Grifter President Games Voters on Jobs Bill
Democrats in the senate want nothing to do with the president's spending package - you know, the one he likes to call the "Jobs Bill." Mitch McConnell drove the point home by calling for the vote that the president's been asking for.
McConnell’s move was a bit of Senate theater intended to draw attention to Democrats’ division over President Obama’s bill and Reid’s refusal to take it up “right away,” as the president has urged at rally after rally for weeks.“
I agree with the president, I think he’s entitled to a vote on his jobs bill,” the Republican leader said on the Senate floor as he tried to force an immediate vote on the American Jobs Act by attaching it to unrelated legislation.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused.
Nevertheless, the president runs around the country attacking the GOP for not passing his jobs bill.
“I’d like Mr. Cantor to come down here to Dallas and explain what in this jobs bill he doesn’t believe in.”
“Mr. Cantor should come down to Dallas, look Kim Russell in the eye, and tell her why she doesn’t deserve to get a paycheck again. Come tell her students why they don’t deserve to have their teacher back. “Come tell Dallas construction workers why they should be sitting home instead of fixing our bridges and our schools.
Obama thinks tricking the American people will put him on the road to reelection.
