    So for you all bills must be approved down party lines. Care to explain why two dems voted it down. If it was a good bill, some repubs would most likely vote for it.
    You are damn right Reid changed the bill. The lame stream media is quiet about this glaring bitchslap of BO.......they removed the tax increase on folks making 250k and put in the millionaire tax. Apparently moonbat chuckie schumer screamed foul on taxing folks that make less than a million clams a year. So even though the lib's have rejected BO's "let's tax the millionaires and billionaires making $250k per year"', don't expect BO to stop claiming he wants to increase the taxes on those people.

    The vote was to overcome the filibuster, not a vote to pass the bill. Did you read the article?

When the hell are people going to realize that our 2 major parties don't give a damn about anything except their own party? Patriots, my ass. That applies to Democrats and Republicans both.
    I'm not going to argue against that but the Republicans were indeed voted in to block bills like this.

    No kidding. I was wondering about this American Small Bus Chamber of Commerce. Turns out this Mickey mouse fan club just popped up in September. Apparently this is some political arm of the equally small and unknown Natl Association of Small Business Contractors. We should expect to see a lot of this type of bs for the next year. Team BO will create companies and organizations that sound legit to make glowing endorsements of the Chosen One's failed policies.


    EDIT: it gets better. It turns out this ASBCC is also related to the liberal hacks in the Womens Chamber of Commerce.

    In their own words:

    "It is time for Congress to step up strongly in support of Main Street businesses through the smart and direct actions of The American Jobs Act of 2011. This act combines short-run stimulus that will spur business growth and hiring with long-term measures that will reduce the deficit," says Margot Dorfman, CEO of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. "We can't afford more delays when so many families are hurting and small businesses struggling to stay afloat," continues Dorfman. "The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce calls upon Congress to act now to pass this legislation and support America's return to economic stability and growth."

    When your money is taken away from you by an out-of-control government, and spent in ways you would not choose to spend it, on things that do not benefit you, then Obama's attitude is very different.

It's pretty simple actually.

    Could be, but then isn't it still the responsibility of the government official who was bribed to be held accountable for the damage and loss of property and life? You don't get it though - I don't care who's responsible politically... if they did wrong they should be strung up. The construction company, the unions that back the construction company, the person making the bribe, the government official(s) receiving the bribe, the inspectors who looked the other way after the bridge was finished.


    But back to the point - if it's a new bridge the people want, the people have to pay for it. They should also make sure that those involved are investigated and if any wrong doing was actually done, that those people are held accountable.
    I don't disagree - he should be strung up.

    I thought you wanted to lower taxes, not raise them??

Dingy allowed the senators to vote on considering the bill, knowing full well it wouldn't pass the 60 vote mark, so that the lib's could claim they want to help create jobs. Had the actual bill been voted on, the dem's would not have received even 48 votes in it's favor.
    Uh oh, me thinks SY got his azz handed to him. Good one CG.

    This bill doesn't have a damn thing to do with building roads. It's about raising taxes.

    There are fewer shovel ready jobs in this bill than there were in Stealfromus I and there weren't any in that one.
