Tell Us How You Really Feel, John

In an unbelievable display of honesty, John Boehner, the same man who made “where are the jobs” his mantra, admits he doesn’t really care all that much about them. To those that have been paying attention, this isn’t news. Since they regained control of congress, the GOP has evidently made a pact to explicitly not deal with the number one issue on Americans’ minds. Instead, they’ve focused on the culture war and fear-mongering. And it’s pretty rich to hear these hypocrites decrying “big government” even as they attempt to make decisions about your uterus for you.

In fact, even as Boehner is telling the country what his true plans are, he’s making sure to enrich his buddies back in his home state. Just because you don’t call it an earmark doesn’t mean it’s not pork. This goes double when it’s a program that the DoD didn’t ask for, doesn’t need, and doesn’t even want.

For a guy that weeps at the drop of a hat, there are surprisingly few tears for the federal workers who will be collecting unemployment (something he’s also opposed to):

“In the last two years, under President Obama, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs,” Boehner said. “If some of those jobs are lost so be it. We’re broke.”

Actually, the real number is around 20,000 not 200,000 but when have facts ever mattered to a Republican? Tell it like it is, weepy.
