President Obama Introduces Congressional 'To Do List'

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:23 PM EDT

ALBANY -- President Obama laid out a five point list of things he wants Congress to address immediately - all in the name of job creation.


President Obama delivered a campaign-style speech on Tuesday at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.  He said that even though this is an election year, now is not the time for inaction.


"Six months is plenty of time for Democrats and Republicans to get together and do the right thing, taking steps that will spur additional job creation right now.  Just saying 'no' to ideas that we know will help our economy isn't an option.  There's too much at stake.  We've all got to pull in the same direction," he said.


President Obama's list included passing tax credits for small businesses, approving a program to help veterans find work, and measures to make it easier for homeowners to refinance.  The President also reiterated his call for Congress to extend low student loan rates, which are set to double on July 1.
