    The president just gave a speech saying Congress was going to vote on the Jobs Bill next week. As soon as the speech was over, it was announced it would be today! Whoa! The votes came through pretty quickly!

    The Jobs Bill President Obama wanted passed NOW NOW NOW. Reid was changing the bill in the Senate the last I heard. Isn't that supposed to be done in the House?

    You haven't heard?

    Obama has decided to create Jobs. In memory of Steve. It's gonna be awesome! The occupation of Wall St is now a formal job. Each occupier will be paid $20 per hour, with a guaranteed pension, to be paid by evil rich people. Cool, huh?

    If Reid is introducing the bill today, that is only the first reading. All that will happen today is that it will be sent to committee for mark up. After committee, it will be subject to two more votes before it would be sent to the house.

    And the house has the option, depending on how they feel, of either ignoring it totally, like the senate has with all the legislation the house has passed, or amending the hell out of it and voting it down, or amending the hell out of it and passing it in such a form that the senate or Obama will never agree to it.
