Leadership Reid Style

The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) lacks the votes to begin debating his targeted jobs bill, according to sources monitoring the legislation.

Reid needs 60 votes to open debate on the $15 billion jobs bill. The vote is scheduled for Monday, when lawmakers return from the Presidents Day recess.

“I understand Reid does not have the votes for cloture on Monday on his jobs bill,” one source said.

A Reid spokesman said the vote is in the hands of Republicans. Democrats have 59 senators in their conference.

$15 billion dollars is like throwing a pebble into the Pacific Ocean. How asinine is this proposal? The key to it is a $13 billion dollar tax credit businesses can claim if they hire someone who has been unemployed for 60 days. No infrastructure, no extension of unemployment benefits, no jobs. Not looking too promising. Re-elect Harry Reid!!
