President Touts Jobs Bill at NC State
President Barack Obama spoke to thousands of people on the North Carolina State Campus this afternoon. The president is promoting his 450-billion dollar jobs bill. He told the crowd the bill would provide money for important infrastructure projects.
President Obama: "In North Carolina alone there are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be prepared. Four of them are near here, on the belt-line. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls?"
The President added that if Congress passes his bill, the typical working family in North Carolina will get a 13-hundred dollar tax cut next year.
