TAMPA, Fla. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is attacking President Barack Obama's jobs plan as a second stimulus plan that won't put Americans back to work.
President Obama's plan includes some tax cuts, and Perry was asked if he would oppose those cuts. Perry did not address that point directly. Instead, he says Obama's plan would raise taxes.
Perry is also comparing the American Jobs Act with the stimulus package passed in 2009. He says that bill created no jobs and says the new package would create "zero jobs."
Perry's comments came as Republicans sparred during Monday night's debate.
