Boehner: ‘where are the jobs?’

In today’s “Weekly Republican Address,” House Republican Leader John Boehner asks, “Where are the jobs?”

It’s a good question. After all, to justify spending trillions of borrowed money on President Obama’s so-called stimulus, energy and health care bills, Obama and the Democrats promised the unprecedented spending would create jobs:

The president and Democrats in Congress claim this spending binge is necessary to put Americans back to work. They promised unemployment would not rise above 8 percent if their trillion-dollar stimulus was passed.

But our nation has lost nearly three million jobs this year. Unemployment has soared above 9 percent. And now the president admits that unemployment will soon reach double digits.

After all of this spending, after all of this borrowing from China, the Middle East, our children and our grandchildren, where are the jobs?”Where are the jobs?”

Here’s another question. Why do Congressional Democrats continue to pursue economic, health care, energy, and  environmental policies that will destroy more American jobs and drive future generations into deeper debt?
