Still more evidence that GOP is sabotaging U.S. economy
Yesterday, I gave you THIS.
Today, I give you THIS:
Let’s be blunt. Leaders of the Republican Party- including their Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney – have moved from “rooting against” our economy to actively attempting to sabotage the economy of the United States.
They believe that their chances of defeating President Obama, taking control of the Senate, and maintaining control of the House of Representatives materially improve if the economic recovery stalls. And they aren’t just standing around hoping that a European financial collapse or higher oil prices will send the economy into a second recession – they are actively trying to make it happen.
It is astonishing, but today the surest way to make certain that a piece of legislation is deep-sixed by the Republicans in Congress is to demonstrate that it will help create jobs in the American economy.
The first concrete example involves actual concrete — the reauthorization of the Transportation Bill that provides funding for roads, bridges and mass transit projects across the country.
