President Barack Obama plans to send the text of his jobs bill to Congress on Monday night, a White House official said Sunday.
At a Rose Garden ceremony Monday, the president plans to announce that he will send the American Jobs Act to Congress at the end of the day, after both houses come back into session.

Geeze O Petes, you’d think they’ve raised the debt ceiling or something.
No wonder Trumka and Hoffa have been quiet all weekend....
they’ve been busy writing the bill for the TOTUS!
They’ll probably get the abridged version:
Why doesn’t klownie the kenyan just call it the “pass the bill” bill?
I guess he needs the money for his re-election. Must have run out of TARP? ‘Cause you know only his buddy’s will benefit from this cash!
Oooooooooooh, Hussein is FINALLY going to send some legislative language to the Congress?!
Hey, will it include PAYGO?!
It should be entitled More money to steal bill.
I spend whatever I want to pay off my constituents, and congress can figure out how to pay for it. Of course, I won’t like it, so that I can demonize the GOP and TP.
Pass the Koutchie...
Jackass Obama has no power to create jobs. Call it a “kill moonbat regulations” bill and I might read it.
Will it be written in purple crayon or blue?
Text of his jobs bill ?
What’s it say, “pass it now” ?
From the article:Give me a break. Didn't he admonish Congress to “Pass this bill” something like 17 times on Thursday night.
He will call on Congress to pass the bill, which contains the kinds of proposals to grow the economy and create jobs that have been supported by both parties in the past, the official said.
I still wish that Boehner would have offered to start the procedural steps and have the first reading into the record while Obama was still on the Podium Thursday. He could have said, "Mr. President, since we have a quorum present, and I don't want to obstruct this important legislation, we can read the bill into the record right now. May we have the bill, Mr. President. If nobody in your party will sponsor it, I'd be willing to move things along by sponsoring this bill myself."
Obama has outdone Pelosi.
Pelosi's line was, "We have to pass the bill so you can see what's in it." Obama is going for, "You have to pass the bill so we can write it the way we want."
The spending portion will be in the bill tomorrow.
The cutting portion will be in the sometime next year or after the election or midway through 2020.
