President Obama ripped Congress on Wednesday for passing a resolution to reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the nation’s motto while his jobs bill still sits in limbo.

In a speech calling on Congress to pass legislation to improve the country’s faltering infrastructure, Obama mocked Congress for holding frivolous votes instead of considering the American Jobs Act.

“If Congress tells you they don’t have time, they’ve got time to do it. … In the House of Representatives, what have you guys been debating? … You’ve been debating a commemorative coin for baseball? You have legislation reaffirming that ‘In God We Trust’ is our motto? That’s not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people to work.”

It’s nice that Congress has finally found an issue that both parties can agree on; the “In God We Trust” resolution passed by a 369 to 9 margin. Unfortunately, the resolution doesn’t have anything to do with America’s sky high unemployment, or its huge budget deficit, or its continuing struggles in Afghanistan, or any other pertinent issue.

No wonder Congress’ approval rating sits at a pathetic 9 percent.

Three states that narrowly swung from Barack Obama in 2012 to Donald Trump in 2016 seem likely to swing back in 2020. Polling currently gives a consistent and solid lead to Democrat Joe Biden in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Should Biden carry all three of these swing states and keep all of the states Hillary Clinton won in 2016, he will win an Electoral College majority and the presidency.

According to RealClear Politics' polling average, Biden currently enjoys a 4-point lead in Pennsylvania, a 6.4-point lead in Michigan, and a 6.7-point lead in Wisconsin.
