Obama: Republicans obstruct progress on jobs bill
Obama criticizes GOP senators for not supporting jobs bill, says they obstruct progress
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' President Barack Obama is criticizing Republican senators in the wake of the failure of his jobs bill to survive a crucial test vote. But he says that vote, in his words, "is by no means the end of this fight."

All 46 Republicans in the Senate and two Democrats voted against advancing the jobs bill Tuesday night.

In a statement after the vote, Obama said his bill contains proposals Republicans have supported in the past but that the GOP had obstructed the Senate from moving forward on the jobs bill.



Obama says he will work with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to see that individual proposals in the bill gain a vote as soon as possible.

Obama says that each vote will lead to lawmakers having to explain their positions.
