    jockfever: This thread starts off grounded in reality with the prediction that Romney will win. After that, it's pretty much downhill into the Democrat fever swamps.

    July 19, 2012 Republican Senators voted against bringing jobs back to America. The Bring Jobs Home Act would give a 20% tax break for the costs of Moving Jobs Back to America and would stop business expense deductions for moving operations overseas.

    The Marxist in the White House isn't interested in growing the private sector. He's busy hollowing out the private sector. This was another idiotic stimulus bill with an even more idiotic tax increase during a recession, plus recklessly adding hundreds of billions more to the national debt.

    Even the Democrat-controlled Senate can no longer find enough votes for Obama's snake oil.


    “The truth of the matter is, most Democrats know just as well as I do that passing another stimulus and tax hike is a lousy idea — which is why the president is having such a hard time convincing many Democrats to vote for it,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said before the vote.

    "Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) voted to cut off a potential GOP filibuster but said he nevertheless opposes raising taxes on ordinary income, especially during a time of recession.

    "Senate Democratic leaders rewrote Obama’s jobs bill to pay for its stimulus by levying a 5.6 percent surtax on income over a million dollars beginning in 2013.

    "Webb said the federal government should give wealthy people incentive to invest in the economy instead of increasing their income taxes.

    “I strongly believe that the way to bring good jobs back is to improve our economy in the private sector, and that means more capital investment,” Webb said.

    “Winston Churchill once said something to the effect that you can’t tax your way out of an economic downturn any more than you can pick up a bucket if you’re standing in it,” he added.

    Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.), an Independent who caucuses with Democrats, supported Reid’s bid to begin debate on Obama’s jobs package but voiced misgivings over its substance.

    “The bottom line here is that I don’t believe the potential in this act for creating jobs justifies adding another $500 billion to our almost $15 trillion national debt,” Lieberman said.

    “In fact, I think the most important thing we can do to improve our economy, reduce unemployment [and] create jobs is to bring our national debt under control.”

    Labor Dept. says it underestimated job growth


    "In a press release, the department said it would likely raise total employment by about 386,000 or 0.3% in the year from April 2011 to March 2012.

    “The recovery was not as disappointing as we thought. It was on much firmer footing,” said Justin Wolfers, an economics professor at the University of Michigan."

    Good news is not good news for Republicans.

    metta8: These four Senators co-wrote the Veterans Jobs Bill graphic..."

    jockfever: Anyone who does some fact-checking finds that this Veterans Jobs Bill was a political ploy.

    As a veteran, I think it's goofy to think that Democrats have the best interests of veterans in mind. While our troops had their lives on the line in Iraq, the cadaverous Harry Reid announced to the world that the war was "lost."

    The brilliant military strategist Obama announced that the Surge in Iraq wouldn't work. It obviously did.

    Democrats across the nation work overtime to see that the votes of active duty military personnel are not counted. Democrats are at it again because the military overwhelmingly supports Romney over the inept Marxist in the White House. If anything, veterans should have a bigger say in the affairs of the nation. A veteran is "twice the citizen."

    Republicans support getting Americans back to work, especially veterans. It's Obama/Democrat job-killing policies which have caused the longest period of high unemployment since the Depression.

    Veterans reportedly have higher rates of unemployment than the general population.

    This Senate Veterans jobs bill was little more than a Democrat pre-election political stunt so senators like Bill Nelson, in a tough re-election fight, could hold themselves out as pro-veteran, while they hollow-out the military.

    The Democrats brought up the bill right before adjournment, knowing there was no chance for the House to consider the measure.

    Reid allowed no amendments to the bill. Senator Tom Coburn said “That is why I described the bill as a political exercise instead one that is designed to honor our veterans and strengthen our nation,” he said in his email to Military.com.

    There are already at least six veteran jobs programs. The GAO says that they are inefficient and overlapping. Instead of consolidating and reforming existing programs, Democrats preferred the jackass approach -- create a new $billion dollar program.

    The funding for the program was unclear, causing the usual divide along party lines, with Republicans acting like the adults in the room, concerned about the destructive consequences of adding more to the deficit and the national debt.

    The Senate under Harry Reid and the Democrats accomplished almost nothing except declare almost all bills passed by the House, dead on arrival. The Senate for the third year in a row produced no budget, arrogantly defying the wishes of the American people, whose clear mandate in the 2010 elections was "stop the spending"!

    Republicans voted against the bill because it and the cynical political maneuvers surrounding it, were flawed, like everything else coming from this incompetent manipulative Administration.

    Republicans don't have the votes to control much of what happens in the Senate. It took some Democrats, probably facing re-election, to defect from this Democrat stunt to cause it to fail.

    More bad news for Republicans but good news for Americans

    While there’s still more work to do, today’s unemployment rate fell to its lowest level since the President took office, and as a nation we’re moving forward. Thanks to the hard work and grit of the American people businesses have added 5.2 million new jobs over 31 straight months: http://wh.gov/KCzF

    This is a helpful guide.

    Of course it's getting confusing with Mitt flip-flopping from one position to the opposite position - in a desperate attempt to try to convince his base that he's a "severely conservative" politician - while simultaneously bullshitting swing voters into thinking he's a liberal.

    Like his epic flip-flopping on abortion yesterday.
