Mitch Daniels’ Poor Grasp of Facts
Mitch Daniels stated last night that President Obama was trying to form a middle class using government jobs, but he fails to mention that President Obama has cut government jobs while creating more net private sector jobs in his first three years in office than President Bush did during his entire eight years.
Tell me again why George W Bush’s budget director, the man directly responsible for taking a surplus budget and turning it into a deficit budget, is lecturing us on austerity?
Never mind that the unemployment rate in Indiana has risen above the national average on his watch recently. Never mind the fact that his support for right to work legislation threatens to kill even more jobs by forcing companies like BP out of the state.
Save it for people who aren’t paying attention, Mitch.
