Last month, President Obama introduced his initiative to create jobs with a demand that Congress pass it without delay or revisions.

Now, weeks later, the Senate has killed it.

Erik Wasson, a staff writer with The Hill newspaper, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to provide an update.

After the Congressional death of Obama's jobs package, are there any other bills Congress could pass?

Also, the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness recently came out with its own proposals. Wasson also discussed the chances that Congress will take up some of those recommendations.
