The Asbury Park Press Editorial Board opined to its declining readership that President Obama’s American Jobs Act should be passed now.
The problem with that is that is that the bill hasn’t been written yet. Obama launched his reelection campaign in earnest Thursday night in an address to a joint session of congress that proposed a 1/2 trillion in spending. He said it would be paid for, but didn’t say how.
Congressman Dennis Kucinich, hardly a Tea Party radical “determined to dismantle government and its vital programs piece by piece” said he would have to see the bill before deciding whether to vote for or against it.
I never would have thought that I’d be writing that Kucinich exhibits more sanity than my hometown newspaper.
