Has bipartisan support inside and outside Congress
Senate immigration legislation is the "Obama-Reid plan to give illegal immigrants amnesty."

Report doesn't predict layoffs
"The CBO’s latest report confirms what Republicans have been saying for years now. Under Obamacare, millions of hardworking Americans will lose their jobs."
Then why did Congress intervene?
"Why is President Obama unnecessarily delaying your flight? FAA could cut other spending."
Employment tenure has increased
"Over the last 20 years, the world has changed. It used to be that one could make a career out of working for one company. Today, the average worker stays at his or her job for barely four years."
Lots of exaggeration
Because of the health care act, "The people who have health care and like it in this county are not going to be able to keep what they have."
A projection, not a promise
President Obama pushed through the stimulus "based on the promise of keeping unemployment under 8 percent."
Rhetoric outstrips reality
The jobs bill includes "President Obama's tax on soup kitchens"
But he's misinterpreting data.
Letting the Bush tax cuts expire would raise taxes on small businesses.
Promise or a bad projection?
"We were promised. The president said we would keep unemployment under 8.5 percent (if the stimulus passed)."
