Cat-herder-in-Chief Harry Reid is ready to get to work on job creation:
“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled a vote on a jobs package for next week…Reid (D-Nev.) and other Democratic leaders unveiled their jobs agenda Thursday, a plan they say will begin creating work for the nearly 7 million people who have lost employment since the start of the recession.
Reid said he would bring the first of several jobs bills to the Senate floor on Feb. 8 and hopes to pass it through the chamber by Feb. 12, when lawmakers are scheduled to start the Presidents Day recess.”
Just a few loose ends to tie up first:
“But Reid and other leaders declined to discuss key details, such as how much the package would cost, how many jobs it would create and how it would be paid for. Reid had yet to secure a Republican co-sponsor for the package.”
“Key details?” So, other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

A Republican co-sponsor??? Is Reid for real? He will find Bigfoot before a he finds any Republican support. Unless this bill is to help fat-cats or to further disenfranchise the poor, then he can forget thier support.
If I were the Democrats I would publically call for their support and when they refuse, use it in every political commercial in the 2010 race.
