Obama’s Job Council Pushes…Republican Ideas??


Wouldn’t it be something if Pres. Obama created a jobs council to get ideas and proposals to get this economy going, and they came up with almost exactly what Republicans had been pushing for since the beginning of his presidency?

Well, that is exactly what happened.

President Obama lauded the latest report from his jobs council Tuesday, even though many of its proposals sounded like the work of Republicans.

The President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness proposed cutting the corporate tax rate, boosting domestic energy production and reducing government regulations that hinder business.
…………………

The reports’ emphasis on taxes, regulation and energy thrilled Republicans. It’s almost exactly what Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia recommended in the GOP’s weekly radio address Saturday:

“It’s no secret that the number one issue facing our country is jobs. So the number one goal of the Republicans for 2012 is to continue to make it easier for American small businesses to create jobs,” Isakson said. “We’ll accomplish this by focusing on three things: fundamental tax reform, regulatory reform and energy security.”

Who would have thought??? Cutting the corporate tax rate?? Boosting energy production here at home, and reducing govt regulations that keep business from flourishing? Gee, I sure wish Obama would have listened to Republicans on these things 3 yrs ago. Maybe if he had, we wouldn’t find ourselves in this ditch. Better late than never, I suppose. Now, let’s see if he will follow the job council’s advice.
