The White House is "bracing for the defeat of President Obama's jobs bill," the Hill reports. That's hardly surprising, since Republicans control the House--except that it is the Senate, where Democrats hold a majority, that is expected to vote down the $447 billion Stimulus Jr. plan.
Unnamed White House officials "emphasized their view that it is Republicans who are holding up the . . . plan, and they downplayed Democratic defections," the report adds. "And officials warned that Republican presidential candidates who follow the lead of Congress . . . will be painted with the same brush as a GOP Congress that voted against the jobs bill at a critical time."
