<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Via ThinkProgress Economy, a brief summary of more economists agreeing with each other that Republican economic policy is a sham. A sentiment echoed in yesterday’s “U.S. Economic Policy Debate is a Sham” column from Bloomberg.

In interviews conducted by The Huffington Post, five senior economists, including Gary Burtless, Mark Zandi, Carl Riccadonna, Joel Prakken, and Jesse Rothstein, have indicated that the GOP jobs package would accomplish nothing positive and would go so far as to even potentially damage the economy. According to Gary Burtless, a senior economist at Brookings, the notion that the Republican proposals might boost jobs is absurd and laughable.

The economists interviewed agreed more with environmental advocates, who argued that the GOP proposals were more likely to kill people than create jobs, than they did with Republican claims that the bills would lead to job creation. Joel Prakken, chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, was concerned with the ramifications of environmental deregulation which would offset any new jobs — “If you increase employment but you have a lot more sick people, you have to ask yourself, ‘What’s the trade-off?’”

As far as resounding endorsements go, “your policies are more likely to kill people than create jobs” is quite a doozy.

It’s hard not to laugh. I’m trying not to and failing</div></div>

Can there be any doubt?

No! There should be no doubt~!

Apparently until Repiglicans begin to come out of their fog, and start to care about the health and safety of their own kids and grand kids, Repiglicans will continue to destroy the planet, make people ill, deny the ill decent care, while they continue to take from all others, to give more to the wealthy thieves.

Citizens United must be overturned.

Gun Laws must be tightened.

Assault Weapons ban, must be renewed.

Women's rights must be preserved.

Gay rights must be fully implemented.

Social Security and Medicare, must be preserved.

Trickle Down must be thoroughly exposed for the scam that it is.

War Profiteering, NEOCON PIGS, must be destroyed by their own reputation for making money off the blood of our youth, and removed from the political arena.

The Military-Industrial Congressional Complex, must be exposed and stopped.

America must invest in re-building the infrastructure, improving education, changing the tax laws to prevent outsourcers from having tax breaks annd loopholes, and protecting our environment, and addressing threatening climate change.

Repiglicans will block all of that, and we will all lose unless we get rid of all of them!
