McCain to Obama: Your bus is ugly

(CNN) - Sen. John McCain –a politician who has seen his share of campaign buses– had harsh words Monday for Pres. Barack Obama's choice of election transportation.

"I must say again I have never seen an uglier bus than a Canadian one," the Arizona senator said in a speech on the Senate floor Monday. "He is traveling around on a Canadian bus touting American jobs."

Bachmann: Border fence is no joke

(CNN) - Rep. Michele Bachmann wasn't laughing Monday at Herman Cain's "joke" about building an electrified fence on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Speaking to the media in Phoenix, the Minnesota congresswoman gave a full-throated endorsement of a border fence, but said that joking about the matter detracted from the gravity of the issue.

Obama rips GOP opposition to jobs bill

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama took the push for his stalled $447 billion jobs plan on the road Monday, telling a North Carolina audience that alternative proposals put forward by his Republican critics amount to little more than sops to the rich that will gut critical regulations and fail to restore economic growth.

My "bill will help put people back to work and give our economy a boost right away," Obama told the crowd at Asheville Regional Airport. "But apparently none of this matters" to GOP leaders.

First on CNN: Democrats will seek smaller 'millionaire's tax'

Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will announce Monday that Democrats will seek a .5% (point five percent) surtax on annual incomes over $1 million to pay for the first individual component of President Obama's broader jobs package, which was rejected in the Senate last week, a Senate Democratic leadership aide told CNN.

That component of the larger jobs bill would provide $35 billion in aid to states to help preserve jobs for teachers and first responders, the White House and Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid's office said.
