The Republican Job-Killing Agenda Rolls On As Republicans Vote To Lay Off 290K Teachers, Firefighters and Police Officers

The G.O.P. Job-Killing AgendaWith Republicans having just voted to fire 290,000 teachers, firefighters and police officers right before skipping town, we thought it was worth taking a look at all of the job-creating legislation that Republicans have voted against this Congress. As you can see, turning their backs on our children’s teachers and our communities’ public safety officials is just the latest plank in the Republican Job-Killing Agenda.

Please see the new video and chart detailing the Republican Job-Killing Agenda.
