Relentless Focus on Creating Jobs

After the 2010 midterm elections, the Republicans declared that their top priority was creating jobs. Mike Stanfill started keeping a list of all Republican Congressional activity, to see if the Republicans were telling the truth. As Stanfill notes, the fact that his list “has reached its currently imposing length without one anecdotal citation of new employment is astonishing.”

So he gave the list its own website:

Stanfill’s conclusion is spot on:

Sorry. No job creation here. In fact, if you want to really understand what the Republican Party is trying to tell you simply insert the phrase “corporate profits” every time they say “jobs”.

I’ll keep adding to this list until the Republican House does something to create jobs but I unhappily predict this is gonna be one lonnnnng list. After all, you don’t get rid of a sitting president by helping the economy.
