    Durbin says democrats dont currently have the votes for Obama jobs bill

    Durbin says Democrats don

    LMAO .... I guess this will stop BO from spewing "Pass the bill. Pass the bill". He can't even convince the liberals tools in the senate to vote on it, and they control the senate. Apparently many liberal senators acknowledge BO's jobs bill is nothing more than a campaign motivated tax hike on the very people that may create jobs. Can anyone explain how taking money from employers will create a better employment environment?

    The American Jobs Act contains no tax hikes, genius. In fact it contains the opposite. Why don't you do some research before you start bull****tin'

    Dude, the "jobs" bill and the tax bill are one package. Straight from the Chosen One's website....

    ----------------------


    Help Get America Working Again


    President Obama's American Jobs Act will create jobs using ideas that have been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. Congress should pass right away to get the economy moving now. The plan would:
    •Create incentives for small businesses to hire and grow from now into 2012.
    •Make investments that would prevent layoffs of as many as 280,000 teachers, provide opportunities for long-term unemployed veterans, and put Americans to work rebuilding roads, railways, bridges, and schools in need of repair.
    •Implement the most sweeping reforms to the unemployment insurance system in 40 years to help those without jobs transition to the workplace.
    •Expand the payroll tax cut, cutting workers payroll taxes in half next year. This provision will provide a tax cut of $1,500 to the typical family.
    Be fully paid for as part of the President's long-term deficit reduction plan.


    ------------------------------


    BO can't propose $450billion in crony capitalism spending without paying for it. His tax proposal is DOA, which makes his "jobs" bill DOA....or should we call it "Failed Porkulus II"? You do know the senate hasn't done anything with "Failed Porkulus II", don't you?

    enate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said, at the moment, Democrats in Congress don’t have the votes to pass President Obama’s jobs bill, but Durbin added that that situation would change.

    He said they dont have the votes now...but that would change....I didnt read anything where it said durbin or democrats said the bill was a campaign ploy

    The overall "plan" is not the same as the Jobs Act/bill itself.

    1) Uhh, no. The tax increases are not part of the Jobs Act itself.
    2) The tax increases are not set to be implemented immediately, but in the future. He is not talking about significantly raising taxes during this weak recovery. You DO realize that the bill itself implements substantial payroll tax cuts on both the employer and employee side?
