Congress Jobs

FILE – In this Jan. 8, 2009 file photo, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., asks a question during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. The election-year jobs agenda promised by President Barrack Obama and Democrats has stalled seven months before voters determine control of Congress. Democrats have no money to pay for the program. That’s because both Republicans and the Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget Committee objected to taking money left over from the fund that bailed out banks, automakers and insurers and using it for the jobs bill.
