Obama calls for end to 'political circus' over jobs
Calling for unity and an end to a "political circus" US President Barack Obama told Republicans to immediately pass a $447 billion jobs plan to jolt the stalled economy and cheer a disillusioned nation."These are difficult years for our country. But we are Americans. We are tougher than the times that we live in, and we are bigger than our politics have been," Obama said, pleading for unity in a speech to a polarized Congress.
