"The federal government does not create jobs. They can impede jobs. But they don't create jobs," he said. "The federal government needs to look at Alabama. I'll tell them how to run the government."

No kidding, especially the bit about the federal government not creating jobs.

So does that mead federal spending in Alabama can be cut without repercussions to the state economy?  If I am not mistaken, AL takes in more federal money than it sends out.

Yes, Alabama is renowned for its tremendous economic vitality, and people from all over the world dream of building a fulfilling life there.

Man, Conservatives do so love to make this argument.  It's because they're retards, of course.

The US Government is one of the largest employers on the planet, with only such other major governments like China even in the same league.  It is also THE largest spending organization on the planet, along with all the additional third party jobs that creates.

Not that I honestly expects facts or reality to have ay impact on Conservative positions.  Let's not be ridiculous!

I propose cutting all Federal spending in Alabama for a year.
 
2014-07-24 10:12:07 PM  
Well, y'all are right and wrong.

Alabama government is completely stupid and filled with the croniest of politicians.

But we are gaining a lot of manufacturing jobs but only because we give so many tax breaks that it would almost be stupid not to build here.  Mind you, we don't actually see any money from these businesses because of all those tax breaks.

And Mr. I am not going to raise taxes Bentley announced he was probably going to have to raise taxes.  Because surprise, surprise cutting taxes to the rich and business and increasing taxes on the middle class means we can't pay for basic stuff like roads and education.

Well, the idea that a governor runs the government is a bit delusional. But is the state government well run for what it is in Alabama? Are the departments efficient and effective? Do they achieve a quality of life in the areas affected by government, such as decent roads and a level of policing?

Not that the federal government does the same things as state governments.

How about we close down every military base in Alabama as well as all NASA facilities and ask Mr Governor again about how the Federal Government doesn't create jobs?

Experts long have regarded Alabama's prekindergarten program as one of the county's best but have lamented that it serves so few children.

How stupid do you have to be to fail the entrance exam for pre-kindergarten?

Consider how much more efficiently and effectively those roads would be repaired if they were owned by private entities, and thus maintained by private corporations.

Now consider the number of jobs that those private corporations would create in establishing maintenance staff for all of the roads under their control.

Now realise that by not supporting such a measure, you yourself are impeding job creation.

Now understand that these corporations may have legal standing to sue you for standing in the way of their continued work in contributing to the economic development of the nation.

Then he follows up contradicting the whole "government doesn't create jobs" thing by defending the London Airshow vacation on the state dime as "official state government business" trying to create jobs.

And yesterday he proposed padding the business advertisement recruitment budget by taking the funds out of the education fund.  Really smart idea there, not.

Hell, in Birmingham we tried to raise taxes on the rich and the state told us it was unconstitutional, so we're probably going to raise sales taxes AGAIN.

Dear Governor,

Your largest city is divided into quarters by two different interstates. I-20/59 frequently has large portions collapse leaving it unusable until they find steel plates large enough to prevent cars from falling into the city below. The other, I-65, is so congested and in need of repair that grandparents tell stories of the road being in need of repair when they were children.

Access to insurance is tied for the lowest levels in the country. Education is in a horrible state ranking consistently at the bottom.

Your state constitution still supports segregation in school but no one trusts you to remove it as it is the only thing in the constitution that guarantees a child access to education. It's also the longest and most muddled constitution in the country.

Funny how these people who claim the government doesn't create jobs don't feel the same way when the government talks about closing military bases in their states or cut back on federal employees.

Spending creates jobs.  It doesn't matter who does the spending.

At 340,136 words, the document is 12 times longer than the average state constitution, 40 times longer than the U.S. Constitution, and is the longest still-operative constitution anywhere in the world.[1] (The English version of the Constitution of India, the longest national constitution, is about 117,369 words long, a third of the length.)
