Blue Dog Democrats Support Killing 15 Million Jobs

by Thom Hartmann posted Nov 17 2011 1:19PM
On Capitol Hill – Blue Dog Democrats have signaled a willingness to join Republicans in support of a Balanced Budget Amendment.  According to a report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities – the Balanced Budget Amendment will kill 15 million jobs – double the unemployment rate – and shrink the economy by 17%.  But instead of hanging this devastating economic policy solely around the necks of Republicans – Blue Dog Dems want to spread some of the blame around to themselves. 

I guess they never listened to the advice of Harry Truman when he said – if voters have a choice between a Republican and a Democratic who acts like a Republican – they’ll choose the Republican every time.  Truman was right – in the 2010 election – half of the entire Blue Dog caucus of Conservative Democrats was kicked out of office.  And by supporting the Balanced Budget Amendment – it could happen again.

Listen to me Monday through Friday from 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL AM 1600.
