    and other blogs from R's who say that the House has already passed jobs bills, and the Senate won't take them up.

    What jobs bills are they talking about?

    Are they just the "cut taxes" kind of things, or is there any substance to them?

    And if there isn't any substance to them, why aren't Democrats pushing back on the lies? I'm sick of reading that the House passed jobs bills and the Democratic Senate won't consider them. If they aren't REALLY jobs bills, why can't the Dems get out in front of the falsehoods?

    Why are they so afraid to tell the truth about things when their opponents have nothing but lies?

      Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
