U.S. President Barack Obama says he is prepared to act when Congress will not to create jobs and opportunities for Americans.
In his weekly address Saturday, Obama spoke of three things he says his administration is doing right now to increase employment.
The president says he is working to help "more businesses bring jobs to America from overseas." Secondly, Obama says he will boost tourism by making it "easier for more foreign visitors to visit and spend money at America's attractions" and national parks. Finally, the president said he will push to improve the country's infrastructure.
In the Republican address, Senator John McCain, who ran against Obama for the presidency in 2008, said delays in care for the country's military veterans are "unconscionable," and that the Department of Veterans Affairs needs a complete overhaul.
