House Speaker John Boehner is focused like a laser on jobs:
STEPHANOPOULOS: You know, we asked-- our viewers for questions for you. And so many came in on the same exact theme. Where are the jobs? What is this Congress doing for jobs?

BOEHNER: Well, that's interesting, George. Because it really is our number one priority.

And as if to prove the speaker's point, yesterday House Republicans announced they would vote next week on this crucial job creating measure:
The House will vote next week on a bill banning abortions across the country after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Oh wait. That's not a job creation measure. That's just another right-wing obsession, right up there with repealing Obamacare, ending Medicare as we know it, and getting to the bottom of Benghazi talking points.

But to be fair to Speaker Boehner, the fact that House Republicans don't do much of anything these days except go on vacation in between votes on conservative wet dreams doesn't mean jobs aren't his top priority. It just means he's got a strange way of showing it.
