So I log onto Facebook and see a number of my liberal associates posting phone numbers of legislative leaders in the US Congress so people can call and encourage them to pass this proposed bill. But how can you pass a bill that, as of right now, doesn't exist? Is this another case of having to pass a bill to find out what's in it?

What Jobs Bill?
Last night, President Barack Obama held a joint session of Congress to introduce what he is calling the American Jobs Act. Obama repeatedly encouraged to pass the bill "right away", but no bill has actually been introduced to either house of the United States Congress. The Hill is reporting that the GOP House caucus sent a letter to Obama asking him to send the bill to the House so that they can study it in committee and have it scored by the Congressional Budget Office.
