Republicans Launch Effort to Turn Labor Day Into Job Creator Day
Geezus. Republicans want to wipe history clean of any contribution American workers have made to the success of this country. This would be my quote/tweet of the day, via TalkingPointsMemo:
I noticed how on Twitter today a number of Republicans were introducing a new spin on Labor Day. As in Labor Day, the day we celebrate job creators. [My emphasis.]
Unquestionably, the one that made me day in humor value terms was that of GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor …
I don’t think there’s any humor in this at all. Once Republicans set a goal, like they’re doing with this, and they hammer away at it for ten, 15, 20 years, they make it happen. So if you have kids, mark my word, by the time they’re adults, if Republicans have their way, “job creators” will have their own Mt. Rushmore and Labor Day will be called National Genuflect to a CEO Day.
