President Touts Jobs Bill at NC State

Sep 14, 2011

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.
