Safe Mode: On
A Reminder Of How The GOP Spent Its Last 4 Years

This is a post from a commenter
on Huffington Post. It's the kind of list that should infuriate anyone
who feels the government should cater to those who vote and the country
it supposedly represents.
It's also a perfect counter for any of you who have Fox news addicted
family or friends (even though they'll never believe what you put in
front of their faces anyway)Two Years Ago, John Boehner promised to be "Laser Focused on Jobs and the Economy" So what has the GOP House been up to?
House Bills passed:

46 Bills on Abortion

113 Bills on Religion

73 Bills on Family Relationships

36 Bills on Marriage

72 Bills on Firearms

604 Bills on Taxation

437 Bills on Govt Investigations
Bills attempted and failed to be passed even by the GOP:

33 attempts to Defund Obamacare.....Failed

15 attempts to Cut Funding for Planned Parenthood......Failed

3 Attempts to Cut Funding for VA Hospitals.......Failed.
GOP blocked bills:

Blocked bill to aid Small Business

Blocked Unemployment extension

Blocked Bank Reform Bills

Blocked Campaign Finance Reform and open Contributions Law

Blocked MULTIPLE Jobs Bills

Blocked Infrastructure Bill

Blocked Ending Tax Breaks for companies that Outsource Jobs

Blocked Wall Street Reform

Blocked Energy Legislation

Blocked Mine Safety Bill

Blocked Oil Spill Liability Cap increase

Blocked Bill to lower Oil Company Tax Breaks

Blocked Bill to impose charging American Oil Companies on Oil achieved in the Gulf
Number of TRUE Jobs Bills even allowed to come to a vote in the House....NONE.



Here's hoping in the New Year that the GOP continues to destroy their
"brand" and the majority of hard-working, practical Americans vote them
all out in the next election cycle.
Only wish we could do it sooner.

  • And the Dems did what?

    Added to the deficit as much as the past 43 presidents combined.

    What else? Oh, ya, split the country and demonize the GOP.

    Face it, both parties do not represent the people at all. But at least the GOP is wanting to cut spending, Obama wants to keep on spending.

    Democrats definitely do not have the high ground in politics. They are playing more dirty that the GOP is.

    If you think the liberal agenda will fix this country you are sadly mistaken.

    What did the Democrats do? O yeah, they gave us the job and economy killing Obamacare, Sotomeyer, nearly 2 trillion in gifts to cronies masquerading as a stimulus package, and 6 trillion more in debt. The next 4 years will be more of the same including now an attempt to abolish the Second Amendment.

When the person lists 604 bills on taxation, is that saying that every one of these was a unique bill that made it to a House floor vote? Or does the list count every amendment and version of a bill as a separate bill? Given that a bill can undergo dozens of amendments and revisions before the House is done, I'm not at all surprised if the person composing this list is playing a little fast and loos More..
