Obama Says He’s Working to Create Jobs Without Congress’s Help

President Barack Obama said he is working to foster job growth in ways that don’t require Congressional approval and plans to outline steps next week to spur the nation’s manufacturing and energy industries.

The president said today that proposals advanced this week to boost tourism are among the many actions he’s taken to create jobs. Separately, in a video to supporters, he said his State of the Union address next week will include plans for “good jobs” at factories, boost energy development and create an economy “where everybody gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everybody plays by the same set of rules.”
