AynRandy Filibusters Bill to Bring American Jobs Home

Guess the Tribble-Toupeed One doesn't think it's his job to bring jobs to Kentucky any more than Mitchie-poo does.

Down with Tyranny:

When the worst of the Republican crackpot extremists in the Senate tried to filibuster John Walsh's Bring Jobs Home Act (S.2569) even Ted Cruz looked at them like they were crazy. The bill "amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) grant business taxpayers a tax credit for up to 20% of insourcing expenses incurred for eliminating a business located outside the United States and relocating it within the United States, and (2) deny a tax deduction for outsourcing expenses incurred in relocating a U.S. business outside the United States. Requires an increase in the taxpayer's employment of full-time employees in the United States in order to claim the tax credit for insourcing expenses." In other words this bill-- which was cosponsored by two dozen Democrats, from progressives like Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Merkely, Brian Schatz and Tammy Baldwin to conservatives like Joe Manchin, Chris Coons, Claire McCaskill and Mark Pryor-- does just what the titles implies, incentivizes businesses to bring jobs back to America. Who wouldn't want that?

Glad you asked. Every single senator was there and cloture passed 93-7. The 7 filibustering extremists and obstructionists:
Ron Johnson (R-WI)
Rand Paul (R-KY)
Mike Lee (R-UT)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
Lindsay Graham (R-SC)
Pat Roberts (R-KS)
