Obama's Hail Mary Pass

Milligan, Susan
September 2011
U.S. News Digital Weekly;9/9/2011, Vol. 3 Issue 36, p5
The article focuses on the disagreement between U.S. Republicans and Democrats over the plan of President Barack Obama to allocate another 447 billion dollars to create jobs. Obama expressed a direct order to members of the Congress to approve the bill to fund the American Jobs Act and offer tax relief to workers and employers. However, Republicans are concerned that entitlement such as Medicare will be used in the 2012 campaign. At issue is whether to provide bigger tax cuts for businesses.
