Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Here's President Obama's address one year ago on the eve of introducing the American Jobs Act. His words are just as spot-on today as they were one year ago:

And we all know what happened. The Republicans filibustered it in the Senate and Mitch McConnell gloated: “The truth of the matter is, most Democrats know just as well as I do that passing another stimulus and tax hike is a lousy idea...”
(FYI: Only Tester and Nelson voted with the Republicans and it includes a tax cut for middle class families and small businesses.)

And John Boehner refused to bring it up in the House.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Fast forward one year to today. Joblessness is still unacceptably high and Romney's campaign is (supposed to be) all about jobs.

So I hope and pray that when Congress re-convenes for its short session this week, Harry Reid re-introduces it. Right now. In the middle of the campaign. With everyone watching.

Let the Republicans explain why they are voting against 2 million jobs and a tax cut. If they oppose it, we take back the House. If they reverse themselves and support it, the country wins and Obama looks like a strong leader.

Please...let's not let this one get away!
