GOP: Lies and Failures When It Comes to Jobs and Other Economic Policy

Posted on the 18 August 2015 by Doggone
GOP: Lies and Failures when it comes to Jobs and other Economic PolicyThis has been a promise made not only by Boehner and McConnell, and the right wing members of Congress.
It is a promise made as well by the various governors and members of state legislatures on the right.
NONE of them have delivered.
States like Kansas, Wisconsin and Louisiana, with right wing supermajorities and control of the governor's chairs, are all at the bottom of the lists for job creators, at the top of lists of sweetheart deals and give-aways to big business and to the wealthy 1%. These states are all in poor health by most metrics, including schools, infrastructure such as bridges and roads, lowered credit ratings for the state, and worst in budget deficits to pay for necessary services.
This is what the face of failure looks like. This is the face of failure of economic policy and right wing ideology. This is the face of failed values expressed in government action and inaction.
This is EPIC failure of the most endemic, systemic and pernicious kind. It is an indictment of right wing governance and belief. It is a failure to live up to promises. Only those who seek to vote against their own interests and the interests of the nation would continue to vote for these people and policies.
It is time to hold not only the politicians and policy-makers accountable, it is time to hold those who vote for them accountable as well. This means underlining these failures to conservative family and friends, and pointing the stinky blame finger at them for voting for these people and for supporting these failed policies and legislative failures. Those voters enable the actions of the failures of and in government.
