    "We estimate that the American Jobs Act (AJA), if enacted, would give a significant boost to GDP and employment over the near-term.

    The various tax cuts aimed at raising workers’ after-tax income and encouraging hiring and investing, combined with the spending increases aimed at maintaining state & local employment and funding infrastructure modernization, would:
    Boost the level of GDP by 1.3% by the end of 2012, and by 0.2% by the end of 2013.
    Raise nonfarm establishment employment by 1.3 million by the end of 2012 and 0.8 million by the end of 2013, relative to the baseline."

    Of course AJA was blocked in the Congress by Republicans, who now blame Obama for the lack of jobs.

    Try again....It WAS NOT blocked in congress by the Republicans.

    Where are the jobs you say? They'll become available on January 21, 2013 when we start working on the massive job of cleaning up Obama's fucking mess.

    How Many American Jobs Did Your Senator Vote Against?
    Yesterday evening, every single Republican senator and two Democrats — Sens. Ben Nelson (NE) and Jon Tester (MT) — voted against taking up the president’s jobs plan. Even though the plan enjoyed the support of 51 senators — a majority — it failed to advance because of the GOP’s filibuster.

    In fact, it will go a long way toward reducing the burden of government on all of us.

    I enjoy how your side likes to make the claim that students who are going to college are screwed because they have tens of thousands of dollars of debt before they even get their first job.

    You Democrats have placed (without even asking them) hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt on people who have not even been born yet.

    They will have to work 8 to 9 months of every year to pay for your excess and greed.

    Ever wonder how much economic stimulus would be generated if they didn't have to pay that money to a purely for profit entity that returns less than 5 cents on every dollar?

    Yeah....I think that cutting government will create A fucking LOT of jobs.

    None.

    voting against Democrats IS a vote for jobs.

    If you're mentally ill. Take a look at Clinton's quote about 2/3's of all the jobs created in the past 52 years were under democrats which was found to be completely true.

    Democrats = job creation

    Republicans = shipping jobs to china
