Can you believe it? A bill almost got passed that would have stopped the tax incentives for companies to ship jobs overseas. It would have given them the same incentives to keep the jobs here in the U.S. Of course it was a Democrat that presented the bill and naturally the Republicans voted "no" because that is what they do. They said it was just a political ploy to get votes.
A law is a law, no matter why it was created! Do you and I care why, if it created jobs for those in the U.S.? Of course not. Should the Republicans have cared either? No! They should have cared for the people who would have gotten those jobs. Instead they cared only for big business. Little things like jobs are what brings down unemployment or maybe they haven't heard about that in their rush to regain the Congress to do more of the same things that helped get us in this fix to begin with.
