control their own corrupt nation and they want this?

Tell them to talk to Holder as he knows what tehy need to! He ran the guns to the cartels!!


Is the Government Scaring Web Businesses Out of the US?


Onerous regulations by the Federal and in some States, the State government, cause businesses or those thinking about starting up think long and hard about the hoops, fees and regulations they have to go through, jump through or try to figure out how to get around are worth it…

The smart ones appear to look elsewhere..

We have unelected bureaucraPs mandating regulations and laws that only duly elected by the People politicians should be passing.

Fees which are in effect poorly disguised taxes placing burdens on start ups and present businesses and then we have..

Unions, supported by the left and the NLRB (another “regulatory board”) burdening businesses….and not just Corporations, but small businesses which form the babone bone of our economy and provide the most jobs..

But the left, government and unions blindly ignore that in the name of our environment and “workers” rights as they drive this Great Country into the abyss of socialism…

Like Greece..

Formerly Great Britain..

And those in power ignore it…only mining for votes at all costs..

Molon Labe….


The Left, Obama and Senate Democraps…

Really do not want any job creation outside of what they can control….

If so why are they stopping this?

USPS broke. Do we really want another bailout?

But of course!! We need to burden the taxpayer with even more failed debt.


Is the Democratic way!!

Of course when I have no more to give I may really be upset!

But none seem to care on the Right or Left..

Vote them all out and start over in 2012!!!

The People whom should have the Taxpayer funded Golden Parachute pension plans seen so often amongst Public Unions….Should be the People.

I should contribute to my future, not yours!!
