But let me not speak for them. Green Eagle has carefully extracted from this document every single sentence that could be regarded as presenting a concrete proposal, and here it is:
"In order to ease the regulatory burden on the economy and to promote job creation, we will approve legislation that requires a congressional review and approval of any proposed federal government regulation that will have a significant impact on the economy."
I.e. making it essentially impossible to impose any regulation whatsoever on corporations
"We will set the top tax rates at no more than 25% for job creating businesses."
I.e. tax cuts for the rich
"Congress should also reform the tax code to allow worldwide American companies to bring back their overseas profits without being subject to double taxation so they can invest in our economy."
I.e. rewarding American corporations for moving our jobs to third world countries.
"We will pass three pending free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea. This will be a shot in the arm for businesses small and large and will create jobs."
I.e. doing even more to encourage American corporations to move our jobs to third world countries.
"We will modernize and improve the patent system to discourage frivolous lawsuits, expedite reviews, and provide better protection for job creating entrepreneurs."
I.e. allow corporations to steal ideas from inventors without fear of legal reprisals.
"After a systematic review of our visa system, the Congress should undertake prudent reforms. The House Judiciary Committee is reviewing our visa system to determine the needs of American employers."
I.e. while we scream about illegal immigrants, we will see to it that businesses are free to bring in as many as they want if it helps them lower wages.
"There are two major programs that must be reauthorized next year by Congress to improve the FDA approval process: the prescription drug user fee program and the medical device user fee program. Under these two programs, the FDA collects funds from industry to help expedite the drug and device approval process."
I.e.- no government medical care, but large subsidies for pharmaceutical companies
"House Republicans are taking immediate action through our American Energy Initiative by passing bipartisan legislation to expand energy exploration and production."
I.e. drill wherever you want, baby, and to hell with the environment.
"We will work to control the federal deficit"
By destroying medicare and Social Security.
Well, there you have it. I promise- you have now read every single word of concrete proposal in this sick "jobs" plan. Remember this when, in the coming months, you hear the press and the wise and noble Washington pundits praising this cynical document as a courageous, constructive step toward dealing with the country's problems, and pretending that another round of theft by the rich is a perfect solution for this country's problems.
Update: And here's a perfect example already. From the Washington Post, this headline:
"Obama, GOP unveil competing plans for job growth"
It is embarrassingly obvious that the GOP plan is not a "plan for job growth," but the same old giveaway to the hyper-rich that they have been promoting since they drove Teddy Roosevelt out of the party, this time with a title that speciously claims to be about jobs. But we get this grotesque false equivalence rather than a headline like "Obama unveils plan for job growth while GOP once again serves the wealthy;" which would have the advantage of being true. They know this perfectly well at the Washington Post, but they are still willing to participate in the Republican lying, regardless of the cost to the country. And this is what passes for news in America today.
