Obama election-year jobs agenda stalls in Congress

What are the Democrats doing, trying to make the American people think that they got smart, well I for one do not think that they are, it just  looks like they are just thinking that this will save their ass with the American people. If any one believes this, then they are just as dumb as the Democrats, they didn’t think any thing about how much it cost the tax payers on health care, or about making them criminals (will this law be a misdemeanor or a felony) if you  don’t buy health insurance,  so what makes you think that they care about saving the tax payer money now, this is nothing but trying to save their ass (or their jobs).

Here is a good question, has the Government said how much it will cost the American people, or what is in this Health bill that they have rewritten sense it was passed in to law, or should I say who now has to take this or what got put back in to this health bill.

I was under the impression that when the bill was passed it was the law and could not be tampered with unless it went back to the house and the senate where the whole process started all over again, and the other bill was null and void until a new bill could be drawn up, other words the law could not be enforceable. Now you have this jobs bill.

I don’t know about you but I think there are a lot of  laws broken in Washington D.C. in the last TEN YEARS, and why aren’t these law being enforced, or is this where the corruption starts?

We have the FBI, Attorney Generals who are suppose to be the best at enforcing the laws, so why is it when Government breaks the law they look the other way.

WASHINGTON – The election-year jobs agenda promised by President Barack Obama and Democrats has stalled seven months before voters determine control of Congress.

Democrats have no money to pay for the program. That’s because both Republicans and the Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget Committee objected to taking money left over from the fund that bailed out banks, automakers and insurers and using it for the jobs bill.

Such a move, they insisted, would add tens of billions of dollars to the $12.8 trillion national debt.

An $80 billion-plus Senate plan promised an infusion of cash to build roads and schools, help local governments keep teachers on the payroll, and provide rebates for homeowners who make energy-saving investments. Two months after the plan was introduced, most of those main elements remain on the Senate’s shelf.

Obama’s proposed $250 bonus payment to Social Security recipients is dead for the year, having lost a Senate vote last month.

What’s going ahead instead are more modest initiatives. That includes some help for small business or simple extensions of parts from last year’s economic stimulus measure. None is expected to make an appreciable dent in an unemployment rate, stuck at 9.7 percent.

Even legislation to help the jobless has run into trouble.

The idea of a jobs agenda arose late last year when the unemployment rate hit 10 percent and Democrats voiced concern that the majority party wasn’t doing enough to spur job creation.
