Within that jobs plan there are popular individual proposals -- a CBS/New York Times poll on Friday showed majorities supported all the components tested. It has the feeling of a brick-by-brick strategy: the President can build his standing on the economy by singling out issues that are popular on their own."

    Now, where are all your polls that show a majority of voters disapprove of Obama's jobs plan?
    Wow 45%? Keep buying the Obama rhetoric that has been proven to be totally full of lies.

Try responding to the actual results not the Obama lies.

    LOL! I've read about the GOP jobs plan - Trickle Down Economics 4.0. More of the cut taxes for the wealthy and cuts in regulations of the banks that have failed us for the last 30 years, that have more of the middle class in poverty than at anytime since the great depression.

    Good luck on selling that again to the middle class!

    You don't have to read about the Obama jobs plan for all you have to do is look at the results, over 2 million jobs lost since Stimulus One was passed. Amazing how you buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. Says a lot about you.

    I've provided 4 polls that show a majority support the jobs plan vs zero polls shown that say different. Thanks for playing!

    And we've read Obama's "jobs" bill. It's more trickle down economics to unions.

    You provided poll numbers none of which are over 50% and show that those people are just like you, buying the Obama rhetoric and ignoring the Obama results.

    You're questions weren't directed at me, but I'd like to take a shot at answering them anyway.

    First off, I'm not trying to take any of your earnings from you and I doubt that most people view taxation in that way. Most people see taxes as a necessary means for local, state and federal governments to make money in order to pay for those services and protections the public/population require. For example, you do want your local police to continue fighing crime, right? How about firefighters to put out the 5 alarm fire that breaks out at 2am? What about food safety inspectors who work hard to maintain food sanitation standards at your local restaurant or pub? What about keeping your streets clean or collecting the trash on a weekly basis. So, stop with the death threats and/or combative analogies and think about what you're saying just a little bit.

    Second, I seriously doubt anyone's trying to enslave you or anyone else for that matter, this despite this country's long, soiled history of using minorities for profit by servatude, i.e., Native American Indians and African Americans as slaves, the Chinesse as indentured servants during the construction of the TransContinental Railroad, the Irish who risked their lives building some of our nation's largest skyscrappers, and now Mexicans as cheap day-laborers. You just can't escape this country's history of slavery and servatude of minorities.

    Third as stated in my first statement, you're not working for anyone's benefit but your own and that of your family. If you've bought into this rhetoric I feel sorry for you because that's just a stupid way of thinking. Now, are there people out there to take advantage of the "system"? Yes, absolutely! But as the saying goes, "Don't get mad at the player; get mad at the game!"

    Take your argument up with your state legislators and/or your Congressmen/Senators, if necessary, and force them to change the social entitlement laws accordingly, i.e., restrictions on who can receive Medicaid/Welfare/Food Stamps and for how long. Try to keep in mind that not everyone whose on Welfare are there because they want to be. Not every mother you see with 3 and 4 young grade school kids are there to by their choice or their own doing. Some are there due to divorce and have custody of the children. I know of a couple of instances where the father recently died and was the primary bread winner and now the mother has nothing to fall back on. You just never know what another person is going through especially in today's economy. Many families use these programs because for them it's a choice between starving or living on the streets. So, try to keep things in perspective if you will.

    2 million jobs lost is better than 4 million jobs lost, that the stimulus prevented, and we also have improvements to our infrastructure, and improvement in stocks that are attributable to the stimulus.

    What is your point in regards to Obama's Job's bill???

    Bush had a net jobs gain, Reagan had 17 million jobs created, and Obama has a net job loss with no improvement in site. Keep supporting the empty suit. Obama's job's bill is nothing more than Stimulus 2 that led to over 2 million net job losses. My point is Obama doesn't have a clue how to manage a private sector economy and neither do you.
