Playing politics interferes with creation of jobs

Almost a month ago, President Obama laid out his plan to create jobs and invest in our infrastructure. The bottom line: more people working and better roads, bridges and schools.

As the president asked last week in his speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, since when are Republicans against building roads? And I’d add, since when are they against creating jobs?

Sadly, I think the answer has do with when political posturing became more important than actually getting things done. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and the House Republicans have made their priorities clear.

Let’s keep the pressure on them to not let the same thing happen this time around.
