RNC Video: 'Sound Familiar?'- Obama's Focus On Jobs..... Again

By Susan Duclos

In September the Republican National Committee (RNC)produced a one minute video called "Sound Familiar?" which highlights Barack Obama from 2009 until now promising the country that he was focusing on jobs, over and over again.

Video below:

This video played in targeted battleground radio ads ahead of President Obama’s latest ‘pivot to jobs’ speech, where he once again claimed to be concerned about ... yes, jobs.


“We’ve heard this all before,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “For the past two and a half years, President Obama has repeatedly promised to focus on jobs, but, instead, he has prioritized taxing, spending and regulating. The problem is that job creation was never a priority for this president. He spent the summer filling his campaign coffers, going on taxpayer-funded bus tours, playing golf and jetting off to Martha’s Vineyard at a time when 14 million Americans are out of work.

“Expect this president to talk about the same-old economic half-measures that he’s championed since taking office and to blame others for his lack of leadership. The country is yearning for leadership but all we’ve gotten is failed promises filled with misplaced priorities. With ZERO jobs created in the month of August, it’s time to change direction.”

Obama produced a plan he called The American Jobs Act (AJA), a 155 page bill that the Hoover Institution Journal describes as "An infernal mish-mash of taxes, subsidies, and regulations."

The most evident feature of the AJA is that it is a combination of ill-conceived, disparate measures. The wandering quality of the bill makes it impossible to cover all of its silliness, but it is possible to focus on some of the core job provisions, all of which kill the very jobs that the AJA is supposed to create.

They go through many of the portions of the bill that help them render their conclusions so go read the entire piece to learn what is really in Obama tax increase plan.

Barack Obama has been making the same promise to focus on jobs and the high unemployment numbers for 2 years now, yet his actions show a President that has been focused more on raising taxes (20 of them associated with Obamacare, many of which not scheduled to go into effect until after the 2012 election), socializing our healthcare system and now campaigning for reelection.
