Obama Wants Congress To Pass Jobs Bill Immediately
President Obama is challenging Congress to act right now on his jobs plan Monday. Holding a copy of the bill in back of the Rose Garden, the President demanded that there is no games or politics being played by either party.
The President said the $447 billion package would help firefighters, construction workers, teachers and police officers, who were flanked on all sides during his speech. President Obama said that the only thing to stand in the way of the passage would be the lawmakers that have decided it’s not good politics to agree with anything he does. The president proclaims that political games cannot afford to be played.
The President sent the bill to Congress after unveiling the details in a speech that was directed at a joint session of legislatures last week. Now he is headed out to take his message to the people. Tuesday he will be in Speaker Boehner’s backyard of Ohio, and will be in North Carolina on Wednesday.
The plan starts with cutting the payroll tax that involves social security, and then giving tax breaks to small businesses and workers. There is also some new spending that will help teachers and school construction, while extending unemployment benefits. Some Republicans have already said they will not agree to new spending or increasing taxes on the wealthy, who they protect.
President Obama has said that everything in the bill will be paid for. He is more concerned with the other party who doesn’t seem to want to work with him on anything. He is going to talk to the people who desperately need a job.
