    Senate Democrats still have not decided when to take up the jobs bill President Barack Obama announced with great fanfare to a joint session of Congress almost two weeks ago."

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appeared testy at a news conference Tuesday when asked about the schedule for the bill and whether all Democrats would support it.

    "Listen, we're not going to get into a lot of hypotheticals here," he said. "The floor is pretty well jammed now. The president's around the country making a case for his jobs bill. The Democratic caucus feels comfortable with his jobs bill. We're very happy with the speech he gave yesterday talking about deficit reduction."

    How funny... if it weren't so pathetic.

    Obama drones on and on about "pass my jobs bill now" and how the Republicans are obstructing...

    ...while Harry Ried says "the floor is pretty well jammed now" - meaning that the Democrats are too busy to bother with jobs - Jobs? Jobs? We don't need no stinking jobs!

    And besides he is well satisfied with Obama speechifying in lieu of anything actually being done. :laugh:

    What a sick joke on the poor unemployed that hung their hopes on "the one" actually coming up with a plan while golfing and relaxing on his Labor Day week long vacation.

    The bill is 155 pages. How long do you think a congressman should have to read and understand it?

    Oh, wait, maybe you are being sarcastic?

    Not being the least sarcastic!

    Why should a bill be 155 pages! way to much info - too many loopholes, too many exceptions, too much...

    No wonder BO said "pass it now!"

    I would expect a Congressman to take a week to read, study and understand such a extensive proposal.
