Washington, DC, August 11, 2010 —  The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO announced today an ad campaign thanking key Democratic members of the House of Representatives for voting to save hundreds of thousands of jobs that were on the chopping block without adding a dime to the deficit.  According to a CNN poll released today, 60% of Americans support the legislation.

The ads, entitled “Jobs,” applaud passage of an important bill to provide vital federal aid to state and local governments and school districts to help with budget shortfalls and save jobs.  Radio ads will run in the districts of Representative Bill Owens (NY) and sixteen other representatives. “America’s working families need to know that Bill Owens stood up for them by voting for legislation to save hundreds of thousands of jobs,” said AFSCME Pres. Gerald W. McEntee.

“The American people will remember who stood up to save our struggling economy, and who chose to play politics with our lives and jobs.”

  1. This “stimulus” bill was also passed by buying two Republican Senators from Maine.The Navy cut 160 million from Bath Shipyards for ships they did not need and the Obamaists restored the money to get the Maine senator votes to pass the spending bill.The only way to save the economy and jobs is to cut government spending on all levels and cut taxes.It is insane to raise taxes when the present stream of taxes is declining.My house market value declined $100,000 in the last three years,multiply that by all the homes in Yonkers and throughout the country and that is the wealth shrinkage and tax base decline. But elected Democratic politicians are only interested in their next election.After the election the Democrats who spent the money will decare a budget crisis and raise taxes to balance the budget again driving the country into depression.The only good Democrat is a defeated Democrat.

  2. I would only add that the Dow tanked yet again today, and the index is down over 4000 points from its old high. Add that to a real unemployment of approximately 17%, and you have a country in a tailspin. If we somehow avoid a depression it will only be by going into a double-dip recession instead.
    November can’t come soon enough.

  3. A real class act transferring money from the food stamp budget to insure the union vote.Meanwhile Obamists are killing the economy with the GDP growing at less than 2.5% creating only 70,000 jobs when the ecoonomy needs 250,000 jobs increase to reduce unemployment.More government jobs will be lost by municipalities as tax revenues sink with the economy.The country is on the verge of depression this second half of the year.Increased taxes, increased government spending are economic killers and tax cuts and less government spending are real stimulus benefiting all workers.the only good Democrat is a defeated Democrat.
