President Obama: Pass my Jobs Bill now!, Senate Democrats: Uh, Maybe next month.

 Hardest hit is President Obama's ego.

The Hill reported:
The Senate likely will not take up President Obama’s plan to create jobs until next month following a planned recess period, the No. 2 Democrat in the chamber said Sunday.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said the Senate would focus on a number of “related issues” to the $400 billion job-creation legislation this week. But he quickly noted on CNN that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has placed the massive jobs bill “on the calendar.”
The Senate is slated to be in recess Sept. 26-30, returning for legislative business on Oct. 3.
Some debate on the measure could begin “this week,” Durbin said. The legislation “is ready,” he said, “and poised.
“But it’s more realistic it’d be next month,” Durbin said.

The longer the Dems delay this faux bill the better it is for Obama's re-election campaign. That's the whole point - blame his failure on Congress.
