You've hit the bullseye again! Great post!!<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.
Personally, I don't think grimes can win against turtleman, but it's only 5 points...... So I may be wrong. I think everyone is tired of the do nothing party if no republicans crying and whining (here AND in Washington) and the majority are hopefully in their way out of Washington.
Our country will continue to recover as it had been doing for the last 5 years b
