The jobs bill may be headed for the unemployment line after an unlikely coalition raised enough hell about the legislation to force House leaders to scrap a planned Friday vote.
More objections have come out of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to put the bill’s future in doubt, even though the same legislation sailed through the Senate in a 70-28 vote.
Opponents say the bill concentrates more on tax breaks for business than creating jobs and some say it’s a joke to even call the legislation a “jobs bill.”
Democratic leaders will try to regroup and shore up support for another try at a vote next week.
