Open Question: How many House Bills has the senate taken up this term?

I don't know the answer to this, and I'm on the run. I'm curious if we can find the real obstructionists in Washington...

Ok guys, time to pivot to jobs…..everybody ready????

The White House, for at least the fifth time this year, is seeking to pivot to the economy, this time in a bid to change the subject from the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare.

It’s a common play for the White House, which frequently seeks to refocus attention on its jobs and infrastructure agenda when facing political crises.

The move is so familiar that NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd has dubbed it the “déjà pivot.”

The Hill counted at least five times the White House has sought to pivot to the economy this year by reviewing news accounts.

Republicans, citing their own statistics, argue that President Obama has circled back to the economy at least 14 times since 2011.

The formula is rote: Following a misstep or messaging error that battered Obama’s approval ratings, the White House announces events intended to promote the president’s economic agenda.

The most recent pivot began Monday with Obama’s trip to the West Coast.

It's stunning to think that somebody would actually believe an internet graphic like that at face value.

Here's one that passed the House.... Did Reid take it up?

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr803

Of course he didn't.
Those aren't job bills.

You should actually read the bills. Not just post stupid stuff with no explanation.

From the Second Link.

Quote:
Key Policy Points

1. It eliminates ineffective and redundant programs
2. It empowers job creators and promotes accountability
3. It cuts through the bureaucracy
That's not a job's bill -- that's a cut government programs we don't like bill and curtailing worker rights bill --
Quote:
Revisions in the bill would prohibit representatives of labor organizations from State workforce investment boards.

And then you post a bunch of links to bills allowing Federal Land to be used for drilling? Get the F out of here. Those aren't Job bills either.

Let's look at another one.

H.R. 1564: Audit Integrity and Job Protection Act:

Quote:
To amend the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to prohibit the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board from requiring public companies to use specific auditors or require the use of different auditors on a rotating basis.
Not a Jobs bill either. Less regulation bill.

Nice attempt at spin though.

I am certain any bill the GOP is passing can be argued to be a jobs bill if you make the leap far enough.

Cutting food stamps? We're trying to get people off food stamps and into the job market!! JOBZ BILL!

Frankly, gridlock in itself is a jobs bill. Or at least it would be if we didn't have this economy choking Obamacare bill suffocating everything.
