Bypassing Congress, Obama unveils latest jobs push for veterans

(CNN) - President Barack Obama unveiled three executive actions Monday aimed at helping unemployed veterans secure private-sector employment, the White House's latest effort to bypass Congress with initiatives aimed at spurring economic growth.

Flanked by members of veterans associations in the Rose Garden, the president announced three new programs the White House says will reduce the time it takes a veteran to find a job. It's part of what the White has dubbed the "We Can't Wait" campaign – a series of moves Obama says he can initiate without congressional authorization.
