    Updated List of Bills The Republicans Have Blocked

    "Here’s just a short list of some of the bills that Republicans have blocked, or attempted to block, since Obama became President:

    Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas- A bill that would have eliminated a tax break that companies get when they ship jobs overseas. Republicans blocked this, allowing companies to keep the tax break they receive when they ship jobs to other countries.

    Political Ad disclosure bill- Would have required all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves. Republicans blocked this, not once but twice.

    Subpoena Power for the Committee investigating the BP Oil Spill – Give subpoena power to the independent committee responsible for investigating BP’s roll in the oil spill. Republicans attempted to block this.

    The Small Business Jobs Act - would give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to loan to small businesses. Republicans blocked this, then attempted to block it a second time and failed.

    The DREAM Act- Gives immigrant youth who were brought here as children a path to citizenship by earning a college degree or serving the military for 2 years. Republicans blocked this.


    Here are just a few of the other blocked provisions, courtesy of Mother Jones.

    No permanent military bases in Afghanistan.

    Report identifying hybrid or electric propulsion systems and other fuel-saving technologies for incorporation into tactical motor vehicles.

    Protection of child custody arrangements for parents who are members of the Armed Forces deployed in support of a contingency operation.

    Improvements to Department of Defense domestic violence programs.

    Department of Defense recognition of spouses of members of the Armed Forces.

    Department of Defense recognition of children of members of the Armed Forces.

    Enhancements to the Troops-to-Teachers Program.

    Fiscal year 2011 increase in military basic pay.

    Improving aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.

    Comprehensive policy on neurocognitive assessment by the military health care system.

    Authority to make excess nonlethal supplies available for domestic emergency assistance.

    And those were just some of the progressive provisions. On the conservative side, there are these, and more:

    Looks to me like more reasons to vote for the GOP in 2012 which is becoming more apparent. Obama's 2.6 million net job loss and his 4.2 trillion added to the debt doesn't foster a lot of electoral support except for the brainwashed. Your vision of a huge central govt. violates the vision of our Founders and just gives someone like you something else to complain about.

    For the public record then, you think:

    We should continue to provide a tax break to companies when they ship jobs overseas?

    We should not require all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves?

    We should not increase the military basic pay?

    We should not improve aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.

    We should not give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to loan to small businesses?

    We should not make excess nonlethal supplies available for domestic emergency assistance?

    Making my kid pay ten years from now so Obama can bail out his political cronies in public employee unions for one year is not recovery.

    You don't have any understanding of why these bills were blocked. For example, the first one"
    The bill, argued the Chamber, would "significantly curtail [tax] deferral [of earnings], reversing longstanding tax policy and subjecting American worldwide companies to immediate double taxation on the earnings of their foreign subsidiaries. Limiting deferral would hinder the global competitiveness of these American companies, impede U.S. economic growth, and ultimately result in the loss of jobs - both at the companies directly impacted and companies in their supply chains."

    It is very easy to find information on both sides of the issue and draw an intelligent conclusion. You have done nothing of the sort here.

    I have looked at both sides. I do not thinking outsourcing US jobs, benefits the middle class. The Chamber of Commerce promotes outsourcing of US jobs:

    "The Chamber, which represents businesses in the United States, has aggressively battled the effort to reduce outsourcing."

    This legislation would have eliminated the tax break only for companies that outsource US jobs and then turn around and import the products back to the US.

    It is a very clear issue, those that agree with providing a tax break for companies that outsource jobs overseas should vote for the GOP.

    I think taxes on business in this country are too high and the answer is to allow them to be competitive in the world markets and you won't have to worry about them taking jobs overseas.

    Everything you have posted has another side which you continue to ignore. Give both sides of the issue and why those bills are being held up then we can have a discussion.

    You're misunderstanding the context of this statement in the article. The point is that "The Chamber" that has consistently tried to reduce outsourcing still feels that the bill presented is not a proper solution, and that it will in fact interfere with the American companies competing in the World Market. Not all products in our stores are produced by American companies. The reality is that if the average American has the choice of purchasing an American made item or a less expensive yet equally as valuable foreign made item, they are going to choose the one that is less expensive in most cases. This creates a bad situation for our private sector corporations which in turn makes it harder for Americans to find jobs and increases our cost of living. If you then increase the operation costs of these companies even further, you will only make the situation worse.

    I am asking you for your opinion on each of these bills:

    We should continue to provide a tax break to companies when they ship jobs overseas?

    We should not require all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves?

    We should not increase the military basic pay?

    We should not improve aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.

    We should not make excess nonlethal supplies available for domestic emergency assistance?
