    Irrelevant.

    Democratic support for the bill wavered this week, as several Democrats said they would vote for moving the bill forward, but against the bill itself.


    The Dems did not support this bill.

    Ummm, 50 Democrats voted for it. The bill would have passed in the Senate if not for the Republicans blocking it with a filibuster.

    Or the billions of dollars we spent bombing/liberating the following:
    Afghanistan 2001 - Present
    Libya 2011 - Present
    Iraq 2003 - Present
    Palestine 2010
    Yemen 2009 - Present
    Somolia 2010 - Present

    I am sure there are a few unknowns on this list as well.

    Not to mention we have troops worldwide. Pull them back. Let them rest. Let's stop warmongering.

    Does it matter? Two Democrats voted with Republicans, so those two get shared credit for doing the right thing.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Of course it matters since had Republicans not initiated the filibuster, it would have passed in the Senate. There is absolutely no rational way you blame Democrats for Obama's jobs bill to die in the Senate.

    Republicans are now on record for blocking it.

    You should confuse reality with the liberals fairy tales. What you wrote is dead on accurate. Had the actual bill been up for a vote, BO and Reid's POS bill would not have received 48 votes in favor.

    it is readily apparent you do not have a clue how the senate functions.

    So what, I think they planned to be on record all along. Apparently only you thinks this is something noteworthy.

    BO finally got a bipartisan vote ...... Republicans and democrats came to together and gave a thumbs down to BO's plan. Way to go BO.
