"It will be the first of several election-year jobs bills promised by Democrats to be enacted into law, though there's plenty of skepticism that the measure will do much to actually create jobs."

First of 'several'?

Sounds like Democrats buying mid-term votes.

Hey guys, at least this one invests in America. I'm tired of seeing our wealth flow to China, Mexico, India, and elsewhere.

How much racism would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck racism. Obama isn't a Muslim you ignorant moron. And who the f says chink anymore. I wish all the people like you in this country would move to Texas and Rick Perry would follow through with his fantasy of seccession. I can't understand how you're such a hateful person you must have been abused as a child or something.

I thought all conservatives LOVED tax cuts? Can't we show the love to a tax holiday for small business?

Or do we oppose tax cuts when the President & his party propose them? Wouldn't Ronald Reagan be ashamed of all the petulant complaining?

I just hope they can "buy" enough of them. Imagine! Helping Americans to improve their lives just to get votes! Disgraceful!

Who do these companies get a tax break for absolutely nothing when this is what companies do all the time, hire unemployed people?

Only rarely does an employed person get hired by another company while they are currently employed. So few in fact it's nearly unheard of.

How is it possible to not hire unemployed workers when that's what hiring people is, hiring unemployed people.

The tax break is a freebie since employers 99% of the time already do this, hire unemployed people.

Major scam.

Actually the only time I was unemployed before getting a job was 1983, fresh out of high school. I was employed when I took every job after that, always for more money and more benefits.
