Joe Biden Visits Flint To Promote Jobs Bill [VIDEO]
The White House isn’t giving up on President Obama’s jobs bill, which has stalled in the Senate. Visiting a fire department in Flint, Vice President Joe Biden said the jobs bill would help save the jobs of police and firefighters.
Biden said he and the President will continue to “go over the heads” of lawmakers and take their case directly to the American people.
The President’s overall jobs bill hit a procedural roadblock in the Senate and is going nowhere in the Republican-led House. The President has said he would consider signing the nearly 500-billion-dollar legislation in pieces. Republicans vow to block any tax increases. Biden said it is time for the wealthiest Americans to “pay their fair share.”
The Vice President flew in on an Air Force Jet that is currently at Bishop International Airport. Biden will make his next stop in Grand Rapids this afternoon.
