Obama’s jobs bill rejected by the Senate

WASHINGTON  – On Tuesday  the U.S. Senate rejected the plan to support the use defended by Barack Obama, who accused the Republicans to filibuster and promised to continue fighting for his initiative.

$ 447 billion employment plan  based on tax cuts and new spending, could not get the 60 votes needed in the Senate for further consideration.

“In the end, the American people will not accept a ‘no’ for an answer. It is time for Congress to assume its responsibility to its partisan politics aside and act for employment,” responded the Democratic president in a statement.

No Republican senator has voted in favor of the project. At least two Democratic senators voted with Republicans Tuesday night to effectively kill President Obama’s $447 billion jobs bill.
