Ron Johnson has shown to be a somewhat lazy Senator, but compared to Herb Kohl, who the Siren thinks has been secretly dead for a number years...it's hard to bitch too much.
Anyway, HRH has finally authored and sponsored a bill! Ta da!
After 8 months in office, Johnson finally puts some pasty skin in the game. What pray tell is his first decree of import?
S.1438 - Regulation Moritorium and Jobs Preservation Act of 2011.
Oooooh. Jobs, that sounds good! Maybe waiting all this time has been worth it. What jobs will it preserve Ron?
Well, in reading the bill, the Siren discovered that the word "jobs" or "job" doesn't actually appear in the text except for the title...that's weird. What will it do then?
"To provide that no agency may take any significant regulatory action until the unemployment rate is equal to or less than 7.7 percent."Hmmmm. So there can be no significant regulations imposed until the unemployment reaches 7.7% or below because that will "preserve" jobs? That's the dumbest and most blatant corporate pandering the Siren has seen in at least 2 or 3 days from these jerks.
Hey Ron, we have a suggestion for your next bill. How about the "Corporations Can Pollute the Air and Water While Poisoning their Employees and Jobs Preservation Act".
