Safe Mode: On
Proof Republicans Don't Care About You

Here’s just a short list of
some of the bills that Republicans have blocked, or attempted to block,
since Obama became President:
Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas-
A bill that would have eliminated a tax break that companies get when
they ship jobs overseas. Republicans blocked this, allowing companies to
keep the tax break they receive when they ship jobs to other countries.
Political Ad disclosure bill- Would have required all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves. Republicans blocked this, not once but twice.


Subpoena Power for the Committee investigating the BP Oil Spill
– Give subpoena power to the independent committee responsible for
investigating BP’s roll in the oil spill. Republicans attempted to block
this.
The Small Business Jobs Act
-would give LOCAL, community banks access to billions of dollars to
loan to s

  • "The DREAM Act- Gives
    immigrant youth who were brought here as children a path to citizenship
    by earning a college degree or serving the military for 2 years.
    Republicans blocked this"

    How typical, you completely left out the fact that they are ILLEGALS who were brought here ILLEGALLY by their parents. Why the hell are they entitled to our tax dollars for college especially when American students are strugging themselves?

  • There are legitimate reasons for non-liberal positions on each of these bills.
    Just because a bill has a flowery name such as "Dream Act" does not mean its good for the country.

    If there was a bill called "Save the Cute Puppies and Bunnies Bill" and it contained massive spending for whacky-do-nothing projects, well then I would oppose that bill too.

    But then you liberals would attack me, screaming that I must hate puppies and bunnies.

    Face it libtards, your schtick is old More..

      Exactly right, wharris. It is exactly this kind of lefty spin that skulls full of mush like peterjames2009 buy into fully.

      Thinking people who do the research understand the meme that congress uses to make bills sound all 'light and fluffy' with line-items that have nothing to do with the title of the legislation.

  • Unfair post. You need to list the entire bill and WHY the Republicans blocked it. Most of these are due to tangent add-ons, no financing, etc...

  • lol, In a Democrat controlled house and senate. Also a list of what Obama said he would or wouldn't pass and what he actually did would be quite interesting. He renewed the Patriot Act, promised to veto the NDAA and than passed it no question.

  • What you don't see in the titles of these bills are the add-ons to the bill which in many cases have nothing to do with the bill itself and do more harm than the rest of the bill does good. Its a political ploy to make the other party look bad.

  • If you think the Dems aren't just as pro-big business, you're delusional.

    It was a Democrat who caused the housing market collapse. The Democrats continue to refuse to fix the problem.

    Neither party gives a flying fuck about the American people.

      No, Clinton is who I'm referring to. He made it possible for banks to make money whether a mortgage was paid or not. They could lend money to people they knew had no income or assets to speak of and know that they'd turn a profit even if the owners had to foreclose.

      Look up the Glass-Steagall Act.

      GWB definitely didn't help matters, but Clinton made the whole thing possible.

      We're both talking about the same thing. If Glass-Steagall had remained law, the collapse never could have happened.

  • How about the full text of the bill? Sometimes it isnt the main content of the bill rejected, but those little riders that have nothing to do with the bill.

    For example, they mayhave a bill to add more food programs for the poor but then add a rider to ban all handguns.

    When one side rejects it because of the gun ban rider, the other complains "they dont want the poor to eat!"

  • I liked how you sum up the Affordable Health Care Act in one paragraph. Its 2000 pages of new taxes and government take over of yet another industry... but you sum it up as insurance companies having to spend 85% of their $ on health care. keep drinking that kool aid!

  • That fact you think your government needs to 'care about YOU' because you are to fucking stupid and weak to take care of yourself says a lot.

    Democrat voters are drooling cultist parasites.
