"according to a new analysis by the Economic Policy Institute, a liberal think tank"

Independent analysis my ass.

But what about all the NEW jobs it would create for the job eliminators?

So, Romney eliminated jobs at Bain and his economic plan would basically do the same. Color me shocked.

It's independent of the Romney campaign, which promises to create jobs with no proof of how those jobs will magically appear.

Yeah, that's all I needed to read. In other news, a Conservative Think Tank sees Romney's plan as creating infinite jobs and while Obama's plan would open a portal to deep space and allow an alliance of Cybermen, Daleks, Sontarans, and a cloned version of the Slitheen family to destroy humanity.

Well, the fact that tax cuts for "job creators" has been costing jobs for the last 30 years makes it obvious that the study is right.

Damn, and the Republicans cutting funding for Torchwood will really suck for us then.

I can't get over how spectacularly wrong Romney is about everything.
 
2012-09-27 09:55:05 AM
Think of all the repo jobs Romney will have created! There could be all new reality shows based on them. Truly, he is a job creator.

Tell the truth - Romney has clearly stated how these jobs would be created: a spontaneous wave of optimism and confidence inspired by his leadership.
 
2012-09-27 09:55:44 AM
How do they estimate how many jobs something will create, anyway?

Liberal think tanks estimate how much demand is created, and conservative ones examine tax rates?

Independent simply means "not in the employ of either campaign". There does not exist any organization which does not have an agenda that they push through their analysis, so un-biased analysis is literally impossible to come by.

Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz similarly told Bloomberg TV in June that Romney's proposed spending cuts would "worsen the jobs deficit and significantly increase the likelihood of a recession."

Who is going to argue with this guy?

It is non-partisan and independent. However, it the mission to help poorer segments of society is indeed a liberal value.

There are many independent groups that have policy goals that are either conservative or liberal. The fact that they focused policy concerns speaks to their independence (e.g., NRA, PETA, Greenpeace, KKK)

#1 Liberal think tank.
#2 Romney's budget would take away middle class governmental jobs and replace them with minimum wage part time jobs. Net loss in my opinion....also why Obama's jobs numbers don't tell the full truth.

Common sense has a well-documented liberal bias.

Eight labor unions made a five-year funding pledge to the Economic Policy Institute at its inception: AFSCME, United Auto Workers, United Steelworkers, United Mine Workers, International Association of Machinists, Communications Workers of America, Service Employees International Union, and United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

Romney would be bad for unions news at 11
 
2012-09-27 09:59:37 AM
Romney's experience is slashing jobs and bankrupting companies, and pocketing huge management fees, which is great for him, but not so good for the companies that he "harvested." Do Republicans actually think this is the kind of business experience that will give him the expertise to manage the American economy, or are they just being willingly obtuse?

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, IT WAS INDEPENDENT.

But it was also liberal.

It might have been better if they had some other, nonpartisan organization that at least agreed with them in some aspect. I like CBO stats, but I'll take what I can get.

More liberal lies and scheming.

Even the most cursory of glances at this "report" shows that it doesn't account for jobs created overseas, and it doesn't categorize "inmate" as a profession.

So what you're saying is that our recovery isn't all that it could be because no one fully supports Keynesian economics (including Fartbummster who spent only half of what he should)?

I'm totally fine with dismissing this study as being biased. I'd do the same for studies from the Heritage Foundation or AEI. So let's talk about all the facts and figures that the Romney camp has put out. Oh, right.

Citrate1007: Romney's budget would take away middle class governmental jobs and replace them with minimum wage part time jobs. Net loss in my opinion...


And the fact that government jobs are declining - while private payrolls are growing* - under Obama says...what? At the very least it says that this (minus the "being replaced with min-wage jobs" part, which requires separate proof which I don't have ATM) is already happening under Obama.

Why change horses mid-stream, especially when the guy who wants the job is planning on doing the opposite of what the guy we have is doing - and the guy we have is already showing results. A business-savvy guy like Romney should know that a dependable but low-yield (or slow-growth) investment trumps a high-risk (troughs and peaks) undependable one.

// unless someone else is paying you to invest for them
// then, you can feel free to pimp the "high reward" part and pocket the fees anyway - no real risk there

* slowly, but I'll always take slow growth (ca. 2009-12) over rapid decline (ca. 2007-8).
