Obama to tout job-creating efforts in Ohio speech


WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will travel to Ohio on Jan. 22 to build public support for his jobs agenda. Obama will meet with workers, small business owners and community leaders in Lorain County, near Cleveland. It’s the second stop on the president’s “White House to Main Street” tour. He visited Allentown, Pa. last month.

Obama has called for a new burst of federal spending, perhaps $150 billion or more, to create jobs and steady the economy. The spending would be focused on infrastructure improvements, tax cuts for small business, and retrofitting millions of homes to make them more energy-efficient
