President Barack Obama travels to Missouri Friday to tout the gains made by the auto industry and criticize Republican proposals on defunding his signature health-care plan. As the WSJ reported earlier, president is speaking at a Ford stamping plant in Liberty, Missouri, highlighting the growth of auto manufacturing on his watch. We suspect more than a few words will be spilled explaining how he feels about what The House just did to Obamacare...
- *OBAMA SAYS DEBT-LIMIT INCREASE SHOULD BE `ROUTINE'
- *OBAMA SAYS FAILURE TO INCREASE DEBT-LIMIT MAKES U.S. `DEADBEAT'
- *OBAMA SAYS CONGRESS IS FOCUSED ON `TRYING TO MESS WITH ME'
The trip comes on the same day that the House passed legislation that would fund the government through Dec. 15 but would defund Obamacare. Thus, the president is expected to use his speech Friday to underscore his opposition to the bill and his unwillingness to negotiate with Republicans over raising the nation’s debt ceiling.
