'bout fuckin' time, too...
Obama camp: GOP trying to destroy economy on purpose - The Plum Line - The Washington PostThe U.S. Senate is supposed to vote on the American Jobs Act as early as tonight.
Its a bill that will put people to work immediately, and it contains proposals that members of both parties have said in the past that theyd support.
But Senate Republicans want to block it. Not because they have a plan that creates jobs right now not one Republican, in Congress or in the presidential race, does. They only have a political plan.
Their strategy is to suffocate the economy for the sake of what they think will be a political victory. They think that the more folks see Washington taking no action to create jobs, the better their chances in the next election. So theyre doing everything in their power to make sure nothing gets done.
Theres still time for principled Republican senators to declare their independence from this kamikaze political strategy. And the only way it can happen is if they hear from constituents like you today.
