Prankster Congressman Swipes 'American Jobs Act' Name from Obama

Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas, whom some might call a "character," is working hard for the American people today, by pulling a middle-school-level prank on the president! You know how Obama keeps demanding that Congress pass his American Jobs Act right now? Well, Louie Gohmert filed his own bill under that very name this afternoon. What a funnyman! This is a game-changer.

The Hill reports:

Calling the president's plan a "disaster," Gohmert said that he checked to see "who filed the 'American Jobs Act' for the president, here in the House, since we had to do it 'now, right away," but discovered that the plan had not been officially introduced in the House.

So, at 1:20pm Gohmert filed his own version of a jobs bill, under the title included on the president's legislation distributed to members of Congress two-days prior.

Gohmert's two-page jobs bill would cut the corporate income tax rate from 35% to 0%, an action which, in insider-speak, is known as "eliminating the corporate income tax."

He sure got that Obama good! Hehe what a hero.
