Obama Praises Bipartisan Push On Senate Jobs Bill

President Barack Obama is praising senators from both parties who helped push a bipartisan jobs bill past a Republican filibuster.

After the bill passed a legislative hurdle on Monday, Obama said Americans want to see Washington put aside its partisanship and put the country back to work. Obama says the bill is just part of the administration's efforts to repair the economy. He says creating jobs remains the White House's top priority.

The measure moved forward with the backing of five Republicans, including the chamber's newest member, Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts.
