Posted on 09/14/2011 6:39:07 PM PDT by NoLibZone
RALEIGH President Obama turned up the rhetorical heat in his push for his jobs bill on Wednesday, declaring that the country is facing a national emergency that demands Congressional action on his $447 billion economic package.
Plunging into his third battleground state in five days, Mr. Obama told highly charged students in a packed basketball arena at North Carolina State University that he was sick of the partisanship that has engulfed Washington during the last three years. He accused lawmakers of deliberately dragging their feet on his economic plan, not because they dont think it will help, but because they do not want to give him a political win.
Give me a win? Mr. Obama said, his voice rising as the crowd started cheering. Give me a break. Thats exactly why folks are fed up with Washington.
Even as initial polls suggest that only half of Americans support his jobs proposal, Mr. Obama appears convinced of his ability to sell it to the public, and he urged his audience to sell it in turn to their Congressional representatives.

Anyone have the Democrat bill or house number for the jobs bill ?
Funny how Obama omits the little detail that his Party, the Democrats, had super majorities in BOTH Houses right up until 8 short months ago. Ah, is that the partisanship he’s refering to?
Also, aren’t people getting tired of Obama telling the country that unless you pass my bill we’ll all die? He did this with the first stimulus. He did this with Obamacare, and now he’s doing it again with Son of Stimulus.
Get lost you lame duck.
It appears the House bill is HR 2911
Democrat and Republican politicians forget that too when discussing "the Bush deficits."
There's that little forgotten fact that the dems held the House and Senate when the deficits started rising dramatically.
It's all a crock... of Barack
President Barry 'It's fully paid for' Mumbo-jumbo
So there have never been a democrat that introduced Obama’s bill.
As far as I can tell nothing has happened in the House by the end of business yesterday (13th). Harry Reid did file the bill (S.1549)on the 13th without co-sponsors. The bill is awaiting first reading in the Senate. I thought appropriations bills had to originate in the House, but oh well.
Here's the current status on S.1549.
Looks like the Rats are in no big hurry at all to move this poison turkey through the process. I guess they hope if they stall long enough they can quietly bury it. Clearly the Rats know what NY-9 means, namely they're toast. They've already consumed way too much of Dr. Zero's magic Kool-Aid and have no stomach for more. Sure took the dumb asses long enough to figure out the main ingredient in Dr. Zero's magic Kool-Aid: Democrat Doom.
No thst not it.
I cant see it sbeen asigned a nbr yet
GOP rep. introduces alternative American Jobs Act
Texas GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert officially introduced the American Jobs Act of 2011 on Wednesday afternoon.
Not in yet!
Thank you .
It’s in the Senate.
I was looking in the House.
that graph states the spending issue clearly.
how can anyone say the financial crisis isn’t the fault of the dems?
Is there a house bill that's been introduced?
The Gohmert one is different.
"According to the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 7, clause 1), all bills relating to revenue, generally tax bills, must originate in the House of Representatives, consistent with the Westminster system requiring all money bills to originate in the lower house which is why the appropriations bills that are enacted begin with "H.R.", indicating a bill that originated in the House. The Constitution also states that the "Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills," so in practice, the Senate and House each drafts and considers its own bill. The Senate then "cuts-and-pastes", substituting the language of its bill of a particular appropriations bill for the language of House bill, then agrees to the bill as amended."
I agree. I created the graph from Federal government statistics and noted significant milestones.
“Is there a house bill that’s been introduced? “
No House bill introduced yet. I wonder if it will ever be introduced. I wonder if Boehner would just refuse to bring any such 0bama bill up for a vote even if a Rat introduced it. I wonder if the only way the Rats can make political hay is to do it in the Senate where they can at least schedule a vote. I wonder if the whole thing’s going to crash and burn in the Senate anyway as a whole bunch or Rat Senators have already come out opposing several different significant portions of the bill. There’s true panic in RatLand right now, so I suspect the whole thing IS going to crash and burn, and it will have nothing to do with Pub opposition.
How come served for eight years but is only responsible for seven budget years?
How come Bush served for eight years but is only responsible for seven budget years?
Because the Republicans were in charge of the House, Senate and Presidency up to the height of the housing bubble in 2007.
“I created the graph from Federal government statistics and noted significant milestones.”
Really? What statistics? Can you give references?
I’d like to find one that says he was president for only seven years like your graph shows. I had never heard that before. /s
Graph depicts 8 years
