Conservative Nabs Naming Rights to ‘American Jobs Act’ After Obama Delay

President Obama repeatedly asked members of Congress to pass the American Jobs Act last week. But when no Democrat filed Obama’s bill after he presented it to Congress, a conservative congressman swiped the name for his own legislation.
The American Jobs Act introduced in the House of Representatives looks quite different from the version President Obama outlined in his speech to Congress. Instead of hiking taxes on working Americans to pay for another stimulus, Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) legislation offers a tax cut.
UPDATE: Gohmert’s bill now has a number. It’s HR 2911.
Text of the legislation is below.
