Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry unveiled his plan for job creation Friday. And he said it would be easy to do without President Barack Obama in office, The Hill reports
“The plan I present this morning — Energizing American Jobs and Security — will kick-start economic growth and 1.2 million American jobs,” Perry said in a talk to steelworkers outside of Pittsburgh. “It can be implemented quicker and free of Washington gridlock because most of it does not require congressional action. Through a series of executive orders and other executive actions, we will begin the process of creating jobs soon after the inauguration of a new president.”
Perry focused on the energy sector. “Natural-gas exploration is a game-changer that can bring new opportunities to replace the ones that have been lost,” he said. “Development of natural gas will create jobs in the supply chain and lead to lower energy costs for manufacturers. . . . Creating jobs in America is as simple as changing presidents,” because the president can curb energy regulations.
