Draft of Senate Jobs Bill Now AvailableFebruary 9, 2010 - by Donny Shaw
A draft copy of the Senate Democrats jobs bill has been uploaded to Scribdb. Read it for yourself here.
We’ll have more on exactly what’s in it later. Major Garret is tweeting some details:
To clarify, total package spends out at $135 bn; costs $85 bn due to increased taxes via $50 bn in closed “loopholes.”
Bill would also extend Patriot Act for 1-year and provide 7-month Medicare reimbursement “doctor fix.”
Other parts: $15 bn for infrastructure, $35 bn in extended tax breaks, 3-month unemployment insurance/COBRA extension = $35 bn
