Just because you say it is a good bill does not make it a good bill. The bill will absolutly increase expenses for American companies. In an economic climate such as we have, that can and will be the deathnell to many companies.

My question to you is, would you rather these companies not exist putting more Americans out of work?

Would anyone care to explain again how the GOP is planning to help the middle class.
It's pathetic journalism to post a stories like this, and not bother to interview Republicans to find out why they voted it down. I could not find a story where anyone showed the initiative to interview a Republican. On the other hand, I saw plenty of quotes from democrat supporters of the bill, so the stories are very one sided.

...and my question to you is...wth are you talking about?

The bill gives the incentive for companies to come back or not to leave at all and the companies that do leave, do not get to write off their outsourcing expenses on the American taxpayer's dime. You're creating a strawman out of a very straightforward idea. Funny thing is, even your strawman does not add up.

Interview Republicans? For what? Every bill passed by Congress is online for all to view. The do nothing, obstructionist GOP has not focused on jobs for the fear of passing something that might make Obama's Presidency look good. Most people are onto their BS. Go ahead find a jobs bill that is an actual jobs bill. Denying the facts in the link is just that...denial. The GOP has done zip, nada, zero, bupkis to create any jobs.

The bill was not put up for a vote..it's still in committee.
What was brought up was the proposal that the bill be brought up for a vote.

Deflection by the Dems because they didn't want to vote on the Obamacare repeal.

Do you have any idea who that bill impacts ?
Do you know what those "tax benefits for offshoring" are and how long they've been in place ? I'll give you a hint..there's 2 of them.

The *******s here fall for anything. The OP couldn't tell us, specifically, what this bill is if his life depended on it. All he knows are his talking points delivered to him by leftwing kook sites.

Exactly. That was precisely the point I made in Post #3. Do liberals care about quality of information? Absolutely not. I wish we could get a little more intellectual depth from the liberal left on this forum. It's unfortunate.

Just saying the GOP voted to block the bill without detailing why is **** poor journalism, and indicative of liberal gerrymandering in order to make Republicans look bad. At least two liberals on this forum fell for it. How many more will pile on?

You sir are the one with no intellectual depth. Your Confirmation Biased posts reflect that daily. Always with the degrading and villification talk about liberals. Why should any try to debate with someone that acts like this? You just keep beating dead horses.

Way to go Ed---perfectly stated as always.

Businenesses don't need incentives to bring jobs back from overseas; if the Dems were really interested in bringing jobs back from overseas, they'd put a muzzle on the their top three constituencies (trial lawyers/environmentalists/unions) and get rid of the 'made in America provisions' that they're so fond of which only kill more jobs, and let the job creators create them without interfering.

But that's impossible for Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Schultz and all the rest of them to comprehend.
