Once again, President Obama is calling on Congress to do their jobs, today on getting the transportation bill passed and in making sure student loan rates don't go up on millions of students:
There’s no excuse for inaction. Right now, we are seven days away from thousands of American workers having to walk off the job because Congress hasn’t passed a transportation bill. We are eight days away from nearly seven and a half million students seeing their loan rates double because Congress hasn’t acted to stop it.
Stating the obvious, Obama says:
It’s not lost on any of us that this is an election year. But we’ve got responsibilities that are bigger than an election. We answer to the American people, and they are demanding action. Let’s make it easier for students to stay in college. Let’s keep construction workers rebuilding our roads and bridges. And let’s tell Congress to do their job. Tell them it’s time to take steps that we know will create jobs now and help sustain our economy for years to come.
... and once again asks that you contact your congressmen and tell them to get off their ass and do their job.
