Obama welcomes jobs bill’s advance in Senate

WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (BestGrowthStock) – President Barack Obama
welcomed a U.S. Senate vote that advanced a modest job-creation
bill on Monday, calling it an “important step forward” and
vowing to work with both major parties to pass legislation.

“The American people want to see Washington put aside
partisan differences and make progress on jobs,” Obama said in
a statement after the newest Senate Republican bucked his party
and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package, overcoming a
procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote this week.

“This is one of many efforts we need to tackle our economic
challenges, and we will continue to work with Congress on
additional job creation measures,” Obama said. “Jobs remain our
top priority, and I look forward to working with members from
both parties to get legislation signed and the American people
back to work.
