Obama pushing 'to do' list for Congress
Monday, May 7, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama plans to lay out an election year "to do" list for Congress, urging lawmakers to take another look at proposals to promote job creation and help families refinance their mortgages.
The White House says Obama will detail the list during a stop Tuesday at a college science complex in Albany, N.Y. The president has repeatedly charged that Republicans in Congress have blocked his economic agenda even though millions of Americans are out of work.
The items on Obama's list include a number of issues he has promoted before -- among them eliminating tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and new tax credits for small businesses and clean energy.
The president plans to discuss another measure to help homeowners refinance their homes on Friday in Nevada.
