House Speaker John Boehner unveils his own jobs plan – but will it work? Earth Institute's Jeffrey Sachs weighs in

With criticism mounting  against Obama's "American Jobs Act," Speaker of the House John Boehner unveiled his own jobs plan yesterday dubbed "Liberating America's Economy" in an early afternoon speech to the Economic Club of Washington.

Much of Boehner's contention with Obama's plan focused on regulation and he told listeners that we need to "remove these barriers and liberate our economy."

Today on American Morning, Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, speaks with Christine Romans about Boehner's plan and weighs in as to whether or not it is a viable solution to the unemployment situation.
