Chuck Fleischmann introduces plan for ‘real job growth’

U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., announced a jobs plan this morning based on getting “the government out of the way,” according to a news release.

The ideas listed in the freshman representative’s 33-page proposal include the temporary elimination of the capital gains tax, a reining-in of regulatory agencies and the utilization of domestic energy sources.

“I am proud to introduce solutions I believe will result in real job growth, not government growth,” Fleischmann said in the news release.

In recent weeks, a few local groups have accused Fleischmann of not focusing on job creation. They have said he favors tax breaks for corporations over jobs for average Americans.

Here are this bozos ideas. 1. 0% Capital Gains Tax 2. Rein in Regulatory Agencies 3. Stability in the Marketplace 4. Exploration-Based Energy Policy 5. Tort Reform 6. Tax Reform 7. Free Trade

He list seven items in his plan and not a single item on that list benefits the average man. It's a wishlist from his corporate sponsors. I can't see a job anywhere on that list. What I do see is a list of policies meant to transfer power from the people to the special interests. This idiot wishes another 10 years on us like the last 10.

Chuckie, go back to your sandbox and play. You have no clue. None of those proposals will make me hire employees. What I need are customers. My business is tied to the home industry and is very slow now. Pull your head out Chuckie.

Is 33 pages necessary when one sentence is fine:
Disrupt Obama until January 2013.

Why don't you B-O-Z-O-S in Washington take back all those trillions of dollars of bailout money you gave to the crooked banks and give it to all of us home owners so we can pay off our UPSIDE DOWN MORTGAGES?

Then maybe we’d have the money to start buying cars, boats, appliances and all the things manufacturers make so they can start hiring people? Economic growth starts at the CUSTOMER level…..YOU BUNCH OF B-O-Z-O-S!!!!

I appreciate Chuck offering specific ideas for the debate. More Republicans need to step up and not preach the same old cliche's.
