    I've heard a lot of people say "the reps have done nothing to help with jobs but obstruct obama" and i've heard others respond to this claim "you are lying"

    Well I think the Republicans have tried to pass bills to help the economy and jobs. Why do I think this? I think this because I actually researched what bills the republicans have passed out of the house. The majority of these are stalled in the Democrat senate.

    ALL THESE CAN BE VERIFIED HERE http://www.house.gov/


    Rep Bills That Empower Small Business Owners
    Small business owners are being bogged down by burdensome regulations from Washington that prevent job creation and hinder economic growth. We must remove onerous regulations that are redundant, harm small businesses, and impede private sector investment and job creation.


    Review of Federal Regulations
    H.Res. 72 - Passed by the House (391-28) on February 11, 2011

    Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act
    H.R. 872 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Energy Tax Prevention Act
    H.R. 910 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Disapproval of FCC's Net Neutrality Regulations
    H.J.Res. 37 - Senate has blocked a companion measure by a vote of 46-52

    Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act
    H.R. 2018 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act
    H.R. 1315 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act
    H.R. 2587 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on The Nation
    H.R. 2401 - Senate has taken no action to date

    H.R. 2681 - Senate has taken no action to date

    EPA Regulatory Relief Act
    H.R. 2250 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act

    H.R. 527 - Senate has taken no action to date

    REINS Act
    H.R. 10 - Senate has taken no action to date
    Farm Dust Regulation Prevention Act
    H.R. 1633 - Senate has taken no action to date


    Rep Bills to Try and Fix Fix The Tax Code To Help Job Creators
    America’s tax code has grown too complicated and cumbersome. We need a tax code that is flatter, fairer, and simpler to ensure that everyone pays their fair share, lessen the burden on families, generate economic expansion, and create jobs by making America more competitive.

    Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act
    H.R. 4 - Signed into law by the President on April 14, 2011

    3% Withholding Rule Repeal
    H.R. 674 - Signed into law by the President on November 21, 2011

    Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act
    H.R. 3630 - Senate has taken no action to date


    Rep Bills Aimed At Increasing Competitiveness for U.S. Manufacturers
    The more that American businesses export, the more they produce. The more businesses produce, the more workers they need. This means job creation. Expanding market access for U.S. made products will be a shot in the arm for businesses small and large and will create jobs.

    U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act
    H.R. 3078 - Signed by the Preisdent on October 21, 2011

    U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act
    H.R. 3079 - Signed by the Preisdent on October 21, 2011

    U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act
    H.R. 3080 - Signed by the Preisdent on October 21, 2011

    Southeast Arizona Resource Utilization & Conservation Act
    H.R. 1904 - Senate has taken no action to date


    Rep Bills to Encourage Entrepreneurship and Growth
    America has historically been on the cutting edge of innovation and technological development, but we are increasingly falling behind our global competitors. We must make it easier for existing businesses to grow and allow more start-up companies to flourish.

    The America Invents Act
    H.R. 1249 - Signed into law by the President on September 16, 2011

    Veterans Opportunity to Work Act
    H.R. 2433 - Signed into law by the President on November 21, 2011

    Small Company Capital Formation Act
    H.R. 1070 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Small Banks' Access to Capital Act
    H.R. 1965 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act
    H.R. 2930 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Access to Capital for Job Creators Act
    H.R. 2940 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act
    H.R. 3012 - Senate has taken no action to date


    Rep Bills Maximize Domestic Energy Production
    The energy sector is crucial to our economic growth, and high energy costs have a major impact on job creation. We need policies that allow us to harness our abundant supply of natural resources in America, develop new sources of energy, and create jobs here at home.

    Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act
    H.R. 1230 - Senate has taken no action to date
    Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act
    H.R. 1229 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act
    H.R. 1231 - Senate has taken no action to date

    Jobs and Energy Permitting Act of 2011
    H.R. 2021 - Senate has taken no action to date

    North American-Made Energy Security Act
    H.R. 1938 - Senate has taken no action to date



    Pay Down America's Unsustainable Debt Burden by Passing an Actual Budget!
    The federal government is spending and borrowing so much that the United States will soon go broke. Washington’s spending binge has put our nation in debt, eroded economic confidence, and caused massive uncertainty for private sector job creators. It's time to live within our means.

    Budget for Fiscal Year 2012
    H.Con.Res. 34 - Senate has not yet considered a budget of its own

    Thanks for the clarity, Pilgrim.

    Unfortunately this thread will either be ignored, given the usual "nuh-unh", or peppered with useless charts and graphs.


    You've posted only a small portion of the bills that have been passed by Congress but have just been stacked on Harry Reid's desk.

    The Rdeans of the board are quick to scream, "I thought you elected the Repubs to fix the job market, but they haven;t done anything", ignoring the fact that Congress can't do anything ALONE.

    Not much longer.
    When the R's outnumber the D's in the Senate shit will begin to get done.

    To be fair a few that I listed did pass the senate and get signed by obama (and i stated that under each bill), but that is less than 10% of the bills the reps have passed to try and help the economy, jobs, energy, and other things.

    I did a search just a few days ago and there's somewhere around just over 400 bills ignored by the Senate

    For partisan Democrats to acknowledge this thread would be tantamount to admitting that the Democrat led Senate is the actual entity obstructing the process.

    Aw come on guys! It's easier to borrow a trillion dollars or so from the Chinese and spread it around building sidewalks and such to spur job growth and the economy. Dear Leader said so.

    That's because they don't' want the truth.
    They can't handle the facts and truth.
    You can't argue with them because they think that facts are opinions.
    To Liberal Dem's there is not absolutes.
    There for they can't be educated with facts. They won't accept it.
