The bill would have provided for
- a large cut in payroll taxes for the middle class, leaving more take-home pay of spendable income
- extending unemployment benefits
- funding for job training
- $35 billion for states to rehire laid-off teachers, police and firefighters.
This would affect only one tenth of one percent (0.1%) of Americans. But the Regressive republicans don't care about the US economy, the middle class, jobs, or small businesses. They have proven, once again, that they only care about the very richest one tenth of one percent of the population. Every Republican voted against this economy-saving, completely paid for jobs bill. Remember this next year at election time. And send this blog to all your Regressive republican friends.
