PressSec defends Job Acts, says admin. needs more time to consider China currency bill.
Carney reiterates admin. has “said all along we are open to different ways” to pay for Jobs Act.
PressSec: “We can’t be sitting back hoping that things get better…. It’s simply not an option to do nothing.”
Carney: “I don’t think we’ll get every Senator.”
On China currency bill, Carney says admin. agrees “more needs to be done,” but worries legislation would create “consistency issues” with foreign policy.
Carney dismisses charge Holder acted inappropriately in “Fast and Furious” case. Says Holder, “When he heard that he asked the Investigator General’s office to investigate.”
