The National Republican Congressional Committee’s website proudly asserts on an "issues" page:
Thanks to Republican economic policies, the
economy is robust and job creation is strong. U.S.
Republican tax cuts are creating jobs and continuing to strengthen the economy, yet there is still more to do so that every American who wants a job can find one.
One of the key items on the NRCC’s agenda: “[e]ncourage investment and expansion by restraining federal spending and reducing regulation.” Yup. That’s what we need—less regulation, especially for those financial institutions.
Seriously, there's no mention of our current economic uncertainty, and no comment on the consistent reports of layoffs across the nation. You’d think the people in charge of advancing the Republican cause would at least try to avoid a variation on “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”
