    WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats scrapped a bipartisan jobs bill in favor of one they say is leaner and focused solely on putting Americans back to work, and they're all but daring Republicans to vote against it.

    The new, stripped-down proposal followed criticism that the bipartisan version wouldn't create many jobs.

    The switch brought sharp accusations of reneging from Republicans who thought they had a deal, jeopardizing a brief attempt at bipartisan lawmaking.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's latest bill focuses on several popular provisions aimed at boosting job creation, including a new tax break negotiated with Republicans for companies that hire unemployed workers and for small businesses that purchase new equipment. It also would renew highway programs and help states and local governments finance large infrastructure projects.

    Bipartisanship is just a word used by the establishment to make people think it's a good thing when both worthless and corrupt parties agree on how to loot our treasure and pilage our nation.

    The only Jobs Bill that will produce Jobs is a massive Tax Cut for Middle Class Americans.
