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.

The bill will just be a copy of his speech.

They’ll probably get the abridged version:

1) Spend
2) ???
3) JOBS!

Obama’s 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.

Jackass Obama has no power to create jobs. Call it a “kill moonbat regulations” bill and I might read it.

From the article:
“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.
Give me a break. Didn't he admonish Congress to “Pass this bill” something like 17 times on Thursday night.

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.

Man, could this guy be anymore transparent? He has NOTHING to run on, so he proposes a ridiculous and expensive bill he knows will never get through Congress. Thus, he will run on this: If the economy improves it is because of his stimulus, and it all would have happened sooner if those danged evil rich jet-flying Republicans passed his `jobs bill,` and if it doesn`t improve it`s because the Republicans didn`t pass his `jobs bill.`

It is the ultimate in cynicism--Obama doesn`t give a damn about helping the unemployed, only in dividing people through invented controversies like this. No one with an ounce of working brain matter can believe this is anything but another case of `don`t let a good crisis go to waste.`

I keep thinking these people have reached the bottom of the barrel, and they keep getting more repugnant.

A Rose Garden Ceremony to send a bill to Congress? Oh, please. Does he need a brass fanfare to go to work every morning?

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.

On Thursday he ranted and raved "pass the bill" and there was no bill.

Sunday the press are told Monday he's going to announce there is no bill but it's coming ... at the end of that day.

Will there be a full press motorcade watch like when Ken Starr sent his referral up the House ?

Is there any ounce of theatricality left to be squeezed out?

Close. They said the cutting portion would come a week from Monday. Well, not exactly. They said "some ideas" for the cutting portion would come a week from Monday.

It's a farce of epic proportions. The thing should've been ready when he got off the Martha's Vineyard golf course so he could've handed a copy to the Speaker at his chest-thumping on Thursday.

Obamski will probably drop back and punt the bill to Nazi Pelozi to write. She will hand it off to Bwarney Fwank.

As promised, Ø is funneling to the idiots who voted for him money stolen from those whom did not. It’s what Democrats are.
