ABC News: Obama’s Economic Roadshow: Will More Speeches Matter?
ABC News - July 22, 2013
Pfieffer says Obama's speeches will include "new ideas and new pushes for ideas he has discussed before." An administration official told ABC News the campaign will touch on manufacturing, jobs, health care, housing and education, but declined to provide details.
"Any idea would be more than what the GOP has offered," said Brad Woodhouse, former Democratic National Committee spokesman and president of Americans United for Change.
National unemployment was 7.6 percent in June with 11.8 million Americans looking for work. When Obama took office in January 2009, unemployment was 7.8 percent; it later peaked at 10 percent before steadily improving.
