Despite promising to fight for jobs, the Republicans did not even allow a vote on Obama’s jobs bill. Even more telling is their alternative “Jobs Through Growth Act” bill. It doesn’t contain a single item in Obama’s jobs bill (even though Republicans supported many of Obama’s proposals before Obama proposed them), but it does contain a repeal of health care reform, repeal of the recent financial overhaul measure, a disgusting provision that will allow multinational corporations to bring home $1.4 billion in profits without paying any tax on them, and a moratorium on any new regulations (including any on Wall Street). In other words, a total giveaway to banks, health insurance companies and other large corporations that doesn’t create any jobs at all. Haven’t we figured out yet that trickle down economics didn’t work?
