What’s the difference between the jobs plan announced by Mitt Romney and the plans for creating lots of new jobs that were part of the campaigns of previous Republican presidential candidates?
Mike Konczal does a good job comparing the main points of the Republican jobs plans from 2012 (Romney), 2008 (McCain), 2006 (Bush, State of the Union), and 2004 (campaign). And they’re basically all the same:
Domestic oil production, school choice, trade agreements, cut spending and reduce taxes and regulations – it’s been the conservative answer to times of deep economic stress, times of economic recovery, times of economic worries and times of economic panic. Which is another way of saying that the Republicans have no plan for how to actually deal with this specific crisis we face.
