President Obama Pushes His Jobs Bill in WH News Conference

Hosted by

At a White House news conference today, President Obama felt comfortable the Senate Democrats' plan for a surtax on millionaires to help pay for his jobs plan. He conceded that Republicans in Congress aren't likely to go along, but insisted that his proposals ought to be embraced by Republicans because the bill "reflects those ideas that have traditionally been supported by both Democrats and Republicans." Jamie Tarabay is White House editor for the National Journal.
