Reactions to Obama's Job Plan

OPB | Sept. 9, 2011 9:06 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 10:35 p.m.

President Barack Obama is rolling out a new job plan Thursday that could make a difference to millions of unemployed Americans.

Many early reports about the president’s address to a joint session of Congress centered around quibbles over scheduling. The speech, originally planned for Wednesday, would have conflicted with the Republican presidential debate. Thursday’s speech at 4 p.m. Pacific Time is scheduled earlier than usual in order to wrap up before the NFL season opener.

Now, the buzz among analysts and job seekers is a rumored $300 to $400 billion job creation plan that could fund new building projects, cut taxes to state and local governments and modify pending free trade agreements with South Korea, Panama and Colombia.

What stood out to you in the president’s speech? How will a new job plan affect you?
