In an op-ed, Florida congresswoman and Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz writes that the GOP is hoping the economy will fail, giving the GOP an edge against President Obama in the upcoming national election.

Via Talking Points Memo:

“Americans can’t wait,” she wrote. “They need action now to get the economy moving again. The president continues to work hard to turn the economy around. Republicans need to get off the sidelines and join him and stop rooting for the economy’s failure in order to win an election.”

Democrats have been focusing more fire on Mitt Romney lately as it becomes more likely he’ll win the nomination, and Schultz’s op-ed devoted plenty of time to his recent claim in Nevada that that the White House shouldn’t interfere with foreclosures in order to let the market correct itself:

“Indeed, while the president is focused on saving homeowners thousands of dollars each year by helping them refinance their mortgages, Mitt Romney went to Nevada and told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that we should not “try to stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom.” He went on to say that it would be better to have families lose their homes so investors could swoop in, buy foreclosed homes and turn a profit, literally leaving the average American homeowner out in the cold.This should come as no surprise from the candidate who wants to repeal Wall Street reform to allow bankers to write their own rules. Romney wants to give bankers and traders free rein to run over middle-class families again on their way to raking in record-breaking profits.”

Federal policy-makers, including Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., have blocked President Obama’s Americans Job Act, the president’s signature initiative to ease the country’s unemployment crisis. The administration has said the bill would bring thousands of teaching and infrastructure jobs to Florida.
