Could it be Blue?
Oh my, another Issa hearing. It will go nowhere just like all his other hearings.
Huff, Puff, Cave, Cry. Repeat as necessary.
The US Congress has abdicated responsibility.
THEY DID/DO NOTHING but increase their wealth through
greed and lying as their Moslem leader destroyed/s
Quite frankly, I think we all know the jobs report was a fraud by not including California. I’d rather Issa spend his energies on Benghazi failures.
The administration was either incompetent or lying. In my opinion, they are both and America needs answers.
Not the same thing. The unemployment claims left out CA. The jobless numbers are a household poll.
The Congress (lower house can do nothing by itself, it has no police force nor does it have any executive power. It's up to the people to make a change across the board on election day. In our form of system it requires all of the branches to follow the law and their responsibilities. When that doesn't happen this is what you get.
They did name the state - Calif.
Statement from Issa’s spokesman:
“While Chairman Issa, in response to a question asked yesterday, did state that he believes there are legitimate questions about the Department of Labors method for calculating unemployment, the Oversight Committee has not announced or decided to hold hearings on the September unemployment report. Chairman Issa specifically pointed to the frequent revisions that the Department of Labor often makes to its own numbers in questioning whether more can be done to ensure that they accurately reflect the state of our nations job market. At no point did he say he has made plans to convene a hearing on this subject.”
Unless someone leaks an internal BLS memo or email about some kind of abnormalities or trickery in the recent employment reports, this would be a waste of valuable time.
“””””You do know how our system of government works right?”””
Yes, I do. The Republicans will huff, puff, cry, cave, as always.
Doesn’t sound like it?
Issa has both the energy and wherewithal to investigate what bears investigating. He is more than capable of patting his head and rubbing his belly at the same time.
His Benghazi hearings, his potential September jobs report investigation, plus the Priebus letter to Eric the Red Holder demanding an investigation on Obama's gigantic fund-raising fraud.....all are aimed at Obama's hide, and a multiplicity of investigations being called for almost weekly represent the perfect embodiment of "death by a thousand cuts".....and should be applauded.
The GOP congresscritters ARE doing something.....and the timing and spacing is exquisite.
They didn’t do anything when they had control, they won’t do anything now.
Charlie Brown, Lucy, football.
I hope that if Obama quotes this report in the next presidential debate that Romney will be bold and brings out the point that it was a fruadulant report excluding a “ large state”!!!
Word is, it’s California. It’s a VERY significant state, and the lie of omission that the 0bama admin pulled with this is corrupt beyond comprehension.
Paul Ryan should have used this fact that they left out California in last night’s debate, maybe Romney will use it next week.
