House does little under Boehner

In front of an audience, John Boehner tries desperately to act as if he is in total control of the House. He knows he is not in control or even an integral member of the House. He simply received the title “speaker of the House.” His approval ratings have continued to drop. He has called for 37 votes to repeal Obamacare and focused on his war against women and women’s health care issues. Why are we paying the Republican House members to waste our valuable time and money on ridiculous votes? What legislation has the Republican House brought forward to address the single largest problem facing us today: our lack of jobs? What have they done to improve our economy?

Boehner wants people to go to jail for the IRS decisions. Why didn’t he have the same attitude toward Wall Street and large banks, which drove the nation into a recession? Where was the call for those people to go to jail?

Boehner is not good at his job. Thanks to Republican gerrymandering, he gets to keep his job even though the Republicans lost the popular vote in the House and presidency.

The last Republican House under Boehner accomplished absolutely nothing, and this current Republican House has done even less. Remember, the Republicans ran on jobs, jobs, jobs, and have yet to approve any jobs bill presented to them by the president.
