Stabenow hopes US Senate will move the President's Jobs Bill forward
Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow says she doesn’t know if the president’s jobs bill will clear its first legislative hurdle later today. That’s when the U.S. Senate is scheduled to take a procedural vote on the $447 billion ‘American Jobs Act’.
Stabenow, a Democrat, says she’d like to see the legislation move forward.
“Senator Reid is going to offer a different way to pay for it which I think makes sense…making sure those economically most blessed …millionaires and billionaires….are contributing," says Stabenow.
But Republican Senators oppose the added tax on millionaires. The president and vice president will be in Michigan this week promoting the jobs bill.
