Republicans won dozens of elections last fall after claiming Democrats had focused too little on creating jobs.

  • Their whole existence is to repeal the HCB, they don't care about jobs or the people.
    We'll wait a long time for the GOP to do anything of importance....

  • They already ensured that taxes wouldn't be raised (by letting the Bush taxs cuts expire) - that's more than the Dems did. This will at least help save jobs.

    What exactly do you propose they do?

  • OP, are you aware of all the bills, debates, and committees that are currently going on in the House and the Senate? Or are you simply relying on the news to feed you, your daily dose of "talking points"?

    Please do share grly. What bills, debates and committees?? Obviously the OP wants to know where the jobs are and what the GOP is doing. Enlighten us and don't feed us news, share the bills etc.

    It isn't costing us a damn thing. Gov needs to live WITHIN their means. If I make 20 bucks and hr I don't spend like I make 50 an hr because I think my employer should pay me that much. I live within the means of 20 an hr.

  • As an employer it appears to me they are trying to improve the jobs outlook. It isn't the governments place to CREATE jobs. It is there place to create and maintain an environment where business can not only grow but thrive.
