GOP Promotes Job Losses Exceeding 700,000

From First Read
And there you have it, the real GOPTP agenda. Eliminate 700,000 jobs by 2012--win the White House. Senator McCain cannot declare his own economic adviser as illegitimate and have any credibility; the words he spoke smack of hypocrisy. Plus, stop with the "failed stimulus" garbage because that is exactly what it is garbage. Remember the photo ops of republican state governors handing out stimulus checks and their accompanying remarks noting how many jobs would be saved and created. For once, it would be refreshing if the GOP could actually speak the truth about the stimulus and state what anyone with one economics class knows is the truth: spending cuts equals lost jobs equals lost federal and state revenues equals more lost jobs.

I am really having a hard time with people who will vote for/support a party that is willing to destroy 700,000 lives - and livelyhoods - as a means to get power.

Has anyone asked those 700,000 people who will lose their jobs how THEY felt about it?

Jody - to paraphrase a line from "A Few Good Men" - The republicants can't handle the truth" they have to make up lies to keep in power. Their goal for the US is to have the "Yes Massa" and the rest of us.

We now see the republicants job creation strategy - less is more.
