Perhaps he'll try, but when it's his own party blocking it... Well, it's hard to blame that on the Repubs
So the republicants were demonized before the bill even existed yet its on the democrats to get the ball rolling and they cant! See more proof they only act in their best interests not the people. We all know how this will be spun to the uneducated, uninformed, unengaged zombie army... dems drop the ball but its the repubs fault. Wait n see only matter of time
Any Republican who'd vote for this foolishness would deserve to be voted out immediately. (That goes for Dems, too, but it's a different calculation for them.)
BS.... it's political games is all. The longer it's out there, the longer he [POTUS] can claim that people (Congress- which translates to evil Republicans to the stupid) are stopping his measures to fix the economy and make jobs out of thin air.
Durbin is in IL where Dems control pretty much everything (considering the Chicago vote in a federal election), and he's one of the biggest lyingest sacks of carp- I don't trust anything he says.
I'm curious to see if the measure of Democrats in congress refusing to sign this is a start to a "I'm even running against a do-nothing Democrat congress, like I was the first two years of my terms. Independents, it wasn't my fault-it was theirs."
Well, if Gov. Perdue gets her way, these folks who are afraid for their positions won't have to worry- go ahead and pass obama's tax bill. Why the heck not? It's not like this bill is gonna create jobs and we all know the rich don't pay their fair share....
