Can someone please give me an honest answer about what is wrong with this legislation and why it wasn't even allowed to come to a vote? GOP senators block top Obama jobs initiative - CNN.com This looks to be a good bill to promote bringing back jobs, private business jobs, to American soil. But the majority of the GOP in the senate blocked it from even being allowed to be voted on. Why? This screams of partisan politics and again placing priority on blocking anything that the president does as priority #1 even when it comes at the cost of creating American jobs. So, can someone please explain it to me.
