Couldn't have been that great a bill if the dems won't pass it either

Obama's jobs bill falls to pieces in Congress

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's job-creation package effectively fell to pieces on Monday as a top Republican lawmaker said the House of Representatives will only pass portions of the $447 billion measure.
As Obama continued to press lawmakers for a vote on his signature legislation, Representative Eric Cantor, the No. 2 House Republican, said that was not going to happen.
Asked if the bill as a complete package was dead, Cantor said: "Yes."
The bill appeared to be in trouble in the Democratic-controlled Senate as well, where aides from both parties said it will likely fail when it comes up for a vote later this month.

Reid is actively blocking the bill in the Senate. That won't stop them and the media from blaming the Republicans though.
