    McConnell and Reid both knew that Dems wouldn't vote for the bill as proposed by Obama. Reid and the rest of the Dems wanted a "NO" vote from the Republicans so they could use it during the campaign.
    First off, the article you referenced was published before the Senate finally did vote on the President's Job plan.

    Second, while I'm sure Sen. Reid was very much aware that he'd still be a few votes shy of getting the bill passed even with help from his party, the fact that no Republicans voted for it does more to illustrate further obstructionism by Senate Republicans than a failing of Senate Democrats to unify for a party-line vote. Again, of the 52 Senate Democrats only 2 voted against the President's Jobs Plan...TWO!

    And finally, Senate Reid changed his vote at the last minute just so that he, as Senate Majority Leader, could bring the issue back up against if he wanted to. Hardly a scathing disapproval by himself or his party affiliates, but you keep telling yourself that it was.

    Why would anyone support this President who demonizes individual wealth creation, corporations, and anyone that has benefited from hard work and risk taking? Why do you buy what this President tells you when he hasn't been truthful on any of his policies? This country wasn't built on the principles that Obama is implementing and the results are quite telling. Why are you ignoring the Obama results and supporting more of the same.

    You must be delusional if you think this bill would have passed a straight up majority vote. It never had a snowball's chance in hell of passing the Senate. Two Dem Senators voted against allowing it to be voted on and two more said they would vote against it if it was ever brought to a vote.

    First off, the article you referenced was published before the Senate finally did vote on the President's Job plan.
    No kidding............ McConnell tried to get Reid to bring a straight up majority vote on the bill, but Reid refused for two reasons:

    1. He knew he didn't have 50 votes for it.
    2. He wanted a campaign issue.

    They didn't vote on the bill, they voted on cloture.

    Second, while I'm sure Sen. Reid was very much aware that he'd still be a few votes shy of getting the bill passed even with help from his party, the fact that no Republicans voted for it does more to illustrate further obstructionism by Senate Republicans than a failing of Senate Democrats to unify for a party-line vote. Again, of the 52 Senate Democrats only 2 voted against the President's Jobs Plan...TWO!
    And like I said, two more publicly stated they would vote against it if it came up for a vote, but were willing to have it debated. If he had 50 Dems that would vote for it, he could have had his vote and passed the bill. He didn't.

    Does it matter where the score card came from? Refute the data in that score card? What information there is false?

    She doesn't care if the data is correct or not, she simply wants it to be hidden from view and the source of it ridiculed.

    It is rather frustrating. I wish someone could explain to me what it is about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty where results never matter but the source for those results does? The results listed are referenced and thus verifiable. Over 4.2 trillion added to the debt and over 2 million jobs lost. That somehow is ignored by liberals.
