Because as long as Obama is in the White House we can't have a growing economy, we can't decrease the deficit (even though Obama promised to cut it in half), and as long as Obama keeps paying off the Unions, we will never fix our education system.
The number 1 priority was correct, and it should continue to be number 1.

Of course, you are correct. But the question is WHY didn't any of them vote for it.
The reason, of course, was that Republicans tacked on some amendments with all the normal baggage that Dems would never vote for and as a result they all voted no.
If it had went to the senate as originally written, it would have passed with a majority.
