Shame on You, John Boehner! Boehner and the GOP's Concerns This Christmas

"We oppose the Senate bill because doing the two-month extension instead of a full year extension causes uncertaint­y for job creators," says John Boehner, Speaker of the House, quoted in this article at the Huffington Post about the payroll tax cuts.

"Uncertainty for job creators":  Let me repeat that.  I don't know about you, but I'm really tired of hearing this "job creator" nonsense.  Boehner's concerned about uncertainty for his rich "job creator" friends, who, as far as I can tell, have not bothered to create many jobs so far.

Why isn't Boehner concerned about the uncertainty of the unemployed?  They are concerned about keeping the heat on over the winter if unemployment insurance benefits get cut off come the cold of January 1st.  Should they take back the presents for the kids and use the money to pay their heating bills?  

Why isn't Boehner concerned about the uncertainty for the middle class and working poor?  Those people are concerned about having a few more bucks to make it through the worst economy in 80 years.  Perhaps they too will need to scale down to avoid bills come January that they no longer can pay. 

But do Boehner and the rest of the Republicans care about the 7 million people getting unemployme­nt benefits (which affects about 12 million people if you count the family members of the unemployed)..... or do they care about the working mi­ddle income and poor families having an extra 100 or 150 bucks a month to pay a few bills? Nope!  Boehner is concerned about the "uncertainty" of his rich friend NO job creators.

Shame on Boehner and all of these Republicans.

Someone explain to me why there is one.... even one... middle or working income person who supports (or believes) these characters­?  

Update Wednesday, December 21, 2011:

Even the Wall Street Journal is sick of Boehner and the Republicans, but for another reason:  They are afraid that the American people will react so strongly against the Republicans that they will guarantee Obama's reelection, something that the Wall Street Journal does not want.  The article discussing this at the Huffington Post is HERE.

And here's another "Shame on You Boehner"  from commenter Ariando at Huffington Post :
McConnell and Boehner should be impeached for breaking their oath's of office - When you list your highest (and only) priority as working against a duly elected President, you have declared that you are not interested in performing the duties of your office. Shame on you.:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constituti­on of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservatio­n or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
