Recommendations from Obama jobs council have a conservative tilt
Good ideas are not partisan. Economics are mathematically independent of politics. Partisans lament as you wish.
President Obama’s jobs council is recommending a series of job-creating proposals with a distinct Republican flavor — just the latest economic message to emerge as Obama prepares for his contest with the eventual Republican nominee.as first reported by Reuters, the new corporate tax rates should sink to “internationally competitive levels,” the report says, as well as an “all-in strategy” to cut reliance on foreign fuels by promoting domestic sources.
This is just the latest in the new stream of GOP-sounding policy proposals coming from the White House this year. Last week the proposal was to streamline the government by consolidating federal agencies.
White House officials characterize the proposals as common-sense ideas that the president has been working on for a long time. Next week’s State of the Union address is expected to contain more of the same.
