Hardly Working for You!
Are you wondering why nothing is getting done in Washington, D.C.? It might have something to do with the Republican controlled House of Representatives and their work schedule---- they are going on a 5 week vacation! Must be nice. John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Steve Stivers, Pat Tiberi, and the rest of their ilk have given new meaning to the words "hardly working" with their work schedule.
The House Calendar shows that 2 work days are on the docket for August, and only 9 days of work in September. Pathetic. This explains why the Boehner House has been called the least effective in decades.
Republicans have been unable to accomplish anything. They've wasted months, weeks, days, and hours with their 38 votes to try to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Boehner, Cantor, Stivers, and the rest of the Republicans are doing nothing, but they still collect their paychecks and their own health care benefits.
**** Republican Rep. Steve Stivers is still pushing legislation to do more offshore drilling, according to BizJournals. According to OpenSecrets, Steve Stivers has received plenty of campaign support from oil and gas concerns: LINK. It makes you wonder if Stivers is working for the people in his district or his campaign contributors. Stivers said he would be bringing jobs back to his district. Has anyone seen one job he has created?
