Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Friday struggled to make headway on their top legislative priority -- job creation -- as the government prepared to shut off funding for many of the measures they hope will bring down the unemployment rate.

Excellent idea, but so typical of government: too much paperwork and STILL there is waste of the public's money.

How about the democrats giving TAX BREAKS to businesses?

presidunce obama's first stimulus is a huge FAILURE - Americans do not want another multi-BILLIONS OF DOLLAR SCAM!

odumba promised that unemployment would not go above 8% if his stimulus bill passed - HE LIED!!!

why would anyone want this after the first one failed horribly - and since obama has put us into a $15.8 TRILLION dollar debt!!!

WE ARE F**KING BANKRUPT! WAKE UP MR. HUSSEIN!

The democrats top legistrative priority????????

Give me a friggin break......obama, reid and pelosi have kept congress tied up for a year on obama's healthcare bill.....

the dems got scared when Brown was elected and threw together what they called a "modest" jobs bill.........

and then immediately wasted more time on a healthcare summit.......while their "modest" bill set in their desk drawer.

obama's obsession is the only priority for the dems.

US Dems are in the pocket of unions... some unions, building ones especially discriminate. Dems score poor kids by being beholden to the teachers union. Lower the minimum wage so kids can get entry level jobs!

The jobs bill, aka the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act (S.AMDT.3310 to H.R.2847) has two major tax provisions:
(1) an exemption from payroll taxes for employers who hire new employees in 2010 and
(2) a $1,000 tax credit for employers who keep those employees for at least 52 weeks.

However, the bill does NOT require that these new workers be American workers or that employers use E-Verify to confirm that the workers hired are work authorized.

Given this administration's failure to mandate US citizenship verification as part of its healthcare reform package and now this, makes one wonder about their priorities.

Seems like this administration is he11-bent on giving this country over to the illegals.

Lets pass a bill designed to put people to work..Dems...all the while it will be aimed a programs to create jobs for people who do not want them...the already Dem program recipients....
Why not lower the tax burden on employers and create some new laws to protect American industry from foreign powers...Wait..that is contrary to politics on both sides of the aisle...We are screwed again...
