Note to "Scrambling" Boehner: It's the Policy, Not the Process on Highway Bill

Just a quick note for Speaker Boehner: When it comes to your behemoth of a highway bill, the problem is your policies, not the process. Republicans are scrambling to split the bill into parts to make it more palatable to Republicans already skeptical of the measure, but that won’t change the fact that the bill destroys 550,000 jobs, bankrupts the highway trust fund by 2016 and leaves our roads and bridges woefully underfunded.

Suggested Questions for Boehner Press Conference

With Speaker Boehner and Reps. Mica and Hastings set to discuss a long-term surface transportation bill at a press conference this morning, we here in the Democratic Whip Press Shop wanted to offer up a few suggested questions to pose for the lawmakers:

1.) After 11 months in the majority, why have Republicans still not come up with a comprehensive jobs plan?

2.) If Republicans are focused on infrastructure as you claim, why did Senate Republicans block a bill that contained provisions of the American Jobs Act that would have invested in infrastructure and created jobs?
