Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
                     National Edition
     Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
*************

Speaker Boehner’s Adds His Jobs Pitch To Obama’s, So Where’s The Beef?
with
Timothy Canova, professor of international economic law and author of
The Federal Reserve We Need and the Legacy of the Clinton Bubble

House Speaker John Boehner added  his two cents to the pot of job creation plans  
when he called for a total reform of the tax code, fewer federal regulations and an
expansion of infrastructure projects and domestic energy production. Boehner’s
plan targets the employer side by lowering the corporate tax rate and rolling back
environmental and labor regulations. Meanwhile, Obama’s plan focuses partially
on the employee side of the equation, with payroll tax breaks and extended
unemployment insurance, infrastructure projects and aid to the States for Education
Jobs.  We’ll dissect the respective proposals, see the prospects of either plan to
put America back to work and comment on Obama’s deficit reduction proposals to
be submitted to Congress.Are Medicare and Medicaid on the chopping block?

Plus The Socialist Bank of North America
with Dr. Rozanne Everson Junker, political scientist

North Dakota has long had a state bank which unlike private banks has faithfully
served the people and the state in good times and bad.  We've talked about a
public option for health care, but why not for banks? Thanks to Michael Moore for
this case study.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
