Obama keeps pressure on Republicans with jobs plan

Washington (CNN) - Keeping up pressure on congressional Republicans after his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama launched three days of campaign-style speeches on Wednesday with a visit to a North Carolina manufacturing plant that he said epitomized his proposals for job creation.

Obama toured the Linamar Corporation plant in Asheville before telling workers that Congress should pass his proposals laid out in Tuesday night's speech that call for more job training and ending tax subsidies that reward sending jobs overseas.

    Of course the sides are entrenched in their core values. The question is how many issues will they be willilng to compromise on. When you have the House Speaker and the entire Tea Party sworn to never compromise "with this President" the prospect of getting something done that makes a difference looks pretty grim. No wonder Congress has a 14% approval rating, at last check.
