    PuhLease, your breaking my heart, The Republican House had passed numerous jobs bills that sit at Harry Reids feet go cry to him and that broken excuse of a White house infested with the PROGRESSIVE DISEASE. This poor excuse for a President has created the most business unfriendly environment possible unless you are a major donor or believe in a failing energy policy. Keep enjoying the minimum wage jobs these morons have created for the likes of you.
