House Democrats are going to push hard this week for passage of the President’s small business bill, The Hill reports. They are planning a coordinated effort to highlight the party's small business agenda.
Democrats will hold a conference call on Tuesday to push the legislation and highlight the small business tax cuts included in other bills that have already passed, according to The Hill.
President Obama has been holding Republicans responsible for not passing the bill when it was up for a vote in July. Congress will revisit the small jobs legislation in September.
Senate Republican leaders have said they don’t oppose the core of the bill but object to extraneous spending that Democrats have added to it. They also protested Democrats’ refusal to consider more than three GOP amendments to the bill, The Hill reports.
