Maybe it would be more clear if one did a google search regarding the 30+ bills passed by the house that hairless reed refuses to bring up for a vote.

We've already had this discussion.

Posted by Speaker Boehner's Press Office, January 24, 2012:

"The Democratic-controlled Senate is sitting on nearly 30 bipartisan House-passed jobs bills – including proposals supported by the president."

Eric Cantor claims that "House Republicans have passed 40 jobs bills that are currently stuck in the Democrat controlled Senate."

H.R. 2560 - The Republican Jobs Bill was tabled by Senator Reid by a vote of 51-46.

So, let's take a look at Cantor's list:

H.R. 872 Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act: Intented to eliminate the requirement of a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the use of pesticides already approved for use under FIFRA. It was passed in the House in 2011.

H.R. 910 Energy Tax Prevention Act: Prohibits the EPA from pursuing its climate change agenda for regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act; Republicans claim "this will save countless jobs and protect our economy from the tens of billions of dollars such a regulatory tax would cost." It passed the in the House in 2011.

H.J. Res. 37 Disapproval of FCC's Net Neutrality Regulations: Mere a resolution expressing disapproval of the net neutrality rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission.

H.R. 2018 Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act: To amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to preserve the authority of each State to make determinations relating to the State's water quality standards. This bill was renamed H.R. 1948 and is sitting in House committee.

H.R. 1315 Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act: Make it easier to restrain the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from issuing regulations that Republicans believe could interfere with the safe operation of U.S. financial markets.

H.R. 2587 - Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act: Prohibits the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance. Passed the House in 2011.

H.R. 2401 Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation Act: Requires analyses of the cumulative and incremental impacts of certain rules and actions of the Environmental Protection Agency. Passed the House in 2011

H.R. 2681 - Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act: To provide additional time for the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to issue achievable standards for cement manufacturing facilities. Passed the House in 2011

H.R. 2250 EPA Regulatory Relief Act: Hailed by Republicans as a "timeout" from long-delayed regulations aimed at mercury that threatened to raise costs on boiler operators and incinerators. The measure exempts smaller burning facilities from any regulation at all.

H.R. 2273 Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act: A restructuring of regulating of the management and disposal of coal combustion residuals.

Well, you get the idea. None of these are worth wasting the Senate's time addressing. They are all cut from the same Republican cloth...Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act; Regulatory Accountability Act; Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act; REINS Act; Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act; Small Business Tax Cut Act; Health Care Cost Reduction Act; 3% Withholding Rule Repeal UGH!!! Doesn't the House have better things to do than play partisan poltics?

very few companies will consider hiring the long-term unemployed because of the perception that these people are lacking in motivation...a reasonable assumption...

What part of the GFC in 2008 was fictional and Hollywood produced. I think Madoff made Gordon Gecko look like he was Mother Teresa. What about all those Bankers who came out as clean skins with a slap on the wrist fine. Not even Hollywood could come up with that.
In Hollywood the goodies always overcome the baddies, haven't seen much of that happening yet down at Wall St.
despite the publicity. Bernie Madoff was a small-timer who affected relatively few people...

Madoff ran a classic affinity scam that trapped only those who thought they were part of the "in-crowd" and getting a special deal not available to Gentiles....victims of their own greed who deserve no sympathy...

I would suggest you Google...Republican controlled House of Representatives roadblock to progress.
I suggest you get a reality check, nothing Barry has done or will do can be considered progress, especially his worthless $480 billion "jobs": bill which he has no money to pay for it with.

However the republican controlled House has passed 4 bills that would create immediate progress and jobs with minimal cost to taxpayers.
Harry Reid will not even bring them up in the Senate and the boy blunder Barry won't even mention them.

When Barry says he wants to work with congress, it's simply another of his legion of lies.

wise up.

----------
""Senate Panel: No 'Stand Down' In Benghazi, No Military Saviors
The Senate Intelligence Committee made headlines last week by reporting that the 2012 attack in Benghazi was preventable. But frankly, we knew that. The deeper message of the bipartisan report was that Republicans in Congress wasted a year arguing about what turned out to be mostly phony issues.
The GOP's Benghazi obsession was the weird backdrop for foreign-policy debate through much of last year. Sen. Lindsey Graham used it as a pretext for blocking administration Republican members as well as Democrats.""
so, where was he and what was he doing? should be simple enough to answer. Why don't you answer? A sentence or 2 should be ample to answer.

I'm pretty sure that most of your posts sound like they come from a raving lunatic and you know nothing about an abundance of subjects.

Anyone who agrees with Barry and his trillion dollar deficits, among other things, clearly can't be thinking straight.

Anyone who thinks Obamakare could possibly succeed is clearly lacking in knowledge, intelligence, sophistication or common sense.

You might want to take more pride in your white half, whitey has made our entire civilized and technologically advanced world possible. Today's white liberals are self loathing, no other population of the world acts as white liberals do today. Not blacks, not browns, not Arabs, not Chinese, Not native americans, not Zimbabweans.
