Gov. Jack Markell, the Democratic governor of Delaware and the vice chairman of the National Governors Association, told The Hill that the meeting was “very good” and said many of the governors were responsive to ideas about bypassing Congress.

“There was a sense that none of us should wait, we can’t wait for things to happen in Congress,” Markell said of the meeting. “We’re going to do what we can do [now].”


The Democratic governors discussed the three major job goals from Obama’s State of the Union address: building manufacturing [only if its union], training workers [funds for union campaigners] and increasing American-made energy [green slush fund for campaign supporters].
