10.12.11 Bee-otch of the Day: senate Republicans

Name: senate Republicans
Age: varies
Occupation: Republican senators
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: saying "fuck you" to the 99%

OK. Once again, I must ask, are you happy that you voted Republican in 2012?

I, for one, can't be blamed on this one.

Just after Labor Day, President Obama announced his job creation bill that would help cure the nation's 9.1% unemployment rate. However, even with a Democratic lead, senate Republicans shot down the almost-half-a-trillion-dollar bill, and some Democrats even crossed party lines, including senate majority leader Harry Reid. Overall, the bill's vote total was 51-49; it needed 60 votes to stay alive.

The bill would have been a win-win for both the wealthy and workers; it would have meant some lower taxes for the rich and more Americans would be given jobs. However, the Republicans basically shot the bill down to once again blame this country's mounting problems on the president. With the 2012 elections only being a little bit less than 13 months away, the Republicans are trying to re-enter the White House with no plans to get the country out of the red. Instead, they want to make rich people richer while all of us end up working minimum wage jobs.

It only shows how out-of-touch ALL Republicans are. We have people protesting everywhere as part of the #occupy movement and they could care less about them. Hell, we have Uncle Tom himself, Herman Cain telling the media that if you can't get a job, it's your fault. Like everybody can own a pizza parlor.

I can't wait until next year. Obama's going to be a two termer. Wait and see. Americans are more fed up with the Tea Party assholes than with the president. It's time to tax the wealthy and if everybody votes Democrat next election, maybe we'll see jobs come back. The party's over for corporate America. Let's get back to work and actually be able to pay our bills.

Remember, the Revolution's just beginning.
