Obama Will Announce He’s Sending ‘Jobs’ Legislation to Congress

The “plan” now has a name, and it isn’t “stimulus” or the “No, seriously, this time it’s gonna work” bill.

From ABC News:

This evening, President Obama will do more than call for job creation, he will announce he is sending legislation to Congress for quick action.

“The president will unveil tonight The American Jobs Act, a plan of bipartisan ideas to create jobs right now and is fully paid for,” Communications director Dan Pfeiffer told ABC News.

The final price tag is still being calculated but it could reach $400 billion, paid for by savings elsewhere in government.

And it is crafted to appeal to Republicans who have control of the House, where all money bills must begin their legislative track.

The catch is that “still being calculated” part. In a couple of days the total jumped from $300 billion to $400 billion?

If you can’t or won’t watch tonight’s speech announcing the “American Recover and Reinvestment Jobs Act,” here is the speech, and subsequent Democrat promotion of the plan, in a nutshell, courtesy of the NRSC:

Update: Jay Carney reiterates that the plan is “fully paid for.” Can’t wait to hear how that one’s explained.
