Since the beginning of the Administration, President Obama has worked to develop a New Foundation for economic recovery and future prosperity for the nation. This means working with small and minority businesses so they participate in our economic recovery, implementing health care reform to increase access to those who need it most, revitalizing schools to provide the highest quality education possible to children in urban and metropolitan communities, investing in communities to make them more livable, sustainable, and prosperous over the long term, and defending civil rights and civil liberties as we continue to remove barriers to hope and opportunity for all Americans.
During an appearance at Laborfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Labor Day, September 6, 2010, President Obama expressed his commitment to America’s workers and the middle class and explained his plan to create jobs and boost the economy by investing in the nation’s infrastructure.
He made very clear the new foundation that his administration is laying out for the country to get America back to work, to help people in need and make it very clear the choice America will have in the fall.
