President Obama Weekly YouTube Video for 2-16-2013
In this week’s address, President Obama calls for quick action on the proposals he made during the State of the Union to grow our economy and create jobs, including making America a magnet for manufacturing, strengthening our education system through high-quality preschool for every child, and raising the minimum wage.
It’s nice to see a focus on education in America as it has been lagging behind rest of the world for some time now. Though it is hard to see how we can move forward with these goals with the GOP’s continued unmoving stance that we must cut spending on everything, instead of increasing it. Even when it has been proven time again that the spending that goes into much of these things, such as education, is actually a huge investment in America’s future. Some of these investments return more that what is invested through overall long term GDP growth.
Anyway, check out President Barack Obama’s weekly video address as he lays out his goals to boost American public education.
