    This one should have died, it was a bad bill. It had no spending cap...............so I'm glad it died, they did the right thing. :)

    Another example of smoke & mirrors show. lacking any substance or fidelity to their Constitutional duty. They should all be ramrodded out of Congress if not tarred & feathered.

    we'll just count that against the 15 job related bills PASSED by a BIPARTISAN vote in the House, which are now sitting gathering dust on Reid's desk, shall we?

    Sure, if by 'bi-partisan' you mean a couple of Dems voted for the bills, and by 'jobs-related bills' you mean more tax cuts for the rich and more attempts to deregulate. Though, outside of the right-wing echo chamber, those aren't actually jobs bills.

    Republicans passed something they called "the JOBS act" LOL it was an attempt to grab the federal money allocated for extended unemployment benefits to spend on other things, it also would have made people without a diploma or GED ineligible for benefits at all. JOBS bill my ass.
