Sadly with quite a few economists saying that the President’­s job plan would add jobs and curtail a double dip recession is enough to make this verboten to the GOP so hello filibuster­. what is funny is that one of the GOP contenders made a mistake the other day (guess which one) and said that “President Obama didn’t understand economics, that he who had been in the private sector did, and that the fact that companies were sitting on huge cash reserves wasn’t enough to make them hire, there is no demand that’s why they are not hiring” Did you guess that it was Romney who said it?
