Louie Gohmert nabs naming rights to ‘American Jobs Act’ after Obama delay

Apparently Obama didn’t act quickly enough in penning his new stimulus ‘jobs’ bill with the name “American Jobs Act”. So Rep. Louie Gohmert decided to create a real jobs bill and took the name. And I find that freaking hilarious!

HERITAGE – President Obama repeatedly asked members of Congress to pass the American Jobs Act last week. But when no Democrat filed Obama’s bill after he presented it to Congress, a conservative congressman swiped the name for his own legislation.

The American Jobs Act introduced in the House of Representatives looks quite different from the version President Obama outlined in his speech to Congress. Instead of hiking taxes on working Americans to pay for another stimulus, Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) legislation offers a tax cut.

And the bill is only 2 pages long! You know that just has to piss Obama and the Democrats off big time. Thus the photo I used on the front page. But man, I love it. Kudos Louie Gohmert!

    Is this story real? I looked at the house proceedings and it’s not in there.

      CNN has the same story.
      http://money.cnn.com/2011/09/14/news/economy/obama_jobs_act/

      Looks like they can still use the name, but he obviously stole their thunder on purpose. What makes me laugh even harder is that “Pass this now” didn’t mean that a single Dem would even introduce it now.

    LOL ! I’d love to have seen Obamas face when he was told about it !!

  • FishyGov

    Just curious, by taking the name “American Jobs Act” — which he knew Obama was going to call “his” new bill — does that make him a “squatter”?

    Am now wondering how much he could sell the name for;-)

    I like the bill, simple straight forward. It should be held up as an example to anyone seeking to introduce or write legislation.

    Someone with artistic/photographic talent should put together a slide show of all the different times Hussain has given the finger to the American people. He does it so well and, like most things he does, he doesn’t think we notice or doesn’t give an avian engagement.

      Oh, he thinks he’s so above all the peons of this nation. He doesn’t care we notice, there’s never been a more smug jackass to ever fill that sacred office so many died to create.

    As you can all see from the photo to your right the President is fatigued. So much so that while he stares into the camera he has to hold his head up with one of his fingers.

    He does not look happy :-[

  • I posted this earlier today off Heritage, I thought it was hilarious too…I think it is one of the best moves yet…..lol….Love your comments…..Love the Corp. Tax is zero on this new bill…..LOL

    I love the photo of obama that heads this article on the homepage. You know exactly what he’s thinking, don’t you? Two very impolite words to the photographer. It’s so obvious; I love it. He’s coming unraveled. Watch and see, if the pressure stays high, he’ll lose it completely and start screaming and shouting, frothing at the mouth, maybe curl up and go into a catatonic state.

    Does Obama realize just how foolish he is?
