The t-party crew walked into a church and killed a doctor because they like what he was doing. That was in Wichita,KS. The t-party does want to dismantle our government. They don't want women to have any rights. M. Bachmann said you should be submissive and do whatever they want you to do. They want rich white men & women to take over the country. They don't...
Your simple plan simply wouldn't work. A legislator working under those incentives would ration out job creation, delaying government hiring and projects if jobs were already set to increase in a given month. They would raise taxes however much it took to ensure that the deficit decreased. They would create make-work jobs when actual unemployment was rising. Simplistic standards for job performance lead to "legislating to the test". You end up getting the letter of what you asked for, without the substance.
