Barack Obama Says Pass the Jobs Bill Now … Senate Dem Dick Durbin Says They Will Wait Until October


Democrats tell Obama they will not pass this bill right away. Maybe this time Democrats will understand the bill completely rather than following Nancy Pelosi’s famous words that “we must pass the bill in order to find out what’s in it.”

President Barack Obama stated during his jobs speech during the joint session of Congress and during his subsequent shilling of his jobs act that it must be passed now. He has tried to play party politics and class warfare instead of actually trying to help fix the economy. The Obama WH is trying to paint the GOP as obstructionists, yet what would cause Obama to wait nearly 3 years into his first term to pass a bill that is supposedly to important and crucial to the economy?

Obama lectures every one that they should pass his jobs bill right away.

However, it is not just the Republicans that have an issue with Obama’s jobs bill, Democrats are balking too. In fact one of the head Democrats in the Democrat controlled Senate, Dick Durbin (D-IL), said that they will look at the Presidents plan in October.  It would appear that the Democrats are not following Obama’s comments and blindly following another Obama jobs bill, son of stimulus, to no where.

The Senate likely will not take up President Obama’s plan to create jobs until next month following a planned recess period, the No. 2 Democrat in the chamber said Sunday.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said the Senate would focus on a number of “related issues” to the $400 billion job-creation legislation this week. But he quickly noted on CNN that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has placed the massive jobs bill “on the calendar.”

This might just be the first step by Democrats in distancing themselves from Obama and his poor job approval ratings. In 2012 Democrats will have to explain the $787 billion stimulus and Obamacare to voters, do they really want to have to defend ‘son of stimulus”?

      “we must pass the bill in order to find out what’s in it.”

      Just like Obama’s presidency. Those who voted for him had to elect him before knowing “what was in it”. We now know it was….Zero.

      whoa little mule !!!! not only did Solyndra fall flat after receiving hal a billion dollars. Evergreen, Spectra Watt, Mountain Plaza, and Olsen’s Mill all received millions approved by none other than Hussein Obama and all have failed.

      A pile of paper is a jobs bill not! The chatty
      little guy has nothing to offer but chaff. What
      he’s really doing is crying for more spending
      money (what, half a trillion?). The mention of
      the word ‘jobs’ is simply and extension of the
      smoke and mirrors chain of lies we’ve been
      getting in lieu of representation and protection.
