Leading candidate Carter challenges Congressman Johnson on spending borrowed money to create temporary jobs, undermining real growth
(ATLANTA)— Today leading Republican Congressional candidate Liz Carter challenged U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson on his call to spend TARP funds to “create jobs”.
Carter said Johnson helped create our financial crisis by opposing reforms to home lending. He then opposed steps to shore up the housing market while proposing to use ‘unspent’ TARP money to create short-term jobs.
“He has created a recipe for long-term disaster,” Carter said. “Even with the massive stimulus bill, Georgia saw 100,000 first-time applicants for unemployment in December.
“The $139 billion of remaining TARP funds would have little to no effect on the long-term health of the job market,” Carter continued. “Congressman Johnson is creating an even larger deficit and debt burden that will be a drag on private-sector job growth for years to come. It is like giving a candy bar to a tired runner – they will feel great for 5 minutes, but then they crash and burn, being worse than they were before.
Carter said she is eager to apply her business acumen gained from 18 years of business management and owning her own consulting firm to create sustainable job growth for the American people.
“We need to stop all of these efforts to spend and regulate our way out of this recession,” Carter said. “Small business owners will not add employees while Washington is creating legislation that will raise taxes and that creates more uncertainty. Business owners understand these spending schemes – eventually you run out of other people’s money.
“The Fourth District needs a Representative that understands the real world and how to manage and grow, sustainable businesses – in the private sector,” she added.
We must stay focused and continue to let the voice of the people be heard.
Over the past months we have seen bribery at an all time high in the “health control” bill negotiations – Unions, the State of Nebraska, the State of Louisiana, the State of Montana, and more.
Don’t think bribery will end with the “health control” bill, that we have stalled by electing Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts – Thank you again to all those in MA.
Congress is still moving forward with immigration reform that will create “amnesty” for illegal aliens and which will create over 30 million “process and fee waived” votes.
President Obama will talk about creating a “new foundation” for our great nation, stay tuned for words like “rescue, restore and rebuild.”
The people have been clear – no more rescuing big business, acknowledge and ease taxes on small business – the backbone of this great nation, invite others to the negotiation table and open the door.
With new political advisors, yes David Plouffe is back; new marketing communication strategies will focus on “benefits” and move attention away from the process, the bribery and hidden agendas. The speck of transparency we have seen will cease to exist. The liberal agenda of BIG Government and OVER Regulation will be sugar coated and fed to the media.
Government does not create sustainable jobs; don’t be fooled by the calls of “job creation”.
Our nation and values are still under attack by extremists, we must remain vigilant on destroying terrorists – not protecting rights they are not entitled to.
Stay vigilant and remember – Every seat is important in 2010. One seat makes a difference. One vote makes a difference.
This is Why Doors are Closed!
On January 11, 2010 Union AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka calls the Senate tax an assault on middle-class families and a sop to American “elites.” Union leaders proclaim they WILL NOT support the passage of the “healthcare” bill and that repercussions will come if the bill is passed.
Union leaders are outraged at the “excise tax” that refers to the Senates attempt and the Obama Administrations preference to slap a 40 percent levy on “Cadillac” health insurance benefit plans. Union leaders say the better moniker is “Chevy” because, they say, the tax would also hit union and non-union families. The tax applies to the accumulated value of standard health insurance; secondary plans that cover dental and vision expenses and flexible spending accounts.
The labor leaders prefer the House-passed 5.4 percent surtax on individuals making more than $500,000 and couples who earn more than $1 million.
Union chiefs have been huddling for days with White House officials in an effort to find a compromise over the excise tax, which President Obama has insisted remain in the bill. Behind Closed Doors.
January 15, 2010 Union AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is pleased with the negotiations that took place between Democrats, the White House Administration and Union Leaders. Unions are now proud to support the “healthcare” bill with no repercussions as a special exception was agreed upon. Now all union workers will be exempt from any tax until 2018. The deal will also allow union workers to be eligible for new government insurance exchanges.
Now Congress will have to find a way to restore the “exception” money through another tax. Democrats are now considering raising the Medicare payroll tax.
So, my hat goes off to those who created such a “sweet” deal for Union members, I just wish the average American Citizen had such great representation. Now the average non-union American Citizen will pay more taxes, small businesses will be forced to let people go to fall under the “penalty tax” limit, and those who can’t afford insurance today will realize that a tax credit isn’t going to pay the insurance premium now mandated upon them and will realize they will be paying a fine or possible jail time.
Higher taxes, Higher Unemployment … this is what this healthcare bill represents.
We the People, the American Citizens, Deserve More and Deserve Representation!

Carter: Hank Johnson Hiding Healthcare Truth From America
Leading Congressional candidate Carter challenges Johnson to open legislative process on ‘healthcare reform’
(ATLANTA)—Leading Republican Congressional candidate Liz Carter today called into question Representative Hank Johnson’s handling of the ongoing, closed-door discussions of U.S. healthcare reform.
Johnson is taking a hidden, back-room approach as he joins fellow Democrats in “reforming” the world’s highest standard for healthcare, according to Carter.
“There is no excuse for keeping Americans out of the room as our so-called Congressional leaders destroy our healthcare rights,” Carter said. “The House and Senate are virtually in secret collusion to ram through changes that get to the heart of personal liberties – our rights to protect and promote the health of ourselves and our families.”
“I would challenge Hank Johnson to do the right thing and refuse to support any legislation that was better kept from the eyes of those he claims to represent,” Carter added. “If these reforms are so needed and so beneficial to all, what could Hank Johnson possibly have to hide?”
Carter contends there is a much more simple and effective means of addressing U.S. healthcare, which Johnson is opting to ignore.
“Our best option is to simply fight the over-regulation of healthcare – a move that would help lower costs and prevent patients’ losses,” Carter said. “We need to get bureaucrats out of the business of deciding our care alternatives.”
“The truth is, this ‘reform’ will cost lives and destroy even more jobs,” Carter said. “Johnson’s support of this legislation is furthering this recession and bringing more pain to families here in the Fourth District.”
