Your Take: Does Biz Have an Obligation?
The president addressed the US Chamber of Commerce today in an effort to convince the business community to begin hiring again. The Wall Street Journal writes that the president framed his pitch to business leaders as a "responsibility to America." The president discussed what his adminstration is doing to create a foundation to encourage economic growth and at the same time challenged business to do its part. "But as we work with you to make America a better place to do business, Im hoping that all of you are thinking what you can do for America. Ask yourselves what you can do to hire more American workers, what you can do to support the American economy and invest in this nation," President Obama said.
