Where Are The Jobs Boehner And Cantor?

After all the yelling and screaming during the election about how the Republicans need to win so they can get down to the business of creating jobs, we now see that all that screaming was of course, bullshit. Because Republicans aren’t really concerned about jobs, unless you count destroying them as somehow concerned. The Raw Story has a great article spelling out what the Republicans really care about…

Republicans won dramatic victories last November by promising to mitigate high unemployment. “This coming election is about one issue: jobs,” to-be Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said weeks before election day. “It’s about jobs that were promised to the American people by the current administration, and were never delivered.”But in the three months since taking over the House and expanding their voices in the Senate, Republicans have yet to pass a jobs-focused bill, instead prioritizing numerous social and cultural issues that are unrelated to job creation — and have little or no chance of becoming policy.

Here are six such legislative goals they’ve been hard at work on.

1) Curtailing Abortion Rights

2) Defunding Planned Parenthood

3) Defunding NPR

4) Investigating American Muslims

5) Declaring English As America’s Official Language

6) Reaffirming The “In God We Trust” Motto

Many of us have said all along that the Republicans are more interested in killing jobs for political reasons than creating them and it is the damn truth too, not just partisan sniping. These boneheads have even thrown their own right-wing economists under the bus, just ignore the facts and go with the repetition of populist platitudes like “governments don’t create jobs, it’s the private sector”. Which runs completely counter to them blaming President Obama for the lack of jobs…I thought government didn’t create jobs. And considering that the massive corporations that run the GOP are sitting on TRILLIONS of dollars of profits from the last few years, I don’t really see those corporations creating too many jobs, except maybe in China, India and Mexico. If the private sector creates jobs, let’s see some jobs, people. If Republicans really wanted to create jobs, you’d think they would call up their buddies with record profits sitting in offshore banks and tell them, hey dudes, how about some jobs?

  1. They don’t give a rat’s derriere about jobs. The bastards are conscienceless.

  2. Don’t forget the House only operate for three days since the boner took over as speaker. I wonder how these Tea Bag House Repugs are going to justify giving them another two years? Granted the idiots that voted for them for the first time around will vote for them again but how can they resell themselves to people who only voted for them out of frustration?

    And what’s going on with these Republican governors and these state houses how can a tea bag house Republican distance themselves? They gotta say they either way they support or don’t support these anti-union moves.

  3. I see where the Republicans in South Dakota want to extend the time frame to get an abortion to 3 days from the current one day waiting period. During this time frame a woman MUST get counseling from a “health professional” which in most cases will be one sponsored by the several REICH-wing religious unlicensed groups since in South Dakota, there is only ONE Planned Parenthood in Sioux Falls (in the far SE corner of the state). Only there do a couple of OUT-OF-STATE doctors cross the Iowa state-line a couple times per week to perform needed LEGAL medical procedures for the WHOLE state!

    GOP love BIG GOVERNMENT in doctor’s offices!!!
