    This is why I'm voting Obama for president and... for the local Republican for Congress, this year:

    26 Jul 12 Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

    In voting against the bill, Republicans raised both substantive and procedural problems with the measure.

    The bill fell four votes short of the 60 needed to bring it to debate, with 42 voting against it. Four GOP senators -- Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine and Dean Heller of Nevada -- voted in favor of the bill.

    There's no pork in this bill. It has only one purpose and it's a good one. Help bring jobs back to Americans. And of course, 99% of the GOP put party before country and killed it. Thanks guys.

    Who, how and what determines what jobs are "insourced"? Another govt entity that will play politics?

    Dumb idea. Just get govt out of the way.

    Intentional ignorance of a subject, in order to protect political ideology is always wonderful to observe. let me dumb it down:

    20% tax break for bringing jobs back to America.
    Wow. That was tough to grasp!

    Come off it lefties. When are you going to quit whining about having the majority of (ONLY) 2/3 if the federal government? The president could have had any crazy tax scheme in his crazy agenda two years ago and all we got was "Cash for Clunkers" and a thousand useless windmills.

    start sarcasm:
    But aren't all tax breaks the same? When we give tax breaks to rich people they automatically create jobs because they are actually job creators and not people who just take the extra money. Requiring them to create american jobs for their tax breaks will make them sad, and then they won't create random jobs without a purpose. They are job creators and when you hinge their tax breas on the job creation you want them to do they do not create jobs.
    end sarcasm:

    Just going to prove that unless you tell rich people what they have to do for their tax breas, they just take the extra money and put it in the caymans.

    Thank you for your astute analysis and insights. Obviously you're quite familiar with the bill and very concerned about American unemployment and the solutions offered to assuage a difficult situation. Please let us know if in the future, you have even more input containing such comprehensive and direct contribution.
    So you're quite blissful, then?

    Obama is wanting to RAISE taxes on anyone who makes over 250.000 dollars and you think this is going to bring IN sourcing business in?
