Obama Vows to Keep Pressing for Provisions of Jobs Plan

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama vowed to keep pressing Congress to vote on individual components of the jobs plan that was blocked in the Senate last night.

“We will not take ‘no’ for an answer,” Obama said today at an American Latino Heritage Forum sponsored by the White House and the Interior Department.

Voting on provisions of the legislation separately will force Republican lawmakers to go on record in support of or opposition to tax cuts, aiding teachers and repairing the nation’s infrastructure, he said.
