Reid to Obama, we might look at your bill next month

snip-

Despite President Barack Obama’s urgency to “pass this bill now,” the American Jobs Act may have to wait until next month, or later, before Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid even brings it to the floor for a vote.

In his speech to a joint session of Congress last week, Obama implored lawmakers to pass the bill and its $477 billion price tag immediately. And this week, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) launched a campaign of web and television ads touting the bill and rallying support for its passage.

None of that may matter, since Reid’s response has been more of a careless shrug. It’s not surprising, though, considering the discontent surrounding the bill from Senate Democrats.

Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia called the president’s ideas for paying for the billy “terrible.”

“We shouldn’t increase taxes on ordinary income. … There are other ways to get there,” he added.

What he actually said is that repubs WON'T back the bill but he wants them to have to vote on it.  However, there are some things that have to be worked on prior to tackling the job bill.

Repubs don't want to do anything that might help the country.  Because they hate Obama so much, that they will do anything and everything just to defeat him.  The country doesn't matter at all.

It would appear that the obama regime has begun its death spiral.  When backed into a corner, is when that regime becomes very dangerous.  418 days until Election Day.... I hope that we can make it without martial law being declared by Zero's Zealots.

"regime, death spiral,dangerous, martial law"  -  All this points to retaliation by someone who can slit a throat in three seconds.

LOL   I would be surprised if you could cut yourself shaving.
