    In 2010 Republicans ran on Jobs Jobs Jobs but when elected voted against all bills to create any jobs and help to make the economy get better? iguess they have a very cordinated plan? I think it is time to make the jobs voting record public and ask the replublcans to look in the mirror and ask again where are the Jobs!!!

    The Reverend Al Sharpton has these statistics posted to his Facebook page:

    The Tail of Two Tax Rates

    Clinton: Top Marginal Tax rate: 39.6 percent....private sector jobs created: 20.8 million

    Bush: Top Marginal Tax Rate: 35 percent...private sector jobs created: 663,000 lost

    Certainly there are other factors involved, but these statistics go contrary to what the Republican Propaganda machine is saying.  And lets not forget that without growing the government and adding government jobs, President Bush's overall job created performance would be abysmal...600,000 plus jobs lost in eight years.

    Comparing to the Obama Presidency, once he got past the nose dive that was occurring when he took office (losses of 700,000 jobs per month), and the effects of the stimulus started to kick in, job growth became positive...adding a cumulative 4.7 million private sector jobs in 27 months.  The growth has been slower than anyone would like, but it still is positive.  However, any growth is still remarkable considering the sabotage efforts of the Republicans to scuttle any bills that might have a positive effect on jobs.  Yes they finally passed a Transportation bill before they went on their vacation, but this bill was bare bones keeping the existing projects moving along, but hardly the big stimulus project needed to rebuild our decaying infrastructure.

    In my opinion, the only cordinated plan the Republicans have is to unseat President Obama.  By blocking any and all jobs bill introduced by President Obama, they are hoping to make him look bad to the voters.  There is no thought to the people who are desparate for jobs.  Reverend Al Sharpton's stats pretty much says it all!
