Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) was on “Politics Nation” with Rev. Al Sharpton suggesting that Republican Congress members could benefit from a nice big dose of Ducolax:
“There’s no question that the Republicans, at least in the House and perhaps in the Senate as well, have contributed significantly to the legislative constipation that we are experiencing here in the United States. If we had a balanced approach instead of the sequestration, we would probably have a higher number than 160,000 jobs that were created.”
Kinda gives a whole new meaning to Republicans not giving a crap.
Those on the right love to tell us that the sequester hasn’t hurt anyone, see, because as the Bikini Graph showed: Jobs were added, and the unemployment rate dropped to 7.5%. But as Cleaver pointed out, that doesn’t account for future layoffs which, of course, could reverse the recent economic growth.
