The Senate Republicans called Obama's bluff and called for an immediate vote whereupon Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said no, he wasn't ready. Seems that he couldn't get the Senate Democrats to back Obama's phony baloney jobs bill.

It is all smoke and mirrors and even the Democrats can see it.

Why do we need a jobs bill? Obama's multi-trillion dollar stimulus program was going to produce millions of "shovel ready" jobs, remember? Of course, as it turns out, the stimulus plan failed in epic fashion. The only thing it created was a couple of trillion dollars in additional debt. Why would any rational person believe this will be any different?

The lies just keep rolling off his lips. This is not a job bill, its a tax bill he claims will create jobs, a foolish idea on his part. The rich don't make enough to do what Obama is reporting. Taxking the rich is his way of punishing success and prosperity.

The rich pay taxes in more ways than one. Here in Utah the Huntsman have built Hospitals, factories, and many community organizations. If the Huntsman's have to spend that charity on taxes then who will pick up the Huntsman's public gifts? And this is true for many of the rich across america. Obama tax proposal is a hoax and lie and irresponsible as all his plans have been.

All jobs bills and bailout funds have made the Chinese and its workers rich as it keep them in jobs producing goods for the local government of America. No bail out funds or taxes will benefit america as long as imports and foreign goods destroy American jobs and manufacturing. Even if every American was forced to give all their earnings to government, cheap labor will keep us destroyed.

A real jobs bill would close our borders and ports.

We are against the Jobs Bill because our lifelong employment system is against Gods wisdom and warnings and creates our problems. Debt, interest, insurance, seeking riches and honors, fear, weapons, joining nations for security or provision, and social institutions to care for our family members all cause bondage. God promises to destroy nations that destroy the earth; that is us.

A garden paradise lifestyle with trees, plants and pets that provide fresh food around us easily solves problems, is fair, inexpensive, easily available and sustainable through eternity, things the employment lifestyle is not It is a healthy lifestyle that does not pollute or cause wars for foreign resources. We need NO oppressive, unfair and costly insurance programs; our families are commanded to care for each other. There is no need for nuclear power for industry or weapons and no reason to leave homeland and family seeking riches elsewhere.

Friends, leaders and candidates need to know our opinion for Gods garden paradise lifestyle not our failed enslavement to a lifetime of employment. God cannot save us from the worlds system UNTIL we are willing to give up the world system.

The last stimulus package could have paid for solar panels placed on every house in the United States, Canada, and Mexico with change.

Green jobs would have shot through the roof.

Good job BO.

Just look at President Obama's accomplishments despite the obstructionism from the GOP. A national healthcare bill, He has created more jobs in the private sector than Bush did in 8 years. He got Bin Ladin. The Gop has publicly stated that their number one goal is to make Obama fail and be a 1 term president. They dont care if that comes at the expense of the rest of us. So they do NOTHING. The GOP has never done anything except start wars and bankrupt our nation. Just remember where this country was just 11 short years ago when Bill Clinton left George Bush a balanced budget and cash surpluss, unprecidented peace and prosperity. The tax rates on the wealthy is at its lowest point ever. Thats why we are in this mess.In 2000, Alan Greenspan predicted that because of Clintons policies this nation would be out of debt and have a 2 trillion$$ surpluss by 2010. What happened?? The GOP and George Bush. Some of you talk about lies. Just turn on your radio or fox news and youll hear all the lies you want to. If Ron Reagan were alive today he would be considered Liberal

"A national healthcare bill"

Don't count your chickens before the eggs hatch. The US Supreme Court is going to rule on the constitutionality of that law and the liberals don't think they have to 5 votes they need.

Their decision will come right in the middle of the 2012 election season and if the vote goes against Obama ......
