The list of “jobs bills” reveals that the legislation falls into three categories. The largest category is tax breaks and gifts for the oil, coal, and natural gas industries. The second category is regulatory repeal, which is also another gift for big business. The last category is attacks on Obamacare. Boehner’s jobs bills for veterans increased fees for services to vets.
Nowhere on the list of jobs bills that Boehner wrote about is there an actual real live jobs bill.
Boehner has given a list of 40 bills that fit the Republican ideology, but history tells us that cutting taxes for the wealthy, giving gifts to special interests, and rolling back regulations are three policy choices that do not create jobs. Speaker Boehner’s jobs bills would not put more people back to work. The House Republican definition of a jobs bill is different from what most people think of as job creation.
The only job that John Boehner is trying to protect with this bogus list is his own."
Jason Easley, "None of the 40 Jobs Bills That John Boehner Claims House Republicans Passed Create Jobs" (via holygoddamnshitballs)
NOTE: Is Obama supposed to be against these bills? It seems that as bad as Boehner and the Republican congress are, Obama hasn’t been one iota better. He had a firm Democratic lock on both houses of congress for his first two years — coinciding with the worst days of the recession — and there was never any jobs bill. So why would Obama start caring now? He doesn’t have to worry about re-election…
The Bush administrations first report on terrorism (released four months before 9/11). The Bush administration, the Republicans were saying that Bill Clinton made a “Mistake” by “Focusing” on bin Laden. Bush took the focus off of bin Laden in April of 2001.
Remember this as the media tries to make out like 9/11 was Clinton’s fault.
They’re like flat earth people. They have perfectly clear evidence but choose to ignore it.
YOU ARE SO FULL OF SHIT!
What is happening in Iraq was guaranteed to happen and even predicted!
It was literally impossible for any government we left behind to withstand the TAINT of foreign interventionism. And, yes, the left knew this and said it — GONG BACK BEFORE YOU CONSERVATIVES STARTED THE WAR!
Secondly, you radicalized the opposition. A foreign army made up of western infidels invaded their country. Suddenly even moderate Muslims were thinking that the hard-liners were right, that there really is a religious war going on… and there were foreign infidels in their streets to prove it!
Heck, even some Republicans — like Bush’s own Secretary of State — gave you some warnings in advance… “The Pottery Barn Rule”
Remember, "You break it, you own it."
From the moment we stepped foot inside Iraq, the United States became responsible for EVERYTHING. Someone doesn’t have a job? America’s fault! The power went off? America’s fault! The price of something is too high? America’s fault! The road is in bad shape? America’s fault!
Starting the second the first U.S. soldier entered Iraq, we owned it and we owned every problem that everyone had. Heck, America’s own lunatic Reich wing blame Obama for EVERYTHING, even their own policies (like Iraq). Why oh why would you dingbats think the Iraqis would be LESS pathetic than you, when they had a million times more things to complain about?
Stop being cowards. You wanted the Iraq war, you got the Iraq war and you own every last thing that’s happening in Iraq. Conservatives own the failure of Iraq.
- You assume that all conservatives support the Iraq War. Nope.
There were about ZERO conservatives willing to stand against the war until after the quagmire had been achieved. When Chuck Hagel came out against the war he was a U.S. Senator, but he chose not to run for re-election as his “Liberal” stance was so costly. And even as he was saying “This was a mistake” the Reich was deep into attacks on Democrats who were in vocal opposition. The Republican smear machine was in full swing. Max Cleland was subjected to a full-scale smear campaign, his patriotism question (“attacked,” really), and even associated WITH Saddam Hussein & Bin Laden in Republican ads… all in the election just a few months before the war’s start.
- You suggest this wouldn’t have happened without our intervention. Yes it would have.
Bullshit. It not only would NOT have happened, it did not happen. We had ten years of painful sanctions on Iraq, all attacking quality of life, infrastructure and limiting oil income, and STILL nobody could losen Saddam’s grip on the country.
We imposed “No Fly Zones” stripping Saddam of his one major advantage over rebels — air power — and STILL Saddam’s grip never faltered.
We attacked Iraq many, many times. No, not just the two wars but countless times between the two wars! Always as punishment for “This” or in response to “That,” but we never just randomly dropped bombs. Every time we targeted his military and the means for waging war. Still, no rebels could weaken Saddam’s grip.
The left still refuses to accept that this caliphate has always been inevitable because it is a direct result of the Islamic ideology.
- The left still refuses to discuss Jihad.
Which REQUIRES that the same be true of every Muslim state (doubly so for every middle eastern Muslim state) and not just Iraq.
You’re preaching Total War on over a billion people, a third Word War… even as you whine about the inevitable outcome in Iraq.
- The left still shuts down any frank discussion about how Islam damages our society.
This is coming from the same lunatic Reich wing that gave anthrax to Saddam, supplied Iran, protected Iran and had it’s President, Dubya Bush, holding hands & kissing in public with the king of Saudi Arabia.
