5 . Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Enrolled Bill [Final as Passed Both House and Senate]- ENR)[H.R.3630.ENR][PDF]Oh hell here "THEY" are:
Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act (known as the payroll tax cut extension), which Obama signed Feb. 22
Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act (H.R. 872)
Two Bipartisan Bills:
Westmorelands mailer singles out two pieces of legislation in particular as examples of bipartisan bills being blocked by the Senate. But both had only token Democratic support:
The Jobs and Energy Permitting Act was opposed by 85 percent, or 164 of 192 House Democrats. The bill was designed to speed up the permitting process for offshore oil drilling particularly for Shell Oil off the northern coast of Alaska. Republicans said the bill would provide a fair process for Shell. Democrats argued the act would weaken EPA air pollution controls not just in Alaska but in other offshore areas.
The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act was supported by even fewer Democrats. Only eight of the 192 House Democrats voted for the bill last fall. Westmorelands mailer gives an incomplete description of the events that led to the bill. The mailer claims [t]he bill is in response to last years suit filed by [the National Labor Relations Board] against Boeing for opening a new plant in the right-to-work state of South Carolina. But South Carolinas right-to-work status had nothing to do with the suit. As we wrote earlier this year, the NLRB alleged Boeing made the move to punish workers in Washington for engaging in five strikes since the 1970s. And the complaint was later dropped.
 Blocked by Senate Leadership:
Four of the five proposals approved with a majority of House Democrats were the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, the Access to Capital for Job Creators Act, the Small Company Capital Formation Act and H.R. 1965, which had no title but would amend the securities laws. The bills, designed to help small businesses, received support from 83 percent of Democrats and 96 percent of Republicans. With the exception of H.R. 1965, the bills were bundled into the Republican-sponsored Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. The House on March 8 overwhelmingly passed the bill with a 390-to-23 vote, with 19 members not voting. Reid, the Senate majority leader, said he would introduce similar legislation and move as quickly as we can to pass it, although he also touted a Senate highway bill that he said would create jobs more quickly.
The fifth bill that passed the House with a majority of both Democrats and Republicans was the Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act. The bill would ease country-specific limitations on high-skilled immigrants, allowing U.S. companies to retain more engineers and scientists from China and India. Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer of New York has introduced similar legislation. Schumers bill hasnt passed the Senate but not because of its Democratic leadership. Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa has tried to slow the bills momentum, tacking on amendments, because he said he is concerned about high-skilled Americans seeking the jobs.
Read it and weep!
