As you know, 48 republicans and 2 democRats with jobs filibustered the Jobs Bill to get President Obama out of office by any means necessary, and to sucker those misinformed/uninformed voters they haven't disenfranchised into voting for them.
This is what they voted against.
The bill would have reduced the deficit by $6 billion over ten years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The Republicans filibustered deficit reduction.
The bill would have created nearly two million new jobs. The Republicans filibustered the creation of two million new jobs.
The bill would have increased the gross domestic product (GDP) by two points. The Republicans filibustered increasing the GDP.
The bill would have cut taxes for 98 percent of businesses. The Republicans filibustered a tax cut for businesses.
The bill would have offered a tax credit for military veterans returning from war. The Republicans filibustered a tax credit for the troops.
The bill would have reduced unemployment by a full percentage point. The Republicans filibustered a reduction in unemployment.
The bill would have been paid for by a 5.6 percent surtax on millionaires — a surtax that, again, a majority of Republican voters support. The Republicans filibustered paying for the bill.
Bigotry is the only thing that can make voters vote against their self interest, and repubicans are experts at using bigotry as a weapon of mass distraction from the real issues, facing 99% of ALL Americans.
as long as Republicans are able to convince Americans to vote for them because they believe “Well, the Republicans won’t target me as a parasite, it’s all those other guys who are the problem” then they’ll discover too late what the GOP truly intends to do.
What are they good for?
No Health Care.
No Social Security.
Nothin from nothin leaves nothin.
