Hire a Vet to Honor Veterans Day, Officials Say

 

By Donna Miles, American Forces Press Service

Washington, DC – One of the best ways Americans can honor the nation’s veterans this Veterans Day is by giving them a job, three senior government officials told reporters today.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki, Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis and U.S. Small Business Administrator Karen G. Mills praised initiatives under way to support returning combat veterans, including those President Barack Obama announced yesterday.

They echoed the president’s comments yesterday, as well as those of Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta as he met yesterday with chief executive officers at an event hosted by the Goldman Sachs Foundation in New York.

“The men and women of the 9/11 generation have risked their lives fighting overseas defending our freedoms, and they have been a formidable force for good,” said Shinseki during the joint conference call today. “They are remarkable men and women and shouldn’t have to fight for a job when they come home.” «Read the rest of this article»

Tanner helps lead Bill to boost U.S. Manufacturing Jobs

 

Washington, DC. – U.S. Rep. John Tanner helped the House of Representatives overcome a partisan block to pass legislation boosting U.S. manufacturing jobs.

The “U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act of 2010” (HR 4380) contains hundreds of tariff suspensions and reductions to help American companies grow, stay competitive and support further job creation. The bill was initially opposed by House Republican leaders but eventually passed the House overwhelmingly by a vote of 378-43.

“Passage of this bill is one more step toward economic recovery and private-sector job growth in America,” Tanner said. “Working families in America will be grateful that a substantial majority of Members of this House rose above political rhetoric to do the right thing to save and create jobs in Tennessee and across our country.” «Read the rest of this article»

The Final Presidential Debate: The thumpin’ that wasn’t

 

Approximately 100 people stand in line waiting to vote.

As early voting opened in Tennessee to heavy turnouts, Senator McCain’s promised thumping of Senator Obama didn’t materialize. Groups gathered at both local Republican and Democratic party headquarters to watch the debate, discuss their preferences and hear the candidates present their proposals.

Republican HeadquartersThe final candidates debate of the 2008 presidential election season was a much anticipated showcase of America’s choices for leadership for the next four years. The debate’s focus was to be on domestic policy, with the recent upheaval in the financial markets to be a focal point. The level of negative ads has increased to  near crescendo as McCain’s campaign unleashed new charges and the Obama campaign refuted falsehoods and returned the fire to McCain. The debate was supposed to offer a clear demonstration of McCain’s superiority to Obama. Sadly, for McCain, the smear adhesive didn’t stick.

Members await the debate at Republican Party Hqtrs Viewers were treated to a consistent presentation of proposals and ideas from Obama as he responded to  McCain’s attempts to hang negatives.

Obama noted that McCain’s own campaign said publicly last week that, “if we keep on talking about the economic crisis, we lose, so we need to change the subject.” Such was the tone for the course of the evening. «Read the rest of this article»
