House GOP unveils jobs plan 

House Republicans unveiled a jobs plan on Thursday, though much of it was a repackaging of ideas that they have already passed or proposed in one way or another, such as lowering corporate tax rates, removing burdensome regulations and boosting domestic energy production.

The plan, which you could read here, would cut the corporate tax rate to 25 percent by removing special interest loopholes, though it doesn't specify which loopholes.

It also pledges to "approve legislation that requires a congressional review and approval of any proposed federal government regulation that will have a significant impact on the economy." Though it's unclear who would be the arbiter of what would have a "significant impact," even if such legislation were to pass

Republicans vowed to pass trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea.

They also are pushing ways to expand domestic energy exploration and production, ease the patent approval process and make it easier for highly-skilled workers to obtain visas.
