Where are the Republican jobs?
Republicans claim they won the last election because the public wants a strong economy. Six months after they took over the House, where are the jobs? Instead of jobs, Republicans claim their number one priority is getting rid of Obama. In the House they have passed legislation on anti-abortion, anti-same sex marriage, anti-drug safety regulations, and voted no on any new job programs proposed by Obama or the Democrats. Republicans say if we cut taxes the jobs will come. Bush II cut taxes; where are the jobs? Obama continued the Bush II corporate tax cuts; where are the jobs? Like children Republicans continue to insist that we cut more taxes, but fall short delivering on new jobs. Instead of new jobs, the Republicans now say we must cut government spending. Of course, they don’t mean we should stop government spending by ending corporate tax loopholes and doing away with corporate subsidies or corporate funding. No! Only cut spending for the poor, the sick, the elderly, the youth, the police, the firemen, the teachers, and the insane. The only viable question is where are the Republican jobs? And I will tell you the answer. The Republicans don’t want new jobs. They want the government to fail. The number one Republican priority is to get Obama out of office. In a bad economy, voters tend to elect the out-of-office candidate. To get elected, Republicans are working hard to make the economy fail. After flushing itself down the tube with Bush II and the Great Recession, Republicans want back in power and they are willing to keep the economy failing in order to do it.
