Members of the Senate Finance Committee unveiled a long-awaited bipartisan jobs bill Thursday morning — only to have it scrapped within hours by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

I am SO glad that I'm going to be able to personally play a role in ousting that idiot come November. Reid should have been fired long ago, but better late than never.

Anyway, this is for all those lefties who are saying that the (R)s are "the party of 'no'."

Spin away.

No spin, cause he's a power-freak, seeing his power withering. Begone, Rat!

From the link:

"Reid told reporters that the Baucus-Grassley bill wouldn’t do enough to show voters that the Senate was serious about addressing the unemployment problem.

“The message is so watered down with people wanting other things in this big package that we’re going to have to come back and finish that,” he said."

I read earlier today that the bill barely addressed jobs creation, so, better to go back to the drawing board.

The dems have been playing "all or nothing" since they took over. Yet, even with a supermajority, they STILL couldn't accomplish anything.

Who is the real "party of 'no'" here?

He should be surprise as it sounds like the same thing as the stimulus that he and Pelosi created that was like a pork wishlist come true;minus any of the infrastruture and jobs creation they said it was.

It looks like the simplified package is going to include the extension of the highway bill and the Build America bonds for building infrastructure. If this passes I'll still have a job for the rest of the year; I'm all for this.

Go Biparts!

Not for long. In about 9 months, he'll be at the back of the unemployment line.

I hope you can keep on working. Although the jobs bill may not be perfect, anything that keeps Americans working, while not killing the deficit even more or creating the need for another stimulus bill can be seen as a positive. Maybe if Ried and Pelosi would just butt out...
