Woo hoo, my first diary here at DK4! Barb has a diary on the FP as of this writing highlighting Speaker Boehner's comments today :

 Boehner: If Jobs Are Lost As A Result Of GOP Spending Cuts 'So Be It'

Given Speaker Boehner's campaign promises of "Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!" and the contrast in what the House has focused on since he assumed his big gavel....coupled with his Marie Antoinette-ish attitude in the above statement, I say let's remind him what he said he was going to focus on.

In Barb's diary, PsychoSavannah made this comment:

His office is getting more (9+ / 0-)
and more flip as time goes on. I still call them, every day, and ask where the jobs bills are. I'm waiting for the day when they laugh at me, but it hasn't happened yet.
202-225-6205 if you want to ask too.

To which I responded that we should have a blitz day where the "kosmunity" calls Speaker Boehner's office and in the exchange I offered to put up a diary so here it is!

Let's call the Speaker's office and (politely) ask: "Where are the jobs bills Mr. Speaker?"

It's one call! You can do one call can't you? 202-225-6205

Be polite but direct and clear. You can also remind the Speaker's office that 10 years of his preferred strategy have NOT resulted in job growth.

"Where are the jobs bills Mr. Speaker"?

While you're at it, here's a list of House members who you might also call if you have the time:

And the member telephone directory:

So, will you call?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
