Evan Bayh – Congress has not created one new job

Although I do not think it is the job of the federal government or Congress to create jobs, I do think it is their job to promote job growth. There is a difference between promote and provide. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) is certain Congress has not created one job in six months, and he may do better in the private sector.

Below is a clip from the CBS News interview this morning with Maggie Rodriguez. Are the Congress-critters issued some sort of truth pill when departing via the emergency exit? From the interview

Bayh did admit that he has no future plans. “I would tell you, but I don’t know. I’m going to — what we call in Indiana, in basketball — I’m going play until the final second ticks off the clock, and then think about what’s next.

“But if I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months. If I could help educate our children at an institution for higher learning, that would be a noble thing. If I could help a charity, cure a disease or do something else worthwhile for society — that’s what has motivated my life and that’s what I think Congress needs to focus on, things that will help the American people meet the challenges they face in real ways in their daily lives. That’s what I want to do with my life. And if you’ll invite me back on your show in 11 months, I’ll be able to tell you!”

    Bayh Humbug !….If you hate congress, you hate the people because Congress  is the one branch of government that is supposed to represent the will of the people. Bayh Humbug poses himself like some aloof moderate above the frey of ideologogies. Truth is when it came time to vote, Bayh marched in goose step with the dear leaders of his party  showing nothing but cowardly contempt for the will of the people. He's a faker and a fraud. His votes never matched the promises and image he made when speaking to a media camera. He was always against Obamacare on shows like Gretta , but never opposed Obamacare  on the Senate floor when it really counted.
