    The Repubs promised to create jobs, but their budget proposal would actually kill 975,000 jobs.

    The "Job-Killing" Republican party is trying to trigger another Republican recession in the hopes that they can pin it on President Obama.

    Whatever happened to "Country First"?

    Putting people to work was never their objective. They just took advantage of the unemployment rate. So far it's clear their only initiative is to push socially conservative legislation. Now they're giving Democrats twice the work to clean up when they regain control.

    Especially the Independent voters have to be shocked at what they've seen from the Teabagger Republicans in just the past few months. You can expect them to jump back to the Democratic side, in droves.

    Isn't this the same explanation that has been given for the democrats losing the last election so badly? Basically, the line of reasoning was that Obama won his election mostly due to a very bad economy, people cared about jobs, but then things like the health care bill and liberal legislation took center stage in Congress, and the voters punished the democrats for it. I think the republicans could suffer the same fate if they aren't careful with their agenda. Is the underlying assumption then also that the voters know what's best for the country? I sometimes wonder if that's even true.
