    Gee...hmmmm... why don't senate democrats want to vote on Obama's Jobs bill?


    By Associated Press, Updated: Tuesday, October 4, 12:01 PM

    WASHINGTON — If Democrats want President Barack Obama’s jobs bill, the Senate should vote on it right away, a top Republican says. But Senate Democrats aren’t ready to bring it up for a vote yet.

    Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he hopes the $447 billion jobs package will not pass Congress. But the Kentucky Republican says he wants to put the Senate on the record on the proposal immediately. Obama has become increasingly forceful in urging the divided Congress to pass the jobs bill soon, delivering that message again Tuesday in Texas.

    It's just a publicity stunt. Haven't you heard?

    If he opposed it they would criticize him for not letting the bill come up to vote, but he isn't so it's a publicity stunt.

    Either way, it's the Republicans fault. It's the Republicans fault that Democrats dont want to go on the record to support this bill.

    This stunt was perpetrated by Obama by creating a bill he KNEW would never fly. McConnell has effectively handled the situation.

    That Obama's constituents are not yelling and yammering at their party for so abusing the system is disgusting to me! Our nation is suffering, because our nations leader, is an asshole game playing dick-wad- spending our tax dollars to go campaign stumping!

    If anything he has done proves he can't give a flying fuck about his country and her people, it is this ridiculous pretense at a job creation bill!

    Harry Reid has been delaying the vote as numerous Senate Dems are up for re-election next year.

    So, in other words, they know the bill is an ineffective piece of shit and they are not willing to hang their political asses on the line for it.

    But liberal's on here and the media are going to try and pin Obama's failure to be an effective leader on republican's.

    This guy can't get voted out of office soon enough!

    Well I guess you can't call the repubs "obstructionist" on the jobs bill anymore.

    Good for you McConnell, actually trying to do your job for a chagne :clap2:
