WH & Job Creation

Posted by Brian Patrick on

FYI –

 

Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted, “the White House doesn’t create jobs,” it “creates policies that allow for greater job creation.” What are those policies coming out of the White House or the Senate, sir?

For months, House Republicans have passed jobs legislation that creates an environment for businesses to grow and expand.
 

  • Question: Sort of to follow on that, why should Americans believe that the White House can create jobs when the unemployment rate has been so stagnant and the record is sort of anemic?
  • Carney: Well, the White House doesn’t create jobs. The government together -- White House, Congress -- creates policies that allow for greater job creation.
