Eric Cantor, aka Harry Ellis, is on my tv touting the Republican stimulus plan, which for the life of me I can not find online. I have searched Boehner’s site, I have looked in the House Republican Study group, and I can’t find anything. Considering the Republican plan when the economy was good and the coffers were full was tax cuts, and the Republican plan when the economy was lagging was tax cuts, and the Republican plan while we were fighting two wars and the deficit was rising was more tax cuts, and the Republican plan for, well, everything is tax cuts, I am going to go out on a limb and guess that the Republican plan for economic stimulus is going to be… tax cuts.
Assuming they even have a plan.
Regardless, Cantor is claiming it will create twice the jobs as the Democratic plan, which seems to me to be taking the art of bullshit to the level of the sublime. No one really knows how many jobs the Democratic plan will create, if any (and I have my doubts that it will do anything but add more debt), but Cantor assures us the Republican plan, which I can not find, will create double the jobs of the Democratic plan. My own secret plan is even better- it will create TRIPLE the jobs of the Republican plan. I just am not ready to release my plan yet.
At any rate, as I sit here and listen to this moron, I keep hearing him say that the Republicans are dedicated to preserving jobs. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t Cantor and the GOP spend the last few months openly rooting for the failure of the auto industry in the hopes that several million union jobs would go up in smoke? But now they are all about job preservation?
How any of these guys got elected again in 2008 is beyond me.
