Republican U.S. House Speaker in-waiting John Boehner and Wisconsin Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald share something awful in common: neither is putting job creation first and instead both are already looking at 2012 election-year strategy.
Despite the fact that two million Americans are about to run out of extended unemployment benefits next month, Boehner has admitted to two #1 priorities: repealing health care and trying to make sure President Obama is not re-elected in 2012. Meanwhile, the elder of the Brothers Fitzgerald, Scott, has admitted that the 21st Century Poll Tax (aka Voter ID) will be ‘first and foremost on his priority list.’
Apparently long lines at the polls concern Republicans more than the long lines at the unemployment office.
Meet the majority.
