WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Obama will be talking jobs and the economy when he travels to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
A White House official tells CNN the president will deliver remarks on "the state of the economy, the future we need to seize, and the path we choose to get there."
The official said Obama will also touch on progress made in "building the New Foundation," a theme he addressed at Georgetown University last year.
"I want every American to know that each action we take and each policy we pursue is driven by a larger vision of America's future," the president said in his Georgetown speech. In that same speech, Obama touted the recovery Act, the bank capitalization program, and the housing plan as "necessary pieces of the recovery puzzle."
Obama is also expected to balance his upbeat tone with some reality on Wednesday, discussing "the work we have left to do," the official said.
