Washington (CNN) - While Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, indicated that a vote on the Senate jobs bill could come at any time, it is now expected to take place Wednesday.
Earlier Tuesday, Reid said he was "confident" that the Senate could "work out a reasonable time to vote on this ... Otherwise, we'll have to do it really late tonight or very early in the morning."
I hope they don't vote at night....its just more fodder for angry conservative fire
Accept the reality that the Government is never going to bail out Main Street USA, Jobs Bill is a cruel joke, once you do you will be partially depressed and relieved. Here is the good part, we can start believing in ourselves, move forward with our lives, and tell Washington to drop dead, and Washington is very scared about it too. There is a lot of power in relinquishing Washington's control over your life and future.
The Great Depression was the same way, Americans finally gave up on " Help is on the way " and created a their own help called " Self Reliance ". That's how Mom, Dad, Grand Pa and Grand Ma did it, and that's how we have to do it.
Good Bye, Good Luck, and don't forget to write!
almost the final nail in dirty harry's political coffin...hurry November.
Get it done. Do something. We did not send you all to WA to thumb your noses at us. YOU WORK FOR US.
The jobs bill is half garbage... it is better to do nothing or make sure you get it right.
Note: the government doesn't make jobs., companies do. But, the government can regulate business in a way that they have to let employees go.
Finally something passed? Poor hypocrite Republicans were forced to vote yes otherwise get exposed as frauds fighting to keep Americans unemployed to score political points.
Woo Hoo another bailout! What is this the sixth or the seventh bailout since 2006? More taxpayer money wasted.
Remember when this was done by Pres. Carter? Companies would lay off the current staff and hire new people to get the tax break. That's right keep doing the same things over and over expecting different results, that is sound logic. I know why not start the OCEDA program again too, that worked great, NOT.
Anyone who would be against this, should be considered un-American!!! Plain and simple people....quit being haters Rethugs and get in the game to turn things around for us here in the United States of America!!! Stop playing hateful politics with the U.S.A!!
A porkulous bill by any other name is still PORK!!!
Perhaps Senator Richard Burr from our state will find the time to show up for this vote and vote yes. He spent yesterday in NC filing for reelection while other senators were discussing the jobs bill. Unemployment in many areas of our state has been in double digits for quite some time. Senator Burr please think about our state and not just the republican party.
Go to The Federation for American Immigration Reform and the Numbersusa websites.............
The bill that Harry Reid is now pushing does NOT prevent illegals from getting some of these jobs.
In other words........employers will be getting tax credits, even if they hire illegals.
Heard earlier that the Republicans asked for 5 things that were part of the original agreed upon bill (that Reid squashed) and Reid said flat out NO.
I hope Brown goes back and tells this gutless lying loser where to go.
Reid, the unemployment line for you and your LOSER son awaits.
