DescriptionVirginia Rep. Tom Perriello (D) on Monday implored the Senate to "get off its duff" and pass a jobs bill in order to help "families out there who are struggling."

The congressman stressed lawmakers had to adopt a "wartime mentality" with respect to job creation this year, and he urged them to consider funneling most repaid bank bailout money to taxpayers who are still without work.

"I think a lot of people across the aisle are waking up to how much of a crisis this job situation is," Perriello, a vulnerable House Democrat entering the 2010 election, told ABC's "Top Line."

"I think we need to take back that bailout money, put it into a jobs bill," he added. "We need the Senate to get off its duff and begin moving on jobs."
