The Job Reality Is Starting to Sink In (Sen. Bob Casey)

When the majority leader said yesterday that he didn’t think the votes were there, he is about a good of a counter is there is out there. I think there is a lot of time in the next couple of days. Even though in most places six days isn't a long time, in a legislative body like the US Senate it can be a lifetime. I think there is still a lot of work to do.

I think this hearing was also an opportunity for the companies to demonstrate that they get it with regard to taxpayer concern and things that taxpayers insist upon like a real commitment to using the money in an appropriate way to get to fuel efficiency. I think increasingly that the job reality is starting to sink in.
