Has this been introduced into the House or the Senate yet?

The language limiting deductions for families with income over 250K is insane. Also outrageous.

And I’m totally against the hit against general aviation aircraft. Cessna, Piper, Cirrus, Beech will wind up laying off employees.

All the pubbies have to do is publically read the tax increase.

i.e.

If it says "Put 14,000 teachers back in class by such and such a date"

Publically read;

"Property taxes for homeowners making 200,000 or more will be increased by (?) %"


If we repeat the WORDS of the (spit) bill, we'll get into a pissing match over the meaning of is.

If we stick to ONLY the tax increases, that forces the commies to respond to THAT element of this hustle.


There is NO bill, there ARE tax increases.

“154 pages long”

Wonder how long our Constitution would be if todays politicians and lawyers, especially the socialist-leaing ones, wrote it?

Wow, It's up already. And on Scribd, posted by Huffpost? As in the Huffington Post?

That's about as official as it gets right there.

I thought from The Won's speech last week that Boehner and the Congress had to pass the bill so the White House could (have their union buddies) write the bill. That's what I got from the words scrolling up the teleprompter, as Obama read them.

Still no actual (sponsored, submitted) bill on Thomas (the official website of the Library of Congress where bills are posted publicly).

Actually, if you want to see the "official version" from the white house, and not worry about modifications made by HuffPost people, you can get it from the white house website. There are (at least) two versions of the bill on the white house website:

I haven't compared the two versions yet to see which is which and what the differences are. But there are significant differences in the file sizes.

I haven't read that section yet. I thought that might be the "Georgia Works" clone. Paying unemployment benefits to people who are in on-the-job training for new positions, while they are working at their new jobs. That reduces hiring costs and training costs for employers. I expect that will be somewhere in this mess.

The part that I got stuck on was Sec. 374, "Prohibited Acts." Basically, that prohibits anyone from advertising a new job or hiring anyone. There will be no hiring if that section becomes law.

What the heck are you sure you read it right. I have to go look at it. I noticed alot of these things in the so called bill are retreads from the 70’s and also 95 and 98.
If some of these are already on the books why would you have to resubmit them in a new bill?

The first link is a 41 page "report" describing what's in the bill section by section. The text of the bill is the second link. It seems counterintuitive because of file sizes but the "report" has a fancy cover page bloating the file size.

Look at the “Buy America” provisions. This is so much more stringent than the 1935 Buy America Act — it is the same provision as the original stimulus bill — and caused much confusion in its implementation.

OK Obama is a communist, an idiot, brainwashed anti-American saboteur whose voters are clueless sheep.

But what in heavens name is wrong with “Buy American”?

Sheesh. We should have been demanding it.

Section 374 prohibits certain acts by employers, including this:

(2) fail or refuse to consider for employment, or fail or refuse to hire, an individual as an employee because of the individual's status as unemployed;
If this becomes law, anyone with a job opening (there won't be any, don't worry) basically could be committing a federal crime, and opening themselves to investigation by Holder and the Justice Department if they don't hire the first unemployed person that walks in and applies for the open job.

To turn down an unemployed person, you must be ready to defend yourself against a charge that you "refused to hire them based on their status as unemployed."

Obama and his socialist minions will be able to review every hiring decision under a new, more open criteria (they already can review every hiring decision based on other "equal employment opportunity" laws). This just adds one more class, "the unemployed" to the protected classes that must be hired on the spot when they apply for a job, or you'l have to be prepared for a lawsuit and federal investigation.

Section 374 is great for employment, but only in China, Mexico and other countries that are beyond the jurisdiction and reach of this law.

Of course, nowhere did We the People give the federal government the authority to inject themselves into hiring decisions. There is no authority enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution which allows this. But this President doesn't care, and neither does this Congress. Those limits are meaningless to these clowns, and the courts have gone along with this progressive expansion of federal authority for over a century.
