WASHINGTON -- The Senate on Tuesday rejected by a single vote Sen. Maria Cantwell's amendment to provide extended federal unemployment benefits to 47,000 Washington workers and more than 1 million others nationwide.
The vote came as the chamber moved toward passage of a $170 billion corporate tax bill that would benefit Boeing, Microsoft and other U.S. exporters and help defuse a mounting trade dispute with the European Union.
What's really funny is Kerry's 10 million new jobs promise is by way of corporate tax cuts. So here they give away a huge corp tax cut, and Kerry promises to give away even more... this is a new direction? not!
