President Obama recently put forth a jobs proposal with a number of very popular aspects and a great deal of suggestions for getting our economy back on a good path.
This proposal will not pass.
It will not pass, not because of any economic problem within the proposal, nor because it involves spending. It will not pass because it might, just might, do some good.
This is something that Republicans cannot allow. They cannot allow something proposed by President Obama to be successful.
Why? Because of their priorities. The number one priority of the current Republican organization is not jobs, it's not the economy, it's not the deficit, it's not you: it is the systematic destruction of President Obama.
Now, before you think that I am pulling this out of nowhere, allow me to remind you of an infamous quotation: "Well that is true, [making Obama a one-term President is] my single most important political goal along with every active Republican in the country." That was Mitch McConnell.
How can that goal be met if the President does something that help our country? It cannot. That is why, no matter what the President proposes, the Republicans will allow this country to die.
