On Jobs

Manufacturing competitiveness:

Kerry talks about ways to be competitive, cites examples of administration failure … incentives to move offshore. Tax benefits for companies that stay. Manufacturing and new jobs credit. Cost of healthcare is hurting business more than anything. Boo-YEAH! Education is important … especially science and technology … energy independence … great entrepreneurial spirit to free ourselves from mideast energy dependence.

Bush keeps going back to tort reform … insurance pooling … health savings accounts … claims Robert Rubin says Kerry’s plan won’t work … claims energy plan is stuck in Senate … Kerry misses votes … keep taxes low.

Gibson horns in again.

Kerry says you can’t stop all outsourcing but you can create a level playing field. Bush just lied. 96% of small businesses won’t be affected.

Bush is confused. Whut? Invokes some yokel in Ohio.
