But in a bizarre twist, AP-“the Senate turned back a proposal to add $25 billion for public works projects, a rejection engineered by Republicans critical of the bill's size and voicing skepticism of its ability to create jobs." Republicans may not really under stand the concept of “a stimulus plan,” the kind that would create new jobs and reconstruct our crumbling infrastructure. The Republicans turned down new construction on highways, mass transit and water treatment facilities.
Sens. Dianne Feinstein, and Patty Murray argued the increase would quickly translate into jobs.
But Sen. Jim Inhofe countered, "We can't add to the size of this bill. ... The amount is just inconceivable to most people."
What the HELL! Why aren’t the impotent Democratic Senators shouting from the highest hill top about this outrageous act of idiocy? They can’t add jobs …in a jobs bill?
