anyone claiming the current Republican House is at fault here is being dishonest on purpose.

the Senate, controlled by democrats have not passed ANYTHING.

Get the forrest out of your eyeball, before pointing out the microscopic splinter that might make its way into ours.

-H.J. Res 37 would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from imposing net neutrality regulations on Internet providers

-The bill would amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act

- amend the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

-The bill would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from ordering any employer to close, relocate or transfer employment under any circumstance.

-The TRAIN Act would establish an 11-member committee, chaired by the Department of Commerce, to analyze the impacts of a number of major Environment Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.

-The bill would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations

-The bill would help to curtail the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Boiler MACT regulations on boilers and industrial incinerators.

-The bill would prohibit the EPA from regulating coal ash as a toxic waste in any state



These are their idea of jobs bills?

They obviously have no interest in leaving an non-toxic America to our children. Perhaps the jobs come in in health care later on to deal with the cancers, genetic deformities, and diseases.
Being you know so much about each of these bills, provide for us exactly what the bill says and EXACTLY how it's passage will positively and negatively affect each of the things you claim.

If you CANNOT provide the asked for info, you are just a typical accuser with no data to back up your claims.

Well...since they took over the House, how many millions of jobs have been created?

What did they do? They stopped cold obama job-killing agenda...or at least the legislative part of it....he will have to be removed from office to stop the EO portions.

Same old attempt to ignore the facts. The repubs weren't in control of the Senate when the authority was granted to Bush. In fact the DEMOCRAT LEADER introduced the bill granting authority.

And the DEMOCRAT'S continually voted for the funding.

"infrastructure repair"'. Let me get this straight.

State/county/city A collected taxes and is responsible for it's own infrastructure. The very same state/county/city DIDN'T" maintain it's infrastructure so now you want me to be taxed to do it?

No thanks. Take care of you own responsibilities.

It is NOT the federal gov'ts responsibility to bail you out because YOUR municipality blew the money.

Nothing like trying to pose oneself is more "literate' than others who one happens to disagree with.

There ya go...calling everyone who doesn't agree with you ILLITERATE.

Saul Alinsky, anyone?

Seriously, we realize it's all you have, but in the interest of not boring people to death, see if you can come up with some new insults.

That would be a pretty long title, so I am guessing a shortened version would be better. But again, who cares what it's called? What matters is what's in it.
Well isn't that what conservatives want...no regulation by the Federal Govt. is that not true. Are you not a true conservative.?
