Boehner defends doing nothing

See also

Every time that a Republican tells you that they are all about creating jobs and advancing the economy, just point to their record. It isn’t true. They have depleted the Middle Class and made matters much worse.

Democrats should be glad that Boehner is talking again. He said yesterday that he doesn’t have a legislative solution or alternative to Obamacare.

Now, he says that he is proud of his record at having done nothing. He defends that by saying that he tried to pass 150 bills that he claims would have created jobs. Basically, he puts every bill in that category just to make an unsubstantiated point.

What we have is a President who tries and errors versus a Congress that does nothing and makes matters worse. Whose side are you on?

“Boehner defends 'do nothing' House, turns blame to Democrats

By Pete Kasperowicz and Lauren Schneiderman

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday defended the legislative record of the House, saying it passed nearly 150 bills aimed at boosting job creation, all of which have been blocked by Senate Democrats.

On the House floor, Boehner said House Republicans had passed several bills to ease federal regulations, allow for more energy independence and scale back or eliminate ObamaCare. He also noted bills aimed at reforming job training programs, boosting protection from cyberattacks, and helping schools recruit and keep good teachers.”
