House content to waste our money

I am appalled to see that the House voted for the 31st time last week to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act! And this is done with our tax dollars? Those that joined the House after the 2010 election campaigned on developing jobs and helping bring down the debt. I haven’t seen any jobs bill come out of the House. So what do they spend their time doing? Trying to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) that has already helped many people and will be helping more in 2012 and 2014.

Speaker Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell have both declared publicly that their No. 1 priority is to see to it that Obama is a one-term president. What an admirable goal. Good use of our tax dollars. No wonder we have gridlock in Washington! With the goal of making Obama look bad, they vote down issues that they used to favor and support. But no, if the president asks them to do something, they will say no, “just to make him look bad.” How does the majority party live with themselves?
