      Obama did propose a bill. Some Democratic Senators did not like the way his bill paid for the expenditures, so they want to change just that aspect of the overall bill.

      McConnell just wanted to embarrass the President by forcing a scenerio whereby certain Democrats would not vote for the bill. The the Republicans could then say there was BI-PARTISAN support to kill the bill. I.e., no one likes it and the President is a fool for wasting his time.

      Hey dumb dumbs, if tax cuts created jobs, we would have so many jobs that we would glady let the illegals come in.

        Obama Immediately went on the campaign trail  saying the gop had to pass his bill. There was no bill. there will be no bill. The dems didn't like it and would not sponsor it. So McConnell took advantange of the poor coordination. They need to get their campaign act together if they do not want to be embarrass themsleves. Or stop trying to be so clever.

        "McConnell just wanted to embarrass the President by forcing a scenerio whereby certain Democrats would not vote for the bill. "

        Exactly

          No party discipline. All ego. Bill has to suit them perfectly, or they'll be happy to let nothing happen.
