Republicans Urge Doing Nothing

In a move without precedent in the modern era, Republican congressional leaders including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz) have penned a letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke urging him not to take any steps to help the economy.

We have known this is what the Republicans were up to for a long time, but up to now the Republicans denied their actions to stall the economy were actually intended to help it. Obama should be able to use this to counter the Republicans every time they try to claim cutting jobs is the best way to stimulate employment and other mindfucks.
