    Re: GOP blocks veterans jobs bill with budget vote

    Fabulous!!! It seems all my links above to the Library of Congress are temporary. Hey, why should the Government want you to link to anything so unimportant as, oh, Congressional records and proceedings?

    To read the 60 amendments to the Veterans Jobs Corps Act of 2012, do the following... Go to:

    Search Bill Summary & Status - 112th Congress - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    In the "Enter Search" box, type: Veterans Jobs Corps Act of 2012

    Click Search.

    On the following page, click "Amendments"

    You will find 60 amendments. All of them will say "See Congressional Record for text." Bummer, huh? Hey, NOTHING in the Government is easy! Keep working, Comrade...

    On amendment 1, click "S.AMDT.2780"

    Next page, after "TEXT OF AMENDMENT AS SUBMITTED:" click on "CR S6065" (that's the "Congressional Record" page 6,065 in case you were wondering. Those Senators talk a lot.)

    Next page, after "3 . TEXT OF AMENDMENTS" click on "(Senate - September 10, 2012)"

    The first thing amended to the "Veterans Job" bill by Senator Casey is a change to... wait for it... "Subpart A of part IV of subchapter A of chapter 1 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986."

    Job Bill. Right. And my cat can scuba dive. Enjoy!

    Senate Dems do not care. ObamaCare was passed without regard for the origination clause.

    So this is the first time the Senate, or the House for that matter, has moved to wave the Constitution in order to pass a bill? I think not Dana.

    It was constitutional to waive the budget point of order. Sessions protested it and the democrats did not get yet ANOTHER jobs bill through. This one to help veterans.

    Like their First Responder blockage for health care, republicans are proving they don't care about Americans who protect our nation.

    Dem's love people like you. Cannot afford the spending, don't do it the right way... claim the GOP hates Veterans, watch as you and others salivate to the ringing bell. It is sad. When are you gonna realize the game here? You think this bill was about Veterans? HA! Government is the reason there are no "Jobs". Or didn't the Great Depression teach you this? They wrote this for the political game. "Look we tried to solve this terrible issue! See we CARE!"

    WAKE UP PEOPLE. Government ain't the answer.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Isn' t blocking a veterans jobs bill a sign of being a Marxist or a communist or at the very least anti-military?

    Only if you're completely incapable or unwilling to actually investigate the reasons for the blockage and instead take the opposition's argument as gospel truth.

    I don't care if it's the first time or the thousanth time. ALL budget bills MUST originate in the House. Period. It's in the Constitution, or is the Constitution toilet paper to you?

    Perhaps you missed the winking emoticon at the end of my post indicating the wry humor in the post?

    How about we actually run the Government the way the rules say we're supposed to, Rosie? Would that be so difficult?
