In a video released yesterday, John Kitzhaber responded clearly and directly to the so-called "jobs plan" released this week by Chris Dudley. In short, the plan is the usual cut-taxes-and-pray-for-jobs nonsense we hear from Republicans all the time.
Not only that, but Dudley actually tried to claim that his tax cuts would pay for themselves - by use of David Stockman's magic asterisk, an approach to budgeting that even David Stockman has renounced. (Stockman was Reagan's first budget director, who used his asterisk to claim that tax cuts would cause actually cause revenues to rise.)
Meanwhile, Kitzhaber's plan for Oregon jobs would actually start putting people to work right away.
