Here are just a few since 2011:<quoted text> That would be your version. Who stated day one what their goal was?
H.R. 2018, the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act
The bill would 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 would reduce the federal government’s power over individual state’s water quality standards to help increase job growth.
H.R. 2587, Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act
The bill would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from ordering any employer to close, relocate or transfer employment under any circumstance. Washington already has too many harmful regulations that hurt job growth. The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act would help ensure that the government agency does not over step their bounds by dictating decisions made by private sector companies.
H.R. 1230, Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act
The Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act (H.R. 1230) would establish statutory deadlines for sales of certain oil and gas leases in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). CBO estimates that enacting this legislation would reduce net direct spending by $25 million over the 2011-2016 period and about $40 million over the 2011-2021 period. Restarting offshore leasing will help restore thousands of jobs.
Harry Reid blocked each and every bill passed by the House instead of sending them to committee and taking an up or down vote.
That's how our system works no matter who's sitting in the White House. Or used to.
You shouldn't be surprised there's gridlock. Obama and Reid created it intentionally.
