Obama promotes infrastructure projects to AFL-CIO

By David Jackson, USA Today

President Obama told unionized construction workers today that he is pushing for new infrastructure projects, but congressional Republicans keep blocking him.

“Time and time again, the Republicans have gotten together and said no,” Obama told members of the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO.

In calling for better roads, bridges, airports, Obama said “the truth is, the only way we can do it on a scale that is needed is with bold action from Congress — they’re the ones with the purse strings.”
