One of Obama’s main thrusts in his recent “Jobs Speech” was that Congress should pass the act right away; it was urgent as people are in desperate need of employment. Yet, while this reminder of the urgency of the situation was repeated throughout Obama’s speech, there were no signs of real urgency on his part.
If Obama wanted anyone to believe that he found it urgent, why hadn’t the The American Jobs Act been drafted and introduced to Congress through one or more of Obama’s Congressional allies on the day he gave the speech?
It been days since Obama’s speech and the Act still hasn’t been drafted and introduced. The The American Jobs Act is nothing but more empty Obama rhetoric and is no closer to being “signature ready” than the projects detailed in the Liberals’ Stimulus were shovel ready.
