This is in response to Sandy Laurie, who went off on how the Obama jobs bill was somehow filibustered by the GOP. I am not sure where she is coming from because what I read in the left wing Huffington Post said the Senate rejected the jobs bill. The Senate voted 51-48 on a procedural motion to begin debate on the bill.
A handful of Democrats who had concerns with the bill sided with Republicans including Jim Webb and Joe Manchin. They said they would have voted against the bill because the things they support in the bill outweighed the fact that it is an expensive, temporary fix to a problem that needs a big, long-term solution.
I am tired of being criticized by people who do not keep to the subject. The subject is President Barack Obama will not create jobs because the Democrats want everyone dependent on the government.
