What looked to be a low-key day for the president is now a bit more exciting with a presidential address from the Rose Garden added to the schedule at 10:40 AM. The president will talk about his new jobs proposal and announce his plan to sent the legislative language to Congress sometime this evening. Here’s how the White House announced the event:
On Monday, the President will make remarks in the Rose Garden on the need for Congress to pass the American Jobs Act. He will announce that he will be sending the bill to Congress on Monday evening when Congress comes back into session. He will call on Congress to pass the bill, which contains the kinds of proposals to grow the economy and create jobs that have been supported by both parties in the past. He will be joined at the Rose Garden event by people from across the country who would benefit from the American Jobs Act, including teachers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, small business owners, and veterans.
