Senator John Barrasso discusses Obama's jobs proposal, Occupy Wall Street protests

President Obama took on Republicans yesterday, calling on them to explain their continued opposition to his jobs bill and saying that now is not the time for political gamesmanship.

The President also said that he would be open to the Senate Democrats' 5% "millionaires surtax" proposal, which they introduced Wednesday as a way to cover the cost of the President's $447 billion jobs initiative.

Today on American Morning, Senator John Barrasso (R- Wyo.) speaks with Carol Costello to explain his opposition to the president's jobs bill and to explain how he feels about the Occupy Wall Street protests occurring around the country.
