It's All About Jobs...

...right, Republicans? So tell me, what's the first thing on your agenda when you take over the House on Wednesday, January 5th?*

Republican leaders in the new House say they'll hold a vote next week to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
WHAAAA?!?! But you've spent the last year and a half criticizing the White House for prioritizing the concept of affordable health care for all and that what they really needed to do was focus on the economy and jobs.
The announcement of the Jan. 12 vote by the No. 2 House Republican, Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, sets the stage for a showdown with the Democratic-led Senate.
Excellent! Let's reinstate the power of insurance companies to deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions, dropping you when you get sick after years of paying premiums and opening up that Medicare donut hole again. That'll be a real winner with constituents.

Of course, it's just all for show because it'll never pass the Senate. Welcome to the first week of the 112th Congress. Out with the old, in with... ah, nevermind.

*Why can't Congress go back to work on Monday like the rest of us common folk?

oh it is just the beginning!! They are going to reduce the deficit!! Really? Even though they have not put forth a workable plan or even an equitable suggestion. Their idea of smaller government and savings is to simply reduce public programs and let the corporate rich run amok,

That aught to fix it!!

Discretionary spending is still only 38% of the budget!!

Don't forget rich people still only get one vote!! My crystal ball tells me that they are still talking a big game that they cannot possibly execute politically.

Why are people so stupid. They want smaller bills and "government" but they want all of their services NOW! And don't touch my social security!!

What a waste of time, money and resources and they know it. So, once again the party of "fiscal responsibility" wastes a lot of money. They're the party of fecal responsibility.
