Reid is following Obama's directions to make the Republican controlled house look bad and continue the marxist agenda after 2014..however those in the know can see a backfire going.(chuckle)
Tell your boy Harry to "get off his ass!"
Read my posts above to see all this gibberish refuted, fool. If you CAN read, you certainly can't WRITE intelligently.

I repeat for your benefit, moron: Harry Reid and Dems are under NO OBLIGATION TO PASS ANY REPUBLICAN LEGISLATION. None. And that's made even more meaningful by GOPee unwillingness to pass any Dem legislation, however meaningful or timely.

Tell your brain to start working, or maybe grab some caffeinated beverage. You're clueless at this point, drone...

Deregulation of Corporate America, through bills proposed by Republicans and no doubt proposed to THEM by lobbyists of their corporate masters, is NOT "job creation" except in the minds of GOPee and Rightie drones.

Let's get that straight right now. Deregulation = Profit. Period.

<quoted text>USDA Cancels food for Women and Children, instead subsidizes Wineries.
On Wednesday, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) of the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs penned a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack pointing out waste and abuse within the department that could be cut in order to pay for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) assistance that the department slashed for 600,000 women and children. Coburn points out that despite sequestration, on April 4, representatives from the USDA Rural Development Office held “a workshop on their agency’s economic development and affordable housing programs” for residents of Martha’s Vineyard. Clearly, affordable housing is not the key issue in an area whose cheapest home is listed at $260,000 (a two-bedroom condo). In fact, Coburn points out, the “entire island of Martha’s Vineyard has been designated as a rural area eligible for taxpayer backed home loans by USDA.”

<quoted text>The despicable obstreperous recalcitrant Senate Majority Leader is sitting on 26 jobs bills submitted by the U.S. House of representatives. The best kept media secret in town is out and it's time to give it major exposure as Gallop shows that unemployment is at 19 %. Forget about the administration lies, about 8.2% looking for work. Ask yourself this, when do they tell the truth?
According to Reuters, everywhere Speaker Boehner goes, he now carries in his left breast-coat pocket a four by eight card that lists the two dozen jobs bills that have passed the House but lay dormant in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Boehner’s card, says Nathan Gonzales of the Rothenberg Political Report, may presage a broader electoral strategy:
“If they can demonstrate what they are for, they can rebut Obama’s charge that they are ‘obstructionists’ who aren’t for anything,” Gonzales said.“But we have to see to what extent Republicans are willing and able to follow this playbook.”
All 242 House Republicans have been urged by leadership to flash these cards at Washington news conferences as well as town-hall meetings and campaign events back home.
The Senate Republicans led by moron Mitch McConnell used
over 300 silent filibusters to make sure nothing came to a
vote they didn't want to vote on.

Republicans are pure chickensh*ts when it comes to
voting straight up.

The ‘Great Wall of America’ and the threat from within Cynicism, hypocrisy and an entirely un-American urge to exclude are the foundation of the barrier that stretches along the border with Mexico.
Between cynicism and hypocrisy lies the 2,000-mile U.S.- Mexico border. America is raising a wall in the desert to separate Mexican drug exporters from American drug consumers.

You want to talk about hypocrisy? Let's.

Illegal entry into Mexico will earn you two years in prison.

Document fraud or evading deportation are serious crimes.

Illegal re-entry will earn you ten years in prison.

Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without any due process at any time.

All law enforcement entities must enforce immigration laws, including deportations. Even citizens are empowered to make citizens arrests of illegal aliens and report them to authorities.

Want to immigrate to Mexico? You will need to prove that you are in good mental and physical health, that you have no criminal history, that you have your own money and won't be a financial burden and have your own healthcare coverage...and I found this the most interesting: That you don't upset natural demographics...yeah, and Americans are racists!

Mexico doesn't require a fence or a wall on their northern border, because they enforce their strict laws. And America wouldn't need one either if they did the same. Now, do you want to talk about their southern border??

When they do what their constituents require, it's very courages..dumbass. That's why there were elected, to put the brakes on the horrible dem madness from 2006-2010 when nancy got fired.(Chuckle)

The dem seante sits on republican bills that in writing have the same success as they are having in many states. Can't have republican success, can we?? Might lose your marxist dreams.

Perhaps not, but they are obligated to serve, to the best of their abilities, the people that elected them, and the nation as a whole.

Simply put, they are doing neither.
