    Right Wingers Imbecility On Languishing Bills

    They whine that Senate Democrats act like House Republicans. How stupid is that?

    Are the Republicans calling for more gridlock? Hope not.

    The House may vote down legislation the conservatives don't agree with, the Senate (harry reed) refuses to let the Senate vote on it. Put it to a vote either up or down.

    The Senate has voted to reject the temporary spending bill passed by the House late last night.

    ---

    Senators rejected dueling Democratic and Republican small-business tax cut plans on Thursday, the latest futile effort to break the election-year gridlock thatÂ’s consumed Capitol Hill on issues dealing with jobs and the economy.

    On a 53-44 vote, Republicans shot down the Democratic bill that would have provided a 10 percent income tax credits to small businesses that hire new workers or give current workers raises, as well as allow companies to quickly write off purchases on new equipment. Sixty votes were needed.

    Senate Republicans have thwarted a quick vote sought Wednesday by Democrats on a House-passed GOP bill to extend the payroll tax cut.

    of course there are more examples of Reed allowing Republicans to vote on bills.

    stop living in a bubble

    Both frustrating and true.
