Mitt Romney demands President Obama's jobs plan. Apparently, he forgot the one Republicans blocked.

Willard wants a jobs plan:

"[W]ith America in crisis, with 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, he hasn't put forth a plan to get us working again," Romney said Tuesday. "Now I know we're getting close to an election so he'll come out with one soon, but three and a half years later, we're waiting."
What a great idea. So great that President Obama has already done just that. He did it in September. And other than its tax cuts, House Republicans refused to pass it. (Even passing those was like pulling teeth.)

Republicans had so little interest in moving forward with Obama's jobs plan that when he originally requested a joint session of Congress to propose it, John Boehner said no—because Mitt Romney and the other Republican clowns were having a presidential debate. Boehner literally put debates before jobs.


Just in case Mitt Romney was too focused on battling Rick Perry and Rick Santorum to have noticed, President Obama offered a reminder on Friday of some of the things that he proposed—and House Republicans blocked. Things like putting teachers, cops, and firefighters back on the job to combat the bleed of jobs from state and local governments. Things like putting construction workers back to work rebuilding roads, bridges and airports. Things like helping small businesses hire workers and boost income. Things like allowing homeowners to refinance to take advantage of lower rates.


Things, in short, that would boost the economy and create jobs. And things that House Republicans refused to pass. If Mitt Romney really wanted economic growth, he'd be asking why Congress hasn't done more with President Obama's plan. Instead, he's pretending that Obama never offered it.

    Romney was right Obama had nothing but more government spending with hiring more government workers and raising our deficit spending even more while continuing Obama's so called tax cut which only drained money from the social security fund which adds more money to the deficit and shortens the amount of time Social security goes bankrupt--gee thanks dems and Obama!

    He has never had a " jobs " plan . What he has offered was a " spending plan "
    the he ( and other dims ) referred to as a " jobs " plan. This guy has never had
    a job so it is impossible for him to create something if you don't know what it is.
    The republicans won't pass anything due to the largesse that the DIMocRATS
    insist on attaching to EVERY bill , knowing that the house won't pass it thus
    fooling ONLY those that would reelect the same flunkies just because they
    have a (D) beside their name on the ballot. Wisconson is merely the preview
    to the main attraction.

    My God, Willard is more stupid than I though. In Sept of 2011, Obama released his American for Jobs Act. Hell, it was in every major newspaper. The primary focus was on incentives for new investment and reforms and regulatory reductions to help entrepreneurs and small businesses access capital.

    Again.... WHERE WAS WILLARD ?

    Yeah, those damned Republicans blocking that one job bill. Someone should talk to the democrats to get them to pass one or two of the 40 ones the Republicans passed, before you start to attack them because you aren't ignorant or a hypocrite.

    Republicans blocked the Presidnt's "Job Plan" because as usual, it had higher taxation tied to it, which would have the opposite affect! Just because you slap a positive label on a bill doesn't mean it will come up smelling like roses in the end!

    Does anyone know Romney's? No! Because he admitted out loud that he wasn't going to let us in on it, until after he's elected.

    True, but a failed plan is no better than no plan at all. More Mitt. In the pit!

    According to congress A failed plan is much better than a plan that will work but we'll never pass.
