    4 Biggest GOP Lies About Jobs
    (And Why Obama Must Repudiate Them)
    Republicans figure if their big lies are repeated often enough, people will start to believe them.

    “Cuts in wages and benefits create jobs.” Congressional Republicans and their state counterparts repeat this lie incessantly. It also lies behind corporate America’s incessant demand for wage and benefit concessions – and corporate and state battles against unions. But it’s dead wrong. Meager wages and benefits are reducing the spending power of tens of millions of American workers, which is prolonging the jobs recession.

    President Obama and Democratic leaders should be standing up for the wages and benefits of ordinary Americans, standing up for unions, and decrying the lie that wage and benefit concessions are necessary to create jobs. The President should be traveling to the Midwest – taking aim at Republican governors in the heartland who are hell bent on destroying the purchasing power of American workers. But he’s doing nothing of the sort.

    "Prosperity Through Lower Wages!"

    That could be their campaign slogan.

    You have your concepts mixed up LOL. The GOP never said wages and benefits cause unemployment. That's a democrat party issue. Lavish benefits and wages to government workers paid for by taxpayers is a burdon on the economy. Didn't you notice the smirk on Obama's face when he made a joke that "the shovel ready jobs weren't shovel ready"? Government created jobs are a smoke and mirrors ploy. It's a temporary shifting of taxpayer money from one segment of the population to another. Government doesn't earn a dime. It confiscates money from the private sector.

    What a joke. Lavish wages and benefits.

    How the fuck does anyone even come closing to posting bullshit like this after TARP.

    Government GIVES money to the private sector. Our money.

    Those missiles are not built by government workers..they are built by Raytheon.

    Those military vehicles are not built by government workers..they are built by General Dynamics and GM.

    And the fat cats with millions they are just sitting on..eat your lunch..and drink your milkshake.

    And all you seem to do is encourage them to get more.

    Agreed.

    Although I'd add that Keynesian economics take themselves down regardless.

    Oh really?

    Fucking billions of tax payer dollars went to cover the bets of the rich boys..and it has nothing to do with anything.
