Democratic members of Oregon’s Congressional delegation react to President Obama's Jobs Act speech.  Congressman Earl Blumenauer says he thinks Republicans will get on board with the proposals in Obama's plan: “ I would say 90% of them are things that have actually been supported by Republicans in the past.” Congressman Peter DeFazio points to tax cuts, which he says, are there specifically for Republicans, not that he approves: “Tax cuts, we’ve been doing for 11 years. They don’t put people back to work. And you don’t have a job, you don’t get a tax cut.” Congressman Kurt Schrader: “I think some of the small business pieces, will probably end up seeing the light of day.” All three like proposals to create jobs through improvements to infrastructure.
