Republicans Focus on Jobs!

Republicans have finally kept their promise from the 2010 elections to focus on jobs. Yes, they got distracted by other pressing issues (like trying to outlaw abortion and repealing health care reform, not to mention destroying unions, Planned Parenthood, and NPR) but they finally released a draft budget proposal that does something about jobs, just like they promised.

Oh wait, they cut job training programs by 23%?

    All of the things that they propose to cut combined only constitute 3% of the total cost to government. More than a quarter goes to Social Security, another quarter to Defense, and a sizable chunk to health care services. Everything else is less than 5% of the total, with some programs coming to equal nearly 0% (which have also been targeted by the GOP in the past). The GOP claims they want to help jobs and they want to cut the budget. Why not focus on the areas where spending is highest instead of where it is lowest?

    When they start to practice what they preach, then maybe I’ll listen a little more.
