'In God We Trust' Instead of Jobs

by Thom Hartmann posted Nov 1 2011 2:45PM
Republicans are continuing to ignore the jobs crisis.  There are no votes on the schedule in the House of Representatives to pass any portion of President Obama’s American Jobs Act – or any other legislation to put Americans back to work.  Instead – House leadership is demanding a vote to ensure that “In God We Trust” remains the official national motto.  Even though nobody is trying to change the national motto – Republicans think it’s vitally important to pass legislation to uphold it today. 

The bill’s sponsor – Republican Randy Forbes from Virginia defended his legislation saying it, “sends a message that 'In God We Trust' is not only written in the halls of our federal buildings, but it is a bedrock upon which our nation is built.” Putting aside the constitutional violations of such legislation – this bill - just like the anti-abortion legislation passed the week before – and the defunding NPR legislation passed earlier in the year – will not create a single job. 

Not one job.  Republicans have controlled the House since January, so, Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor, where are the jobs?!
