President Obama began a three-day bus tour to rally support for passing portions of his jobs bill Monday as Senate Democrats introduced the first piece that would temporarily fund some local teachers and emergency workers’ wages at a cost of $35 billion.
Just last week, the Senate blocked the president’s $447 billion package of new spending and extended tax cuts, so Democratic leaders plan to break it into individual bills, each paid for with a small surtax on taxpayers making $1 million or more. That would frame the choice as one among public employees, construction workers and the jobless on one hand, and the wealthy on the other.
The only Job Obama should be trying to save is his own.
And boy is he ever!
