What The GOP Has Done In 11 Days

February 1, 2011

Life in Sherman Oaks gives us a bird’s eye view of the Republicans’ priorities since the new Congress began. They have presented 28 bills to repeal health care reform, but ……

NOT ONE SINGLE BILL TO ADDRESS OUR ECONOMIC OR UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM! (That’s because the wealthy and Wall Street are no longer affected.)

It appears to me that their “change we can believe in” is no different than President Obama’s.

(Pardon the spelling and grammar mistakes.)

In the first 11 days of operation, the GOP introduced NO legislation regarding JOB CREATION.

However, they have obsessively introduced 28 bills designed to repeal or defund health care reform:

H.R. 105 Dan Burton, GOP – Indiana : To repeal the Patient Protection Act & enact in its place incentives for people to buy health insurance.

H.R. 118 John Fleming, GOP – Louisiana : To permit a state to elect not to have an American Health Care Exchange.
