Saturday Speeches: Jobs

 

President Barack Obama is still pushing for his stalled $447 billion jobs bill, focusing on a new report to bolster his call for a new tax on the wealthy.

A report this week by the Congressional Budget Office pointed to an ever-growing gap between America’s richest 1 percent and everyone else, especially wage earners on the bottom of the scale.

Obama says in his weekly radio and Internet address that he believes it’s a contribution the rich are willing to make but “Republicans in Congress aren’t paying attention. They’re not getting the message.”

For the Republicans, Illinois Rep. Bobby Schilling urged the president to support the GOP plan of fewer regulations, less administrative red tape and no tax increases.

He says the plan has some bipartisan support but it’s blocked by Senate Democrats.
