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!
