From The L.A. Times:
"As the president in Texas urged Congress to vote on his jobs bill, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell threw the Senate a curveball on Tuesday by trying to do just that.
“I agree with the president, I think he’s entitled to a vote on his jobs bill,” the Republican leader said on the Senate floor as he tried to force an immediate vote on the American Jobs Act by attaching it to unrelated legislation.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused."
More from TheHill.com:
The best part of the story is Obama is hitting the fund raising circuit using the premise that the Washington stalemate is due to Republicans, and if they'd only pass his jobs bill flying unicorns would appear in the sky distributing bags of money to his supporters for infrastructure projects and green jobs.
From The Daily Caller:
Now it appears that some Republicans in Congress are getting tired of being the used as the President's political punching bag when Reid and his Democratic colleagues in the Senate have yet to produce a budget for the country.
I expect come next November, we"ll discover which party is seen by the American people as the 'Party of No'.
