Wrong hat

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor delivers more mush for the rubes:

...This fall the Republican Party will pursue a legislative agenda that boosts economic growth through reducing the regulatory and tax burden.
Gee Eric, too bad you didn’t start pushing that agenda last fall.  Why, we might even be out of the deprecession by now!
We will make sure...
("We will make sure...” Pretty confident, aren’t-cha?  Does that include the "we only control one-half of one-third of the government” gang?)
...that Washington policies are less restrictive to businesses small and large.
"Less restrictive,” the man says.  Well, I guess that being strangled with a noose beats being garotted with a wire, but personally I was hoping for more of a "dynamiting barriers” approach...
Our goals...
(That’s better. You don’t have to actually achieve "goals.”)
...include repealing the "3 percent withholding rule”...
The item that’s atop everyone’s list, I’m sure.

(Why, every morning, right after I pour my first coffee, I think: "If I were in charge, what one thing could I do that would get the economy off stall and allay everyone’s worries about the future?  I know:  I’d repeal the 3 percent withholding rule!  That’ll show ’em!  Just watch!  (Now, wotthehel is the ‘3 percent withholding rule’, anyway?)...”

(Pssst... Hey Eric.  Which of your campaign contributors asked for that one?   No, no... it’s O.K., man...)
...which serves as an effective tax increase on those who do business with the government...
Y’know, just a thought, but while you’re at it maybe you could try making it less expensive to do business- period.  Just a thought!
...and overturning the EPA’s proposed regulations that inhibit jobs in areas as varied as cement and farm dust.
The House has the power to bring those regulations to a halt instantly: Defund ’em.  But do you guys have the nerve?  Hah!
We plan...
And we know all about "the best-laid plans...” prevent the NLRB from inhibiting where a business chooses to create jobs.
Answer:  Defund them, too.  (But what am I thinking!)
...We were elected to change the way Washington does business and spends money.
"...and so far, we haven’t delivered squat.  But hope (and promises) spring eternal:  ‘This Time For Sure!  Presto!’”
