Obama chides Congress for departing with much left
Saturday - 9/22/2012, 10:17am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is faulting Congress for leaving town with several pieces of unfinished business on its plate, including measures to help veterans, farmers and homeowners.
Obama accuses lawmakers in his weekend radio and Internet address of being "more worried about their jobs and their paychecks" than their constituents.
He says lawmakers missed opportunities to help the economy and wants them to come back in November to finish work on a veterans' job plan, farm policy and helping homeowners refinance.
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions says in the Republican address that Senate Democrats adjourned having failed to meet their "most basic obligations" of producing a budget plan and didn't address looming tax hikes and defense cuts.
Sessions says if given the chance, Republicans will get the government "under control."
