House Republicans Pitch Jobs Plan as Obama Prepares to Roll Out New Agenda

Details of the president's plan are sparse, but the president offered broad strokes during an announcement naming Alan Krueger as his nominee to lead the Council of Economic Advisers. Obama said the plan would "immediately" help middle-class families, make it easier for small businesses to hire and put construction crews to work.
isn't that how he described the Crapuls package last time???


House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, in a memo to fellow Republicans Monday, narrowed the GOP focus on job growth to two prime areas -- regulation and tax treatment of businesses.

"What we're looking to do as we return to Washington next week is to focus on how to stop the federal government from making it so difficult for small business people to create jobs,"

Cantor also proffered two tax-relief proposals aimed at businesses. One would repeal a yet-to-be-implemented requirement on governments at all levels to withhold 3 percent of payments over $100 million to contractors similar to income withholding for individuals. The other would allow small businesses to claim a deduction worth 20 percent of their income.


The administration, like Republicans, is also talking about tax relief as a way to spur growth.
Those heathens! Agreeing with the GOP! The lefties will shit a brick on this!


Obama for weeks has urged Congress to act on proposals ranging from patent reform to trade deals to a public-private "infrastructure bank."

Cantor welcomed the first two, saying in his memo Monday he would "not hesitate" to set votes on the trade bills when the president sends them over.
But... but... I thought the GOP was the obstructionist party? The party of no! The 'anything Obama sends. we'll block' party!??????

Both parties have it wrong.

If you give the middle class more tax cuts they won't spend it. They will pay off their debt.

That is not a recipe for job growth.

Odds are Republicans have a new "Tax Holiday" in the mix for off shore profit repatriation.

Like that worked so well last time.

:lol:

Where does 'regulation and tax treatment of businesses' equal taxes cuts for the middle class? Obama's plan is the one that they claimed it would "immediately" help middle-class families, not the GOP proposal discussed in the linked piece.

Ok.

If you give a business more tax cuts they won't spend it. They will sit on the cash.

That is not a recipe for job growth.

Happy now?
