More government jobs, not private sector. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (R-Ill.) requested a motion to waive the budget point of order, which was raised by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). Democrats needed 60 votes, but got only 58.

“This violates the Budget Control Act, there is no dispute about it,” Sessions said in a floor speech Wednesday.“The bill will not even go through the House and it violates the Constitution because it says revenue bills must be started in the House ...[and] this is a revenue bill.”

The Veterans Jobs Corp Act would have created new job-training programs to help veterans find work in targeted fields such as national park conservation, historic preservation projects, police work and firefighting, among others. More attempts to grow government and not reign in spending. Proof that this administration cannot create jobs, that is up to the private sector.

What is all the fuss in Virginia from the looming sequester then? If the government doesn't create jobs, then how will it kill military jobs then? Either the government can create jobs or it can't.

Military contracts in most shops are filler work. That helps support the private sector but isn't the only source of income. It's the contractors that create the jobs, not the government. I know, since my shop did military work 20 years ago.

Then it shouldn't be a big deal to go off the fiscal cliff then. But the GOP sure did run enough ads in Virginia to make it sound like the world was ending.

he United States fiscal cliff refers to the effect of a series of enacted legislation which, if unchanged, will result in tax increases, spending cuts, and a corresponding reduction in the budget deficit.[1] These laws include tax increases due to the expiration of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 and the spending reductions ("sequestrations") under the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The year-over-year changes for fiscal years 2012-2013 include a 19.63% increase in revenue and 0.25% reduction in spending.[2]

Some major domestic programs, like Social Security, federal pensions and veterans' benefits, are exempted from the spending cuts. Spending for federal agencies and cabinet departments, including defense, would be reduced through budget sequestration.
So all of us, NOT JUST THE WEALTHY, will be paying higher taxes!

During this administration's first term, in fact reached with last month's new job's total...all the jobs have now been replaced, that were lost during the Bush Recession...further job's plans have been stymied by house blocking....Example: American Jobs Act....We will never know, whats possible, if no democratic jobs bills, can't clear the House....

I was actually leaning towards McCain till he put ******g MORON Palin on ballot with him! Clinton was like a "frat boy" in personal life but was actually a pretty good president, Reagan was terrible, Carter was, and still is, a very very good man, but was a lousy president!
Reagan was terrible? Haven't heard that much!

Our America's spending in military is largest in recent years after 9.11.
That is, terrorists has been decreasing our Navy-Forces.

We have been using money against al-Qaeda.
And, killing terrorits donot need Aegis-ships nor even aircraft-carrers.

In fact, during President Bush (-2007),
our U.S.Navy budget has been diminishing.

The number of ships of the U.S.Navy has been decreasing for these 20 years.

It's not President Obama's fault.

So, let's destroy al-Qaeda as soon as possible at all means!
I think that we America can use even atomic-weapons agains terrorists.

We America is the justice!

Our America must make cars in the U.S., and export those cars from the U.S. to the world!
We America must make money first!
If our America has enough money, then you can buy aircraft-carrers.
You can buy evem U.S.S.Enterprise.
However, we need a lot of money first!

Money, money money, money, money!

(I am deeply sorry that I am an ill-bred-man.)

So, please buy American!
Please export American-products!

China, Taiwan, Germany, Japan, Russia, and South-Korea are evil-fascism-communism-empires !

The only reason you cling to coal, is because you have some misplaced sense of pride such as: My daddy was a miner, and his daddy before him. I ask you this now, why does that matter so damn much to you? If your father was a porta-potty technician would you cling to that? I will never understand this ignorant sense of southern pride some of you seem to have. WOOPEEE!!!
You've been watching too much tv. Just what do you think people who live in the coal regions will do to earn a living? THERE ARE NO JOBS BUT COAL in those areas. You're talking about uprooting entire communities to find work somewhere else, or better yet, just start taking welfare. Who will pay for that, do you think?
