Let’s take a look at what the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives did today.

  • An amendment by Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., to block the health care overhaul money was approved by a 239-187 vote. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • Republicans muscled through a proposal to block federal aid to Planned Parenthood by a 240-185 vote. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • Republicans won the reversal of a proposed Obama administration rule that seeks to crack down of for-profit colleges and vocational schools. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • A proposal by Texas Republican Ted Poe to strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its authority to issue regulations on global warming passed by a 249-177 vote. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • By a 244-181 tally Thursday, Republicans voted to block the Federal Communications Commission from enforcing new rules prohibiting broadband providers from interfering with Internet traffic on their networks. The new “network neutrality” rules are opposed by large Internet providers.   No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • Republicans then moved, on a 250-177 vote, to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from imposing limits on mercury pollution from cement factories. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.
  • Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., a strong foe of abortion, sponsored the amendment to block Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal money. No jobs created or discussed. Republicans sided with big business and lobbyists. Republicans acted against the taxpayers.

I’m seeing a pattern here.
