The Short List - September 9, 2011

International
Domestic
  • President Obama laid out a jobs plan last night that would utilize a combination of tax cuts and spending to try and get people back to work.  Ezra Klein outlines the major provisions of the plan, while Chris Cillizza likes the "agressive tone" the president used, but doesn't believe Obama won over any independents last night.  Speaker Boehner says the plan merits consideration and Rep. Bachmann disliked the plan almost before she even heard it.

  • Over two dozen Senators gathered together to create a frame work to take to the Supercommittee that would cut more then the mandated $1.5 trillion from the deficit.

  • Wal-mart has brought back layaway shopping for the holiday season on select items.

  • Amazon and the state of California have reached a deal that will require Amazon to start collecting sales tax within a year.
