Eric Can’tor Says “NO” To American Jobs


DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz rips Eric Can’tor for his unwillingness to even allow a vote on the American Jobs Act, or for that matter to lift a finger to create American jobs in any other way either. And no, Can’tor’s repeated refrain about “regulatory uncertainty” causing companies not to hire is nothing other than complete and utter nonsense — that, according to none other than former Reagan, Bush 41, Jack Kemp and Ron Paul economics advisor Bruce Bartlett, who calls “regulatory uncertainty” nothing more than “a canard invented by Republicans that allows them to use current economic problems to pursue an agenda supported by the business community year in and year out.” And, as Bartlett adds, this Republican canard is “not a serious effort to deal with high unemployment.” Nor is anything coming out of Eric Can’tor’s mouth a serious effort to deal with high unemployment, or anything other than a canard, than disproven ideological blather and brain-dead nonsense. Sadly, that about sums up today’s Republican Party, which is why the stuffed shirt/empty-headed Can’tor fits in so well as a “leader” of that cuckoo-for-cocoa-puffs bunch.
