 Democrats vs Republicans on job creation.

Since records have been kept, throughout our history as a nation, there has been one constant re: job creation.

Everytime a Democrat follows a Republican into the White House job creation sky rockets.

Everytime a republican follows a Democrat into the White house job creation falls off a cliff.

This happens everytime , without exception. IT HAS NEVER NOT HAPPENED.

Even now, with our dismal employment numbers, Obama is presiding over a much better job creation than Bush ever did. No matter what lies you've heard.

The GOP keeps telling us to elect them and they will create jobs. America has been waiting for this to happen ... IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED!

One of the many many lies republicans love to tell is that deregulation and lower taxes on corporations and the rich creates jobs. Even though the truth is easily available, they simply keep repeating this fantasy.

Fact: Since 1937 higher taxes on top rates have had no positive effect on job creation. In 1948 the top tax rate was 80% and unemployment was 4% - in the 1980's top tax rates were 70% and the unemployment rate was 7.5% - Fact: When Bush Jr. lowered top rates to 35% unemployment began climbing and we had THE worst job creation on record. Although the slide has been slowed, we are still allowing corporations and the wealthy to pay historically low taxes...if they pay taxes at all. And we still suffer from high unemployment. Same old story.

In Canada since 1987 top tax rates have dropped from 45% to 30% in 2010... unemployment has risen steadily during that period.

Here is the historic graph of job growth democrats vs republicans.

Two truths are inescapable. The trickle down, cut taxes for the rich and cut services for 95% of Americans is a sure recipe for disaster.

The corporate owned GOP is willing to ignore the will of the people and cause pain for a majority of Americans in order to serve the interests of the wealthy... and with the citizens united decision and so many right leaning federal courts, the slide towards complete corporate ownership of our democracy is a real possibility.

Love learning. Hate stupidity and intolerance. First let me say that I am not a professional writer, although I have written a couple of screenplays and even sold one some years ago. I am however a professional actor and a member of the screen (more...)
