big bill, the best he could offer to the working class, is pretty much what Richard
Trumka said “wouldn’t get the job done.” As San Francisco Chronicle columnist
Kathleen Pender aptly stated:

for you, don’t hold your breath.”
would think that Trumka would have assailed this pathetic offering from the president,
especially since he knows that Obama will not try very hard to get the bill passed.
And he must also know that the president soon will be proposing massive cuts in
Medicare and Medicaid. Yet here is what Trumka—who was a special guest of the
White House at the president’s speech—said:
President took an important and necessary step tonight: he started a serious national
conversation about how to solve our jobs crisis. He showed working people that
he is willing to go to the mat to create new jobs on a substantial scale. Tonights
speech should energize the nation to come together, work hard and get serious
about jobs. . . . The plan announced by the President is only the opening bid.
We expect to see more proposals in the next weeks and months to put America back
to work. President Obama understands that this economic crisis was not created
overnight, and it will not be solved overnight.
middle class has been under attack for decades. He understands that we need to
rebuild our economy for the 21st century and rebuild our middle class. But doing
this will require a revolution in the way Washington takes on these questions.
Republicans are going to have to stop blocking bills that sustain or create millions
of jobs and start offering credible solutions.
don’t have time to waste on the same old failed policies of deregulation and lower
taxes that drove our economy off the cliff in the first place. All our elected
leaders will be judged by whether they act with integrity and energy to create
good jobs now.
