A Fast Fix To The Economy

While it won’t happen over night, if the Federal Government repealed The Dodd-Frank banking law and put the Glass–Steagall Act back in place,  the financial markets would have room to breath as well as put something back in place that we all know worked.

Then we need to repeal the health care bill, even if we don’t replace it right away with something more workable. The clarity for small businesses would give them room to make a 5 year plan. This would allow small businesses to hire employees and after all the big thing is jobs.

Make the Bush tax cuts permanent and put the EPA on a VERY SHORT leash. Just doing those few things, would help jump start our country. There are more things that could be done, but just starting with those few things would give us a huge boost.

A little bit more about the EPA; make it illegal for them to try to enforce new rules that have not been passed by congress. This would take away the uncertainty that companies have to deal with when the EPA announces some new regulation.

The last thing is a no brainier;  allow  oil companies to do what they do, which is drill for oil. This alone would create a lot of new high paying jobs.

  1. gee, ya think after the rash of PTSD and suicides in Vietnam the DOD might have sunk a little money into this?
    now, after 6 years of ‘just suck it up’ attitude, we’re all gung-ho on increasing VA help?
    too little, WAY too late.

    “I would love our Military to all get decent wages, however it seems congress nor the President wish to do this.”

    WHA?

    Barack Obama’s Record
    Record of Advocacy: As a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Obama passed legislation to improve care and slash red tape for our wounded warriors recovering at places like Walter Reed. He passed laws to help homeless veterans and offered an innovative solution to prevent at-risk veterans from falling into homelessness. Obama led a bipartisan effort in the Senate to try to halt the military’s unfair practice of discharging service members for having a service-connected psychological injury. He fought for fair treatment of Illinois veterans’ claims and forced the VA to conduct an unprecedented outreach campaign to disabled veterans with lower than-average benefits. Obama passed legislation to stop a VA review of closed PTSD cases that could have led to a reduction in veterans’ benefits. He passed an amendment to ensure that all service members returning from Iraq are properly screened for traumatic brain injuries. He introduced legislation to direct the VA and Pentagon to fix disjointed records systems and improve outreach to members of the National Guard and Reserves

    add to that the First Lady’s large focus on military families.

    McCain should be ashamed.

    McCain should be ashamed.

    They all should be ashamed.BTW before you just bash McCain look up the entire bill that he voted against, I had to in order to be proven wrong about McCain. Seems that like most orgs. They only want to show one part of the bill and then how a person voted instead of showing the entire bill so we could see the reason why someone voted the way they did.
    To make things really simple, each bill should be for one thing and one thing only. Example would be H.R 9999999 Improve Armed Forces Medical Treatment.
    Nothing else added that is not related directly to Armed Forces Medical Treatment. No packaging other things that have nothing to do with it.
    This way we can see how a person is really voting.
