    I've heard that repeated.

    Republicans ran on Jobs Jobs Jobs. They have no jobs bill. They say that government can't do anything to create jobs.

    They say only cutting taxes will create jobs. There were the Bush tax cuts. Then Obama extended the Bush tax cuts (otherwise millions of Americans would have lost their unemployment, he was right to take that Republican threat seriously), nearly half the stimulus package was tax cuts, the 12 largest companies don't pay anything in taxes and were even given billions. Oil companies are subsidized. Companies are sitting on trillions.

    Have Republicans simply "given up" on any job creation? Is that why they are slashing education and going after teachers? Because they don't feel it's necessary since there won't be any jobs?

    I'm just trying to figure out what their "plans" are for this country.

    Considering all their bills are about "abortion" and "gay rights" and "immigration", I'm pretty sure they are trying to place the country on "lockdown". Is that it? That's the goal?

    If it isn't, someone please explain what the goal is.

    They only feel that way about the poor and the middle class. The top 2% they truly love.

    Create 50 independent countries, it would seem.

    I know many want to throw out 74 years of Constitutional case law.

    They are in essence reactionaries – they harbor this pathetic fantasy of returning the country to ca 1800.

    It’s really quite sad.
