Obama to offer quicker payments to small business

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Small businesses that are owed money under government contracts will get that money more quickly, under a plan being announced today by President Barack Obama during a visit to North Carolina.

The government currently has 30 days in which to make those payments, but the White House says Obama wants that cut to 15 days.

He visited a machine company to promote the jobs plan he outlined to Congress last week. Obama is highlighting the help he says his plan would extend to small businesses.

The head of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, says Obama’s travels around the country to build support for the jobs bill are campaign events masquerading as official business. He says Obama is “in love with campaigning.”

Obama touts jobs bill benefits for small business during NC visit

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — President Barack Obama is touting the benefits of his new jobs bill for small businesses, which he says have not rebounded from the recession as well as large corporations.

After touring a machine company in North Carolina, Obama pitched initiatives in the $447 billion plan that he says would give tax breaks to small businesses and allow them to hire more workers.

Obama says the bill would put 19,000 thousands construction workers in North Carolina back on the job. The administration hasn’t released estimates of how many jobs the bill would create nationwide.

Obama’s speech in North Carolina was his third event to promote the jobs bill in as many days.

Obama to promote jobs plan in Raleigh visit

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — President Barack Obama is making his second visit since June to North Carolina’s Research Triangle region, this time to promote his $450 billion jobs program.

Obama is set to visit a small business in Apex Wednesday morning before addressing what’s anticipated to be a big crowd at Reynolds Coliseum on the campus of North Carolina State University.

The visit won’t only serve as a chance to sell the jobs program he unveiled in a speech to Congress last week. North Carolina is likely to be one of the most hotly-contested states in the country during next year’s presidential election.

Obama won the state in 2008, but since then Republicans have gained the advantage, winning control of the General Assembly for the first time in over 100 years.
