Democrats are finally explicitly accusing Republicans of deliberately sabotaging the economy for political gain, but opposing all jobs bills, even those they had previously supported. The Republicans filibustered about a dozen jobs bills yesterday, and offered none of their own. Barbara Boxer was on television last night saying that she had never seen anything like it.
This as Republicans are weakening on their “no new taxes” pledge. Obviously the Democrats sense blood, as the Republican candidates are afraid to mention the middle class in their debates and Boehner’s only response to a question about what the Republicans intend to do about jobs was that they would “try to stop Obama from doing what he is doing.”
