Pass a Jobs Bill

The official unemployment rate sits at 9.2 %. This is not because President Obama is a reckless spending socialist, or because of "Job Killing Obamacare". No, this is because the Republican Party is hell-bent on preventing President Obama from being reelected, because they are determined, no matter the human cost, no matter the treasonous means, to make the Obama Presidency a failure.

Where is your jobs bill Mr. Speaker? WHERE ARE THE JOBS? How about you the "Patriot" Freshmen members of Congress? We-the true Patriots, demand the Government take action, demand our infrastructure be improved and modernized, demand unemployment benefits be extended, demand our Veterans-who deserve more than we could ever give, are employed, are given the tools needed to succeed at home.

This shouldn't be about politics, about partisanship, about spending, or about deficits. People...AMERICANS...are suffering. Americans are going hungry, are going without health care, without peace of mind, without happiness, without HOPE. The Private Sector alone will not solve this problem. Compassion, altruism-they don't make appearances in the budgets of most corporations. They sadly are content with not simply getting by with less, but with making more with less. In other words, they have no incentive to hire.

No, the Government must take action, and we demand it.

President Obama has asked Congress to act.

America is demanding Congress act.

I hope we're asking this for the last time

Where are the Jobs?

      I sign because most Americans, like me, want jobs--not the obfuscation of the GOP or the LET'S MAKE SURE OBAMA IS A ONE-TERM PRESIDENT garbage!

      I am a registered Republican and I am disgusted with my party's inability to see past political lines to help the people of this country. President Obama is doing his best to assist those who would like to work, but the Rebublican party is thwarting his every move.

      We NEED Jobs! Stop the united obstruction.

      Rich people SHOULD HAVE to pay the SAME RATE as poor people...example: if poor people pay a tax rate of about 10%, then why do the rich only have to pay about 1%. I am not saying that is the exact rate, but you get the idea. It is not fair. This jobs bill will not ONLY open up more jobs, BUT WILL help the economy. The rich need to remember that they NEED poor and middle class people. If there were no poor or middle class people there would be no rich. Someone has to give and take. The United States is off balance right now...REMEMBER: United WE Stand, Divided WE Fall.
