Go ahead. Find even one thing in this bill that the Rushpubliscums haven’t been peddling for years. And remember this while you do it: WE’VE TRIED A HELL OF A LOT OF THIS ALREADY, AND WE KNOW THAT IT COSTS US JOBS.

I haven’t made my usual visits to Wingertopia tonight to see how this package of stupidity is being touted, because I am quite certain I’ll have seen every one of their talking points before. Why waste my beautiful mind on the same old bullshit?

Oh, yeah. Speaking of the same old bullshit…

 

Republican leaders in the Senate have for months put the onus on the White House to outline and sell a strategy for economic recovery — and then blasted the president and his fellow Democrats for not pushing a bill that could win bipartisan support.

 

GOP lawmakers have offered a raft of proposals but have resisted presenting them as a single bill that could be evaluated, attacked and — likely — killed in the politically divided Congress.

 

But restlessness with that approach is clearly growing. President Obama has been touring the country promoting his jobs bill and repeatedly calling on Congress to “pass the bill.” After slow-walking the vote, Senate Democrats brought up a version of the legislation this week. It was blocked by Republicans, resulting in headlines that seem to have accelerated the new strategy.

 

“We just thought it was time to put this all into a package. I will freely admit to you that part of it is in response to the president saying we don’t have a proposal,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). McCain led the effort to write the legislation along with Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)

 

“From the Republican point of view, this is a breakthrough,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), another supporter of the bill. “We have to be for something.”

 

The bill is something of a greatest hits of Republican economic proposals. It calls for repeal of the new healthcare law, a balanced budget amendment, expansion of offshore oil drilling, and a tax overhaul that would lower rates and eliminate corporate loopholes.

 

Paul said the bill would create 5 million jobs — although he did not offer a specific time frame.

 

Kland can’t offer a timeframe, because Kland can’t prove that this bill would create even one job. As a matter of fact, we’ve all seen what previous Rushpubliscum tax gimmicks have done, and it sure as hell hasn’t been job CREATION, has it?

The President needs to ridicule this steaming pile of shit. He needs to emphasize that these policies are the precise policies that have us where we are now. The Rushpubliscums are good for nothing, have ideas that amount to nothing, and are leaving us with nothing.

I’m a little tired of nothing. How are you feeling?
