A Republican congressman has accidentally revealed what their TRUE agenda is. Hint: it ain't creating jobs or doing anything to help the economy so long as Obama is president.
The real issue is not the Republicans’ willingness to work with the president to create jobs, because they have no intentions of compromising or working with the president. Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) revealed the true Republican agenda when he said, “If we find a window, we can maybe do some things together. Beyond that, I will tell you that it’s going to be important just to hang on and get a new president and a new configuration in Congress.” King’s comment reveals there is nothing Republicans will do to help create jobs. It is not shocking that Republicans are going to wait and hope for a Republican president and majority in both houses of Congress because they have done nothing since President Obama was inaugurated except obstruct meaningful legislation to improve the economy or jobs. Indeed, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said since 2009 that the Republican’s goal was making sure President Obama only served one term. Now King says they are just going to hang on until 2013 before making any moves to create jobs.
