    http://www.scottbrown.senate.gov/pu...tt-brown-s-small-business-veterans-jobs-bills <---republican jobs bill passed by senate, signed by obama

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:h.r.2433: <---republican veteran's jobs bill blocked by the democrat senate.


    Just being fair and balanced, this "jobs" bill was actually a defecit spending bill which is why reps were against it ;)

    EDIT: sorry my 2nd link was broken, that should work now.

    Seems that the "fiscal cliff" involves deficit spending on big fat defense contracts.

    Democrats are famous for doing this. They attach a veteran's benefit bill to something truly egregious so they can say the GOP voted against the veterans. They attacked John McCain on this very issue.

    Hey thats not my idea ;). You know I'm the guy who said "we should stop giving aid to foreign countries and stop spending money stationing our troops in places like europe where they aren't needed to cut the defecit"

    Your response and my response back doesn't change the fact that the republicans have introduced and passed one veterans bill which the dems/president went along with that was introduced by Scott Brown, that the senate has blocked a veterans jobs bill from the republican house, and that this bill you linked was voted against by republicans because their constitutants do not want another stimulus paid for with borrowed money.
