In a speech to Congress last night after a gloomy “Un-Labor” Day on Monday, President Obama announced his jobs plan, the American Jobs Act. (Watch video of the speech here.) The proposed $447 billion bill includes $175 billion in payroll tax cuts, as well as deficit reduction measures. The plan is designed to grow jobs through infrastructure projects and by encouraging small business growth and hiring. Claiming that there is “nothing controversial” about his plan, Obama repeatedly exhorted Congress to “pass this jobs bill.” Obama promised to send his plan to Congress next week as a single bill and was anything but conciliatory: “I intend to take this message to every corner of the country,” he vowed.
