GOP fixation on tax cuts deflects the fact they don't know how to grow the economy Clearly, the reason the GOP is fixated on tax cuts is because they have no clue how to grow the economy. They don't know how to create jobs. They don't know how to create an environment conducive to creating jobs. Even while business is saying they aren't hiring because of lack of demand, Republicans are saying it's because of "uncertainty". What does that even mean? "Demand" is a real thing. Something every businessman and economist understands, but "uncertainty"? It's laughable. During the last election, they ran with "Jobs Jobs Jobs", but now we know that can't possibly work again. Tax cuts aren't enough. We've traveled down that road with the Bush Tax cuts and the all the tax cuts included in the Stimulus Package. The only part of the the package that created jobs was "investment". Even the more than a hundred Republican congressmen and senators who voted against the stimulus, then took stimulus moneay and then took credit for all the jobs it created in their districts know the stimulus worked and would have worked better without all the tax cuts. Republicans don't have any ideas on how to grow the economy or they would tell them to the American people, right?
