Video: House GOP women: America needs jobs!

posted at 9:55 pm on July 19, 2011 by Tina Korbe

While Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) urges women to “get off the sidelines” and into public service, the GOP women of the House remind the nation, “America needs jobs!” The truth is, women might be “on the sidelines” in politics, at least in terms of sheer numbers, but they are already in the game when it comes to small business ownership. A party that understands and implements the conditions requisite for job creation should be a natural fit for those women.

“My agenda and the Republican agenda is indeed pro-woman,” says Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) in the video. “It is pro-woman because it is pro-small business, pro-job creator, pro-family and pro-economy.”

Some 400 businesses are started by women every day, according to the video — and women-owned businesses represent the fastest-growing segment in the U.S. economy.

“It’s the mom who knows how much money it takes to put gas in the tank, how much it costs for healthcare, for the education bills, who’s worried about her older parents and making sure that they have access to healthcare — those are the women we’re standing up for,” Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.) says.

Or as Senator Rubio said the other day; “We don’t need more taxes, we need more taxpayers.”
The plain fact is that there is very little correlation between higher marginal tax rates and increased government revenue. In fact, the more steeply progressive marginal rates become, the less revenue they raise and the more unstable the revenue stream that government depends upon becomes. It’s just plain dumb!
The primary driver of government revenue is economic growth. Why is that so hard to get???

Do these Republican Woman care about the unemployed men and the men who start small businesses? How about jobs for men? Are they women first or Senators representing all their constituents first. Sounded more than a little sexist to me. Men have indeed taken a back seat to women in this society.

Tommy_G on July 19, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Good video. Hopefully women have had enough of Obumblers hopey, changey horsecrap.

ted c on July 19, 2011 at 10:06 PM

That’s pretty lame when you have to say your party is “pro-woman”. The GOP needs to speak only in terms of Americans, not in terms of race or gender. Race and gender politics is what the democrats do. Anyone who thinks the GOP is some misogynist party ain’t going to be swayed by a commercial denying it. This is as stupid as the GOP putting out a commercial saying they are not racist. That just plays right into the left’s narrative. This is 2011, not 1965.

Women owned businesses get tax benefits as well as bonus points when bidding on government projects.

I think this is relevant, encouraging, and sorely needed to be said. If I’m not mistaken, are not these women are all Tea Party Fresh-women? If so, Bravo!

Yep, the 91% of non WBE contractors who receive gov’t contracts better look out for that remaining 9%. Wooo, scary!

Now, if the GOP can convince the black how they were the ones that fought for our freedom as well as our civil rights then they’d be unstoppable.

Identity politics. Can’t we all just be “Americans” and leave it at that?

This ideological war is based on how to get where we want to be, not who we are on the way there. Leave it to the left to focus on the collectivist mindset and let the right focus on the individual.

rbendana on July 19, 2011 at 10:24 PM

alwaysfiredup on July 19, 2011 at 10:15 PM

Then give us the unemployment breakdown of men vs. women. Tommy_G is right. Another thing, since women demanded to be in the workplace, men’s wages have gone down forcing a lot of women to work outside the home whether they want to or not.

lowandslow on July 19, 2011 at 10:27 PM

O/T If your in the mood to read shear stupidity read this story by Deepak Chopra at the San Fran Cronicle http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2011/07/18/president_obama_critical.DTL, but if you want to laugh your azz off skip straight to the comments,looks like some people are forgetting to drink thier Kool-Aid.

Why don’t you want to learn the truth for yourself? Or would that shatter your feminist utopian fantasy? There are literally thousands of studies with irrefutable data but you can start here, the not so conservative Brooking Institute.

Here’s another link to a traditional female that you may want to read that sheds a lot of light on woman and work, The Thinking Housewife.

Excerpted from Brookings: Have Earnings Actually Declined? “It has been widely observed that over the last several decades wage earnings for the median full-time American male worker have stagnated. For example, in 2009 the median full-time male worker aged 25-64 brought home $48,000—roughly the same as in 1969 after adjusting for inflation….At the same time, there has been a sharp decline in employment rates for men,…”

Tommy_G on July 19, 2011 at 10:48 PM

lowandslow on July 19, 2011 at 10:48 PM

From your link:
“This erosion in wages likely reflects both reduced job market opportunities as well as an increased desire for leisure by men—although the evidence suggests the former plays a larger role.”

That doesn’t indicate women are taking men’s jobs. At all.

alwaysfiredup on July 19, 2011 at 10:50 PM

Tommy_G on July 19, 2011 at 10:48 PM

Again: you are scapegoating women for the declines in lower-skilled male wages. The reason women weren’t losing their jobs in the recession is because they were lower-wage and lower-skill. They are now losing their jobs, because layoffs have now hit teachers and gov’t clerical workers. These workers have always been predominantly female. Women are not the reason men have problems. Look elsewhere.

alwaysfiredup on July 19, 2011 at 10:53 PM

*that first should be “lower-class male wages”, not lower skill

And yet the percentage of men unemployed is still 3% higher then women. Those 700,000 jobs in the larger scheme don’t mean much do they?

lowandslow on July 19, 2011 at 11:00 PM

The essence of conservatism is individual responsibility. It is left to each person to avail themselves of the opportunities offered.

Now on average, women are more likely to occupy the kind of occupations that are more stable but offer less profit opportunity. Men are the reverse. That’s just fact. In recessions men will both lose their jobs more quickly and find new ones more quickly. This has been borne out by facts of the current recession. Meanwhile, women will generally take more of the teacher and nurse jobs, just as they always have, and these jobs are damn near impossible to lose.

If you want a less risky and remunerative job, you as an individual are welcome to take it. Stop blaming women.

If it is the man with the problem, logically the problem is his. We all are completely responsible for our own problems. When you blame others you can not solve your own problems. Admitting you have a problem is the first step. Good Wishes :)

Does that hold true say, for Christ when he was arrested and brought before Pontius Pilate and Crucified?

I thought not. Perhaps a lest general statement would work with your thought. Like, “most people”…

And for those of you who get confused by mentions of “women” and “Kirsten Gillibrand” in the same sentence, let me bring to back to the halcyon days of November, 2010, when we first learned that Kristi Noem is pretty danged Hot.
