President Obama is back at the White House after the three-day American Jobs Act Bus Tour where he traveled through North Carolina and Virginia. Over the past few days he had the opportunity to hear from folks in Asheville, North Carolina, sit down with teachers in Jamestown, North Carolina, and meet with veterans in Hampton, Virginia.
He also made a few unannounced stops to grab lunch at Countryside Barbeque and picked out a few pumpkins at Wood’s Orchards Farm Market. Whether he was talking to folks in Millers Creek, North Carolina or Emporia, Virginia he heard the same message at each stop along the way: Leaders in Washington need to work together and pass this bill, piece by piece, to put folks back to work and get the economy moving at a faster pace.
It’s time for Congress to meet their responsibility, put their party politics aside and take action on jobs right now.
Take a quick look at the front pages over the last few days:
