Reaction to the President’s speech on the economy


President Obama launched a major effort yesterday to turn the public’s attention back to the economy. In the first of a series of speeches over the next few months, the President laid out his vision for growing the economy and creating jobs. We get reaction and perspective from JIM TANKERSLEY, Economic Policy Correspondent for the Washington Post, and CARL VAN HORN of Rutgers University‘s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.
