    House GOP Claims Support For Payroll Tax Cut Compromise | Fox News

    First, I want to say it's a god damn shame that the GOP has to FORCE the Democrats to create this pipeline that will create tens of thousand high paying direct American jobs and thousand other support jobs! Not to mention it will increase oil production and lower oil prices. Dimocrats "claim" they want to create jobs, this is an SIMPLE way to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs. Liberalism is a mental disease. AND THIS TRUE STIMULUS PROGRAM AND JOB CREATING PROJECT WON'T COST THE TAX PAYOR $1 , it is completely funded by private sector money!

    Second, the GOP is compromising by extending the payroll holiday (which I am grateful for) without being able to pay for it (which is a bad move in long-term) and extending unemployment benefits even longer (another LT bad move), yet the Dimocrats still claim the GOP is not compromising, since the GOP ties it an ENORMOUS job creating machine.


    If the Dimocrats in the Senate reject this, they are truly socialist that prefer to doom the economy and if Obama vetos this, then I don't want to hear ANYONE get angry when we JUSTIFIABLY call him a Marxist!

    The only issue here is Obama appeasing the eco-crazies in his base. The GOP has out-maneuvered him at every turn. That's what happens when you can't negotiate with the other side.

    I approve of the move simply because the pipeline will create jobs and those jobs will create revenues for small business which will create more jobs. Plus all the activity (sales, payroll taxes) will create tax income for the government who is running almost a trillion in debt again this year.

    Its like stimulus spending using private "BIG CORPORATE" money without using tax dollars.

    I think they should add in a stipulation that all tax revenues from the sale of the oil from the pipeline is to go into the social security trust fund and NOT TO EVER be used for anything else until social security is either eliminated or solidly funded for 3 generations out.

    Yeah.......but lets not forget the studies that state it will create a huge carbon footprint.

    Oh wait........forgot..........you guys believe climate change is a myth.

    If that's true, why is there no snow in Sweden this year? Wanna talk about the hottest summer in the US in many years?

    If we don't use that oil we will just buy it from our enemies in the middle east.....nice red herring though. The pipeline wont make us use more or less oil as a nation, it will just re-direct where our wealth goes to purchase what we will use.

    You do realize that if we actually create jobs, we won't need as much unemployment money.

    Believe it or not, some people would rather be working than sitting on their asses collecting gumint checks.

    Whatever.. I've been hearing this shit since the seventies.... we're gonna burn to death, we're gonna freeze to death, we're going to drown to death, we're gonna run out of water.

    The enviro-Nazis are batting .000. AGW is bunk bullshit.... FACT. Lack of snow in one year or even ten, out of 4,500,000,000 years does not a trend make.

    Are you aware that there was snow in July in the bread basket of America back in the late 1700's?

    Are you aware that before this year, the hottest summer on record was decades ago?

    I find those that are still fighting for this "global warming" turned to "global cooling" turned to "climate change" as silly "chikcen littles"
