The Only Thing You Need To Know About The “GOP Jobs Bill”

Republican Senators are attempting to amend the bipartisan VOW to Hire Heroes Act with their so-called jobs bill—a bill that would actually hurt the economy and cost Americans jobs  Below is the only thing you need to know about the GOP’s effort to weigh down a bipartisan veterans jobs bill with one that kills jobs:

Gus Faucher, the director of macroeconomics at Moody’s Analytics On The GOP Jobs Bill: “But in the short term, demand is weak, businesses aren’t hiring, and consumers aren’t spending. That’s the cause of the current weakness — and Republican Senate proposals aren’t going to address that in the short term.  In fact, they could be harmful in the short run, if the focus is on cutting spending.”  [Washington Post, 10/17/11]
