House Republicans to Act Swiftly to Undo Obama's Mess

When GOP law makers take control of the House in about an hour from now, they plan to hit the ground running. The Washington Post Reports that Republican House members have a "20-day plan aimed at undoing major aspects of President Obama's agenda as they seek to take advantage of the weeks before the Senate's return and the president's State of the Union address."

 

According to the WaPo article, the process will beging with repealing Obamacare (the House has scheduled a January 12 vote to repeal the legislation). GOP members will then seek to identify areas in which to cut billions of dollars in spending. Also on the agenda is the easing of regulations which stifle business activity.

 

Readers must recognize that most of this activity will be symboloic - even if the proposed changes make it through the House, there is little chance that the Senate will act given the Democratic majority in the chamber. These bleak prospects beg the question - if there is little chance of actually making these changes stick, shouldn't the GOP House members be focused on legislation to create jobs and grow the economy - or is symbolism enough?

Comments

First, please remove the liberal bias from your question, since the government does NOT "create jobs and grow the economy".
Seen more clearly, we realize that their task is to slay "Fedzilla" by reversing the overspending and over-reaching that the Dem's have crammed through in recent years.
Repealing Obamacare is the best place to begin, not just because it is symbolic, but because it is a major job killer. It's purpose was to increase government control over our healthcare and lives, and the people have voted for LESS government control.
Even if they don't succeed completely on Jan 12, GOP will have drawn out those Dem's who oppose it too, in both the House and Senate. On paper, Dem's control the Senate, but I believe it has already effectively flipped to GOP control! Many Dems Senators (who seek re-election) are already breaking free of  Obama/Reid and their liberal lunacy agenda.

Pete Sessions - How can you "Act Quickly" if you do not even show up to get sworn in??

Rep. Sessions-

 

Not Sworn In????

 

Did you not hear the cry for priority #1 in the November Vote??

 

Do your job and show up!

 

What a waste of time and money, as you chase fund raising for yourself or your friend!

 

What a foolish act of disrespect!

 

You talk urgency, yet you do not act with urgency, your lack of responsibility and improper missing proper actions TO SHOW UP, I would expect from Obama, not one of the main conservative leaders of the Congress.

 

What arrogance, that is what we voted out in November.

 

Sorry you did not get the memo, or you just do not get it.

 

Your former employer AT&T/ Southwestern Bell would never have tolerated such an act, you were trained better.

 

Rep. Henserling and Rep. DeMint never would have pulled such a stunt.  If you are going to run with the big dogs, act like one.

 

Your arrogant and selfish behavior is not the new program that started on the first day of this new Congress and you were AWOL, and not excusable!

 

Stop embarrassing us as a party, as a state, and as a district.  I have voted for you every time, since I came back to Dallas in 1996.

 

You have enraged and rained on the excitement of our new day!

 

I wish I knew how to write a stronger complaint!
