"He wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.” Mitt Romney broadcasts his desire to fire Americans. After all the 1% who are bankrolling R-Money have no need of teachers and cops.Spending at the Federal Level for beneficial things like government workers salary and infrastructure has plummeted since the end of the Stimulus.
"Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. But it didn’t happen. Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s. The big surge in federal spending happened in fiscal 2009, before Obama took office. Since then, spending growth has been relatively flat. There has been no huge increase in spending under the current president, despite what you hear. - Rex Nutting, Marketwatch, Obama Spending Binge Never Happened.Under Ronald Reagan and George W(orst President Ever) Bush, Republicans spent lavishly on Government to buoy the economy and hide the disastorus effects of their Austerity Programs.
Unfortunately for Right-Wingers, Bush's profligate $10,000,000,000,000 (10 Trillion) spending on the Phony War on Terror wasn't able to stave of the collapse of US Economy which ushered in the latest and greatest Republican Recession.
When actual figures were presented showing Governmental spending increased more under Republican Administrations than under President Obama, Right-Wingers went insane having their lies and their cognative dissonance exposed!
Now, it is not a good thing that President Obama has reduced spending, issued a 2 year pay freeze on civilian federal workers, cut government employees while keeping up the Phony War on Terror.
The reason the economy has not improved is President Obama has allowed himself to follow Republican economic policies, which combined with unconscienceable waste of lives and money pursuing Cheney's Wars have devastated our economy.
Meanwhile, Lord Mitt Romney, the Duke of Bain assures the Rich he will enslave the 99%,
"As for what to do for the housing industry specifically, and are there things that you can do to encourage housing? One is don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom, allow investors to buy homes," Romney revels in his callous disregard for families getting kicked out of their homes.Besides promising to fire and eliminate Middle Class Americans (his speciality), President Vulture Romney stated his Day 1 policies are designed to expand the Income Inequality, accelerate the transfer of wealth upwards to the Rich, and impoverish 99% of the Nation.
In fact, the first thing Romney has promised to do, is give himself a $5,000,000 tax break while also cutting the the income tax rates for the obscenely Rich while raising taxes for the Middle Class and Poor.
Romney has also promised to approve the Keystone XL pipeline project. After providing no more than 5,000 temporary construction jobs, the pipeline would only succeed in transporting Billions of Dollars of illicit petro-dollars to the obscenely wealthy Romney supporting Plutocrats and Multi-National Oil Conglomerates, leaving Americans a legacy of rusty foreign manufactured shoddy steel pipes, pumping toxic Canadian shale oil, across American aquifers for transport to China.

Pipe Dreams? Jobs Gained, Jobs Lost by the Construction of Keystone XL which punctures all the manna from heaven bullshit claims of instant prosperity by TransCanada Corporation and the American Petroleum Institute.But, a .pdf produced by a "liberal" college? All that's needed to completely undermine it is for Faux News to hire Sarah Palin to proclaim, "Our Nation Is Woven Together With Pipelines..." and the Fox viewership is thus secured.
“Fox is watched by the true believers. We need to get the independents and the women.” —Mitt Romney, on Fox’s viewer base (Source: mediabistro.com)And thus, President Romney and the Plutocracy get the Middle Class to destroy itself...
