This is funny. Since Obama’s bill has not been introduced yet, Louis Gohmert, republican from Texas, has named his bill American Jobs Act of 2011.
He issued the following statement:
“We have heard a lot of rhetoric about job creation from President Obama over the last several days. After waiting to see what the President would actually put into legislative language, and then waiting to see if anybody would actually introduce the President’s bill in the House, today I took the initiative and introduced the ‘American Jobs Act of 2011.’ It is a very simple bill, which will eliminate the corporate tax which serves as a tariff that our American companies pay on goods they produce here in America.

Well, even as Obama shouts around the country on taxpayer money that congress must “Pass this Bill” Harry Reid has not introduced it on the Senate floor.
In fact, as I think about it, I don’t believe they have a bill yet despite the fact Obama got up in the Rose Garden with his Obamabots all around him, holding up something entitled American Jobs Act. It was probably just a pack of blank paper.
Despite President Barack Obama’s urgency to “pass this bill now,” the American Jobs Act may have to wait until next month, or later, before Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid even brings it to the floor for a vote.
On Tuesday, Reid told reporters that when it comes to specific pieces of legislation, he has other priorities before he gets to the jobs bill. They include the FEMA bill, several trade bills, and a bill on the Chinese currency.

The democrats may be getting the message and just might want to save themselves. I don’t know if it will help though since they have already drank the poison. But very interesting nonetheless, and it is very good for the country if he holds this stimulus.

P.S.: I am confused, actually, how the bill can start in the senate anyway…..
