In surprising bipartisan move, Republicans stop being Republican and help pass jobs bill

job search

Get those red pencils from the '90s ready!

Hell may have frozen over yesterday when a $15 billion bill spurring job growth passed yesterday, 70 to 28, thanks to a bipartisan coalition of 55 Democrats, 2 independents and 13 Republicans.

The Times reports that the central element of the bill is giving companies who hire unemployed Americans an exemption from paying payroll taxes on those workers through the end of this year.

Happy job hunting, you lucky 25 million!

  1. 15 Billion in a multi-trillion dollar economy, lol? The first 2 stimulus bills (Bush-Obama) totaled $939 BILLION and had virtually no affect. Another $15 Billion? Seriously? Just more Hopium for the masses.
