As was expected Obama’s “job’s bill”, which really was nothing but
stimuluspatronage part deux and doomed from the start, died. But if you look at the LSM reporting this defeat in the Senate, you would never know the truth of why and how this thing went down in flames. From that Reuter’s article, we get:
(Reuters) – The Senate defeated President Barack Obama’s job-creation package on Tuesday in a sign that Washington is likely too paralyzed to take major steps to spur hiring before the 2012 elections. The $447 billion package of tax cuts and new spending failed by a vote of 50 to 48, short of the 60 votes it needed to advance in the 100-member Senate. Voting was expected to continue for several hours but would not affect the outcome.
Wait a fucking second! I know that republicans control the House, but last I looked it was fairly obvious to me that the democrats controlled the majority of the votes in the Senate, where Harry Reid has been lording the stupid over us all. So how did a democrat controlled congressional organ fail to pass “The One’s” new bill? The real story here, contrary to the bullshit peddled by the LSM and doubled down on by this crappy Reuter’s reporting, is that this pile of shit was so toxic that most democrats could not swallow it. And that’s even AFTER Reid had amended it to please the class warriors that would then have to face their angry leftard constituents at home! Two democrats still defected and voted against it. My bet is that if the margin had been higher in favor of democrats, that the bill would STILL have been defeated with even more democrats voting against it. That’s how idiotic and bad it was.
And this is why I agree with this Wall Street Journal article that these morons never had any real chance of passing this, knew that but didn’t really care about doing anything to address the abysmal job market and economy they have straddled us with, and that it was always about exactly what we now hear the DNC propaganda outlets peddling: evil republicans killed the bill that would have solved all our job problems!
It’s never been about jobs with these people, it is about their power and spreading the wealth to increase their power. Don’t be fooled.
