Obama vows to press on with jobs bill

WASHINGTON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama vowed to keep pushing for passage of his $447 billion jobs package on Wednesday after the bill failed in the U.S. Senate, and said he would not take “no” for an answer.

“A Republican minority got together as a group and blocked this jobs bill from passing the Senate,” Obama told a Hispanic forum in Washington. “We will keep organizing and we will keep pressuring and we will keep voting until this Congress finally meets its responsibilities.”
