House GOP swipes the name of Obama’s jobs bill


Normally I hate many of the counterproductive political games that play out in Washington. However, this little trick by House Republicans gave me a chuckle. Heritage's Rob Bluey has the details (emphasis mine):

President Obama repeatedly asked members of Congress to pass the American Jobs Act last week. But before Obama delivered the details to Capitol Hill, a conservative congressman swiped the name for his own legislation.

The American Jobs Act introduced in the House of Representatives looks quite different from the version President Obama outlined in his speech to Congress. Instead of hiking taxes on working Americans to pay for another stimulus, Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) legislation offers a tax cut.

Clever, no?
