Killing Jobs Again

November 04, 2011 8:06 am ET

Yesterday, every single Republican in the Senate voted AGAINST putting 450,000 Americans back to work fixing our roads and bridges in order to prevent millionaires from chipping in just a fraction of one percent more on the money they make over a million dollars. It's the 3rd time in four weeks they've voted to kill jobs.


CORE MESSAGE

Once again, Washington Republicans chose tax giveaways for millionaires instead of jobs for regular Americans.

Connect: Ordinary American families are struggling -- millionaires and billionaires are not.

Define: But once again, Washington Republicans chose more tax giveaways for the 1% instead of jobs for their constituents fixing roads and bridges in their own hometowns.

Illustrate: They chose NOT to put Americans back to work, NOT to put money in the pockets of working Americans, and NOT to put more customers in our stores.

Expose: Millionaire tax giveaways won't create jobs, but that's the Republican political strategy: keep the economy from getting better so they can blame Obama.


NUMBER TO KNOW

  • In a new poll of Florida voters, 52% of Independents agreed that Republicans are intentionally stalling efforts to jumpstart the economy to hurt President Obama politically.
