Do voters really fall for the GOP deceptive talking points that push people’s buttons and basically offer no real solutions? What will it take for voters to clearly understand the basic truths of what will truly improve our economy that Reich points out?

Congress has an opportunity to pass the Obama Jobs Bill, or at least portions of it that would fund infrastructure projects and keep teachers, firemen and police in their jobs in states all across America. If the GOP really want to create jobs, then they should pass this bill. It will help all Americans in the short term and the long term.
