President Barack Obama unveiled on Thursday night, September 8, 2011 his new $447 billion jobs plan that aims to put millions of unemployed Americans back to work. He urged the divided Congress to support his proposed jobs plan which he believes to be the right medicine for the ailing U.S. economy, international news reported.

The $447 billion jobs plan will be submitted to Congress in a bill called “American Jobs Act” in which Obama promised that would give a “jolt to an economy that has stalled.”

Obama said in a released excerpts of his speech that the “American Jobs Act” will put unemployed people back to work and can help those who are working get more money. There are programs that would create more jobs for teachers, construction workers and more jobs for the long-term unemployed. The plan also includes tax break for every working American, every small business and companies who hire new workers.

“I am sending this Congress a plan that you should pass right away. It’s called the American Jobs Act. There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the kind of proposal that’s been supported by both Democrats and Republicans – including many who sit here tonight. And everything in this bill will be paid for. Everything,” as quoted from the released excerpts of the U.S. president’s speech.
