The Obama campaign sent out an email today asking supporters to urge Congress to at least vote on the president’s jobs bill almost immediately after Democratic majority leader Harry Reid blocked a vote on the bill in the Senate.
On the Senate floor today, Republican leader Mitch McConnell asked for unanimous consent to proceed on voting on the bill. Reid, who has struggled to find enough votes for the bill in the Democratic caucus, objected to the motion and killed the opportunity for a vote.

About ten minutes later, Jim Messina, Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, emailed this message to supporters:
President Obama is in Dallas today urging Americans who support the American Jobs Act to demand that Congress pass it already.
Though it's been nearly a month since he laid out this plan, House Republicans haven't acted to pass it. And House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is out there actually bragging that they won't even put the jobs package up for a vote -- ever.
It's not clear which part of the bill they now object to: building roads, hiring teachers, getting veterans back to work. They're willing to block the American Jobs Act -- and they think you won't do anything about it.
But here's something you can do: Find Republican members of Congress on Twitter, call them out, and demand they pass this bill....
So will the Obama campaign be asking its supporters to "call out" Harry Reid and "demand" he and Senate Democrats pass the bill?
[color=limegreen]President Barack Obama told hundreds of community college students in Mesquite that the time for action is now.
He asked students at Eastfield College to reach out to their congressional leaders - by any means possible - and call on them to pass his $450 billion jobs bill. Obama tells Dallas students that it's time for action

Obama is flopping around in an attempt to save his Presidency. He and Reid apparently don't get along even though Reid was a leader in getting Obama to run. Reid has been said to have made the comment that he doesn't work for Obama. I expect things to get bad before we see the end of the Obama Administration The closer he comes to losing the tighter the grip.
