Jobs For America NOW – New Soros Front

From the CPUSA’s Peoples World (formerly the Daily Worker):

Time for big, bold federal jobs program

WASHINGTON – Jobs for America NOW is organizing meetings with lawmakers while they are home for the Easter recess to urge them to pass Rep. George Miller’s $75 billion jobs bill that would create or save as many as one million jobs when they return to the capital.

The actions come on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the enactment of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA) that created millions of jobs during the Great Depression.

"We’ve got a dozen groups planning events on or around April 8, the 75th anniversary of WPA," said Germonique R. Ulmer, a spokesperson for Jobs for America NOW. "The WPA anniversary is time to speak out on the need to take big and bold action to get people back to work."

She added that Jobs for America NOW, a coalition of 60 organizations, is also planning meetings with many lawmakers during the recess to demand that they support Miller’s bill that would prevent the layoff of tens of thousands of public employees by fiscally strapped state and local governments. "Many grassroots groups are setting up meetings with members of Congress while they are home during the recess. It includes events in Nevada, Maine, North Carolina, and Illinois. These meetings are an opportunity to put a human face on the unemployment crisis," she said. "It should leave these lawmakers with a sense that they have to take action when they get back to Washington." She described the Miller bill as a "left over piece of legislation" that should be enacted quickly.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn) announced he is spearheading a nationwide effort during the recess to muster the 216 votes to push the Miller jobs bill through. Ellison said passage of the measure should be a "slam-dunk" if he succeeds in lining up the lawmakers.

Ellison and Miller met with members of the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties and some of the 60 grassroots organizations affiliated with Jobs for America NOW to win endorsements of the bill.

Like every other measure to assist the unemployed and the uninsured, the Miller bill faces fanatical Republican opposition especially in the Senate. Foes of the measure spout clichés about the federal deficit. But Ellison retorts, that "deficit spending in a recession is wise economic policy" to get the economy moving until private sector spending and investment starts generating jobs and tax revenues.

Miller, chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, said local communities "are having to choose between raising taxes to sustain essential services or firing more workers. We should not ask students to forgo a year of education or tell families that their safety will be compromised because local governments have to lay off teachers and police officers. This bill will quickly create jobs that we can count and jobs we can count on."

Mayor Elizabeth Kautz of Burnsville, Minnesota, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors said, "Mayors are pleased to partner with Chairman Miller to push this important legislation. We deal face to face with unemployed citizens….all they want is good dependable jobs so they can support their families."

Unmoved by this humanitarian crisis, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla) once again blocked an extension of unemployment insurance, mimicking his Republican colleague Jim Bunning of Kentucky who blocked an extension of jobless benefits four weeks ago with the tacit backing of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill.

Just like the strangely similar sounding Soros-funded Healthcare For America NOW (HCAN), Jobs For America NOW (JFAN) is just another front for the usual suspects.

Indeed, according to their Whois listing, their website Jobs4AmericaNow.org is run by the Economic Policy Institute:

The Economic Policy Institute is yet another Soros funded 501c3 “charity.” And, as such, they are prohibited by their IRS status from lobbying Congress.

As we have often noted, the IRS guidelines read:

Lobbying Activity

In general, no organization may qualify for section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying)…

An organization will be regarded as attempting to influence legislation if it contacts, or urges the public to contact, members or employees of a legislative body for the purpose of proposing, supporting, or opposing legislation, or if the organization advocates the adoption or rejection of legislation

So, at the very least, the Economic Policy Institute should have their tax exemption withdrawn and they should be heavily fined.

But of course none of that will never happen.

Rules are only for Republicans and other enemies of The Revolution.

    I thought the way to create employment was to strangle federal spending so that the dollars they suck out of the economy are available to the private sector.

    (head slap)

  2. proreason says:

    Where does the $75 billion come from?

    Does the boy king snatch it out of thin air?

    Just a tad off point here.

    Looking at that photo above, I am struck at the difference in these “protesters” vs the Tea party “MOBS.”

    None of these characters appear terribly bright to me for some reason. In fact many look like thugs. The rest look like spoiled students don’t have a clue and who need a few extra bucks via the unions.

    At the very least the tea partiers who are ( “too”) well dressed (according to Ms Boxer) are a benefit to the community.

    I noticed the union made sign…Is it a stretch to believe these are paid demonstrators?
    Just asking.

    • canary says:

      I noticed AFL-CIO at the bottom of the sign. I imagine the unions, like the teachers union did, are violating all sorts of labor laws with dues.

    “She added that Jobs for America NOW, a coalition of 60 organizations ..”

    Yeah … righhhhhhhhht!

    60 branches of (shhhhhhhh) ACORN – New & Improved.

    “Miller’s bill that would prevent the layoff of tens of thousands of public employees by fiscally strapped state and local governments.”

    Yup! Save those public employees!

    “Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn) announced he is spearheading a nationwide effort during the recess to muster the 216 votes to push the Miller jobs bill through.”

    Hey, Ellison! This is a “Bill of Attainder” and thereby, unconstitutional!

    And Kautz, you dimwit …
    “Mayor Elizabeth Kautz of Burnsville, Minnesota, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors said, “Mayors are pleased to partner with Chairman Miller to push this important legislation. We deal face to face with unemployed citizens….all they want is good dependable jobs so they can support their families.”

    … this is a bill for PUBLIC EMPLOYEES so quit with the pandering. It has nothing to do with “unemployed citizens” and everything to do with taking care of your own.

    Yee gads, these people gotta go!!!

      “60 branches of (shhhhhhhh) ACORN – New & Improved”

      Yep we knew it was coming…at least those of us who pay attention.

      The ostriches will say…See no ACORN.

      Kind of reminds me of the kid’s video game where when you kill the enemy it breaks up into dozens of little versions of the big enemy. Same enemy…just more of them.

    I haven’t figured out why the Bloggers don’t go viral on George Soros he is destroying the US the same way he destroyed UK and France but he wants to destroy us more because we stopped the Nazis from doing what he is doing now .
    George Soros Owns the MSM and most of the papers but we the people can get the word out on him on the pc he needs to be shown for the monster he is and he has gotten most of the US money and is trying to get the rest and leave us a third world country

    George Soros has more power in the US than the citizens he owns Obama and the Dems .

    That is the reason we need to vet our politicans because they will be planted as Conservatives this time because they know that the Dems will be voted out so to get control they will have to plant the Rinos we must watch this process.

    But I don’t see us having elections because once people like this has power you usually have to fight to get it back that is the reason Obama wants a trumped up charge to call Marshall Law .
