QUICK CLIP – DCCC Chairman Israel: Republicans’ Only Jobs Plan Is $40 Billion ‎Big Oil Subsidy

On MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Show this evening, DCCC Chairman Steve Israel said Speaker Boehner and Congressional Republicans have the wrong ideas for what a jobs bill should be.

Chairman Israel said: “Well, [Congressional Republicans are] good at sound bytes; they’re good at partisan rhetoric. But let’s not forget that this is a group of people that were willing to shut down the entire federal government just a few months ago to pursue their right wing orthodoxy extremism and ideology. […] Their idea of a jobs bill is a 40 billion subsidy to big oil. That’s not a jobs bill, that’s a special interest bill. You want a jobs bill – invest in manufacturing, infrastructure, education – that’s what creates jobs, not subsidies to the special interests.”
