    Re: Senate advances jobs bill after collecting five GOP votes

    Can someone explain why the Left isn't furious that the Senate is passing MORE spending to create "jobs" when two thirds of the previous pork bill are still unspent?

    Is fiscal intelligence reserved only to real Americans? You know, the ones that care about their children's future and want to leave them a country that isn't bankrupt?

    Scott Brown helps Democrats advance jobs bill

    New senator helps Democrats advance jobs bill - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A modest job-creation bill advanced in the Senate on Monday as the chamber's newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending.

    Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week.

    Brown was widely hailed as a conservative hero after his surprise victory in Massachusetts last month gave Republicans enough seats to block most Democratic legislation.

    His election prompted President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats to call for increased bipartisanship, and an earlier version of the bill was written with Republican input.
    As I said before. Massachusetts doesn't elect conservatives.

    BOGUS tax breaks for small business.

    Gee, they only get the break if they hire someone. So if the employee isn't worth the tax break, there's no incentive to hire.

    Whereas if the flaming retarded sociast economic illiterates would just stop trying to micromanage the world because they're so much better than the rest of us and we just can't manage to suck in oxygen without them, and simply gave the economy the tax cuts it needs, across the board and broad, too, the economy might start moving some, with real jobs that are needed being created.

    And, oh, by the way, ALL Republicans in the Senate are RINO's. Real Republicans care about the Republic.

    You're right. Conservatives don't compromise.

    Not good enough.

    They don't have a job because they've been living their lives assuming their Super Nanny in Washington is going to take care of them Fore-ev-er.

    If they cared about their children, they wouldn't have been supporting socialists in the first place. Everyone knows that socialism is a disaster.

    I see no reason immature dolts should be catered to.

    so unemployed people who cannot find a job are immature socialists dolts who lost their jobs because of a nanny state huh? nice to know.

    Its easy to live in the land of hyperbole isnt it? don't let reality intrude on your little utopia. The only unemployed people out there are lazy welfare dependent government softened patsies who are not trying desperately to find work, gotcha.
