President Barack Obama is calling on Congress to stop what he calls a "political circus" and immediately pass new jobs legislation to help the economy and restore fairness and security to the nation.
In excerpts released by the White House Thursday night ahead of the president's speech to a joint session of Congress, Obama says the country faces a national crisis and a question: whether elected officials will meet their responsibilities the same way regular Americans do.
Congressional officials and others outside the White House say the plan costs nearly $450 billion and would increase and extend a payroll tax cut for workers that goes to Social Security, while providing the tax cut to employers, too.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the president's remarks.
Struggling to fix the sickly economy, President Barack Obama planned to appeal to Congress Thursday night to support nearly $450 billion in tax cuts and federal spending, including deeper payroll tax cuts to keep more cash in the pockets of dispirited Americans. His message to Republican lawmakers heading into re-election campaigns: You'd better help.
Shortly before Obama's nationally televised speech to Congress, officials said the president would ask lawmakers to give a Social Security payroll tax cut to employers as well as workers as he looks for ways to cut into a national unemployment rate of 9.1 percent.

When one wants to know what a Democrat is up to, watch for what he accuses others of doing.
The congress was a Dem super-majority until about 10 months ago. Barry’s the head clown.
2 days ago it was $300 billion. It’ll be $6B by the time he speaks.
Most of the clowns are in the White House!
Same ol', same ol'; "Whitey has more money than he needs. We're gonna take it and spread it around da 'hood".
Tax cuts? Yeah, sure. 0.00000000001% off yack wool underwear that is union manufactured in New Jersey.
Federal spending? Ten bucks sez it's about $449,999,999,926.99 sent to DNC owned pinwheel powered Unicorn ranches in Iran.
If obama really wanted to end the circus, he would have his ears pinned back, the ugly mole thing removed from his face, stop turning blue, get his wife to have liposuction everywhere including her big mouth, have her stop wearing the whitehut shower curtains all at the same time, NEVER let her be seen in spandex, and maybe just maybe, we could start taking those words seriously.
Coming from the head clown and chief and his clown posse.
So now he’s throwing people under the clown car?
The Democrat Media Circus is on T.V. every night with Obama the _______________.
Well then they should start the impeachment proceedings.
But Obama is the ring leader.
We need a picture of Obama in a clown costume, standing on his head, calling on Reid & Pelosi & Co. to “stop this stupid circus!”
What a loser.
wow. Another shining example of Obama’s leadership quality.
This stuff writes itself.
In other words, surrender to communism.
They only say this when they are losing the argument
All Obama has to do is resign.
Sez P.T. Barnham Ubama.
Another obama lie.
It’s a circus and 0bama’s the clown.
The party and President that have been in power and controlled everything is now calling the other side who had no power to pass anything responsible for TOTAL NON-ACTION. Sorry Dems, but let the blame for this mess fall where it belongs on a bunch of flannel-mouthed talkers. This blowhard had gotten by on word invective long enough without being called to accounting. He is not fooling the more intelligent young electorate the media likes to call ‘the independents’ this time around. Evidence is that the Democrats gained control and sat on their hands. The unemployment numbers and the economic malaise and inflated food prices will do the trick. They got the validictorian in and did nothing with it. Did anybody expect more from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?
That’s quite a statement coming from the chief clown.
