The New Poor
Millions of Unemployed Face Years
By PETER S. GOODMAN, February 21, 2010, The New York Times
When I was the Democratic nominee opposing Rep. Burton
in 1988, my main issue was "jobs." Since the great
depression of the 1930s America has seen politicians
using "tax cuts" to try to increase employment. With
President Reagan, his eight years in office were based on
"tax cuts" in order to stimulate the economy. As is well
known, when taxes are "cut", there is a tremendous loss of
tax revenues, thus creating "deficits" in our annual federal
budget. Reagan promised that his "tax cuts" would put
more monies for investments and jobs into the economy by
creating more jobs. More jobs would increase more "tax
revenues" which would help decrease the national debt.
Reagan promised to cut income taxes by 30% over three
years. Our great country was nearly 200 years old and the
national debt, in 1980, had not gone over a trillion dollars.
(It was 980 billion dollars.)
Within eight years, when Mr. Reagan left office in 1989, our
national debt had grown to almost $ 2.9 trillion.
Reaganomics, instead of deceasing the national debt had
actually tripled it. Jobs were being sent to Mexico and
unemployment was growing. People needed work. "Jobs"
became my # one campaign issue!
Bill and Hillary Clinton's NAFTA cost America
At the end of fiscal 2001, the national debt had grown to
$ 5.08 trillion. George W. Bush took office in 2001; he and
Congressman Pence promised to lower our taxes and to
help pay off our growing national debt, through the
creation of more jobs via The Bush-Pence "tax cuts."
Today, after eleven years of "Scamonomics" of George W.
Bush and Rep. Mike Pence, our national debt has grown to
15.5 trillion dollars and unemployment is @ 17%. "Tax
Cuts" do not create jobs, only more wealth for the wealthy.
Neil Irwin of The Washington Post has written, Jan.2, 2010
"Aughts were a lost decade for U.S. economy, workers"
some excerpts,"There has been zero net job creation since
December 1999. No previous decade going back to the
1940s had job growth of less than 20 percent. Economic
output rose at its slowest rate of any decade since the
1930s as well.
Middle-income households made less in 2008, when
adjusted for inflation, than they did in 1999 -- and the
number is sure to have declined further during a difficult
2009. The Aughts were the first decade of falling median
incomes since figures were first compiled in the 1960s.
And the net worth of American households -- the value of
their houses, retirement funds and other assets minus
debts -- has also declined when adjusted for inflation,
compared with sharp gains in every previous decade since
data were initially collected in the 1950s."
Mr. Irwin's article should dispel any of Rep. Pence's claims
that "tax cuts" create jobs.
Today, there is a greater disparity in wealth than at any time
in our country's history. Tax cuts are "socialism" for the
rich! The rich have become richer and the poor have

The contents of the above should be our goals!
In 1988, the Reagan-Bush policies of "free trade" had
already begun to destroy our "tariff based" economy.
Remember, "tax cuts" were supposed to create jobs, which
would create more tax revenues. Every year of the Reagan
presidency created the loss of more jobs, larger and larger
trade deficits and larger budget deficits. .
This loss of manufacturing jobs was my first issue; and
that, my friends, was twenty years ago.I didn't even win
Madison County which was home to thousands of jobs in
the auto industry. Today, those jobs are gone!

An excerpt: "The number of people not on temporary layoff surged 220,000 in
August and the level continues to reach new highs, now at 8.1 million. This
accounts for 53.9% of the unemployed — again a record high — and this is a
proxy for permanent job loss, in other words, these jobs are not coming back.
Against that backdrop, the number of people who have been looking for a job
for at least six months with no success rose a further half-percent in August, to
stand at 5 million — the long-term unemployed now represent a record 33% of
the total pool of joblessness. "
In 1980, the income of a C.E.O. of a major corporation was
40X that of the income of the average worker in his
corporation. Today, the income of a C.E.O. of a major
corporation is 160 - 400 X that of the income of the
average worker in his corporation. So who has benefited
from "free trade" and "free markets" and deregulation? The
average worker or the corporate elite?

since the recession began. Do you really think those 10

On Nov. 11, 2009 unemployment of American workers was
at a 26 year high at 10.2%! Can I call Rep. Pence a liar now,
because he said the Bush-Pence tax cuts, (welfare for the
wealthy) would produce jobs?
Please read: Thom Hartmann's "When Americans No
Longer Own America" for a very comprehensive
understanding of what has happened to our great America!
An excerpt: "These policies have kneecapped the American
middle class. Our nation's largest employer has gone from
being the unionized General Motors to the poverty-wages
Wal-Mart. Americans have gone from having a net savings
rate around 10 percent in the 1970s to a minus .5 percent in
2005 - meaning that they're going into debt or selling off
their assets just to maintain their lifestyle."

On 02-12-08, Yahoo News carried the following AP release.
"GM posts biggest annual US auto loss."
Here's what really caught my attention;
"The Detroit-based auto maker said it was offering a new
round of buyouts to all 74,000 of its U.S. hourly workers
who are represented by the United
Auto Workers. GM won't say how many workers it hopes
to shed, but under its contract with the UAW, it will be able
to replace up to 16,000 workers doing non-assembly jobs
with new employees who will be paid half the old
wages of $28 per hour."
Perhaps these new 16,000 jobs paying $14.00 per hour, half
of the current hourly wage of $28 per hour are the new jobs
that Zionist Rep. "Neocon Mike" Pence boasts about when
he claims that tax cuts for the wealthy, including himself of
course, create new jobs.
Now, do you the reader and voter understand why Rep.
Mike Pence is a coward when he refused to debate me?
How can he defend these policies?
Rep. "AIPAC Mike Pence would have everyone believe that
tax cuts for the very wealthy ($130,000 for a person with an
income of $1 million) create jobs.
IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN TELL THAT TO THE WORKERS AT
DELPHI, VISTEON, PFIZER, KODAK, G-M, FORD,
CHRYSLER AND CITICORP!

yawning wider than ever, and the number of extremely
impoverished is at a three decade high, a report out

16 million Americans live in 'deep poverty' defined as a
family of four with two children earning less than 9,903
dollars-one half the federal poverty line figure."
--- For individuals the deep poverty threshold was an
income under 5, 080 dollars a year."
---"The McClatchy analysis found that the number of
Americans grew by 26 percent from 2000 to 2005,"
---That's 56 percent faster than the overall poverty
population grew in the same period." "Worker productivity
has increased dramatically since the brief recession of
2001. but wages and job growth have lagged behind.
---At the same time, the share of the national income going
to corporate profits has dwarfed the amount going to
wages and salaries,"

working class families, adjusted for inflation, has fallen for
five straight years.

Those countries who have huge trade surpluses with the U.
S. are able to take those profits and (1) buy up more and
more of our national debt, and also (2) use that money to
buy more and more control of American companies.
What has happened to our once great country with a
booming economy and thus prosperity? One of the most
practical papers explaining this is;
When Americans No Longer Own America by
Thom Hartman. This is a must read.
What has been the driving factors in the outsourcing and
offshoring of American jobs and globalization and a lower
standard of living?
Four words! Cheaper Labor -CORPORATE GREED!
Remember, 4 million manufacturing jobs have been lost in
the past decade! Now is any one stupid enough to believe
Rep. "Neocon Mike" Pence or President Obama when they
say that tax cuts, (for the wealthy) create jobs?
In February, 2007, Chrysler announced 13,000 job cuts,
that's 132,000 jobs lost in the auto industry since May, 2005!
(2) On March 27, 2007 Citicorp announced it may cut as
many as 15,000 jobs!
(3) March 26, 2007 on Yahoo News, "Intel plans $2.5B chip
factory in China."
(4) Kodak Corporation had cut 25,000 to 27,000 jobs since
2004 and last year announced another 3,000 lay offs.
(5) Pfizer Corporation recently announced 10,000 job cuts,
2200 of which are to be U.S. sales positions.
(6) Citigroup, the nation's largest financial institution
announced on April 11, 2007 that it was cutting 17,000 jobs.
I have included two papers to help make this point.

Technology companies are seeing a rebound in business,
but top executives have said any jobs added to meet
growing demand will likely be in countries where labor is
cheaper than the United States.
In closing on this section on the economy, I have used
third party material in order to document the seriousness of
our economy. Rep. Mike Pence has been in office for
eleven years and like Mr. Bush and President Obama, he
has turned his back on America's working class families,
being a supporter of "globalization."

and watch the "offshoring " of jobs to China, Mexico and

loss by either supporting Rep. Pence or your
apathy and indifference to your job situation. In 2012, will
you, the voter, help me restore good jobs for America by
supporting my candidacy and voting for me?
