Summers to GOP on job creation plan: We'll get back to you on that

The House Republican leadership team sent a list of suggestions to the White House last week they said would help small businesses create jobs, such as implementing new tax breaks and allowing small businesses to pool together to purchase health insurance.

On Monday, Obama advisor Larry Summers let Republicans know they have their own plans in place that they believe will one day produce jobs, including the $787 billion stimulus, which Summers said in his letter has brought “a substantial change in the trend of job loss.” But Summers did promise to "continue to review” the Republican suggestions.

Boehner's office responded Monday by sending out a transcript of Summers on CNN last February, proclaiming that the stimulus would quickly produce jobs, which even the administration acknowledges is not the case.

“We need to help small businesses create jobs, but the Democrat's proposals for more of the same stimulus spending are the wrong approach and an acknowledgement that the first one isn't working,” Boehner said
