Dems Rip Crapo, Risch Jobs Bill Vote

Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch have chosen to play "partisan games" over supporting a bill that would have created some 6,200 jobs in Idaho, the state Democratic Party said today. The Republicans voted against bill Thursday to funding teaching and first responders' jobs. "It is pretty obvious that the Republicans don’t want to do anything to improve the economy before the 2012 elections,” state party chairman Larry Grant said. “But the only way we are going to help the people of Idaho is if our lawmakers do the job they were elected to and fund education and infrastructure. Idahoans don’t need political games, they need jobs”/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.\

Question: Do you agree/disagree with the position that Idaho's U.S. senators took on jobs bill?
