    Would someone who is kindly disposed to Obama's plan and good with details please explain what kind of (and numbers of) jobs Obama's bill is supposed to create?

    The "meat" is to raise taxes on all the usual suspects.

    The claim that it will create jobs is merely a ruse to get the gullible to buy into the feds flushing anther 1/2 trillion bucks down the bureaucratic toilet.

    well, we already know that tax breaks for the super rich doesn't correlate with job creation so we might as well try a play from FDR's playbook rather than choke on a "market correction".

    So you don't know the details? Or you're not kindly disposed to it?

    I don't need more links to sites saying that it's just a campaign ploy. I want to hear from someone who can advocate for it intelligently.

    Thanks.

    Irrelevant to the fact that the "jobs bill" is a sham.

    As others have noted, the only "Job" the "Jobs Bill" is intended to Save or Create is Obama's. There is bipartisan opposition to the bill, just as Obama knew there would be. All he wanted was to be able to Blame Congress for the unemployment situation, which is why he publicly cried out for them to "Pass This Bill Now" more than 100 times in the past week. He's trying to lay down a basis for Plausible Buck Passing in 2012.

    It will fool some people, but I doubt it will fool the majority.

    Not if you don't reflexively scream dead before the gun is fired. Remember how convinced you already were BEFORE even seeing the bill?
