EVEN DEMOCRATS ARE AGAINST OBAMA’S STIMULUS 2.0

As The Hill’s Alexander Bolton writes, “President Obama received a slap from members of his own party Tuesday as the Senate voted to block his $447 billion jobs package. The jobs plan, which the president has spent much of the last month touting on a cross-country tour, fell well short of the 60 votes it needed to proceed.” Continue reading “EVEN DEMOCRATS ARE AGAINST OBAMA’S STIMULUS 2.0”

GOVERNOR CORBETT UNVEILS MARCELLUS SHALE PLAN

Governor Corbett announced his plan to implement key recommendations of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission. The full proposal and speech can be viewed here.

Regarding this proposal, PA GOP Chairman Gleason said: Natural gas drilling is an important engine of job creation and economic growth in our Commonwealth, and with his recent Marcellus Shale proposal, Governor Corbett has brought forth a plan to ensure the continued growth of the industry while equipping community leaders with the authority to address impacts the industry might have on the most important level – the local level. The natural gas industry has been a tremendous job creator, and Governor Corbett’s proposal ensures that these businesses can continue to provide high quality, well-paying jobs to hardworking Pennsylvanians.”

SEPTEMBER JOBS NUMBERS

Unemployment stayed at 9.1% during the month of September, serving as another reminder that reminder that President Obama’s economic policies are failing to put Pennsylvanians back to work. The $825 billion President Obama spent on the first stimulus hasn’t delivered, proving that we can’t afford to double down on the same failed policies with a new Stimulus 2.0.

PA GOP Chairman Gleason released the following statement: “Thanks to job-friendly leadership from Governor Corbett who has championed pro-growth, pro-jobs policies all year, Republicans have been able to keep President Obama’s disasterous economic policies at arm’s length. Tax hikes on small businesses and a half a trillion dollars in ‘stimulus’ spending are not the answers to our economic problems. With this latest month of stagnant job growth and no new solutions from President Obama, Pennsylvania will be looking for new leadership in the White House in 2012.”
