Dick Durbin Admits Democrats Don’t Have the Votes to Pass Obama’s Latest Jobs Bill Stimulus

Do you remember this nonsense?

Obama urged Congress to pass his jobs bill stimulus 17 times in one speech.
Now we know he doesn’t have enough votes. Democrats don’t want it either.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) announced yesterday that democrats don’t have the votes to pass Obama’s latest jobs bill stimulus.
The Hill reported, via HotAir:

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said that, at the moment, Democrats don’t have the votes to pass President Obama’s jobs bill, but Durbin added that that would change.

“Not at the moment, I don’t think we do but, uh, we can work on it,” Durbin said according to Chicago radio station WLS…

“The oil-producing state senators don’t like eliminating or reducing the subsidy for oil companies, “Durbin said. “There are some senators who are up for election who say I’m never gonna vote for a tax increase while I’m up for election, even on the wealthiest people. So, we’re not gonna have 100% Democratic senators. That’s why it needs to be bi-partisan and I hope we can find some Republicans who will join us to make it happen.”
