Did I say I want more Republicans in office? Where?<quoted text>Why do you want more Repubs in office? So they can do this to American workers?
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
The method Republicans have used to block all jobs legislation in the past two years is the same. A jobs bill comes up, it is filled with positive things for the economy, Republicans filibuster debate, this shields them from having to make floor speeches on why they don't want tax breaks for small businesses... etc.
Why? Well, if the economy recovers too strongly before an election, Republicans will lose power. If jobs numbers look too good, people will want to keep the same party. By Republicans blocking all jobs legislation and keeping jobs numbers from improving they believe this is their ticket to power.
People with big feet shouldn't stick them in their mouths, Dood. Dental work is expensive.
Complaints about pending legislation that may or may not have passed are usually(but not always) hollow because the Devil is always in the details. Liberals have a penchant for playing this little game. These bills might contain a poison pill or some other slight-of-hand trick inside them but when good people vote them down for good reason, the Liberal Media headlines and Liberal Topix posters try making hay with them.
I'm not playing today, Dood:]
