Republicans Victorious – Will Send More Jobs Overseas
From yesterday’s Washington Post:
In a vote of 53 to 45, Republicans and Joe Lieberman (and four Democrats) kept the bill, which punished companies that send jobs overseas, from passing.
…Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) dismissed the bill as “a purely political exercise” that never had a chance of becoming law.
This coming from someone whose party just released the “Pledge To America”.
In reality, this is the Republican game to stop the Democrats from accomplishing ANYTHING.
They don’t care who this hurts, as long as they can leverage it to try to get back into power so they can rack up the reforms and changes they achieved during the Bush years. Wait, what?
For those keeping score:
Democrats voting to block the bill were Ben Nelson (Neb.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Mark Warner (Va.) and Max Baucus (Mont.).
