Didn’t Hear the Speech

September 9, 2011

I was busy listening to another president…

With that said, I have a couple comments…

I dare the Right side of congress to propose that the payroll tax cuts go permanent rather than just extending them for a year.  The cuts aren’t really working since business knows that employee costs will go up in a year.

Don’t we still have stimulus money in the bank to fund school repairs?

More to the point… are there any roads left to work on?  Geez, I’ve been on the road these past four weeks all over the west, and the new national flower is apparently the traffic barrel.

I’ll be interested to see if the president just punts the cost recovery to the deficit commission.  He’s pushing congress to pass a plan that has no details (like usual), and it’s going to be another political posturing point for him… “Hey, I proposed something and they just argued.”  That’s great if you’re running for re-election.  What about if you really want jobs?

I hope we see some concrete proposals from someone… and that there’s actual progress.

    Actually, you did hear the speech. In 2009. And again in 2010.

    BTW – where is that picture taken? Is that at the Reagan Library?

      Good point. I’ll hear it again and again for the next year.

      Reagan Library… my Facebook page has a higher-res image. It’s a great way to spend a half-day or more.
