Obama Slams Congress For Failing To Pass Jobs Bill

President Barack Obama took aim at Congress during a Friday morning news conference at the White House for failing to pass a jobs bill he advocates.  Had Congress passed the bill last September, Obama said, “we’d be on track to have a million more Americans working this year.”

“We could be putting he a lot of people back to work rebuilding our roads, bridges, some of our schools,” Obama said. “There’s work to be done. There are workers to do it. Let’s put them back to work right now.”
