Bring Jobs Act to a vote

Posted: October 20, 2011 - 9:18am

It is time for Congress, especially the House of Representatives, to stop adding to the terrible economy and possible recession, and bring the Americans Jobs Act up for a vote. It may have been a Democratic President's idea but it is an American need so stop the partisanship and get this thing passed. Both parties support many aspects of the bill and both parties have been elected by Americans who need this bill passed. Why do some of these folks think they only respresent people who agree with them? Eric Cantor can use his power to make a difference for America by getting the economy going with the passage of this bill rather than continuing to add to the toxic behavior of the House of Representatives! If he is afraid of his election prospects, this should certainly help him so it's a win/win situation for him.

Get it up for a vote and get it passed now.

Thank You Connie Besler for having the Courage to Speak the Truth here on the Kenai.

You are Living in The Land of No.
What ever Our President has to say, no matter What it is, the Answer is NO. The Sky is Blue NO the Sky is White

Speaking of Jobs, Our Afghanistan & Iraq Veterans have EARNED the right to move to the front of the line & be first at Job Opportunites & Job Interviews before All other Alaskans.

You Mrs Besler are surrounded by the Party of NO :
The Republicans control Our House of Representatives,
1/2 of Our State Senate & Our Governor.

So Yes it takes Courage to Speak Up vs The Party of NO.

Jobs bill

Why does every jobs bill the Democrats introduce always seem to benefit only union workers? It couldn't have anything to do with the many millions of dollars they seem to dump into Democrat campaigns every election cycle could it? How about enforcing the immigration laws already passed to help the economy instead. And just maybe charge the lowest 50% of Americans who pay NO income taxes at all around 10% to help relieve our huge deficit and then cut the spending to every agency of the government around 20% and cancel all congressional pensions. But this would take guts on the part of our pretend President and we all know he doesn't have any!
