President Obama to lay out jobs plan in speech to joint session of Congress Sept. 7
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The White House says President Barack Obama will lay out his jobs plan in a primetime address next week to a joint session of Congress.

Obama sent a letter Tuesday to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asking to speak to both chambers on Sept. 7 at 8 p.m.

With the economy on the rails and Republicans on the attack, the much-anticipated speech is expected to include proposals for economic growth such as tax credits and infrastructure spending along with plans for shrinking the deficit.

In his letter to Boehner and Reid, Obama said Washington must answer the call to put aside politics and do what's best for the country to grow the economy and create jobs.
