Reich: Obama Should ‘Batter [Republicans] Over The Heads’
Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says Republicans need to be “battered over the heads” for rejecting President Obama’s jobs bill.
He noted on Current TV that the unemployment rate was still relatively high and wages had declined. Reich said many Americans had “almost no economic security at all” and that Obama should “pivot around jobs.”
When it came to Republican obstruction, the University of California professor advised Obama to “batter them over the heads” for blocking his jobs bill.
“Framing the issue is very important around jobs and the economy,” Reich said. “But coming up with specific programs that the Republicans will agree to seems to me almost impossible in this environment.”
