    You mean because tax cuts to working families actually stimulate the economy as opposed to the tax cuts for the rich, that don't?

    You do know there are only 53 Democrats in the Senate, right? Well, actually, 50 Dems, 2 DINOs and 1 Independend (Joe Lieberman) whom I wish would just go away.

    Of course I know that, that is why I was laughing at BO's failure to get his entire party to support even having a vote on Porkulus II.

    Let me make a prediction going forward concering the President's Jobs plan. Here's what I believe will happen, keep in mind that the President has said to both parties in the House and the Senate..."if you have ideas you think will make my proposals better, I'm willing to listen..."

    It started with Senator Reid when he essentially scrapped the "Buffle Rule" and suggested the "Millionaire Surtax (@ 5%)". Since the Buffet Rule would only apply to millionaire hedge fund managers, it made sense to shift the income level from $200K to $1M. Of course, we know how the Senate vote went. But still, I ask you, Republicans and DINOs alike, "if millionaire corporations aren't the backbone of our economy, if in fact, it is the small business owners who hire the most people, why would you vote against legislation that shifts that tax burden from small businessmen (income level from $200K-$1M) to those who make +$1M?"

    The President's Jobs plan will now go to the House[/URL] where it will be sliced and diced and voted on in smaller pieces. Again, I remind you that the President has said he doesn't have a problem with this as long as such bills meet his approval. (You'll know if they don't should should legislation meet with the veto pen.) With each passage of the smaller piece of legislation that would still accomplish what the President wants, just presented in smaller segments, Republicans will first attempt to water down his proposals by placing things they know won't stand a chance of passing in their bills, i.e., repeal of the PPACA (ObamaCare) and Dodd-Frank. Then with each bill that passes, Republicans will then attempt to take credit for job creation.

    Mark my words on this, ladies and gentlemen. Instead of simply doing what the country needs them to do which is to focus on job creation, watch as Republicans continue to play party politics placing party ahead of country even in the midst of a vast majority of the country in unified outcry for jobs!

    Senator's Nelson and Tester are DINOs. Look at their records, especially that of Nelson who has voted more times with Republicans than he has his own party. He especially may as well just change his party association.

    They certainly didn't come to the President's side on this one now, did they? But our two DINOs certainly went to bat for the other side, moreso to protect their seats in the Senate than to do what's right for the nation. Of course, it wouldn't have helped whether Reid had Nelson, Tester, Snowe and Collins' votes. He still would have been 6 votes short from passing the President's Jobs bill regardless. But because they didn't, I can still call Senate Republicans "the Party of 'NO'" and obstructionist and be justified.

    It's becoming increasingly clear that the Republicans would be quite happy to see a double-dip recession if it means beating Obama in '12.
    This implies that you actually believe the propaganda of the recovery summer? I would be delighted with a double dip recession if we were not already in an unheralded great depression. The one term Marxist cannot be gone soon enough. He is damaging the nation intentionally.

    EDIT to my post #274: (You'll know if their modified legislation should meet with the Pesident's veto pen.) That's what happens when you type too fast.

    Why do you think this Job's bill is going to do the job when the last one failed miserably? Obama had overwhelming numbers his first two years, much more than Bush ever had during his term yet Bush gets blame and Obama never is held accountable for the poor results. Obama even had a filibuster proof Congress part of his first two years something Obama supporters forget.

    As for the job's bill please tell me after the funding runs out for state jobs, teachers, fire fighters, and police where does the money come from to keep paying these workers? Liberals always buy what Obama tells them yet with 4.2 trillion added to the debt in 3 years we have a net job loss of 2.6 million. Keep buying the rhetoric, liberals. Amazing what the cost of brainwashing gets these days.
