U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor pitches jobs legislation

LITTLE ROCK — Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor is supporting legislation to limit tax breaks for companies that move operations overseas and to require most publicly financed projects to use American-made steel and iron as he faces a tough re-election fight.

The two-term lawmaker from Arkansas on Friday unveiled a package of bills he says are aimed at creating more jobs. Part of the package includes legislation already introduced in the Senate that would prevent companies from deducting expenses related to moving operations to a foreign country.

Pryor is also sponsoring separate proposals requiring federal agencies to use American-made steel and iron in projects unless they can justify a waiver, and creating a voluntary labeling system to identify American goods.

Pryor is being challenged by Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton.

Pryor's starting to act like a conservative now. Incumbents will do anything to hang on to their seat. If reelected, they revert to their old ways. Both sides do it. Vote out all incumbents. It was never intended to be a lifelong job. We need term limits on these career politicians.

This is too little too late. We remember that Pryor supports Obama, Biden, and Pelosi. We reverently remember the Alamo and 9/11; however, this nation will try to forget what Obama has done to it and the devastating residual effects to be realized in years to come. What a shame that Pryor had to be a part of it. I advised him to distance himself from Obama.
.
This insurance catastrophe will be hitting everybody soon except the welfare group. That is what Obama intended from the beginning. When you cozy up to Obama, you make a deal with Socialism or worse. It's bad enough to be ignorant and incompetent, but Socialism, Communism, and Nazism are not acceptable.
