Skip to comments.Just a reminder: Obama’s jobs bill still has no cosponsors
Posted on 10/01/2011 12:19:58 PM PDT by cutty
Remember when Barack Obama addressed a joint session of Congress to introduce his American Jobs Act, exhorting them on national television to pass this bill immediately? Obama used that phrase in various forms 17 times despite the fact that he didnt actually have a bill to present to Congress until a week later. And as far as all but two members of Congress are concerned, the bill itself may as well not exist. No co-sponsors have added their names to either the Senate or the House version even after more than a week
We have a federal system, not a parliamentary system, so our legislature doesnt take votes of no-confidence to force an executive out of power. But given the high-profile rollout of the AJA by Obama, including his demand for a joint session to escalate pressure for action, the lack of any co-sponsors on these bills is about as close as well get to a vote of no confidence in this executive short of an outright floor-vote failure in the Senate on the bill.

“If you love me, pass this bill.”
The bill is a turkey. Only the most radical congressmen would even be associated with it.
Jobs bill? What jobs bill? Empty words from an empty suit!
He doesn’t seem to be to worried that people have heard him say “pass this bill” and there isn’t one to pass. He’s to busy golfing to worry about such mundane things.
It’s nothing but posturing, for the 99th time, while his Czars and jerks continue to pass out pork from the previous “jobs bills.”
This is a great little article. I’m sending it out to some of my Obama-worshipping friends.
This Epic Presidential Fail brought to by Obama and Leftists everywhere!
Contrapositive: "If you don't pass this bill, then you don't love me." Sounds about right.
"The opposite of love isn't hate, it's congress not passing my jobs bill."
This community organizer/Marxist lack polish so badly he is visibly cracking up.
It is a dead dog...who in their right mind would endorse a bill by someone who has ruined the dem party especially during the election season.
Yet the MSM still carries his water. Apparently they've not yet begun to defile themselves.

That's a shame.
This so called jobs bill is nothing more than a huge tax hike. Oh, wait, possibly jobs for the unions, not the average american.
