Democrats Getting Frustated with Barack Obama … Focus on JOBS by Taxing the People … What about those Budget Deficits?
Democrats are beginning to see the handwriting on the wall for the 2012 elections … it’s about JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.
Those in Obama’s own party are becoming frustrated with the continual poor jobs creation and the lack luster growth in the economy. Democrats realize that their fate is directly tied to the economy, unemployment and jobs, all of which are presently terrible at best. However, the Democrats plan to create jobs is just more tax and spend liberal nonsense. Democrats know they are going to to shellacked in 2012 and lose the Senate and Presidency, so it would appear they want to pass as much of their liberal agenda as they can before the lose all power.
Senior Senate Democrats are growing frustrated by what they see as President Obama’s passivity on the economy, and are beginning to discuss a large infrastructure package funded by tax increases.
Some Democrats, such as Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, who serves as chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, think such a package could lower the unemployment rate by as much as two percentage points.
But the plan is not without political risk — Republicans would be quick to slap Democrats with the old “tax-and-spend liberals” label. And the prospect of passing such a plan through the GOP-led House of Representatives — where conservative freshmen hold significant clout — is slim.
More at the RAW STORY. They seem to think that Democrats have been snookered. Hardly, deficits and jobs go hand in hand. Let’s face it, Democrats do not have a plan to deal with either … they could use all the snookering they can get.
