    Do you even know what the Obama Jobs Plan is and how it will help create jobs? Looks to me like anything Obama says or does you buy regardless of the end results? We are down a net 2.6 million jobs since he took office and since Stimulus One. Now you have no problem spending another half trillion dollars. When does the liberal madness end?

    So what is your problem with it? Please be as specific as possible seeing as you think you know all about and I assume have reviewed all 155 pages.

    It funds state responsibility jobs for one thing, once the federal funding runs out the states have to pick up the cost or we are back to where we started. I don't believe the Federal Taxpayers in TX should be funding police, fire, and teachers in some other state or community. Do you?

    THAT'S your response...'I know I am but what are you'??? I'm not the one espousing the glorious benefits of the American Jobs Act.

    Try again.

    Oh so you haven't read it and just have party line ideological problems with it.

    I did and can confirm what Conservative states is in the bill (subtitle B and C). Have you read the bill? If so can you refute please quote subtitle and section.

    Further from the WH:
    •Preventing up to 280,000 teacher layoffs,while keeping cops and firefighters on the job.
    Another questionable 'job creator':
    "Expanding access to high-speed wireless as part of a plan for freeing up the nation’s spectrum" again from WH.

    American Jobs Bill?

    From ABC News, today:
    With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

    Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department's $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.
