If Romney and the Republicans [Sounds kinda like a crappy high school band, full of preppy kids, doesn't it?] keep trying to push the discussion towards jobs and the economy, President Obama and the Democratic leadership should more than welcome that debate.
Not only did the jobless rate improve this week, and the unemployment rate go down - again. The numbers for March came in, and America had more job openings in March than we've had since the Bush Recession began. Another study released this week by Bloomberg News, showed that Democrats can accurately claim, since 1961, private jobs increase more when Democrats are in the White House than when Republicans are in control.
There's more. Think Progress pointed out again, much like they did last year, that if Republicans at the state and local level hadn't been implementing austerity economic policies over the last four years, the unemployment rate would be a full point lower than it is now:
Of course, if you think things are only better for working Americans, think again.
As both Ezra Klein and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities recently pointed out, tax rates for the rich have fallen significantly over the last century, even while the top one percent of Americans have continued reaping the economic gains.
So... long and short, if Romney and the Republicans want talk about which party is better on economics?
Democrats are more than willing to have THAT debate.
