well when your entire agenda is to halt anything that might help the economy and do everything to pander to your rabid right wing base then that's all you can get through.

15%? I'm surprised it isn't 100%.

That's funny, I remember Boehner and Cantor vowing NOT to let measures like this through the House at all, because they weren't "serious business".

What do you mean? Their method for job creation is tax cuts and ending regulation. Pretty sure they've put a lot of bills of that nature forward.

"The Senate will pass the day in debate over the motion to proceed to the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act."

Not only do Democrats support violence against women, they want to reauthorize it. A slap in the face, literally.

Well, not about any old tax cuts, naturally. But what about tax cuts for the rich?

I'm pretty sure those pretty much accomplish anything. In fact the sun came out just when I typed the phrase "tax cuts for the rich".

Ooo! And now some song birds just started tweeting!

How does it apply? Those seem to be all state level bills. (Pro-Choice and disgusted by such bills, but doesn't really apply to the federal congress)

And rather than try to actually compromise on anything in the interest of getting something passed, they just keep throwing up stuff they know that won't pass the Senate. You know...Because they are committed to jobs.

Can you give me the cliff notes of specifics in any of those bills that allows for job creation (that does not pertain to removing regulations or lowering taxes?)

Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act

All the links have executive summaries. For example, for your first one:


H.R. 2587 would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance. The bill would amend the National Labor Relations Act to prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), in future and pending cases, from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstances. The legislation would effectively prevent the NLRB from restricting where an employer can create jobs in the United States. The bill would eliminate an extreme enforcement remedy available to the board; more than a dozen alternative remedies remain available to hold employers accountable for unlawful labor practices and make employees whole. The bill would apply to any complaint for which a final adjudication by the NRLB has not been made by the date of enactment.

Classic.

That bill wouldn't create a single solitary job. More incredible yet, it would help drive DOWN wages, benefits and protections for American workers.

Undermining the NLRB doesn't create jobs; it just makes the jobs which exist shiattier because employers know labor law is weakly enforced at best. Just because Republicans call something a jobs bill doesn't make it one.
