Obama Vows To Pass Jobs Bill In Pieces

Obama Vows To Pass Jobs Bill In Pieces

Despite President Barack Obama’s repeated recommendations that Congress “pass this bill,” Senate Republicans united against the President to ensure that what they have called a rehashing of his previous stimulus attempts died on the Senate floor.

A 50-49 tally that garnered support from a majority of the 100-member Senate but fell well short of the 60 votes needed to keep the bill alive ended the President’s measure. As a result of the vote, Obama criticized Republicans for failing to support measures that they have in the past and vowed to pass the bill in pieces.

“Tonight’s vote is by no means the end of this fight. Independent economists have said that the American Jobs Act would grow the economy and lead to nearly 2 million jobs, which is why the majority of the American people support these bipartisan, commonsense proposals,” Obama said in a Tuesday night statement. “And we will now work with Senator Reid to make sure that the individual proposals in this jobs bill get a vote as soon as possible.”

Obama and his fellow Democrats’ new plan, it seems, is to break the bill apart and force Republicans to vote on some of the measures that Obama pulled from GOP playbooks in creating the jobs bill. Reports also indicate that some marriages of Republican and Democratic ideas may come to vote as smaller proposals.

“With each vote, members of Congress can either explain to their constituents why they’re against commonsense, bipartisan proposals to create jobs, or they can listen to the overwhelming majority of American people who are crying out for action,” Obama said.
