Economic Recovery: How to Avoid it for Political Gain

Starving "We the Beast" under Conservative Policy

GOP Legislators won't even bring the Jobs Bill up for vote, since by doing that they'd expose their own betrayal of Public Trust while voting in lockstep against it, by those actions blocking economic growth and resulting intended Recovery in the Public Arena, openly exposed to all.

Instead, their party representatives quietly refuse to devote ANY attention to the Jobs Bill for those same reasons, it would improve the economy and allow increased Jobs Market Growth (to the benefit of we “99%” who approve of that).

Bottom line? Under GOP policy our country cannot be allowed to substantially recover before the 2012 election, economic growth won't be allowed to reflect positive credit to President Obama even if impending Catastrophic Economic Failure is the alternative.

Implementation of those bills implies REVENUE of course, and Republicans simply cannot accept it, no increased taxation of the Economic Elite can be allowed for under current TeaPublican policy.

WHY is the Republican Party so adamant about rejecting ALL TAX REVENUE? Besides obvious intended slow starvation of the Economy and reliant Social programs, I mean.

As mentioned above, “Starving the Beast” is considered to be a legitimate long term (Disgusting) strategy for the GOP but is not entirely relevant to the current campaign environment.

The 2012 Election is the answer, of course. But we've not yet here identified how complete denial of ALL REVENUE will gain them that election, other than immediate economic impact to be blamed on the President. But that's only an effect, not motivation for the intended cause of current revenue attrition.

And attempting to blame we Dems/Liberals for "Party of NO" legislative blockades is a risky proposal at best, the Public won't remain blissfully ignorant forever, not even the Conservative Drones.

Other ideas? Perhaps an “Oath” against taxes?

Think some largely insubstantial “Oath to Grover Norquist” is their persistent over-riding concern?

Only substantial to the extent that campaign money can be withheld from RNC (National) sources, but let's discuss what's being presented to the public, an "Oath of Honor" under pretense of "Loyalty" to their party.

An imaginary imperative of such VAST prevailing weight that Oath of Office is completely dissolved under the stress of overwhelming gravitational pull, right? Yeah, sure, must keep them awake at night

Nope. What motivates the TeaPublicans isn’t lofty ideals, they’re concerned (obsessively!) with Campaign Finance, of course. They're trying to assure future resources, "Super PAC" and related Corporate financial support.

They've sold the Trust we've given them (IE Oath of Office) to the highest bidder, they're now wholly owned, functionally reliant Corporate tools.

Accomplished by refusing to cooperate with ANY programs relying on Tax Revenue, in effect depriving *We The People* of jobs and critical infrastructure while providing a *Tax Free Future* for the Corporations at our expense.

More about Grover Norquist?
