Obama gets Vote of Non-Confidence.

Ed Morrissey
No one in either house has offered to co-sponsor the American Jobs Act on whose immediate passage President Obama staked his seriousness.  The bills found one sponsor in each house but without a co-sponsor, they are dead.  This is the closest Congress gets to a parliamentary vote of non confidence.
“We have a federal system, not a parliamentary system, so our legislature doesn’t take votes of no-confidence to force an executive out of power. But given the high-profile rollout of the AJA by Obama, including his demand for a joint session to escalate pressure for action, the lack of any co-sponsors on these bills is about as close as we’ll get to a vote of no confidence in this executive short of an outright floor-vote failure in the Senate on the bill.”
