No, Pelosi, YOU Show Us the Jobs

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not take up the Senate’s “doc fix” bill, which passed through the Senate on Friday.:  A letter[1] from Pelosi reaffirms her position and scolds Republicans for blocking the jobs portion of the bill:

“What is it that Republicans in the Senate and House don’t understand about the need for jobs in America? I see no reason to pass this inadequate bill until we see jobs legislation coming out of the Senate. House Democrats are saying to Republicans in the Senate: Show us the jobs!”

It’s humorous to hear Pelosi whine on this—if my memory is correct the Democrats control both Chambers and passed the $787 billion stimulus bill to create ” jobs, jobs, jobs.” : More than one year later, we now know that the “stimulus failed[2],”: and a second $17 billion stimlus/jobs bill was passed[3]—which: somehow still is not enough.

So,: we have more than $800 billion in stimulus spending “designed” to create jobs and now Pelosi has the audacity to blame the GOP after the two previous massive, generational-theft: stimulus bills failed.:  Are you kidding, Nan?

Why not release the remaining slush stimulus funds that have yet to be spent or are they really the escrow account[6] you will need before the elections?:  Or are you trying to backfill the failures of the original stimulus, which has proven to be nothing but a big payoff[7]?

Either way, we cannot afford it, and maybe Washington should take a page out of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s book[8].
