House Republican leaders say they are rejecting President Barack Obama's jobs proposals to rebuild schools, blighted neighborhoods and help keep state and local employees on the job.
In a memo to GOP lawmakers that was also issued publicly, House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders restated their views that Obama's jobs bill has some elements that Obama has proposed that they like such as tax cuts for small businesses and passage of free trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and South Korea.
The Ohio Republican also said he's willing to negotiate on extending payroll tax cuts for both workers and employers. Boehner and his GOP colleagues say that Obama's move to tax wealthier people claiming itemized deductions will hurt churches and other nonprofits.
