18 Days after speech President’s jobs bill held up by Democrats

Obama's own Democratic Party controls the Senate and won't put their leader's jobs bill on the schedule because more wild spending like this doomed bill could also doom some Dem senators next year -- Andrew Malcolm
Here’s a little lesson in the U.S. Constitution. It is the Legislative Body’s or Congress’ responsibility to write bills. It is the Executive branch or the president’s responsibility to either sign the bill into law or veto the bill.

In an extraordinary act president Soetoro sent the bill entitled the American Job’s Bill to the Congress from the White house. Although the Progressive media isn’t reporting it, it is an extra-Constitutional act for the White house to write a bill and send that bill to Congress. What the Barry Hussein Soetoro White house has done is highly unusual and constitutionally abnormal.

Nevertheless, just to be sure let’s follow the timeline. On Thursday September 8, 2011, the president spoke to American before both houses of Congress about a bill that he was proposing to submit to Congress yet he spoke as if he had such a bill but he didn’t. He kept saying things like pass this bill now when there was no bill to be passed.

Pass this jobs bill — pass this jobs bill, and starting tomorrow, small businesses will get a tax cut if they hire new workers or if they raise workers’ wages. Pass this jobs bill and all small business owners will also see their payroll taxes cut in half next year. (Applause.) If you have 50 employees — if you have 50 employees making an average salary, that’s an $80,000 tax, cut. And all businesses will be able to continue writing off the investments they make in 2012. –president Barry Hussein Soetoro

On Monday September 12, 2011, the president held a press conference to announce the bill that he had spoken of 4 days prior. He said he was submitting the bill to Congress that day. (see article)

Three days after the bill was introduced September 15, 2011 Democrats not Republicans objected to the president’s American Jobs bill. The White house had to subdue a Democrat revolt against the president’s jobs bill. (see article)

Democratic lawmakers voiced objections to several of the president’s proposals to pay for the $447 billion stimulus package… David Plouffe, a senior adviser to the president, acknowledged after a marathon meeting in the Senate's Mansfield Room that not all Democrats are sold on the plan. -- Alexander Bolton

For nine days, the bill languished in Congress because no Democrat would formally submit the bill. Then on Wednesday September 21, 2011, Congressman John Larson (D-Conn.) introduced President Obama's American Jobs Act legislation in the House. Larson's bill, H.R. 12 has no chance of passing the House. (see article)

What is even stranger is the Senate is controlled by Democrats. Yet Senate leader Harry Reid won’t schedule the president’s bill for debate. (see article)

If Reid wanted to bring Obama’s jobs bill to the Senate floor for debate and a vote, of course he could, as Reid sets the Senate schedule. He has not done so yet, which is perhaps most telling about how he believes the Democratic caucus feels about the jobs bill. -- Sunlen Miller

President Soetoro has been going around accusing Republicans of holding up this jobs bill when it has been Democrats holding up his measure all along. (see article)

18 days after the president’s jobs speech Democrats have failed to introduce their president’s jobs bill. Yet the president is blaming Republicans. The president is engaging in partisan electioneering of the worst kind. He has introduced a phony jobs bill that not even his own Party will advance. He has falsely accused Republicans for his own Party’s failure to advance his phony bill.

Democrats control the Senate, yet Senator Leader Harry Reid won’t schedule the president’s Jobs bill. Reid says he won’t schedule the bill until next month.

The American Jobs Act is being hide hostage by Democrats. Bet you would see that reported in the Progressive media, because Progressives can't handle the truth.
