A jobs bill that will pass in Congress? Sen. Coons and Sen. Rubio on bipartisan bill to boost hiring

As Congress continues to wrangle over jobs legislation, two senators from opposite sides of the aisle are introducing a more modest, bipartisan bill they hope will gain support from their colleagues. 

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Democratic Senator Chris Coons of Delaware introduced the American Growth, Recovery, Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Act (AGREE) on Capitol Hill yesterday. The legislation would give tax breaks to small businesses, provide incentives to hire veterans, an implement regulation reform, among others.

Christine Romans speaks to Sen. Coons and Sen. Rubio about why the American people need a bipartisan bill – and why they think it can pass a gridlocked Congress.
