Obama’s ‘To-Do’ List Finds Few Takers
By Steven T. Dennis
It fits on a Post-it note, but some lawmakers are still confused by what’s on President Barack Obama’s “to-do” list — and so far, neither chamber has scheduled a vote on any of the five items the president has urged them to tackle “right now.”
When Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) outlined his agenda for the June work period this week, only one item from Obama’s to-do list made the cut — a business tax cut package. That’s the item most likely to win GOP support, given that Democrats at this point plan to follow the lead of House Republicans and simply borrow the money to pay for it.
