Statement by President Obama on Cloture Vote on Senate Jobs Bill

The American people want to see Washington put aside partisan differences and make progress on jobs, and today the Senate took one important step forward in doing that.  I’m grateful to the Democratic and Republican Senators who voted to support these investments in infrastructure and small businesses.  This is one of many efforts we need to tackle our economic challenges, and we will continue to work with Congress on additional job creation measures.  Jobs remain our top priority, and I look forward to working with members from both parties to get legislation signed, and the American people back to work.
