GOP In 2011: Anything But Jobs

Throughout the 2010 campaign cycle, Republicans capitalized on the struggling economy to bolster their case for election, promising to focus all their political efforts on job creation. Yet when the GOP assumed the majority in the House of Representatives, it quickly became clear that their "top political priority" — as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) admitted — was to "deny President Obama a second term." As such, the GOP, particularly in the House, has spent its legislative time on anything and everything but legislation to help the struggling economy get back on its feet or to spur job creation. Instead, they've introduced bill after bill on hot-button issues, particularly women's reproductive health; they've dragged the economy to the brink of disaster by playing political games with the debt ceiling; they've done their best to undermine the social safety net by proposing cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps; and they've tried over and over to repeal or deny funding to the landmark Affordable Care Act. Even worse, a number of the measures they've proposed would actually destroy jobs.

GRAPHIC: A Timeline Of GOP Economic Sabotage

After leading his caucus in a record-breaking number of filibusters during 2009 and 2010, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) declared in November 2010 that "our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term." Below is an infographic demonstrating some of the major episodes of Republican economic sabotage in the year since McConnell announced that top priority. These moments are the backdrop to our documentary, Sabotage: The Story Behind the Republican Party's Top Political Priority, in which economists Jared Bernstein (CBPP), Heather McGee (Demos), and John Irons (EPI) explain how Republicans have reversed their past support for various common-sense policies during this recovery to serve their political goals.
