BREAKING: Senate Republicans filibustered the Bring Jobs Home Act today July 30 ,2014. The bill received 54 votes, short of the 60 needed.

Senate Republicans Vote Against American Jobs By Blocking Bill To End Outsourcing Tax Breaks


Senate Republicans blocked a bill today that would potentially bring millions of jobs back to the United States by refusing to end tax breaks for companies who outsource jobs.

The roll call vote failed to get the needed 60 votes by a margin of 54-42. Millions of jobs have been outsourced over the past decade in part because companies can get a tax break on their expenses related to sending jobs overseas. The Bring Jobs Home Act would have ended these tax breaks, and give companies who bring jobs home a 20% tax credit.
Before the vote Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said:


Quite frankly, a vote against this bill is a vote against American jobs. There is absolutely no excuse, no justification for any member of this body to vote against this legislation. But as of late, Senate Republicans have repeatedly blocked legislation, much like the Bring Jobs Home Act, that is good for the American people. That brings me back to the Longfellow quote that I mentioned at the beginning of my remarks: “It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.” I see the wisdom in that quote each and every time another good bill is blocked by Senate Republicans.

Funk--Executive Orders. If President Obama is abusing his position with all of these EOs than why did the last 3 republican presidents have a combined number of 838;if you include Ford's 2.5 years in office the number is 1007 EOs. They call them MEN OF ACTION.

well did the executive orders stop the legislative process? I would say no because it seems there is no process currently to speak of.
So where these executive orders avoidable?
One would also say no.
