Remember When John Boehner Was Screaming About Creating Jobs?
For most of the last six years, the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has been screaming (while looking sideways at President Obama) about the need to CREATE JOBS! WHAT WE NEED IS JOBS (here, here)!
Okay, so Republicans control both the House and the Senate now so they’re getting on with creating those jobs right? Not exactly:
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA):
Week one, we had a Speaker election that didn’t go as well as a lot of us would have liked. Week two, we spent a lot of time talking about deporting children, a conversation a lot of us didn’t want to have. Week three, we’re debating reportable rape and incest — again, not an issue a lot of us wanted to have a conversation about. I just can’t wait for week four.
