RSC Chairman Jordan Mocks Obama's New "We Can't Wait" Scheme

We recently read that the Obama administration is planning an unconstitutional housing refinancing bail-out scheme.  The policies which Obama will install by fiat are policies which were rejected on a bipartisan basis by the United States Congress.  Because he could not get his way with the Republicans and the Democrats in Congress, Obama is unilaterally, by executive action, ramming through his refinancing scheme down the throats of responsible Americans.
 
In Nevada, where the president gave a speech on yet another bail-out scheme  --  and a state which Obama must win to win reelection  --  State Assemblyman Richard Westrup said that "We need to let the free market work."  More government interference with the housing market is not going to solve the problem. 
 
"Time" magazine on October 24, 2011 said about this latest Obama scheme: "Did you know that you can't be in favor of fixing the housing market and not be in favor of President Barack Obama's American Jobs Act? That was the underlying message of a conference call with two top Obama advisers on Monday morning, nominally convened to explain and take answers from journalists about the much-touted new mortgage refinance program Obama is unveiling as he heads out west."  BTW, the only states Obama now visits 13 months before the presidential election are states which he absolutely needs to win reelection. 
 
Former Jimmy Carter aide, Pat Caddell, told Neil Cavuto on Fox News yesterday, "The government can't make anything work."  And that is exactly what his party's president is trying to attempt to do yet again. 
 
The Chairman of the House of Representatives' Republican Study Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan from Ohio mocks the president's tactic of blaming the Republicans for not creating jobs by not passing his "jobs" legislation. 
 
Chairman Jordan said yesterday:  "President Obama’s new slogan – “We Can’t Wait” – is an odd choice. Right now, 15 different House-passed jobs bills are stuck in the Senate, awaiting action from Harry Reid and his fellow liberals. And this week, the House will vote on two more jobs bills. One (H.R. 674), will repeal a three percent withholding tax on the money paid to private companies that do business with the federal government. This is a bipartisan way to keep more capital in the hands of job creators. The other (H.R. 1904), will support the development of American copper resources and help create thousands of private sector jobs."

RSC Update: “We Can’t Wait” Any Longer for Washington to Get Out of the Way

President Obama’s new slogan – “We Can’t Wait” – is an odd choice. Right now, 15 different House-passed jobs bills are stuck in the Senate, awaiting action from Harry Reid and his fellow liberals. And this week, the House will vote on two more jobs bills. One (H.R. 674), will repeal a three percent withholding tax on the money paid to private companies that do business with the federal government. This is a bipartisan way to keep more capital in the hands of job creators. The other (H.R. 1904), will support the development of American copper resources and help create thousands of private sector jobs.

Conservatives in the House and Senate have been offering solutions that promote growth and job creation all year long. At the RSC, we’re gathering many of these proposals for a package that reduces the red tape hindering small businesses, flattens and simplifies the tax code, and removes obstacles to American energy production.

I hope President Obama and Senate Democrats will choose to work with us on these common sense ideas. Americans who want to get back to work shouldn’t have to wait any longer for Washington to get out of the way.

God Bless,

Congressman Jim Jordan
Chairman, Republican Study Committee
