In the midterm campaigns, Republicans aimed their sights on job creation, saying that not enough had been done by the Obama administration to create jobs, and that too much effort was put into other legislation that did not help the economy.
Yet, since being sworn in and taking control of the House, Republicans have focused not on jobs, but on repealing the healthcare act passed last year. They succeeded in passing repeal through the House (although it is likely to fail in the Senate) and moved onto…
Legislation to restrict federal funding of abortions. Not jobs.
To date, Republicans have not presented any legislation to address job growth, despite their campaign rhetoric. Instead, they continue to focus on healthcare.
So, are they on the right track by attacking healthcare first, or should they be focusing on jobs first?
