Almost two weeks after President Obama spoke on jobs before a joint session of Congress, and demanded that Congress “pass this bill,” the Senate has done precious little to move forward on the president’s demand.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., admitted Monday that the Senate floor was “pretty well jammed now,” suggesting that there may not be time to move on the bill until next month. The Senate has been working through the Trade Adjustment Assistance this week, as well as the Continuing Resolution and FEMA funding. Next week, the Senate has a planned recess for the Jewish new Year Rosh Hashanah. Reid has indicated the first item up after that is Chinese currency.

If Reid wanted to bring Obama’s jobs bill to the Senate floor for debate and a vote, of course he could, as Reid sets the Senate schedule. He has not done so yet, which is perhaps most telling about how he believes the Democratic caucus feels about the jobs bill.
