Obama and Republicans Feuding over Jobs Plan

WASHINGTON --

President Barack Obama and House Republicans continue their feud over how to create jobs.

In the weekly radio and Internet addresses today, Obama demands
Congress pass his $447 billion jobs bill while the GOP counters with a call for less government red tape.

Obama says it's "time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law."

In the Republican address, Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith, made a
pitch for legislation in the House that would reduce regulatory
requirements on businesses.

Griffith says "excessive regulations have been a source of frustration for businesses trying to stay afloat." He says Obama "should call on the Democrat-led Senate to follow the House" in passing red tape-cutting measures.

Both efforts face little chance of success as all-or-nothing proposals in the divided legislature.
