WASHINGTON (CNNMoney) -- At least one House Republican is having a chuckle over the "American Jobs Act."
Earlier this week, no House Democrat had officially filed a bill introducing the $447 billion jobs package that President Obama had sent to Congress.
The president, of course, dubbed his proposal the American Jobs Act.
Well, Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, liked that moniker so much he slapped it on a bill of his own -- one that would never be embraced by any Democrat.
Why? The two-page bill zeroes out corporate income tax.
Fear not, White House: House Democrats can introduce Obama's bill using the same "American Jobs Act" label. And in the Senate, Democrats have secured the name on their version of it.
Meanwhile, Gohmert not only swiped the name but poked fun at the administration.
"Unlike President Obama's bill, which clocks in at 155 pages, the American Jobs Act is only two pages," Gohmert said in a statement. "If we really want to create jobs and grow the economy, we must pass 'The American Jobs Act' now."
