GOP senators block top Obama jobs initiative

Washington (CNN) - Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

In voting against the bill, Republicans raised both substantive and procedural problems with the measure.

    By refusing to allow any cooperation with Potus, to the point of diminishing our economy, these GOP trolls are completely ignoring their oath of office. I fail to understand why this is not a crime punishable by law. At the very least this is collusion and conspiracy and they should be held accountable.

    Good way to drive all "working class" Republicans (if there are any) straight to the closest mirror where they'll "see the monkey"
