Great!

Governor Tomblin and "Lawmakers";

What are you doing?

Are you helping West Virginian's or are you just filling your pockets with whatever crumbs you can grub up from those few corporations who are raping our land, our water, our people and their spirit?

Life is MORE than just a WVU football game, a "balanced budget" or, whatever things you think up to say to GET YOURSELVES RELECTED, eg. "jobs".

This state is dead last in EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING THAT MATTERS!

It is not the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY, the TEACHERS, the TV show "BUCKWILD" or the latest popular VOTE GETTING SLOGAN to come down the pike.

For God's sake, Governor Tomblin,Senator Manchin and "Lawmakers",just do something good ONCE IN A WHILE and stop this stupid, shortsided foolishness.

DO YOUR JOBS!

So they hire consultants to give them the answers they want.

Dems will say a new reulatory bill will not cost ANY jobs.

GOP will say it costs 20,000 jobs.

Consultants will get rich, taxpayers get HOSED as usual.

Severe fiscal tightening in the U.S. will lead to no growth or a contraction in the first two quarters of 2013 and will push unemployment over the 8 percent level, according to Lombard Street Research. Getty Images The unemployed look for job opportunities at the South Florida Workforce center in Miami, Florida.The knock-on effect will mean pain for the business sector, with corporate profits falling after a hit to consumer spending power, the firm said.

"Our view that unemployment could rise above 8 percent and that profits will be squeezed reflects a forecast of nil to negative 2013 (first quarter) growth, and further stagnation in (the second quarter)," a Lombard Street report released on Friday said.

What others are projecting...

I estimate if we have our legislature meet every two years we will save a ton of money and create more job than the legislature has in years. Free advice and no cost. The market will take care of the jobs not government.

The PRIVATE sector is coming back no thanks to government

Government at all levels needs to get out of the way and allow the private sector to get going at full speed

Old long abandoned industrial sites in the region are now seeing new tennants and upstart industries and government must not get in the way

West Virginia is NOT being hurt by the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY, the TEACHERS, the TV show "BUCKWILD".

The popular VOTE GETTING SLOGAN eg. "JOBS." Is just a crock. Tomblin and Manchin love it.

For God's sake, Governor Tomblin, Senator Manchin and "Lawmakers", just do something good -- ONCE IN A WHILE -- and stop all of this stupid, shortsided foolishness.

DO YOUR JOBS!

"Trickle Down Economics" is almost as effective as the "War On Drugs".

Job creation by politicians/and the rich is nothing but a big myth in West Virginia.

Prove that it isn't!

A MYTH.
