Mejdai: Stop Talk, Hubby Needs Job

Mejdai: Grrrr! Stop the blather. My husband needs a job now. I don’t care about 10 year employment statistics or that this bill can’t pass. I don’t care about Obama (I am not a fan, by the way) doing this just so he can blame republicans. I don’t care about tea party republicans sticking to their guns and slowly dismantling government. I feel like nobody is actually hearing those of us who are actually, not just theoretically, suffering from this stupid recession. Screw republicans, screw democrats, especially screw the record-profit-earning-no-job-creating corporations that run this country. I don’t care about theory, just try something IMMEDIATELY even if it was proposed by someone who proposed something that didn’t work last time. What good are long term plans if everything falls apart irrecoverably in the short term? (AP photo, of President Obama making his jobs proposal Thursday)

Question: Do you think the reaction of the Idaho congressional delegation -- all of whom opposed President Obama's plans to spur job growth -- is a comfort to Mejdai?
