    John Boehner, with a 50/50 chance of becoming the next majority leader has laid out his "THREE POINT" GOP plan to fix the American Economy.

    1. Obama should fire all his advisers.

    2. Give more tax breaks to everyone making over $250k a year because that would help 3% of small business and tax cuts don't affect the deficit.

    3. And finally...............

    -------------------------------

    Boehner said President Obama's team lacks "real-world, hands-on experience" in creating jobs that are needed for a full economic recovery.

    Vice President Biden lashed back at Boehner, called his "so-called" economic plan nothing but a list of what Republicans are against and devoid of innovative new ideas that can help move the country forward.

    Bill Burton, the White House deputy press secretary, said he had reviewed Boehner's speech and found "what was most surprising was his full-throated defense of the indefensible," a reference to the congressman's proposal to give tax breaks to companies that Burton said "ship jobs overseas."

    Republicans understand that cutting off unemployment benefits would force people to sober up and go out and get a job. Any job. Just before calling for a two month, fully paid vacation at tax payers expense, the Republican leadership explained how working at McDonald's and living in a car is preferable to not having a job.

    Listening to John Boehner is like Farmer Brown listening to the fox on how to guard chickens. The GOP is in some serious need of new leadership not that the Democratic leadership is any better but at least they are honest about wanting to spend money and grow government.

    John's current and new strategy is to say he is NOT like other Republicans and won't follow the failed policies of both Republicans and Democrats.

    He is actually running on a platform of "Republicans have failed, but we know what we did wrong". Only they are telling us.

    After spending over 1 TRILLION borrowed dollars in the so-called economic stimulus bill with nothing to show for it--but a soaring deficit--Boehner is 100% correct.

    Get rid of these incompetent economic MORONS.

    This is just PROOF that massive GOVERNMENT spending does NOT create long term private sector job growth.

    You voted for it, you got it, and now you OWN it.
