I just went to the House GOP Leader’s Blog to see what House republicans are doing about jobs which they say they is there focus: I found this:
COMMITTEE ACTIVITY OF THE DAY
Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution Hearing on
“H.R. 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act”
(Tuesday, February 8th at 4:00 p.m.)
I found the republicans still trying to regulate federal funding for abortions. The last time this came up, all the experts said that because of the Hyde Amendment, THERE IS NO FEDERAL FUNDING OF ABORTIONS.
If you watched the Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC) last night you know that the House Calendar is conspicuously absent of real work. It is all about time away from The Chamber and the listing of holidays. No job related work. For his part, The President gave a speech to the Chamber of Commerce in a tough effort to get big business to use the trillion of dollars they are sitting on to create jobs…at home. For their part republicans will be virtually spending the month at home.
