The Jobs Mandate
published 11/18/12
We the people want jobs.

All it takes for us to have them is for you, our elected leaders,
is to do what's in your own best interests

Mr. President, The only question you need to ask all these "CEOs" is,
Can you create a million jobs starting today?
Then please read the following.

I am placing a $10,000.00 Dollar bet against the top 1,000 political and economic elites in
this country that I have a better plan to fix the economy and create millions of jobs and do it
revenue neutral than you do and end the silly conjectures and negotiations between the
CEOs   the "economists"  the Congress and The White House.

Give me three things we currently throw away and I'll fix the economy. Starting now, today.

Three things that I want put on the public table are,

a.   People, the unemployed. Give me a list of people in each State on public assistance and
I'll offer them these jobs. If they say, no thanks, they lose all their public assistance that  day

b.   The houses we demolish every year. Each jurisdiction sends to this website some
pictures and locations of all houses they want gone and we'll come get them.

c.   The money we throw away every year.

Consider the unemployed. They are now getting tax money for unemployment, food stamps,
heating assistance and who knows what else. It's said by some that after a while they can't
be re-employed because they have been out of work for too long. I'll hire them. Get them off
public assistance and give each homeless family a salary, training and a house.

You Republicans can't argue against that, can you? With this on the table you would actually
have to come out and say you don't want your constituents to have jobs. Would Republicans
come right out and say we want people on the public dole? If they won't agree with this that's
just what they are doing.

This is just what The President asked for and if you are to be believed all you Democrat
Senators and Congress people, Right?

Right away the debt starts slowing down and taxes start coming in. I'll hire people at $12.00
and hour, teach them the residential construction trades and give most of them a mortgage
free house. So for each $25,000.00 I can talk you guys out of wasting by this government I'll
pay a persons salary for 1 year.

We demolish over 300,000 houses a year, I want all of them.
Mr. President please write an Executive Order telling jurisdictions to stop issuing demolition
permits and instead send the info about the houses to this website.

If an average house is worth $200,000.00 and you multiply that times the 300,000 houses
then we add $60,000,000,000 (Billion) to the GDP and house 300,000 homeless families.

An average house demolition costs about  $7,500.00 and if we multiply that by the 300,000
houses we demolish that adds up to $2,250,000,000.00. Yes, that's 2 and 1/4 Billion dollars
of tax money we use to throw away houses in a country where we have hundreds of
thousands of homeless families. Doesn't make sense to me. Put that 2 1/4 Billion on the
table and I'll employ 100,000 people for a year.

Bonus for the President; I'll put solar panels on every one of those houses and encourage a
hybrid or an electric car in each driveway.

First, Let all Bush era tax cuts expire. Use that money to create jobs. Anyone have any
complaints about paying 2% more as long as it employs people and it's tax deductible?  I
think just giving that money back to Congress is a terrible idea.

I hear Warren Buffett and the patriotic millionaires want to pay more taxes, instead, may I
suggest they send that money here and take a right off while creating jobs for others.

I hear there is a waste book now out of Congress. Use that money to create more jobs.

I hear we still subsidize oil and coal companies. Take that money and use it to create these

If Congress can't compromise and do what we are paying them to do take their salaries and
benefits and the money they made from insider trading and create jobs with it. Don't want to
create jobs for your constituents? I'll let them know.

I hear we are heading for a fiscal CLIFF.
Why not turn that into a fiscal LIFT.

We Americans are clever bastards so why not help us work our way out of this mess?

All financial transactions will be posted in public on this website, including wages.

The $10,000.00 bet is real.

I'll put up my $10,000.00 against one thousand of our top media, economic and political
people who in turn puts up their own $10,000.00 and if you lose I'll create 400  jobs for a year
with that $10 Million. If  I lose I'll donate the money to someone in the Sandy path.

Bet Conditions;
Jobs have to start immediately, be environmentally helpful, be revenue neutral, reduces the
national debt, gets people off public assistance, houses the homeless, and non

To help please tweet The President at #barackobama and ask him to read this site.
You'll be helping him (and us) do what he wants to do.

Want to talk? Take me up on the bet? Call or email me.
