    Obama's Jobs Bill Fails To Advance In Senate Despite White House Push | Fox News

    Why didn't you work with Reid to get the vote done last week, when the GOp wanted and CALLED for it publicly???

    Reid REFUSED to allow the vote the REPUBLICANS called for last week, and the result is that the bill as a whole is dead.

    For once, I agree with something Harry Reid did.

    The President can't even get his own people to buy into this.

    Obama: Pass this bill right away!

    GOP: Okay, let's go ahead and vote on this sucker!

    Reid: No, we want to re-write it, fundamentally changing the language of the bill first

    Obama: Okay, then can we pass the bill right away?

    GOP: Yeah, let's go ahead and vote on this sucker already!

    Reid: you know... no. I think we need to break it up into little parts first.

    Obama: Um, okay. I guess.

    Because Reid and the other Democrats think it didn't go far enough.

    Not a single Republican supports jobs for America. Just like the first stimulus, a lot if it is "tax cuts" so they could get Republicans on board.

    Now this is what's hilarious. Over one hundred Republican Senators and Congressmen applied for and received stimulus money for their communities which was used to improve railroads, bridges, sewers, and hold jobs fairs. Even Scott Brown used stimulus money to install broadband internet in the business community. Do we really need to link to that again?

    The President got 51 Dems to support it. Unfortunately, since 60 votes is the new majority, and we all know Rethugs don't want a victory for Obama, the bill didn't pass. But that's okay. The American people got to see exactly where the GOP stands on jobs. According to a new poll, a majority of Americans support the president's bill.

    Americans Favor Obama Jobs Plan by 45% to 32%
