    With millions of Americans out of work, the Senate voted 73-26 to pass the so-called JOBS Act today. The bill, however, will do nothing to create good jobs and stabilize the U.S. economy. Instead, it will deregulate Wall Street voiding investor protections put in place after Enron and the 2008 financial crisis to protect the retirement savings of Americas workers from fraud and other risks.One amendment, sponsored by Senators Merkley and Bennet, did pass and was included in the bill. While the amendment will add some investor protections, it is not sufficient to counterbalance the vast harm that the...

    I know what you’re thinking, but let me save you some time. I’ve already reported him to Attack Watch. “My bill is not the president’s bill, it’s a real job creator,” Gohmert told The Hill, shortly after filing his two-page alternative to the president’s plan, under the same title.Gohmert said that he read the president’s 155-page jobs plan, when it was emailed to lawmakers on Monday afternoon.Calling the president’s plan a “disaster,” Gohmert said that he checked to see “who filed the ‘American Jobs Act’ for the president, here in the House, since we had to do it ‘now, right...
  • American Jobs Act is a political farce

    As expected, President Obamas jobs speech was full of political pabulum and worn out Democrat talking points straight out of the Bolshevik takeover of Russia. I predicted earlier this week, the presidents plan would be little more than a speech. He has no plan to send congress so that they can pass it now as the president repeated seventeen times during his speech. Mr. President, if passing a bill, which doesnt exist, is so important why did you wait almost three years to take action? Furthermore, why is there no bill for Congress to take action on? President Obama...
