Senate Democrats Carve Up Failed Jobs Bill

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats are unveiling one piece of President Barack Obama’s $447 billion jobs bill. It’s part of a series of bills as Congress carves up the sweeping legislation.

The new measure is a $35 billion aid package to state and local governments to help them avoid layoffs of teachers, police officers and firefighters. It’s virtually certain to be blocked by Republicans opposed to spending money to boost the economy.

The larger jobs measure failed to win a single GOP vote in the Senate last week.

Democrats credit earlier aid packages with saving almost 300,000 education jobs.

Obama is continuing his campaign-style effort to promote his jobs package in appearances in North Carolina on Monday.
