No jobs in the GOP jobs plan

Well here's a shocker. An independent analysis finds no jobs in the GOP "jobs" plan.
House Republicans’ proposed jobs package would not reduce unemployment or spur the economy’s growth in the next year or two, according to a leading economic forecasting firm that has predicted that President Obama’s plan would achieve both goals.

And a central piece of the Republicans’ plan — a balanced-budget amendment to the constitution — “would quickly destroy millions of jobs while creating enormous economic and social upheaval” if implemented soon, said Macroeconomic Advisers, a St. Louis-based firm that has done work for the Federal Reserve. ...
As the kids say, this a feature -- not a bug. If they actually did something to create jobs, the economy would get better. Can't have that. It would ruin their campaign strategy.

It's long been clear Republicans don't want to actually create any jobs. They just want to create a catchy slogan about jobs their ovine base can put on a bumper sticker and use to maintain working levels of willful ignorance.

Libby, may I suggest that the description for the GOP friends is not so much bovine as porcine... and their continued success is due to their ovine followers.
