The tax breaks and projected jobs in the Senate jobs bill are illusory. The $17 billion package circumvents pay-go rules. But no matter. The Senate passed the Porkulus II today by 68-29 — with support from 11 Republicans.

Here’s the roll call vote:

The Republicans who sided with the endless spending-spree Democrats:

Alexander
Bond
Scott Brown
Burr
Cochran
Collins
Inhofe
LeMieux
Murkowski
Snowe
Voinovich

GOP Sen. Gregg wondered on the Senate floor before the vote:

Much of the bill is financed over the coming decade by cracking down on offshore tax havens, though it would add $13 billion to the debt in the coming three years.

“When are we going to stop spending money around here as if there’s no tomorrow?” said Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H. “Because pretty soon there’s going to be no tomorrow for our children as we add this debt to their backs.”

Tell it to your 11 GOP colleagues who supported more generational theft…

Obama is giddy:

President Barack Obama is thanking lawmakers ā€” and Republicans especially ā€” for their help sending him a jobs bill…He said he looked forward to bipartisan support on other measures in Congress.
