Obama's Plan for Creating Jobs The President is on his way to Europe to pick up his Nobel Peace Prize , but early today he met with leaders of both parties to talk about jobs. Afterward, he repeated the outline of a plan proposed yesterday in a speech in Washington.
Obama's Plan for Creating Jobs Today, before leaving for Europe to pick up his Nobel Prize, the President met with leaders of both parties to talk about jobs. During the meeting, he acknowledged the "less than full bi-partisan support for the Recovery Act and other steps that have broken the free-fall of our economy." Afterward, he repeated the outline of a plan proposed yesterday in a speech in Washington. Saying that the TARP bailout won't cost as much as predicted , the President wants part of the windfall to help create jobs. With the employment picture improving, what's the rush? Should the unexpected money all go to pay down the deficit?
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
