Democrat ploy to divide Republicans puts jobs bill in jeopardy

Friday, March 16, 2012


Senate Democrats are hoping to drive a wedge between Capitol Hill Republicans by attaching a contentious measure to reauthorize the Export-Import (ExIm) Bank to a popular jobs bill that passed the House last week by a wide margin.

“Their plan isn’t to work together to make it easier to create jobs, but to look for ways to make it easier to keep their own,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R –Ky.).

“They want to pick a fight rather than get this bill to the president’s desk. Then use it for campaign ads in the run-up to the November elections,” McConnell said.

The Hill Wednesday reported that Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) hopes to divide tea party conservatives from other Republicans by highlighting ideological splits within the party.
