    WTG Democrats, another wonderful success story. Worst U.S. Senate in History? You bet.

    With Gallup’s recent report that the U.S. underemployment rate now stands at a jaw-dropping 19 percent, Speaker John Boehner wants to know why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats have yet to take action on the 24 jobs bills passed by the Republican-led House of Representatives.

    "The president really wants to get the economy moving again, maybe he’ll pick up the phone and call Senator Reid and ask Senate Democrats to get off their rear ends." - Speaker Boehner

    Some political analysts believe Speaker Boehner’s comments may forecast the Republican Party’s congressional election strategy. According to Reuters, everywhere Speaker Boehner goes, he now carries in his left breast-coat pocket a four by eight card that lists the two dozen jobs bills that have passed the House but lay dormant in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Boehner’s card, says Nathan Gonzales of the Rothenberg Political Report, may presage a broader electoral strategy.

    Speaker Boehner’s move to go on offense about jobs will prove critical in an election likely to center on America’s stagnant economic growth and persistently high unemployment numbers. Democrats need to win 25 seats to regain majority control of the House of Representatives.

    No, it's an in real life corrupt party man hack douchebag, named Harry Reid, not even putting those bills on the calendar for consideration.

    In a cloture vote, you actually have to go on record as opposing that "progress" thingy that all you socialist twirps keep yammering about.

    They include the "Repeal Obamacare Jobs Bill"
    The " Eliminate Environmental Regulations Jobs Bill"
    And the "Kill Unions Jobs Bill"

    All meant to put dozens of workers back to work

    They are bills that allow for increased coal fly ash to be released into the air, which CON$ say will cause small business to hire more people. :cuckoo:

    Coal Ash Is More Radioactive than Nuclear Waste: Scientific American

    At issue is coal's content of uranium and thorium, both radioactive elements. They occur in such trace amounts in natural, or "whole," coal that they aren't a problem. But when coal is burned into fly ash, uranium and thorium are concentrated at up to 10 times their original levels.
    Fly ash uranium sometimes leaches into the soil and water surrounding a coal plant, affecting cropland and, in turn, food. People living within a "stack shadow"—the area within a half- to one-mile (0.8- to 1.6-kilometer) radius of a coal plant's smokestacks—might then ingest small amounts of radiation. Fly ash is also disposed of in landfills and abandoned mines and quarries, posing a potential risk to people living around those areas.
