Rand Mocks Prez: Pass This Bill Now
The freshman senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, mocks the president's "Pass This Bill Now" mantra, calling on Obama to stop abusing business if he wants job creation.
“I have a message for the president. If you are for job creation, you can’t be against the job creators,” Paul said. “I have got another message for the president. We have got a bill here that will help solidify a thousand jobs in South Carolina. Pass it now.”
Republican senators on Wednesday called for a vote on legislation meant to counter the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) complaint against Boeing for allegedly retaliating against union workers.
At a press conference, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took a similar tone to President Obama during his jobs speech last week, pounding the dais and imploring that lawmakers pass the legislation. Paul was among seven Republican senators to push for passage of a bill that would curb the labor board’s legal authority.
