Jobs v. Deficit

Eugene Robinson, in this morning's Washington Post, reminds the President that most Americans are more concerned about job creation than deficit reduction. The President is well-advised to go on a week-long tour of factories and companies that are hiring people and encourage others to do the same. And, he can use those visits to remind people that one of the best ways to deal with the long-term deficit is to create a vibrant economy in which all those who want work find it, and therefore pay taxes.
