The devil is in the details.

It doesn't apply to the currently employed.

One of the lamest methods for creating jobs.

Only a democrat could think this up.

They bastardized the original efforts to ride the coat tails of the Republicans.

they should just get rid of the social security program and tax, as they are both ponzie schemes and it is the same crime that barry madoff was tried and convicted of.

Actually, it was a Republican idea. What do you think of it now?

still a bad idea, get rid of it altogether and give back that money back to the people who put into it, or at least let those people decide for themselves where to put their own money.

Exactly what is the difference between the proposed tax holiday and the tax holiday that the Republicans suggested?

The Democrats are proposing a tax credit for the first $8100 of earned income. I like the proposal but I won't see its results until next year's tax refund.

The Republicans are proposing a payroll tax holiday. I like this proposal because I would see its results on the next paycheck after it's declared.

What I don't like about both proposals is that it happens only once and it is not paid for by cuts somewhere else in government spending. It is clear that both sides don't have any solutions to a slow economy except for throwing things at the wall to see what sticks. Acts of desperation, in my opinion, but I'll take the scraps.

Democrats are more concerned with gay marriage than unemployment. The citizens will tell the democrats that they are more concerned with unemployement in 2010 and 2012.

There you go again, being fooled by the liar-in-chief. It has the same name, but the details are completely different. He wants the ignorant to believe it's the same bill, but it's not even close. Once a Chicago thug, always a corrupt SOB..!
Get the facts before appearing foolish in front of the world...!

Do the research, we won't always be here to lead you by the hand. It's nothing like the Republican proposal... But he sure fooled you...!!
Fortunately, most of us aren't so easily fooled.... Can you say the same...?
