This is great. The biggest obstacle to getting anything done in America for the last 18 months running (he’s orange, he obstructs, he’s the human road cone) wants to pass something now. As if the jobs will start magically start falling out of the sky like snow once it’s signed. Whee! Jobs!
Hey John. Buddy. Lemme tell you something. We’re on to you. All your bill does is ensure your relevance through the 2012 elections. It won’t create jobs, it won’t save the country, it won’t even do what it’s supposed to do - reduce the deficit - by all that much.
You’re just as complicit in the current culture of spending as anyone else in Washington, don’t fool your pretty little orange head into thinking otherwise. How many times did you vote to spend money - money we didn’t have - on Dubya’s merry little adventures in Iraq? Or the (unfunded) prescription drug benefit? Or your little pet projects for your cronies in Ohio?
Oh we know all about you, John. How for all your bluster you haven’t done a damn thing to ever - EVER - reduce discretionary spending in this country. Look it up, John, you’ve got staffers. If anything you’ve made the deficit worse since you became Speaker.
And even now, you won’t reduce your precious discretionary spending, you’re targeting entitlements and putting it on the back of the poor and elderly. You don’t dare cut any REAL pork because your trough-feeding piggy caucus would ride you out of town on a rail, wouldn’t they? Wouldn’t they John?
Ok, ok, I’m sorry. That was harsh, I know. Please stop crying. I take it back.
