Explain to me then, why did the Republicans shoot down the recent bi-partisan Veteran's Job Act, to give soldiers who are returning home jobs in the police forces and forestry industries? This was even co-written by some Repubs, who then voted it down. Was this Obama's fault for not crossing the line? Or was it Republicans who did not want to help create jobs, which would have looked good for the current administration? A compromise to assist our fighting men and women, AND help the economy, and the Repubs shot it down. Why?
