ASSOCIATED PRESS: Senate Democrats Rewrite Obama’s Jobs Bill: “Senate Democrats are scrambling to rewrite portions of President Barack Obama’s jobs bill as they seek elusive party unity around the measure even as Obama tries to pin the blame squarely on Republicans for Congress’ failure to act. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell moved to call the president’s bluff Tuesday by pushing for a quick Senate vote on the bill, but Democratic leader Harry Reid derailed the effort as all sides maneuvered for position in a potentially defining battle in the 2012 presidential campaign.”
The one thing that’s certain is that no jobs will be created, though a few politicians hope that their jobs will be saved. . . .
