Bring Jobs Act to a vote

It is time for Congress, especially the House of Representatives, to stop adding to the terrible economy and possible recession, and bring the Americans Jobs Act up for a vote. It may have been a Democratic President's idea but it is an American need so stop the partisanship and get this thing passed. Both parties support many aspects of the bill and both parties have been elected by Americans who need this bill passed. Why do some of these folks think they only respresent people who agree with them? Eric Cantor can use his power to make a difference for America by getting the economy going with the passage of this bill rather than continuing to add to the toxic behavior of the House of Representatives! If he is afraid of his election prospects, this should certainly help him so it's a win/win situation for him.

Get it up for a vote and get it passed now.
