All aboard the Failure Express.
(Politico) — President Obama used a campaign-sounding Labor Day speech to demand that Republicans support the jobs plan he will unveil in a speech on Thursday.
Speaking to workers in Detroit, Obama wouldn’t give specifics about his proposal (he said he “didn’t want to give everything away right here, because I want you all to tune in on Thursday”). But he said that “more than one million unemployed construction workers” could be put to work with his plan.
“We just need Congress to get on board,” Obama said to cheers. “Let’s get America back to work.”
The crowd then began chanting “four more years.”
