I’m speaking to you this week from the Boeing Plant in Everett, Washington. Boeing has been in this community for half a century. But it’s what they’re doing here today that has folks really excited; because at this plant they’re building the plane of the future – the Dreamliner. It’s an impressive sight. And, to be honest, part of why I came was to see it up close. But I also came because this is a great example of how we can bring jobs and manufacturing back to America. You see, the last few decades haven’t been easy for manufacturing in this country. New technology has made businesses more efficient and productive – and that’s good – but it’s also made a lot of jobs obsolete. The result has been painful for a lot of families and communities. Factories where people thought they’d retire have left town. Jobs that provided a decent living have been shipped overseas. And the hard truth is that a lot of those jobs aren’t coming back.
[What I'm not telling you: This trip to the West Coast was primarily to shore-up my 'Hollywood Buddies' voter base. We're at the Boeing plant for the sole reason of putting the expense on the backs of the forty-six percent of Americans who actually pay taxes!! As you may well remember, the Boeing Dreamliner was involved in a severe kerfuffle with the NLRB over moving some aspects of it's manufacture to the brand-new Boeing facility in Charleston, S.C. My regime sued Boeing through the NLRB to force the aircraft manufacturer to keep the entire 'Dreamliner' workforce in the State of Washington; to leave the new Charleston facility idle. As I've demonstrated for over three years, I'll go to any lengths to protect every aspect of my voter base--in this case--the union workers; the union hierarchies. Do you find it 'funny' that after a new contract with Boeing's union machinists in Washington was signed, the NLRB complaint was dropped?!?
The original reason for this trip is--as I said--to bring those straying 'Hollywood types' back into the fold. George Soros assured me that 'rubbing elbows with royalty' would impress said 'Hollywood types,' but alas.... not so much!! The Regime had expected a far-greater turnout than the dismal 125 'ticketed attendees' at one event. Soros had even bussed in several thousand of his 'MoveOn' thugs in an attempt to gin-up a show of support!]
But that doesn’t mean we have to settle for a lesser future. I don’t accept that idea. In America, there’s always something we can do to create new jobs and new manufacturing and new security for the middle-class. In America, we don’t give up, we get up. Right now, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Over the past 23 months, businesses have created 3.7 million new jobs. And manufacturers are hiring for the first time since the 1990s. It’s now getting more expensive to do business in places like China. Meanwhile, America is more productive than ever. And companies like Boeing are realizing that even when we can’t make things cheaper than China, we can make things better. That’s how we’re going to compete globally. For Boeing, business right now is booming. Last year, orders for commercial aircraft rose by more than 50 percent. To meet that rising demand, they’ve put thousands of folks to work all over the country. We want to see more of this. We need to make it as easy as we can for our companies to create more jobs in America, not overseas. And that starts with our tax code. No company should get a tax break for outsourcing jobs. Instead, tax breaks should go to manufacturers who set up shop here at home. Bigger tax breaks should go to high-tech manufacturers who create the jobs of the future. And if you relocate your company to a struggling community, you should get help financing that new plant, that new equipment, or training for new workers. It’s time to stop rewarding businesses that ship jobs overseas, and start rewarding businesses that create jobs here in America. And Congress should send me that kind of tax reform right away.
[What I'm not telling you: Most of the statistics that you see coming out of my regime.... just more of Soros', Geithner's and Bernanke's use of their book: "Creative Accounting for Dummies!" Have you noticed--for the past three years--that every statistic released by the regime is subsequently revised further toward the negative?!? The national pamphleteers blather on about the original stastic; let the revised numbers 'die a natural death' without comment.
My budget proposal--for instance--is just more of the same. There's a reason 'pinky' reid in the Senate hasn't passed a budget in well over one-thousand days!! The conservative types; the "Tea Party" Movement members in the Congress, have put forth several conservative, realistic budget proposals but 'pinky' either refuses to bring them to the floor for a vote or just rejects them out-of-hand!! This is the owe-bamacRATic method of obfuscating our fiduciary responsibility to the country while--at the same time--hiding our fiscally irresponsible 'spending addiction!'
I've been fighting as hard as I can for the 'payroll tax cut.' We have to reduce the numbers of retired workers in the Social Security system. One way to do that--my preferred method--is to reduce the amount of money available to pay retirees. The payroll tax cut ONLY affects that mount withheld from pay to fund the Social Security retirees' pay and other benefits. Not only will it reduce the funds available, it will paint me as "the tax-cut ruler," possibly boosting my falling poll numbers. America's workers relish the addition to their take-home pay; the welfareRATs really don't give a shit so long as their monthly 'owe-bama money' is credited to their accounts on time!!
That 'kind of budget' the Congress should send me?!? Just so much more bovine feces (for those of you working for the federal government: That means BULLSHIT!)!! Although it'll be neither me nor George Soros that agrees, but.... There comes a time in every failing business that the management has to 'bite-the-bullet' and do the right thing, hard as that might be!! The federal government is the largest 'business' on the planet although it has no 'products' makes no 'profit.' All this money we talk of 'throwing around?!?' The federal (and many state) government(s) must first CONFUSCATE that money from a working individual, a 'going' business, before we can use it to shore-up our various voter baSolyndses, i.e., the welfareRATs, those fledgling, unsustainable green energy businesses, the various labor and service unions, et al!!]
Another thing we’re doing is to make it easier for companies like Boeing to sell their products all over the world, because more exports mean more jobs. Two years ago, I set a goal of doubling U.S. exports over five years. And we’re on track to meet that goal – ahead of schedule. We have a big opportunity right now to build not only an economy that will help us succeed today, but an economy that will help our kids and their kids succeed tomorrow. We know what we need to do. We need to strengthen American manufacturing. We need to invest in American-made energy and new skills for American workers. And above all, we need to renew the values that have always made this country great: Hard work. Fair play. Shared responsibility. We can do this. Ask the folks in Everett. Right here, a few years ago, the first Dreamliner took off on its maiden trip. Thousands of employees came to watch. One was an executive office administrator named Sharon O’Hara. As Sharon saw that first plane take flight – a result of so much hard work – she got goose bumps. In her words, she said, “We said we would do it and we did.” That’s the story of America. We said we would do it, and we did. That’s the can-do spirit that makes us who we are. We’ve seen challenging times before. But we always emerge from them stronger. And that’s what we’re going to do again today.
[What I'm not telling you: I fully intend to continue to beat the American taxpayer 'over-the-head' with my proposals to fund my buddies who have those unsustainable green energy companies like Solyndra. Solyndra was already near bankruptcy when we gave them $535 Billion in subsidies. They subsequently divvied up the ill-gotten gains then went into bankruptcy as planned!! What'ta deal, huh?!? I forced the American taxpayer to reward my supporters, donors and campaign workers, once again!!
Check out those 'values' I quoted: hard work; fair play; shared responsibility.
"Hard work" means the middle class continues to work it's collective ass off while the federal government siphons off ever-increasing amounts in addition to the already atrocious borrowing limits to fund it's 'spending addiction.'
"Fair play" is nothing more than an owe-bamacRATic euphemism for the various 'warfares' we employ to achieve our socio-fascist goals. The primary way that socialism advances in a democratic culture is through class, economic and race warfare. We're well on our way to accomplishing our socialist goals;
"Shared responsibility" is nothing more than socialist edict. We intend to denegrate individual responsibility; American individualism' to the point of extinction! Basic socialism relies on warfare between the proletariat (the workers; the serf-class) and the bourgeoisie (management; business/factory owners). That's what has been going on since the inception of the owe-bama Regime; the serf-class against Wall Street; the serf-class against the bankers; the serf-class against 'big ag;' the serf-class against 'big business;' the serf-class against 'big oil,' et al!! Against everyone and everything EXCEPT the most logical culprit: BIG GOVERNMENT!!
The socialist bent of the democRATics and the owe-bamacRATics has been continually destroying American individualism, American exceptionalism and American entrepreneurial spirit since the Lyndon Johnson "Great Society." Continuing into my "The owe-bama Destruction of the American Dream" programs, we now have just under 15% of the entire American population (313.04 million 'souls') on food stamps. That means just under 47 Million miscreants are helping you spend your money.... an' that ain't all: they're but a part of the 52% of Americans 'riding-in-the-wagon!' That's enough socialism to think about for this week!]
