New York (CNNMoney) – Citing economic headwinds from Europe, President Obama asked lawmakers on Friday to revive a set of long ago-discarded legislative proposals designed to stimulate the economy.
The initiatives, first proposed in September, include investments in infrastructure, tax breaks for small businesses and funding for teachers, firefighters and other public sector workers.
At some point all members of congress will be up for re-election. And you better be scared, your approval ratings are in the 20 percent area.
Obama to Congress: Do something
American People to Obama: Pack your bags.
As long as the GOP are there, nothing will get done. All they want to do is obstruct and destroy.
If America is smart, it needs to watch all these Congress idiots....they need to do something. They are just taking money for nothing....shame, shame, shame...this is where we are as a Democracy?????
The American people to Mr. Obama: Do something: RESIGN EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!
Obama is toast..and he knows it.
I hope Obama creates a great transition team for his departure. We all HOPE to CHANGE the direction of this country.
Obama to Congress : Do something...........like spend more money we do not have??
hey Obama keynesian economics does NOT WORK!!!! PERIOD.
Friedrich Hayek proved that in Road to Surfdom....and Europe is proving that EVERYDAY
EVERYBODY in the Republican Party will be united in their effort to save this country from the disaster the leftist Democrats are hell bent on bringing to this country. You need look no further than a bankrupt and disintegrating Europe to see the future that the leftist Democrats have in store for THIS country. So America, do you want prosperity, or do you want bankruptcy and rioting in the streets? The choice really is that simple. The stakes could not be any higher.
The GOP opens mouth and inserts foot
don't you know that has Congress done too much already ?? 16 trillion in things
everytime Congess does someting it COSTS MONEY THAT AMERICA DOES NOT HAVE
CONGRESS NEEDS TO UNDO what it has spent the last 100 years doing
Mr President they are already doing something. With the debt ceiling and jobs and women's rights and so many other issues (wont say JOBS because the tea tards just ran on JOBS they havent done a darn thing!) on the table they are taking the next two seeks OFF. The teapublikkkans in the house have made their own rules on when to work while so many Americans don't have jobs and the rest of us pray every day that we keep ours.
Then they are coming back for one week and OFF again for two. I don't know about the rest of you but insouldmlove a job like that.
House Republicans have already announced that they are done legislating for the entire year. Instead, they want to sit back and accuse the President of not getting anything done. "Where is Pres. Obama's jobs bill?" That's what they want to say.
Also, where are the jobs bills that House Republicans ran on in 2010. So far, they have passed 30 "Jobs bills", ranging from defunding Planned Parenthood, war on light bulbs, endorsing "In God We Trust", and a host of others that all include amendments to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
We changed the direction of this country to something good when we voted Obama in LEGALLY. It was Bush's illegal regime that put us in this mess. We've got to keep this country out of the destructive GOP clutches. We'd never survive another disaster like Bush.
Some american people have become stupid for not realizing that republicans are deliberately holding their jobs hostage in
order to blame the President so that they can get votes in an election year, here is a little secret President Obama is not
stupid, when the time is right He is going to set the jobs free from the hostage takers and then mr 47th rank governor will
want his superpacs to spend all the money in the world to buy him votes which will not help him win the white house.
I see uhbama is not taking any responsibility for his 3 1/2 years of failure.
I'm sorry......But remember 3-1/2 years ago--the "stimulous" was supposed to be used to create thousands of "shovel ready" jobs to fix the infrastructure-what happened to all of the money Obama?? No more money Obama!! You and your policies are failures–no more money!! US citizens/voters/workers just need to hold on for 5 more months-until Obama is forced out of the White House and sent back to Chicago.
Funny how you hardly EVER hear conservatives admit to or even remotely acknowledge the blantant GOP hyper partisonship and obstructionism in Congress, but they will instantly, and naively, point the finger squarely at the President. Keep on putting Republicans/Tea Baggers in Congress, America, and see how far that gets you!!
I don't know what else Congress can do. The House Repealed Obama Care but the Senate refuses to take up the Budget for 3 years now. Employers are scared of what is to come. People can't spend with no money to spend because they don't have a job. Obama is like a broken record. We need a new record. It will happen in November.
Thanks for doubling our debt to $15.5 Trillion. and nice speech today on how you are going to spend us into oblivion. Keep blocking him Congress! You are doing good!
"...pack your bags".
Boehner has given the House another week off. This is nine weeks out of this year the do- nothings have been
on vacation. Once again, they are 'packing their bags" to go home and play.
They are leaving the transportataion bill unsolved and the student loan bill unsolved. These last-minute
obstructionists think they can bully themselves back into office. Hope they are wrong. Enough is enough.
If congress does not do what I demand they do I will have harry Reid stop the bills or I will veto them

Actually it is the Republicans in Congress who should be worried about running on their record. Since Pres. Obama took office they have said they hope he (and therefore the country) fails, caused more fillibustres than any other Congress, obstructed more bills and actually kept the country from moving forward more quickly. Last summer's embarrassing debt ceiling debate and down grading of the credit rating was their fault and the whole world knows it. Actually since they took over the Congress in 2010 promising jobs, jobs, jobs hardly anything has been done and they have really obstructed growth with their gridlock. It is austerity measures in Europe that has caused many countries to go backwards and that is what the Republicans keep crying must be done. It is austerity measures in many states that have laid off teachers, policemen, firemen, etc. and this adds to the unemployment rate. Aren't any Republicans in these professions? If a few Republicans finally start wanting to do something now to try and make themselves look useful before the election, hopefully the media will honestly call them out on it. It is a little too late. It would be great to gave a daily show dealing just with fact checking and "keeping them honest". That will probably not happen though.
They are doing something sir. They are doing EVERYTHING they can, EVERYTHING, to derail, backpedal, defund, stall, set-back any progress, any improvement, insum ANYTHING that would put you in good stead and ina good light with the voters come November.
Evil incarnate these GOPeeing Teatards and their Golden Boy Puppet are.
And they are going to get worse because they are desperate to steal THEIR White House back.
Brace yourself sir, and stayed prayed-up God is with you but it's going to be tough.
Obama 2012. Seriously America.
Everyone blames everyone else. With all the liberals disillusioned with his broken promises out there, I actually read an editorial blaming liberal voters who were questioning Obama's approach. OK – the only group left to blame is people happy with Obama. That's probably next. So it seems like every man woman and child in the country is to blame except Obama. Doesn't the executive leader take some responsibility at some point?
Liberals for a 3rd party vote.
Remember the interview/video when everyone (including Obama) started laughing when the interviewer asked Obama--"where are the thousands of shovel ready jobs"? Do a search for the interview/video on Youtube. I do not remember who/what station did the interview.....But, Romney needs to use that clip in attack ads in all states until the election!! Only 5 more months, and "real" hope and change will be coming to Washington/the White House!!
