Republicans aren’t the only ones blocking the American Jobs Act

Senate.gov: Roll Call for s1660, ie American Jobs Act
edit: 1660 is the cloture vote. The actual American Jobs Act is 1549.

What’s that I see? 3 Democrats not voting for it? Reid (D, NV, Senate Leader), Nelson (D, NE), and Tester (D, MT). All Republicans voted against it, true. And Reid is voting against it as a procedural move so he can bring it back up in the Senate in the future. But 2 Democrats beside him voted against it. I guess that makes opposition to the bill bipartisan, while support is partisan, right? I’m just going by definitions, here.

If Obama can’t get all the Democrats to vote for the bill, how can he blame it on the GOP? Yet that is exactly what he is doing. I watched him do it on Leno’s Tonight Show last night, 10/25/11. That’s the full show, there are clips listed below that one.

Don’t let the media spoon feed you. Don’t let them hide the truth from you in plain sight.

Ha!

    Because most of the people who watch Leno will believe anything a democrat says.

    Wait until campaign season when the Democrats roll out their 50-50-50-50 plan. This is the minimum number of miles in any geographic direction a democratic candidate must stay from any part of Obama’s campaign – for fear of being photographed with him.

      Bwahahaha. Good point. He had the college students chanting in Colorado, though.
