Is there a deficit? Most certainly.
Is there job shortage? Absolutely.
Are workers on strike? Oddly enough, yes.
I thought the Republicans in Congress wanted to quit talking about health care and focus on jobs.
That’s all we heard for months.
Then why did 29 of them vote not to allow debate on a jobs bill?
And why did six of them not vote?
And this was for a bill that includes mostly tax cuts.
Call it strategy.
I call it a deficit. Not a budget deficit, but a deficit of ideas, cooperation, good will, and work.
Republicans are not known for being fans of collective bargaining — but it appears they’ve gone on strike.
