    I'm completely speechless. My jaw is on the floor. For once, the Democrats are doing the right thing to help the economy. This bill is PROOF that even the Democrats understand that their typical policies hurt the economy.

    In this bill, they are proposing giving a tax cut of 100% on significant investments (equipment, etc.) and a 10% tax cut for hiring new employees.

    After having to endure the radical Communism/Marxism/Socialism of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, it is so refreshing to see the party hijacked by Communists actually respond like responsible, adult Democrats again. This is an example of a Democrat Party I could absolutely work and compromise with.

    To the Democrats who worked on this bill - I salute you.

    There must be a catch. Sorry, but I'm way beyond trusting this bunch.

    Form over substance....Don't fall for it.

    Who hires new employees just because they're going to get a little sop of a tax break?

    I agree with Ernie, but if this is straight up true, I'd applaud them for doing the CORRECT thing.

    Let's see if the stonewalling stops and if the House takes it up.

    Yeah that part is kinda Weak, but the 100% right off on significant investments (equipment, etc.) is huge, Huge for The Company I work for for sure.

    Nobody, of course. However, if they've been needing additional employees due to growth but have been holding off because of the anti-business rhetoric and policies of the Obama regime, a bill like this along with the defeat of Obama will probably get those organizations to proceed with the hires.
