The public sector job loses are the reason our unemployment is still over 8% yet the Republicans want smaller Government and blame President Obama for that very same smaller Government resulting in high unemployment.
John Boehner said that the 2012 session of Congress would be devoted to jobs, jobs, jobs. Most people assumed that he was referring to jobs for the jobless. Actually he was referring to keeping his job and those of GOP members of Congress. One year ago this month, President Obama submitted a bill to create 1,000,000 new jobs and it would have been fully funded. Congress, under Boehner’s leadership, refused to enact it into law. If they had, the unemployment rate would now be below 8.0% and the GOP and Mitt Romney would have lost a talking pont against President Obama. One million or more Americans and their dependents continue to suffer the effects of unemployment so that a few Republicans can keep their jobs and fat perks. It is time for a change.
