  •  NOT a great diary and here is why: (0+ / 0-)

    These are all great questions and valid ones, but there are WAY TOO MANY of them about WAY TOO MANY SUBJECTS and they dilute YOUR impact and OURS.

    There is one question that should and must be paramount....JOBS!

    What are you doing as a Congressman to stimulate JOBS?

    You have cut taxes to the lowest level in 50 years because the GOP insisted that doing so would encourage business to create more jobs and it hasn't.  We've followed this route for a decade now and it hasn't worked.  Why will more tax cuts or failure to end existing tax cuts change things?

    Don't stand there and tell me we need to "get the economy going again" and "create more jobs" without giving me specific examples of what you and your fellow Congressmen are doing to "create more jobs."

    And don't tell me that you are doing it with more tax cuts because it hasn't worked, it isn't working and it won't work.

    Business has massively low rates, the wealthy have much lower rates than they ever have, corporations are sitting on more cash than at any time in their history and there are no new jobs.  

    JOBS JOBS JOBS.....now matter how you frame your questions they should all revolve around that one message.

    You start asking all those other questions and you are diluting your impact and playing right into the hands of the GOP because right now their core message is "Obama is in power and there are no jobs....it is all his fault."

    We know the reason is that Congress has hamstrung him at every turn and been blatant in saying that their sole goal is to make him a one-term President by denying him any successes at any cost, but they are also clearly ready to pin the blame on him and by repeating that lie over and over, as they have done so often in the past, they are winning the message war.

    JOBS JOBS JOBS....just WHAT Congressperson have YOU and your colleagues done to get the economy going again and create new jobs?

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
