    Default American Jobs Act

    The word is now that the Ds are going to try to break this bill up into smaller pieces in hopes of getting some parts of it passed. Wonder if that also means they will actually have to read this one

    Colin Hanna of The Washington Times is concerned about this provision:

    The most recent example, and there are plenty of others, is the approach he has taken to the American Jobs Act, which he argues is needed to get America back to work. He wants Congress to pass it now - as he repeats like a broken record - without the public having had an adequate chance to look it over. Most people are unaware, for example, that there is a provision in the proposed bill that would create a new cause of action allowing people to sue a prospective employer if they believe they were turned down for a position because they were unemployed at the time they applied for it.

    Such a law, if it were to go into effect, would be a welcome boon to the nationís trial lawyers but would be a looming liability over anyone seeking to hire new employees. The cost of litigation, never mind the potential financial judgments, would be enough to make any business - small or large - fearful of hiring anyone, let alone any of the more than 9 percent of Americans who, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, donít have a job but are looking for one. Talk about unintended consequences.

    Obama's jobs act is nothing more than another keynesian nocturnal emission.

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
    Another day older and
    deeper in debt.
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to Barack Obama's store.

    Hopefully the jobs bill will work, and put some people back to work.

    Its not going to pass and if it does, it will only put you back to work if you belong to a union.

    During his speech "presenting" the bill, Obama talked about teachers and construction workers. He's buying votes from the unions so he can get re-elected.

    This bill needs to be broken a part. I am sure there are a few good parts but in its entirety its going to be garbage.

    I guess those who hate unions would rather cut their nose off to spite their faces. Why will it benefit union folks, because a lot of construction trades are union? I guess putting the concept of putting people to work helping the general economy and only benefits union folks.

    I say, lets not invest in anything - infrastructure, education, research. After-all that creates exactly zero jobs. Making sure the wealthy don't pay taxes (you know the job creators) is our road to prosperity.

    The so-called "Jobs" bill is nothing more than a paper mache bridge over an ever rising river of debt. It is designed to save only one job.

    I don't know what's more pathetic today...all of the keynesians in Europe on hands and knees waiting for a vote in Slovakia or B. Milhous Obama's fraudulent (hand) jobs bill working its way through Congress. Both are disgusting.

    And if the Occupy Wall Street crowd's going house hunting today I suggest they look up the address of Benocide The Ber-Nank and pay him a visit. While they're at it they should also look up the address of my favorite little keynesian (and former Enron consultant) little Pauly Krugman. Pay him a visit, too.

    I'd trust Jeffrey Dahmer before I'd trust either Bernanke or Krugman.

    Whatever group(s) it puts to work will be more people working than are working now. And, more people working will benefit the economy as a whole.
