Political posturing can't take precedence over jobs

Almost a month ago, President Barack Obama laid out his plan to create jobs and invest in our infrastructure. The bottom line: more people working and better roads, bridges and schools.

As the president asked in his speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, since when are Republicans against building roads? And I'd add, since when are they against creating jobs?

Sadly, I think the answer has to do with political posturing becoming more important than actually getting things done. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and the House Republicans have made their priorities clear.

Let's keep the pressure on them to not let the same thing happen this time around.
