President Obama responds to President Obama's jobs plan. Freedomworks Taxpayer March on Washington D.C. 9 12 09 - September 12 2009. The Taxpayer March on Washington (also known as the 9/12 Tea Party) was a Tea Party protest march from Freedom Plaza to the United States Capitol that was held on September 12, 2009, in Washington, D.C. The event coincided with other similar protests organized in various cities across the nation. The protesters rallied against what they consider big government, the dismantling of free market capitalism, abortion, and President Barack Obama's proposals on health care reform, taxation, and federal spending, among other issues. Organizers of the event included the 9-12 Project, FreedomWorks, the National Taxpayers Union, The Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, Tea Party Patriots, and ResistNet. The event was also promoted by Fox News commentator Glenn Beck as a symbol of what he called "national unity" following the eight-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The march is the largest gathering of fiscal conservatives ever held in Washington, D.C., as well as the largest demonstration against President Obama's administration to date. Though many of the signs were close to the original Tea Party message of "Taxed Enough Already," such as "Stop Obama's Spending Spree," some of the handwritten signs carried by protesters included statements such as "Liar Liar Pants on Fire!" and "Hey Obamacare! Hands off my body". Other signs promoted Obama citizenship conspiracy theories, depicted the Obama "Joker" image, and compared Obama to Adolf Hitler. One protester commented that many signs were "expressing concerns about the tax burdens to be carried by "our grandchildren" and other signs he didn't feel were appropriate to repeat". Gene Healy, author and vice president at the libertarian Cato Institute, expressed the opinion that the signs generally focused on opposition to government bailouts, Obama's proposal on health care reform, and the appointment of presidential "czars". Among the speakers at the rally were former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, chairman of FreedomWorks, and a small number of congressional Republicans including Representative Mike Pence, chairman of the House Republican Conference, Representative Tom Price of Georgia, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, and Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. Pence said that "Americans want health care reform, but they don't want government takeover". On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787 billion economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession. The act includes increased federal spending for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives, and direct assistance to individuals, which is being distributed over the course of several years. President Barack Obama signs the ARRA into law on February 17, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. Vice President Joe Biden stands behind him. In March, Obama's Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, took further steps to manage the financial crisis, including introducing the Public-Private Investment Program for Legacy Assets, which contains provisions for buying up to $2 trillion in depreciated real estate assets. Obama intervened in the troubled automotive industry in March 2009, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including the sale of Chrysler to Italian automaker Fiat and a reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company, with the Canadian government shouldering a 12% stake. In June 2009, dissatisfied with the pace of economic stimulus, Obama called on his cabinet to accelerate the investment. He signed into law the Car Allowance Rebate System, known colloquially as "Cash for Clunkers", that had mixed results. The Congressional Budget Office and a broad range of economists credit Obama's stimulus plan for economic growth. The CBO released a report stating that the stimulus bill increased employment by 1--2.1 million while conceding that "It is impossible to determine how many of the reported jobs would have existed in the absence of the stimulus package."Although an April 2010 survey of members of the National Association for Business Economics showed an increase in job creation (over a similar January survey) for the first time in two years, 73% of the 68 respondents believed that the stimulus bill has had no impact on employment.

Obama Agrees to Extend Tax Cuts for 2 Years
 
04:02
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish President Obama announced an agreement with congressional Republicans in December. It would extend for two years the tax cuts put in place by former president George W. Bush. The tax cuts were to end in January. The compromise extends current income tax rates for all Americans for two years. That includes rates for the richest Americans. The agreement also cuts workers' Social Security taxes by two percentage points. Social Security is retirement insurance paid by almost all American workers and employers. The so-called payroll tax holiday would save a family earning fifty thousand dollars about one thousand dollars a year. For the president, the most important part of the compromise was the extension of aid payments to unemployed Americans for thirteen months. In November, the jobless rate increased by two-tenths of a percent to nine point eight percent. Economists say payments to unemployed people directly help the economy because they spend the money immediately. This has led some experts to call the agreement a stimulus measure meant to improve the economy. President Obama said he accepted the compromise because he wanted to help unemployed Americans.But the president faced strong opposition from his own party. Some Democrats objected to keeping tax cuts for the rich at a time when the government is struggling with deep budget deficits. The extension of the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans is expected to cost about eighty billion dollars over two years. The deal also includes tax cuts aimed at middle income Americans and businesses.Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans support the deal. He said it was an important step to take for the American people. Before the agreement, Senate Republicans had threatened to block other measures unless the tax cuts for the richest Americans were extended. Some Democrats were disappointed that President Obama agreed to the compromise. In two thousand eight, he campaigned on the promise that he would continue tax cuts for the middle class. But he proposed to raise income taxes on families reporting two hundred fifty thousand dollars or more in taxable income. Later in December, both houses of Congress passed the tax bill and President Obama signed it into law. For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 10Dec2011)

Why Aren't The Rich Paying 50% in Taxes?
 
02:13
Tax Day (April 18) is fast approaching, which means anxiety and night sweats for about 99 percent of taxpayers. And bitching and moaning by those at the top of the income pyramid about how they aren't forced to pay more in taxes. Secretary of State and cattle-futures queen Hillary Clinton, super-investor Warren Buffett, and best-selling author Stephen King have all recently carped about how rich folks like them should be paying more in taxes. King recently told a Florida rally, "As a rich person, I'm paying 28 percent in taxes. What I want to ask you is, Why am I not paying 50?" Such rhetorical questions miss the point when it comes to the country's balance sheet. The U.S. doesn't have a revenue problem or a tax-rate problem. We've got a spending problem. Since 1950, revenue from all sources has averaged around 18 percent of Gross Domestic Product, despite top tax rates that have fluctuated from over 90 percent to the high 20-percent range. So despite all efforts to jack up revenue (or reduce it), that's what the government can expect to work with. Yet spending has averaged about 20 percent of GDP - and is currently at a whopping 25 percent of GDP, a figure not seen since World War II. President Obama's budget plan forecasts spending at 23 percent of GDP over the next decade while Rep. Paul Ryan's GOP plan calls for 20.5 percent. There's your deficit right there, folks. But King, Clinton, and Buffett can always pay more in taxes to retire federal debt held by the public. Just go to http://treasurydirect.gov and make a voluntary donation to reduce the national debt held by the public. So far in calender 2011, Treasury has pulled in an $125,000! Which means there's only about $8.99 trillion to go. Written and produced by Meredith Bragg and Nick Gillespie. About 2 minutes. Go to http://reason.tv for links, downloads, and other videos.

Use SEC to ensure compliance Financial transaction tax http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_transaction_tax Among the first proponents of a financial transaction tax was John Maynard Keynes, who first proposed his version in 1936. He proposed that a small transaction tax should be levied on dealings on Wall Street, in the United States, where he argued that excessive speculation by uninformed financial traders increased volatility. For Keynes, the key issue was the proportion of 'speculators' in the market, and his concern that, if left unchecked, these types of players would become too dominant. Keynes writes: "Speculators may do no harm as bubbles on a steady stream of enterprise. But the situation is serious when enterprise becomes the bubble on a whirlpool of speculation. (1936:159)" "The introduction of a substantial Government transfer tax on all transactions might prove the most serviceable reform available, with a view to mitigating the predominance of speculation over enterprise in the United States. (1936:159-60)" In 2001, James Tobin looked back at the 1994 economic crisis in Mexico, the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, and the 1998 Russian financial crisis, and said: "[My proposed] tax [idea] on foreign exchange transactions.....dissuades speculators as many investors invest their money in foreign exchange on a very short-term basis. If this money is suddenly withdrawn, countries have to drastically increase interest rates for their currency to still be attractive. But high interest is often disastrous for a national economy, as the nineties' crises in Mexico, South East Asia and Russia have proven..."

Buffett Declines To Support 'Buffett Rule' Or President's New Stimulus
 
01:59
WASHINGTON, September 30--Today on CNBC, Warren Buffett declined on multiple occasions to offer his support for either the "Buffett Rule"--President Obama's plan to increase taxes on higher-income families--or the president's new stimulus package, which would increase federal borrowing by nearly half a trillion dollars. Transcript follows (from Real Clear Politics): CNBC: "Are you happy that the way it is being described. Is the program that the White House has presented a million dollars and over your program? " Warren Buffett: "Well, the precise program which will -- I don't know what their program will be. My program would be on the very high incomes that are taxed very low. Not just high incomes. Somebody making $50 million a year playing baseball, his taxes won't change. Make $50 million a year appearing on television, his income won't change. But, if they make a lot of money and pay a very low tax rate, like me, it would be changed by a minimum tax that would only bring them up to what other people pay." CNBC: "Does that mean you disagree with the president's new jobs proposal which would be paid for by raising taxes on households with incomes of over $250,000." Buffett: "That's another program that I won't be discussing. My program is to have a tax on ultra-rich people who are very tax rates. Not just all rich people. It would probably apply to 50,000 people in a population of 300 million."

Obama's War That Isn't a War
 
02:36
Since at least the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, American foreign policy has been drifting- comprising a series of ad hoc interventions absent a national consensus about when to use force and lacking an underlying set of reliable, core principles. That drift continues with President Obama's speech about our war with Libya- and includes the simple fact that our commander in chief couldn't even acknowledge that we're in a war and that we've taken sides against someone he calls a "tyrant who murdered opponents at home and abroad, and terrorized innocent people around the world -- including Americans who were killed by Libyan agents." Dropping bombs, shooting missiles, deploying massive amounts of personnel and power - all of these are generally understood as acts of war. But Obama can't admit that we're waging war because then he would have to acknowledge what his critics correctly underscore: Constitutionally, he doesn't have a right to do this sort of thing unilaterally when the country isn't facing a clear and present danger. We know this because of Obama himself. In 2007, while a US senator and presidential candidate, he flatly told The Boston Globe, "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation." No president was worse at foreign policy than George W. Bush, who came to power amid promises of a "humble foreign policy" and then mired us in two intractable conflicts that even supporters grant were poorly executed under his command. Yet even Bush pushed to get a fig leaf of authorization from Congress before the shooting began. Obama's Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, instead brandished unanimity among NATO leaders as proof we were doing the right thing: "All 28 allies have...now authorized military authorities to develop an operations plan for NATO to take on the broader civilian protection mission under Resolution 1973." As if NATO, a Cold War alliance conceived to protect the free nations of Europe from a threat that went missing 20 years ago, is a substitute for, say, the American people and their elected representatives. Who knows how long will be in Libya - whether under US or NATO command. It might be a few months or it might be many years. But this much is certain: Our actions there won't have been authorized by the American people. And they provide no guide to where we'll end up next. Approximately 2.30 minutes.

Obama intervened in the troubled automotive industry in March 2009, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including the sale of Chrysler to Italian automaker Fiat and a reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company, with the Canadian government shouldering a 12% stake. In June 2009, dissatisfied with the pace of economic stimulus, Obama called on his cabinet to accelerate the investment. He signed into law the Car Allowance Rebate System, known colloquially as "Cash for Clunkers", that had mixed results. The Congressional Budget Office and a broad range of economists credit Obama's stimulus plan for economic growth. The CBO released a report stating that the stimulus bill increased employment by 1--2.1 million while conceding that "It is impossible to determine how many of the reported jobs would have existed in the absence of the stimulus package."Although an April 2010 survey of members of the National Association for Business Economics showed an increase in job creation (over a similar January survey) for the first time in two years, 73% of the 68 respondents believed that the stimulus bill has had no impact on employment.

Rebuilding America's Schools Act
 
01:47
90 Second Summaries: Season 2, Episode 22 H.R. 2394: Rebuilding America's Schools Act Introduced 6/24/2011 Sponsor: Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY15) Watch this episode of 90 Second Summaries at http://bit.ly/S02E22 Cosponsors: 1 (Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO2)). Number of cosponsors expected to grow in coming weeks. Up-to-date list at: http://1.usa.gov/n0mbxk Status: Referred to Ways & Means Committee. No action scheduled. Is unlikely to move as a stand-alone bill, but may be included in a larger jobs package similar to President Obama's American Jobs Act. Senate Companion: S. 796, sponsored by Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV). 4 D cosponsors. In Finance Committee, no action scheduled. Purpose: If there is such a thing as a prototypical economic stimulus project, construction and modernization of school buildings must be considered part of that category. It serves multiple purposes -- creating well-paid local jobs that cannot be outsourced, investing in our children's future, and enhancing long-run economic competitiveness. Thus, it is no surprise that an instrument to finance school building upgrades, known as Qualified School Construction Bonds, was included in the 2009 Recovery Act. However, with employment numbers still anemic and the stimulus money virtually all spent, the program must be reauthorized and extended in order to continue. Meanwhile, in reaction to the excessive focus on austerity in Washington amidst a sluggish economy, the Congressional Progressive Caucus embarked on a Speakout for Good Jobs Now listening tour over the summer. As a result of their encounters, they have crafted the "Rebuild the American Dream Framework". H.R. 2394 is one of the highlighted bills in this agenda. Summary: The Rebuilding America's Schools Act renews and strengthens two major school construction bond programs through FY2015. Specifically, it: • Extends the Qualified School Construction Bonds stimulus provision, which allocates $11 billion/year for the rehabilitation, repair, equipping of existing school buildings as well as land purchase and construction of new schools, through 2015. The program allows school districts to borrow money at zero interest, as the federal government offers a tax credit to lenders in lieu of interest payments. • Extends the Qualified Zone Academy Bonds provision, originally enacted in 1997, through 2015 at the stimulus-enhanced level of $1.4 billion/year. • Modifies the QZAB program to allow construction of new schools and waive a 10% private match in certain circumstances in order to increase funding flexibility. Note: President Obama has likewise called for school modernization in his new American Jobs Act. That provision goes further than H.R. 2394, offering $25 billion of direct grant money instead of a more indirect bonding mechanism. CBO Score: None provided. Supporters: most Democrats, President Obama, teachers and local school districts, etc. • Supporters see this as a win-win proposal, creating jobs in the short-term while investing in future prosperity and global competitiveness through a stronger education system. Opponents: most Republicans, Tea Party activists • Opponents view this project as another in a long line of failed stimulus proposals. They believe only the private sector, not government, can create jobs, and the best way to turn the economy around is to shrink the government.

President Obama's Health Reforms-Money for Health Care Reform, Rooting Out Waste, Fraud, and Abuse!
 
06:16
24th November 2009. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp0904854 Finding Money for Health Care Reform — Rooting Out Waste, Fraud, and Abuse John K. Iglehart N Engl J Med 2009; 361:229-231July 16, 2009 The National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, an organization of about 100 private insurers and public agencies, estimates that some $60 billion (about 3% of total annual health care spending) is lost to fraud every year, but that figure is considered conservative. In 2008, government-wide "improper payments" cost the U.S. Treasury $72 billion, or about 4% of total outlays for the related programs.1 Of that amount, 50% took the form of reimbursements to providers, medical suppliers, and other Medicare and Medicaid vendors. Medicaid had an estimated improper-payment rate of 10.5%, or $18.6 billion, for the federal share of Medicaid expenditures — the highest rate of any federal program. Improper payments have been a "long standing, widespread, and significant problem" for the federal government,1 but Congress has not always been willing to appropriate the monies that the executive branch seeks for antifraud activities. In 4 of the past 5 years, Congress rejected Bush administration requests to provide an additional $579 million to combat health care fraud on the grounds that doing so would reduce budgets for curing cancer and combating obesity.2 Virtually no academic researchers study health care--related fraud activities, largely because — as Malcolm Sparrow, a Harvard professor of the practice of public management, testified recently — it "falls awkwardly between the traditional disciplines of health economics, health policy, crime control policy, anomaly detection and pattern recognition." In the past, legislators have failed to appropriate sufficient funds to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid. According to Weems, "there is not enough money [for the CMS] to be able to even pay the bills in a reasonable way. The agency feels vulnerable . . . especially on the fraud issue. . . . Right now, we way, way, way underspend for fraud and abuse."4 Weems said a major reason for the shortfall is that the CMS derives its administrative budget from the same appropriation subcommittees as the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and "the political interests of legislators are far better served by increasing the budgets" of those agencies "or protecting one of their threatened hospitals or nursing homes." One of the developments of concern to federal officials charged with fighting fraud is the recent increase of organized crime in the health care sector. As the DHHS's Morris testified recently, "Health care fraud is attractive to organized crime because the penalties are lower than those for other . . . offenses . . . there are low barriers to entry . . . schemes are easily replicated . . . and there is a perception of a low risk of detection." This article (10.1056/NEJMp0904854) was published on June 10, 2009, at NEJM.org. SOURCE INFORMATION Mr. Iglehart is a national correspondent for the Journal.

Obama Nominee Crumbles Trying To Defend WH Budget Deception
 
06:35
The Budget Committee held a hearing today to consider the nomination of Heather Higginbottom to be President Obama's deputy budget director. Sen. Sessions confronted the nominee over false assertions from the White House regarding the president's budget. Both President Obama and his budget director have repeatedly said that the president's budget allows us to "live within our means," "spend money that we have each year," and "begin paying down our debt." (http://1.usa.gov/hvENzK, http://youtu.be/rTuzmyMwH7E) Numerous fact-check organizations have found these statements to be false, (http://goo.gl/ZuitF) and Sessions has argued that these inaccurate claims undermine efforts to confront our growing fiscal crisis. In reality, the budget that President Obama submitted adds $13 trillion to the debt, never has a deficit less than $600 billion, and spends more than it takes in every single year. And by the tenth year, interest payments on our debt will rise to $844 billion--more than we spend on Medicare or defense. Note: Ms. Higginbottom, a former advisor for Obama's presidential campaign, has no formal budget training or experience. UPDATE 3/18: CBO released its analysis of the president's budget today, finding that the Obama proposal actually conceals $2.3 trillion in deficits. Using more realistic economic assumptions than the White House used, total deficits over the next decade will reach $9.5 trillion. (http://1.usa.gov/fTc9lT)

Candidate Question IRS - Redistribution of Wealth.MOV
 
01:10
Hi, I'm Ed Stronski in Liverpool, NY Because of my experience preparing tax returns I cringe whenever I hear a politician refer to fair taxes. No one seems to understand it's not just that 50% are non-taxpayers, they are also the primary recipients of refundable credits like the $50 billion a year of Earned Income Credit. You see, an individual who made $16,000 last year paid $268 of tax. If you claimed 2 children with that same income you paid zero tax and got a so called refund of $7386 from these credits. Oh yeah, states like NY match about a third of the big credits. And all these cash handouts aren't taken into account as income when things like food stamp eligibility is determined. Do you think most American taxpayers know this? These credits have increased by a factor of 10 since their inception. Can you say that the primary function of the IRS hasn't become redistribution of wealth? State what you know and what you think.
