REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS IMPROVE EMPLOYMENT NUMBERS

In his July 13th email, Delegate Scott Lingamfelter offered an observation. What was the subject? With respect to jobs, which party produces the best results?

Cheap Talk vs. Results

“Talk is cheap”, as the saying goes when people brag about accomplishments but offer little evidence that they can produce. Sound familiar? Like President Obama every day?

Consider this. According to the The Examiner last Friday, newly elected Republican governors in 2010 have reduced unemployment in their states compared to states that elected Democratic governors in the same year. The 17 states that elected conservative governors in 2010 saw unemployment decrease by 1.35% whereas US as a whole, where joblessness in January 2011 was 9.1% and is now 8.2%, witnessed only a slight declined of 0.9%. The eight states that elected Democratic governors in 2010 didn’t do much better. People without a job actually increased in one state (New York) and only declined by an average of 0.95%, in other states controlled by Democrat governors.

It should be clear to anyone that the policies Republican governors are implementing are working well, whereas states in the grip of Democrat governors are coming up short, or embarrassingly, doing only slightly better that the US as a whole.

You would think that they and our feckless and extraordinarily incapable President would take a lesson from Republicans who are reducing spending levels, avoiding tax increases, and getting rid of needless waste, fraud, and abuse.

But don’t hold your breath. Many Democrats are still calling for more, not less spending, particularly Obama who is simply clueless when it comes to understanding how the free enterprise system works. Yet you can count on one thing. When the President shows up in Virginia this week, he will keep up the drum beat to repeal the Bush tax cuts on those making more than $250,000 a year, which would hurt small businesses and halt job creation.  To be sure, he will offer NO solutions but there will be plenty of blaming. It’s all he knows how to do, cheap talk.

So what’s the take-away? It’s this. Republican policies at the state level are working. Obama and Obama-like policies in other states are failing.

Folks, there is no place on the sidelines during the election season for anyone who cares about this country. We must remove the wrecking crew in Washington and return our nation to its constitutional and free enterprise roots. If we don’t our future is in grave peril.

On to Victory!
