"If You Love Me, Help Me Pass This Bill!"

Wednesday that is what President Obama told a crowd in North Carolina while promoting The American Jobs Act. He asked everyone who cared about the country's future, joblessness and their own pocket, to call their appointed legislators. Call your US congressman and your US Senator and let them know you want the American Jobs Act passed!

I was up for some reason early today and watched CNN coverage of 9/11. I was moved to remember a very sad point in American History and now, reality.

How will the American Jobs Act be financed?

The president said Thursday during his address to Congress that savings from the July 2011 debt ceiling negotiations will go toward financing the American Jobs Act. Watch the video below.
The American Jobs Act will not add to the deficit.  It will be paid for.  And here’s how. 
"The agreement we passed in July will cut government spending by about $1 trillion over the next 10 years.  It also charges this Congress to come up with an additional $1.5 trillion in savings by Christmas.  Tonight, I am asking you to increase that amount so that it covers the full cost of the American Jobs Act.  And a week from Monday, I’ll be releasing a more ambitious deficit plan -- a plan that will not only cover the cost of this jobs bill, but stabilize our debt in the long run."

"This approach is basically the one I’ve been advocating for months.  In addition to the trillion dollars of spending cuts I’ve already signed into law, it’s a balanced plan that would reduce the deficit by making additional spending cuts, by making modest adjustments to health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid and by reforming our tax code in a way that asks the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share.   What’s more, the spending cuts wouldn’t happen so abruptly that they’d be a drag on our economy, or prevent us from helping small businesses and middle-class families get back on their feet right away."

I will put links to blog posts here from time to time and I would like you to read and comment. Please watch, subscribe to the videos too. Thank you!
Oh Yeah, I started a new blog!
I began DIY Life Hack Mamma because that is what I do most of the time: figure stuff out.
 If you've ever heard of the phrase champagne taste on a beer budget, you've found me. I make soap from scratch because regular soap does not agree with my skin, I recreate restaurant meals at home, create appliances I cannot install or afford (yet,) and in general, I figure out a way from no way. I pray a lot too. Join me on my journey. It will be fun. 
Everything you see me do is for entertainment purposes only. All of my experiments are for my purposes only. It's fun to watch.
