Cantor to Obama: Nope

Updated
 

So much for that American Jobs Act thing:

Needling the president, Cantor noted that the bill has yet to garner unified support among Democrats.

“I think from a purely practical standpoint, the president’s got some whipping to do on his own side of the aisle,” the majority leader said.

Asked directly if the bill was dead as a comprehensive package, Cantor replied, “Yes.”


It’s worth remembering that Americans say they like the particulars of President Obama’s jobs proposal quite a lot – especially the tax breaks for working families, money for teachers and first responders, and infrastructure. The new unemployment report comes out on Friday.
