Barack Obama Says He Wants His Jobs Bill Back … LOL, He’s the Only One Who Wants It, Including Democrats
PASS THE JOBS BILL, PASS THE JOBS BILL, PASS THE JOBS BILL PASS THE JOBS BILL, PASS THE JOBS BILL. A note to President Obama, they heard you the first time, no one wants to touch your toxic jobs bill or you for that matter.
President Barack Obama lectured Congress that he wanted them to pass his so-called jobs bill now, of course that was three weeks ago. To date, not only hasn’t Obama’s “son of stimulus” jobs bill not been passed, no one really wants any part of it including Democrats.
During this weeks Presidential Address, Barack Obama whined for Congress to get their act together and pass his jobs bill. Obama stated that he wanted it back. Trust us Mr. President, no one took it. Really Mr. President you want them to pass the jobs bill? Is there an echo, or are you stuttering? You might want to take the hint that no one really wants to pass it. However, Barack Obama might want to take a complete look as to who is holding up his jobs legislation.
“It’s been almost three weeks since I sent the American Jobs Act to Congress – three weeks since I sent them a bill that would put people back to work and put money in people’s pockets,” Obama said. “And now I want it back. It is time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law.”
Obama’s nearly $450 billion jobs bill – known as the American Jobs Act – would raise taxes on the wealthy, invest in infrastructure, extend the employee payroll-tax cut and fund unemployment insurance benefits, among other things.
Barack Obama, the most devisive President ever does nothing but blame Republicans during his weekly address for not passing his jobs bill. However, it is the Democrat controlled US Senate and Dick Durbin (IL-D) that tells Obama they do not have the votes. So why isn’t Barack Obama calling out Democrats like Durbin and Chucky Schumer for not passing the jobs bill? Hmm? As stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, will Obama blame Democrats when the jobs legislation fails?
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said, at the moment, Democrats in Congress don’t have the votes to pass President Obama’s jobs bill, but Durbin added that that situation would change.
“Not at the moment, I don’t think we do, but, uh, we can work on it,” Durbin said, according to Chicago radio station WLS.
Durbin added that the president’s bill would need bipartisan support because there are senators both on the left and the right opposed to aspects of it.
The real story here is not Obama’s joke of a jobs bill … its the fact that Democrats who have previously walked the plank for Obamacare and the $787 billion stimulus are AWOL on this and will remain so. Sorry CNN, but this is not just an issue between Obama and the GOP, there are plenty of Democrats against Obama’s job legislation. The 2012 elections are right around the corner and Dems are already looking to distance themselves from Obama. That tends to happen when a President has an approval rating in the low 40′s and one with dealing with the economy in the low 30′s.
