Rehberg unveils major jobs program
Plan addresses stalled economy; for once, Rehberg delivers
I know I’ve often criticized Denny Rehberg as a total loafer who spends his days drinking and doing little else.
But now he’s delivered, and delivered big. With unemployment in America at record levels, Rehberg, long criticized for being a passive Congressman with little record of action or accomplishment, today announced a sweeping, major initiative for job creation and economic development.
The program is being widely hailed by liberal and conservative economists alike as a bold economic plan that will have an instant and forceful impact on the Montana economy, and will create more jobs than any plan currently being considered in Congress.
More to the point, Rehberg is finally working on what matters to Montanans. He seems to finally have realized that as a Congressman, you need to be immersed in whatever is the most pressing situation facing your constituents. This is a marked departure from where he has been before. Jon Tester will now be in the fight of his life and will really have to come up big with a economic proposal in order to compete with Rehberg’s. No more may we say that Dennis Rehberg is a do nothing Congressman.
