WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he’s heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame to stress how tourism can lead to good-paying jobs.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says he’ll be in Cooperstown, New York, on Thursday.
Obama also is urging Congress to spend more to modernize U.S. bridges, roads and ports. He says first-class infrastructure attracts first-class jobs.
Obama warns that almost 700,000 jobs are at risk if Congress doesn’t authorize more transportation dollars by the end of summer.
In the Republican address, Sen. John McCain of Arizona says reported delays in care for veterans are unconscionable. He says the Department of Veterans Affairs needs to be overhauled.
