Obama to Offer New Deal on Corporate Taxes, Jobs
Wall Street Journal ^ | 7/30/13 | PETER NICHOLAS and JOHN MCKINNON

Posted on 07/30/2013 5:19:02 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Hoping to break an impasse, President Barack Obama today will extend a new offer to congressional Republicans in which he would back an overhaul of the corporate tax system in exchange for a guarantee that a resulting one-time windfall be used to underwrite various job creation proposals.

Mr. Obama will lay out the plan in a speech he is to deliver in Chattanooga, Tenn., in a bid to win over Republican lawmakers who've opposed White House requests for new spending on roads and bridges and other projects aimed at boosting employment.

He is a joke....and it is PATHETIC that no one on the Republican side will be in Chattanooga today to follow up the Clown's POSING with some payback.

Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she will hold a football while he kicks it. Charlie Brown usually refuses to kick it at first, not trusting Lucy. Lucy then says something to persuade Charlie Brown to trust her. Charlie Brown runs up to kick the ball, but at the very last second before he can kick it, Lucy removes the ball and Charlie Brown flies into the air, before falling down and hurting himself.

We had a $780B stimulus that was supposed to revive the economy. It didn’t. Now he wants more of the same. When the $$ is spent, all those jobs will just go away—again.

Job creation programs are theft. He has run out of money to steal and is being creative.

The Democrat Party is a criminal enterprise

This is just more jesse jackson extortion. obama wants to funnel more money to blacks and muslims and he wants to extort it from corporate America in a deal where he agrees to do what the hell he should be doing... getting Americans back to work... but that is not his agenda and he would never keep his word in any case.

If Obama wants to co-operate with Republicans you can bet the Republicans will come out on the losing side.

At this point it's apparent that whatever bait he's dangling is going to have a hook in it.

He'll try to find some way to use taxpayer money to bribe the companies to provide jobs for his supporters, and when that money runs out, make them keep those workers and get rid of the normal people.

No good can come of this. It just ain't in him.

If there’s a resulting one time windfall, it’s a tax increase. Obama never really cuts taxes; he plays a shell and pea game, shuffling around the laws so they sound better, but always looks to increase government involvement and control.

obama will offer boner some corporate tax breaks and maybe a rule eased here and there but the bottom line is that they will be meaningless to any of us and obama will get another 50 billion to replenish his slush fund. obama will then use “I CUT TAXES” as a club to beat us over the head with in 2014. These rinos are dangerous.

The title of this article more appropriately should read "More Obama wealth Redistribution offered to appease the scared GOP"

Looks like Obama is going to get the Republican members of the “Gang of 8” on the phone again, this time for this.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

The unemployment rate in 1938 was almost exactly the same as in 1932 despite billions being spent by FDR for government make work programs.

Socialism: The government OWNS the means of production.

Fascism: A variant of socialism in which the government CONTROLS, rather than OWNS, the means of production.

With Barack, it is ALWAYS about CONTROLLING the means of production...he will give something up...but in return, he wants control.

Because BHO is ideologically...

...wait for it...

A Fascist.

I would love to see the hissy fit he’d throw if republicans took over the senate. And what he would say to the people.

Yep - a "promise" to back it is a bit different than actually allowing it (another "I was for it before I pulled the football away" scam). Plus, even if he allowed it to become law, he would just decide it couldn't be implemented.

He's gone rogue and surrounded him with miscreants who adore the rogue status.

Let me guess. Spend/print more money. Raise taxes. More green energy/education “investment”. Rich people/corporations/Republicans evil.

Did I miss anything important?
