Reaction: Obama hosts jobs summit

On Thursday President Barack Obama is going before Congress to pitch an economic plan on job creation. Obama is offering a 300-billion package of ideas that would affect people and their jobs, and assures businesses they would get their own tax breaks then promises a long-term plan to pay for it all.

Where is this money coming from? More borrowing? We need a more realistic plan, we don't need anymore debt. And how many jobs his plan would create? Americans would love to know how many. The unemployment rate is at 9.1 percent.
