    Hmm...this kind of surprised me. And why is Harry delaying the bill? If it really will create jobs, don't we need it right now?

      First of all there is no "bill" or at least not one that has yet been submitted to congress. Second, this bill that will eventually be submitted is a repeat of what was submitted before and that too didn't have demicrat support. It's convenient for libs to blame republicans for obstructionism but the truth is there ate elections coming and these democrats would like to keep their jobs, that means distancing themselves from Obama and his policies. Of course Americans feelings might change if this administration would follow the advice of James Carville:

    "There is resistance to moving the legislation as a single piece. Some want to break it up into parts that can pass."

    They know that nothing Obama proposes will get by the Republican House...nothing--even if they have supported it in the past-- so, the R's butts must be kissed, and placated. The Kings of NO  must be revered and bowed down to.
    Then, they will deign to POSSIBLY go along. But ONLY if you give them 2 things they want for every one they allow you to have.
