Weekly Address: Republicans Blocking Progress

In his Weekly Presidential Youtube-Radio Address, President Obama goes after the GOP for obstructionism and all around partisanship on many issues that are languishing in the Senate, from BP liability caps to unemployment benefits to votes on Obama's political appointment's, most of which are non-controversial and have bi-partisan support.

The President calls on Republicans in Congress to put scoring political points aside, and instead to focus on solving the problems facing the nation. At the time of this address, the Republican leadership is blocking progress on a bill to boost the economy, retain jobs for teachers and cops, and help people buy their first home; another bill which would hold oil companies accountable for any disasters they cause by removing the current $75 million liability cap; and 136 highly qualified men and women who have been nominated to government positions.
