Crapo: Jobs Plan A ‘Pipe Dream’

Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) slammed aspects of President Obama's new jobs plan as a "pipe dream." "It's a pipe dream, and it's also a discouragement, for this reason," Crapo said in an interview with Bloomberg News set to air Friday night. "It's a pipe dream in the sense that he's proposing to do the pay-fors over 10 years, but the spending is happening over two. And we need to remember that." Crapo added that Obama's plan was discouraging because it called for deficit reductions on top of the $1.5 trillion the supercommittee is charged with finding/Daniel Strauss, The Hill. More here.
