What Passes for a GOP Jobs Agenda
washingtonmonthly.com — Way back in late May, House Republicans unveiled a plan to create jobs. Of course, "plan" was a strong word. It could charitably be described as a bad joke, and not even the most public-relations-savvy GOP leaders made an effort to talk about the agenda. It was unveiled, ignored, and forgotten, pretty much within the span of an afternoon. The most glaring problem with the GOP jobs agenda is that it won't work, but nearly as painful is the realization that it's already been tried, over and over again, to no avail. They either don't care or can't understand the famous axiom: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
