You can’t make this shit up:
President Obama repeatedly asked members of Congress to pass the American Jobs Act last week. But when no Democrat filed Obama’s bill after he presented it to Congress, a conservative congressman swiped the name for his own legislation.
The American Jobs Act introduced in the House of Representatives looks quite different from the version President Obama outlined in his speech to Congress. Instead of hiking taxes on working Americans to pay for another stimulus, Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) legislation offers a tax cut.
Okay, enough shitzengiggles – why hasn’t the bill been introduced to Congress yet?
The White House tried to schedule Obama’s latest Greatest Speech Ever™ for the first day Congress was back in session because this bill was so urgent.
Then they waited until last week to come up with a written bill. Now it’s still languishing because the Democrats haven’t done anything with it.
So what are they waiting for?
