President Barack Obama said that the Republicans who are blocking this jobs plan are actually saying no to the Americans not him.
President Obama is taking 2012 elections extremely seriously and doing whatever it takes to maintain his position. Now, he has started 3-day bus tour to the most important states, North Carolina and Virginia, the day after the Senate Republicans blocked his $447 billion jobs act.
He persuaded a large crowd in North Carolina at Asheville Regional Airport to coerce the Congress to pass his bill which, according to him, will stimulate the creation of jobs (or perhaps help to save his own job). “Maybe they just couldn’t understand the whole all at once. So we’re going to break it up into bite- size pieces so they can take a thoughtful approach to this legislation,” President Obama said.
“I need you to give Congress a piece of your mind,” he added. “If (Senate Republicans) vote against taking steps that we know will put Americans back to work right now, then they’re not going to have to answer to me, they’re going to have to answer to you,” he told the cheering crowd.
He said that if the lawmakers pass the bill then the runway and taxiway would be widened and repaired which, he “noticed”, were damaged.
He also “noticed” that it was not only at the airport but all over the United States there were roads and highways tube built or repaired.
He assured that election doesn’t have anything to do with the jobs plan. Although he would appreciate “four more years” but right now, he has only 13 months ahead to work.
Maria Defilippis, a cashier in nearby Hendersonville, gave her opinion on this issue saying, “It’s the jobs, it’s the economy, and it’s the unemployment. He’s going to have to do something, but without the support of Congress, it’s going to be tough. Congress is the embarrassment, not the president. He’s trying to do what he said he would, but they’re stopping him at every turn. It’s not right.”
