I just witnessed our President deliver what I believe to be the most powerful speech of his first term thus far. He introduced to a joint session of Congress (and the American people) the American Jobs Act. Everything he said and every proposal he made, to me, seemed like common sense. As he reminded the members of Congress several times during the speech, these are all proposals that have been supported by both Democrats and Republicans in the past. There is no conceivable reason why both chambers should not be able to pass this legislation right away. (Though I am sure our Republican friends will find several reasons.)
