House Republican Says No Democrat Will Touch Jobs Bill That Was Introduced In The House By A Democrat Five Days Ago

Post by gigichicago on Tue Sep 27, 2011 12:28 pm

"It seems that Representative James Lankford (R-Okla.) and the Daily Caller reporters who talk to him all need to get up to speed on current events.

That's the takeaway from this article by James Ballasy, titled "Congressman: House Democrats won’t touch Obama’s jobs bill." See, there has actually been some touching! Meanwhile, Lankford comes across as a trifle touched:

Republican Rep. James Lankford of Oklahoma told The Daily Caller on Friday that no House Democrat wants to put his or her name behind President Obama’s $447 billion jobs plan, a necessary step before the legislation can be introduced for consideration.
He also claimed the bill would not lower the current 9.1 percent unemployment rate.

“The focus right now from him [Obama] is ‘pass my whole bill, pass my whole bill,’ [and] some of the struggle with that is no Democrat in the House has even taken his bill and filed it yet. So we can’t even pass the bill because no one wants to put their name on it and say, ‘this is my bill’ and file it in the House,” said Lankford in a September 23 interview at the U.S. Capitol."
