Obama sending Congress jobs bill on Monday with Rose Garden send off

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--It's not on President Obama's public schedule for Monday yet--but according to a White House official, Obama will send Congress his jobs bill tomorrow night, with send-off remarks in the Rose Garden. Obama will be flanked, the official said, will be flanked in the Rose Garden by teachers, firefighters, police officers, small business owners and veterans, all people who Obama said would benefit from his package of tax breaks and spending to jumpstart the economy. Obama delivered the broad outlines of what the White House calls the "American Jobs Act" Thursday before a joint session of Congress.
