Because the Congress never passed that jobs bill. Remember that? The one we were supposed to get if we voted the GOP into power? Yeah. I haven’t forgotten yet. All I want is a (good) jobs bill. I’ll even accept an acceptable jobs bill. Is that too much? Can abortion debate, SOPA, PIPA, NDAA, and Keystone XL, wait until then? How come you have time for all this other cool shit, but there’s no time to draft a working jobs bill? How come y’all can have a pro forma meeting, but you can’t discuss a jobs bill there so that you can work on it when the full Congress gets back to work? I … I don’t even know.
Priorities. You are doing them wrong.
