I am like a green olive tree
in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
for ever and ever.
– Psalm 28:8
I don't think God cares one way or another what bills are passed through Congress unless they affect people's spiritual lives. This whole idea that God is in favor of "social justice" is a very humanist reduction of the Gospel message. Yes, we should help the poor, but we need to do it by creating a culture of life that fundamentally transforms our society. Anything else is just putting bandaids on the problem, at best. And at worst, it creates a society which is dominated by an atheistic central power.
All of these bailouts so far have only managed to save a few very rich and powerful people from going bankrupt, while burdening the rest of us with huge government debts. So when President Obama says that he believes that God wants a new jobs bill he is not only promoting bad economics, but also making a mockery of the Christian faith.
Jesus, I trust in You!

UPDATE 1 [Nov 4]:
In the video when Obama says "In the House of Representatives, what have you guys been debating, John?" he is addressing Speaker of the House, John Boehner. So not only is he showing disrespect for Christians, but he is also directly mocking the Republican House Speaker.
The reason that the resolution to affirm that "In God We Trust" is the official motto of the United States was needed is because President Obama had declared that the US motto was "E pluribus unum" -- Latin for "Out of many, one" -- in one of his speeches. Given Obama's secular humanist policies that have the intent of erasing religion from public life in America, I'm convinced that this was no accident.
What has he done to help the economy? How does promoting "homosexual marriage" help to make us a stronger country at this time of crisis? It doesn't. It only serves to divide and weaken us. And no one is falling for Obama's charade that he is a Christian. He isn't.

UPDATE 2 [Nov 4]:
Ron Paul says that he is against the resolution reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the official US motto. Paul said, "I would have voted 'no' not because I don't like the motto and don't think we can use it but 'no' because we were telling the states what to do." (He didn't vote because he was not in Washington at the time due to his presidential campaign schedule.)
I for one am tiring of Pauls' excuse of "states rights" on so many issues. Shouldn't Congress have the right to enforce a national motto? Does he want to reduce the United States to a loose confederation of states like the European Union? The strength of the United States is in our unity. If we give too much power to the individual states then we are constantly threatened with rebellion every time a crisis comes along. Just look at what is happening with the EU over the economic crisis in Greece.
