This was a most righteous rant. Thank you Mr Bashir.
Martin Bashir: Congratulations Republicans on undermining the country
MSNBC -- Jun 1, 2012
Cantor:... I think under the right leadership, we can do better.Bashir:
BUT Mr Cantor is part of the Leadership of this country. He's the Majority Leader in the House. I'm certain the word 'Leader' is on his business card.
But Leader Cantor has done absolutely everything in his powers to be sure that not one of the President's policies on Job Creation, have ever seen the light of day.
Even when an independent analytics firm like Moody's estimates that the American Jobs Act would create about 2 Million new jobs, and raise GDP by a full 2 percentage points -- Mr Cantor prefers his own form of leadership, which is designed to crush Job Creation.
And Mr Cantor's approach has been shared by another 'Leader' in Job Crushing -- the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, a man who also made his monthly appearance today.
I can tell you the Speaker [...] is also too much of a coward to owe up to his all-important role in ensuring that the Economic Recovery of America is as fragile as it it today.
So well done Mr Cantor and Mr Boehner, Congratulations! You always wanted to undermine the President -- but what you've done, is undermine the country.
Well said Martin Bashir. The current installment of GOP Leadership should take a long look in the mirror. And then have to explain to the American People: Why they've done next to nothing to promote American Jobs.
-- after promising in 2010, that "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" was their Top Priority.
Hey Speaker Boehner, Where are the Jobs?
Meanwhile President Obama continues to demand the Republican-led House of Congress -- actually act.
As the Republican-led House continues to complain about the dearth of Leadership that consumes their stint at the wheel, and that will consume their chances this fall too.
President Obama calls on Congress to respond to jobs report by moving forward with his jobs plan
by Jed Lewison, dailykos -- Jun 01, 2012
President Obama noted that Congress did pass the tax cuts in his jobs bill, but has stonewalled its other proposals, including a plan to put state and local workers like teachers, cops, and firefighters back on the job, a plan to put construction workers back to work, and a plan to lower interest rates for underwater homeowners. "There's no excuse" for inaction, Obama said. "Not when there are so many people out there looking for work."
Obama said that is "a problem we can fix right now" by Congressional passage of his plan to help states put teachers, police officers, and firefighters back on the job.
Obama also said Congress should take invest in infrastructure projects to put construction workers back on the job. "Congress should have passed a bill a long time ago putting thousands of construction workers back on the job rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our runways," he said.
Obama said that "instead of talking about job creators" Congress should help them by passing tax credits for small businesses who hire workers and raise wages. He also called on Congress to provide assistance to responsible but underwater homeowners to allow them to refinance.
Psst! Leader Cantor. Psst! Leader Boehner.
The American People aren't stupid. We got youtube. Psst, we know how to use it too.
The American People know who is putting their own career ambitions, above and beyond the very real needs of their constituents.
This fall you will know it too ... the pain and misery of being out of a Job.
Get ready GOP-Stonewallers, your time is coming. Who needs Do-nothing "Leaders" anyways?
The American People certainly don't.
PS. Dems only need 25 seats to win the House
