    In November, soon to be Speaker Boehner and the ambitious Cantor knew they would soon have the power to set the agenda for the House of Representatives and the nation. Nearly 60 days have passed and no job bill has been offered, or to my knowledge discussed and shared with the American people.

    So far the social agenda has been the priority, while I understand paying back the social conservatives is important to the RNC, and providing lip service to the TP is necessary, why haven't Messrs. Boehner and Cantor discussed their ideas on job creation?

    Why have Cantor and USSC Justice Scalia met privately with the Kock brothers (for those not willfully ignorant I suggest strongly a review of thier business and family political history)? Job creation is likely not a major agenda item in this private, closed door meeting, a meeting mindful of former VP Cheney's closed door energy committee meetings. Plutocracy anyone?

    The government doesn't create jobs...except for civil service (union) employees.

    what the hell is JOBS BILL?

    And the First order of Business the people who voted in the Republicans with this last election has been to take on the TAKEOVER of our health care by this commie administration.

    They better stay with it if they want to KEEP THEIR JOBS.

    Signed financial reform law establishing a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to look out for the interests of everyday Americans

    Created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years

    Voluntary disclosure of White House visitors for the first time in US history (hey, remember Jeff Gannon? Male whore "money for pay" prostitute who spent dozens of nights "sleeping over" at the White House?)

    Reversed the policy of barring media coverage during the return of fallen soldiers to Dover Air Force Base

    Launched recovery.gov to track spending from the Recovery Act, providing transparency and allowing the public to report fraud, waste, or abuse

    Recovery.gov - Tracking the Money

    Signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act to stop fraud and wasteful spending in the defense procurement and contracting system

    What the fuck has Obama done so far?

    Right wingers hate the black guy in the WHITE House. They will never see a single accomplishment. Bush did more, but they can't name what. Unless "more" is a list of disasters.

    Hello. So there is no jobs bill, only the same old tried and failed policy: cut taxes, cut regulations and allow the insurance industry to continue a decades old tradition of raising rates, reducing service and denying coverage.
    No concern that Justice Scalia is a confident of the Koch brothers? Or that Eric Cantor spent the past few days in secret meetings with them? Since the meetings was theirs, isn't the agenda important for 'we the people' to know?

    Jobs bill is the Stimulus Bill and it must have created jobs since I printed a list of 114 Republicans in both houses attempting to "TAKE CREDIT" for it.:dance:

    No, Republicans don't care. They only obsess about Obama. Everything else is "whitewash".
