We have to admit, it’s hard to take Republicans’ “forgettable 15” bills seriously when they’re not taking any action on jobs. Instead, Republicans are bringing to the Floor today:
- 3 suspension bills
- 1 rule for a land-swap bill
…and, that’s it.
That continues the record of this part-time Congress – we’ve been in session 109 days, but we’ve been in recess or in pro forma for 104 days – an almost even split. (That’s 10 district work periods for those of you who haven’t kept track.)
You can’t argue anyone has forgotten their jobs bills when those bills don’t actually create jobs. So their new pocket card is nothing more than half-baked solutions from a part-time Congress.
