Obama Sending American Jobs Act to Congress

SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama is not letting up on Congress after practically demanding last week that they quickly pass the American Jobs Act.

A White House official says the president will make remarks Monday morning at the Rose Garden, where he'll announce that he'll be sending the legislation to Capitol Hill that evening.

During his announcement, the official says Obama will be joined by people from across the country who would benefit from the American Jobs Act, including teachers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, small business owners and veterans.

The president unveiled the $447 billion economic stimulus package last Thursday night before a joint session of Congress.  According to Obama, the measure seeks to cut payroll taxes, provides tax breaks for small businesses that hire new workers and puts Americans to work on infrastructure projects.
