Scott Brown proposes payroll tax holiday for *workers*…

Yay Scott! Finally, stimulus I can believe in! We have suggested just this here many times, but look! here is an actual DC pol proposing it! Scott will be on Kudlow at 700pm EST tonight….


Boston Herald:

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s first piece of legislation is a proposal to return unspent stimulus cash in the form of a payroll tax cut for workers, a proposal that came as the Bay State Republican was named to the prestigious Armed Services committee.

“The best way to revive our economy and spur job creation is by returning money directly to the American people so they can save and put money back into the economy,” Brown said yesterday. “Families are still hurting and their hard-earned tax dollars are sitting unused in a stimulus slush fund in Washington.”

Aides described Brown’s proposal as a temporary tax cut that applies to workers making roughly $200,000 or less a year, designed to “help out people who make less more.” It would kick in immediately upon passage, saving the average worker about $100 a month for a total of at least $500 for individuals and $1,000 for working couples, the senator’s aides said.

The tax cut would expire in about six months, or when the roughly $80 billion in unspent stimulus money drains down….

I believe in miracles…..

WH Spinmeisters: ‘Reform’ is the new ‘Change’…

So let’s get this straight. Millions of Americans are out of work for a record time. Business is afraid to make any moves in the face of the anti business rhetoric AND legislation (cap and trade) coming from this Congress and WH. The people are pixxed and it is showing up in even the most spun pro Obama polling. So what is their plan? Move center as the people clearly want, as Big Dawg did?

Pshaw! They have a new slogan! That’ll fix everything!

Because they figure we won’t notice they are trying to remake our image into that of old Western Europe and it’s socialized economies? (which are now breaking down under the weight of their entitlements). Too late Team TOTUS, cat’s out of the bag, we noticed like a year ago, remember the Townhalls and Tea Parties? We are awake and I see no way they can put us back to sleep before the midterm elections….

And unsurprisingly, they plan to begin with attacks on the SCOTUS Campaign Finance ruling. Sure now that Team Obama opened fire on private enterprise and that private enterprise and the people have the ability to fund campaign ads, suddenly Obama is all about campaign finance reform.

A top administration official said that “the biggest piece of reform” will be supporting congressional efforts to limit the impact of the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling that opened campaigns to huge independent spending by corporations and unions. “Americans really turned against this opinion, the official said. “And so the biggest reform is to ensure that our politics and our campaigns are not controlled by special interests. Getting legislation that deals with the Supreme Court decision on the floor and debated — and hopefully passed — is very important.”..

Yeah very important now that American private enterprise realizes this Administration will tank the economy to implement their top down vision of America.

This from a guy who left the credit card verification turned off on his campaign website and got foreign donations against FEC law (not to mention donations from ‘people’ like DooDad and DooDadPro). This from the guy who waived public finance after signing an agreement to be bound by it.

They are fooling no one.

Politico rolls out the new slogan…

President Barack Obama, after weeks of private talks, is putting the finishing touches on a new election-year strategy that replaces sweeping “change” with incremental reform, according to senior White House officials.

“Reform is the new change,” a senior aide told POLITICO….

And they plan to go back on Obamapalooza the Permanent Campaign Tour (hey guys that stuff only works ONCE in America, those SEIU filled buses won’t cut it this time). But when in doubt, attack the banks!:

A close adviser said Obama plans to increase his travel in the country, including minicampaigns built around “a series of small but highly visible policy debates that clearly put the Democrats on the side of middle-class families, with lobbies for special interests on the other side.” Two likely targets: student-loan servicing organizations and banks.

November cannot come soon enough. If the WH thinks pulling a Dubyah and moving into signing statements left and right will save them they are incredibly stupid. In fact, their stupidity and short-sightedness may be ‘unprecendented’!

Krauthammer Agrees!: Twofer Tuesday: The Middle

Update: Feb. 19, 2010 – Krauthammer agrees!:

..It turned out that the country’s problems were not problems of structure but of leadership. Reagan and Clinton had it. Carter didn’t. Under a president with extensive executive experience, good political skills and an ideological compass in tune with the public, the country was indeed governable.

It’s 2010, and the first-year agenda of a popular and promising young president has gone down in flames. Barack Obama’s two signature initiatives — cap-and-trade and health-care reform — lie in ruins.

Desperate to explain away this scandalous state of affairs, liberal apologists haul out the old reliable from the Carter years: “America the Ungovernable.” So declared Newsweek. “Is America Ungovernable?” coyly asked the New Republic. Guess the answer….

The leadership of the Democratic Party still does not get it.

The lamestream journOlists are trying to spin the departure of Bayh as a sign the ‘system doesn’t work’ i.e. government is broken.

Huh funny that, I remember Dubyah getting Medicare Part D, two wars, No Child Left Behind and tax cuts passed with far less of a majority and the same system of governance. Big Dawg got NAFTA, SCHIP, FMLA, balanced the budget. Both created millions of jobs.

The system is not broken, the leadership is weak. OWN YOUR CANDIDATE.

And that’s the view from here in ‘The Middle’ 🙂

I read posts from the ‘left’-  BTD at TalkLeft, and the journOlists – the Politico hit piece on Evan Bayh today and I think, wow they are So Far Away From Me. I think they will continue to be shocked! and amazed! and astounded! as the Dems are swept out of power. It is clear to everyone but those in the bubble or on the left that the country is saying N-O to the Obama Agenda all down the line.

The Democratic Party is So Far Away from the Middle. Since America IS The Middle we will have to remove them at the ballot box again. My Generation’s  (X)turn to be a ‘Reagan Democrat’ is it, and save the country from the worst proclivities of the farleft neoprogressive agenda? Okay I’m down with that.

I get so tired when I have to explain
When you’re so far away from me
See you’ve been in the sun and I’ve been in the rain
And you’re so far away from me
