Truckin’: Paul Ryan & GOPe increase H2B Visas 400% for Truck Driver jobs after GOPe funds NAFTA Superhighway between Mexico US & Canada

You rubes didn’t think all that transcontintental commerce was going to give YOU jobs did you?

‘course not. Say hello to the latest wave of work visas- H2Bs for Truck Drivers.

…“The more than 2,000 page year-end funding bill contains a dramatic change to federal immigration law that would increase by as much as four-fold the number of low-wage foreign workers provided to employers under the controversial H-2B visa programme, beyond what is currently allowed,” said Senator Jeff Sessions.

Sessions said that the H-2B visas will soar from 66,000 to 250,000 because of the language in the deal.

These foreign workers are brought in exclusively to fill blue collar non-farm jobs in hotels, restaurants, construction, truck driving and many other occupations sought by millions of Americans, he said….

There is only 1 job they won’t outsource or replace with visas, their own.

Video: Paul Ryan Reacts: Obama continues to shadow dance with America, punts – gives another word fog full of fury, signifying nothing

More Updates at end of post.

Update: Paul Ryan is GREAT here, he is ‘disappointed’ ohhh that is exactly it! They got us all revved up for that dereliction of duty of a speech from a lectern this afternoon? Really, really bad.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What a whiff that was!

As always, Obama votes Present by not coming out and endorsing either Simpson-Bowles or anything else, (he gave them a shout out and a h/t at the end but endorsed none of their plan specifics). He did a word fog full of the same tired lines from ’08. Promises he has ALREADY FAILED TO FULFILL in the past 3 years.

Then he did a pivot to his Dr. No, stern Daddy routine, and laughably, he did it on his ‘trademark issue’  The Bush Tax Cuts!, which is of course the Big Issue he ALREADY CAVED ON!

Yes, audacity and bamboozlement is back for Obamapalooza Tour ’11-’12! All the Hype, None of the Hope!

They really plan to run on the same 6 yr old tired, broken-down trope of Obama being anti-Bush Tax Cut extension and Pro Middle Class American Dream. (and mebbe he is…IN HIS DREAMS!! It’s just his actual POLICIES that let him down? ie protecting TBTF fxckers who have housing on its back, making the TBTF Bigger, and refusing to allow Clinton era tax rates to come back).

Unless Team Obama thought they had pulled off some Total Recall number on all of us last night, uh, WTF are they thinking?

Don’t they know that WE know that he ALREADY CRUMPLED LIKE THE WET PAPER BAG HE IS on the extension of the Bush tax cuts? Did he think we somehow didn’t notice that?

Sure, he gave us the courtesy of a –  ‘I was forced to extend them to protect the middle class tax cuts’ BS line again, but again, if he gave his big ‘Hostages could be hurt’ spiel last time, doesn’t he think that WE think that HE WILL CAVE and extend them again when the Big Bad GOP Grandma Eating Wolf at the Door takes we middle class ‘victims’ ‘hostage’ again?

I means seriously, what the fxck? He doesn’t even TRY to spin us anymore? This is the best you;ve got? Man it’s lookin like a Fred Thompson energy level for Obama this time around.

So, it’s official there is for all effects and purposes no functioning POTUS on issues of real import. Congress needs to do what Hillary does on Foreign Policy, try to carry out the job with limited power while a Holier-Than-Thou absentee boss comes in once in a blue moon to pixx and moan about the work accomplished.

Let’s Review the Record on Obama’s Time at the Helm:

Foreign Policy? Has to be pushed HARD for MONTHS to make a decision, often leading to deterioration of circumstances on the ground that would allow mission success. See Af/Pak, Libya.

Update-Bonus- Launch military action unsanctioned by Congress, (previously one of your favorite Boosh! criticisms), go to Brazil to promote their energy independence and offer to make us dependent on them, do not make speech to nation on Libyan action.

Economy in Recession? Outsource a giant spendulus to Congressional Leadership of Pelosi/Reid and ‘Apollo Alliance’. Bonus – Insert unverifiable targets like ‘saving or creating’ jobs, yet attach chart that clearly projects a  UE target that goes unmet for THREE YEARS while claiming Success! Escape Velocity! Recovery Summer!.

Explosion of Entitlement Spending to Drown us in Debt? Outsource to a Commission for some mythical ‘consensus’, ignore said Commission report except to use as prop/tool when helpful. See Simpson/Bowles Commission,

Budget Presentation to Congress and the Nation? Whiff. Jack up spending then present ‘Budget Freeze’. Get Budget Do-Over Pass from Media. Nevermind, it’s just another whiff.

Tax Debate? Your biggest campaign promise:  An End to the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! Your raison d’être. Your ‘most deeply held political value’, the ‘shared sacrifice’, the ‘fairness rule’. You claim ‘hostages were taken, I couldn’t let people get hurt’ and position yourself, the President of the United States, as a hostage to the opposing party. You extend the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich!

Bonus- You continue to claim this is exactly the wrong policy, that it is hurting the nation but you sign the bill anyway.

Double Bonus- Bring out the last successful Democratic president to sell your plan to country, leave him alone at lectern with media. Added points since you called this man a ‘racist!’ during ’08 campaign.

Double Triple Toe-Loop Bonus – You run for a second term on same promise to End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich! that you just extended, but give no explanation of how you can avoid the ‘hostage situation’ and accomplish this.

I can’t EVEN get into the National Security issues, it is frightening to consider NSC Advisers who do not know of Averted Terror Attacks on Large Scale in London,( TSA is FRISKING children and the left is quiescent~)Janet Napolitano claiming the border is more secure than ever, (170 bodies found in mass graves THIS WEEK just over the border), the incredible volte-face he has done on EVERY, SINGLE Bush anti-Terrorism policy he lectured about since 2006. It goes on and on.

Update to list: How could we forget-

Natural Disasters: BP Oil Spill in Gulf. Stern language against BP ‘boot on throat!’. Photo op- unlike Boosh! don’t do flyover, get down and pick up tiny tarballs. Then fly away home. Oil spill continues, unchecked, leave company who caused spill in charge of ending it. CONVENE PANEL! Oil continues to spill, unchecked. 40 Days+ later BP finally stops spill. Sidle up to lectern declare success!

Bonus – Set up ‘pot o’dough’ the go-to method of ‘solving problems’ for Community Organizers, see Al Sharpton.

Energy Policy: Allow Boosh! Era lax regulation( another of your campaign talking points) /certification/oversight of permits to continue under your Change!(d) DOE. This leads to worst oil spill in history. Convene panel! Stop all oil permits. Everywhere, land or sea.

Bonus- Give more grants to campaign supporter GE for ‘windmills’.

Double Bonus- Continue to snark at hard-working Americans who drive large vehicles, infer it is their fault as gas DOUBLES in your first 3 years. Propose new gas tax!

Triple Lutz Bonus: Fund off shore oil drilling IN BRAZIL. Announce to Brazilians you want America  to be their customer. (Make announcement in Brazil while launching a military action that has not been sanctioned by Congress, leaving the American people to figure out what is happening without you.)

Conclusion–  I don’t see how he has any chance of winning, even if Katie Couric and Brian Williams pick him up and carry him between his Arena Circuit Tour of College Campuses this time.

Unless of course, the conservatives within the GOP decide to sit the election out as they did in ‘087. Really disappointing. I don’t think our economy will achieve Larry Summer’s vaunted ‘escape velocity’ if we get another 4 years of Obama.

Please vote. No matter who it is, please please vote.

Update 3: Jim DeMint calls Obama a ‘Bitter Clinger’!!!! BWAAAHAAA! (emphasis mine)~

The President made it absolutely clear today that Democrats will cling bitterly to deficit spending until our nation is bankrupt. After offering an unserious budget just a few months ago, the President offered new platitudes but the same old policies. He’s still pushing for trillion dollar tax increases that would destroy jobs and cripple our economy. He still wants to add trillions in new spending to our $14 trillion mountain of debt without a credible plan to ever balance the budget….”

Update 2: AllahPundit at HotAir has more Ryan goodness from Levin.

“He’s basically a pyromaniac in a field of straw men”

Update: The GOP Plan: Rep. Paul Ryan: House GOP Health Care Plan: Patients’ Choice Act

*

Update:  RCP The GOP Plan presented by Coburn, Burr, Ryan and Nunes:

Frankly I really like it and I am damned picky about health care reform:, Think what an amazing day it is when the GOP is proposing health care reform that incorporates the basic tenets to ensure consistent coverage with automatic enrollment and access to Congress’ plan as well as bypassing the dreaded McCarran Ferguson Act which prevents interstate federal regulation, allowing interstate policy purchases woohoo competition baby

and they eliminate the dreaded pre ex limitations. We have won a major battle to get coverage expanded by virtue of this proposal itself and frankly in our current financial situation this plan covers the immediate needs and does not cost us trillions of dollars we simply do not have….and anyone who thinks Dems in Congress and TOTUS will put thrpugh a public option are smokin rope, they will kill it; trading it away for nothing at the last minute, and say they tried!! boohoo,  leaving us with the private carriers getting a bunch of new enrollees and premiums and a govt panel to run it all like an HMO-

Remember the stories on 20/20 the HORROR of patients in HMOs denied an MRI and dying, denied EXPERIMENTAL NON FDA APPROVED treatments and people were outraged, now our own govt is preparing to act as an HMO and deny us coverage,

go Google that new Colonoscopy Scan they have that Medicare just denied coverage for…now that procedure will not be done in volume, and progress will not happen, the price will not drop, the technology will not be pursued, the cost containment method of funding health care expansion as proposed by Team TOTUS will kill genetic single person cure developments etc..

Highlights of the GOP Legislation – Patients’ Choice Act (if you like it Call your Congress Critters):

  • We have introduced a comprehensive health care reform bill, the Patients’ Choice Act that, we believe, will bring us far closer to the goal of universal coverage than the Obama plan. Our bill, in specific legislative language, does the following:
  1. we would shift health care tax benefits to individuals and families in the form of a “Medi-Choice” tax rebate worth about $2,200 for individuals and $5,700 for families. Under our plan, if you like the health care you have, you can keep it – but you’ll have more money in your pocket because you will still receive a tax rebate.
  2. The Patients’ Choice Act lowers health care costs and insurance premiums by more sensibly caring for those with chronic illnesses and those deemed “uninsurable.”
  3. In addition to innovative prevention initiatives, our plan utilizes risk adjustment mechanisms and other options at the State level – such as reinsurance and risk pools – to extend coverage to those with chronic medical conditions.
  4. we recognize that markets can’t solve all problems. That’s why our bill prevents cherry picking – when insurance companies choose to cover only healthy patients – by equalizing risk across insurance companies and reversing the perverse incentives that leave those most vulnerable with the fewest options.
  5. Our bill creates voluntary state-based solutions – state health exchanges – that will offer health insurance benefits using the same standard used for Members of Congress. Every American would have guaranteed access to coverage and care under this plan, regardless of patient age or health history.
  6. And to ensure that states get to design the solutions their patients need, states would have the freedom to form voluntary pooling arrangements with other state exchanges to diversify risk pools, ease administrative burdens and cover costs for insurance.
  7. We also provide simple new opportunities for automatic enrollment to help people who need coverage
  8. We remove the stigma from Medicaid recipients and give them the ability to purchase the health coverage and care they need from any provider. We preserve Medicaid for the blind, aged, and disabled and we eliminate widespread fraud in the programs. We do all this and still save states and the federal government about $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years.

COSTS excerpt:  our bill accomplishes these goals without spending any new federal money, or raising taxes. If this sounds too good to be true, we would note that the problem in health care is not that we don’t spend enough, but that Americans aren’t getting enough value for their dollars. On a per capita basis, America spends nearly twice what other industrialized nations spend on health care yet we are hardly twice as healthy.
