Pass It Now? Not So Fast, Says Reid
President Obama says he’s going to keep pounding away at Congress to pass his $447 billion jobs plan. If lawmakers don’t do enough to help the economy, he says, then we’ll get a new Congress. Now, we’re gonna get a new president at the same time that we get a new Congress. Speaking of Obama’s jobs bill, while he’s pressing Congress to pass it, Dingy Harry said last night that when the Senate returns from a week-long vacation they will work instead on a bill that would push to label China a currency manipulator. That’s gonna take precedence over Obama’s jobs bill. They’re gonna go on vacation first, they got another week off, which is all fine with us, and then when they come back Obama’s jobs bill is not going to be the focus.
