Democrats and Republicans Can Only Agree on Legislation That Doesn’t Work


The “jobs bill” unveiled today — which was supposed to be voted on this week, but won’t be, because it snowed yesterday — is expected to receive some rare support from Republicans since it centers around tax breaks for businesses that hire new employees. Except that experts say those tax breaks aren’t much of an incentive to hire new employees, and therefore won’t result in many new jobs. All those unemployed people will probably be happy that Congress is finally cooperating, though. [AP via ABC News]
