Romney’s 12 million jobs plan is a sham

And guess what: Romney’s 12 million jobs plan is a sham: Paul Krugman devotes a whole column to this blog’s favorite topic, the idea that Romney’s 12 million jobs plan is, with no exaggeration, nothing but a ruse. Romney aides are unable to provide any credible backup for the plan’s promises, and economists say the economy is set to create 12 million jobs without any Romney proposals:

To summarize, then, the true Romney plan is to create an economic boom through the sheer power of Mr. Romney’s personal awesomeness. But the campaign doesn’t dare say that, for fear that voters would (rightly) consider it ridiculous. So what we’re getting instead is an attempt to brazen it out with nakedly false claims. There’s no jobs plan; just a plan for a snow job on the American people.

Again, this 12 million jobs plan is the main rationale for Romney’s whole case for the presidency. Why isn’t the fact that it has been revealed to be a sham a bigger media story?

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
