President to travel through NY on bus tour

Posted:

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) - President Barack Obama will spend the latter part of next week riding a bus through New York to talk about the economy and building the middle class.
    
The White House says the president will make stops next Thursday and Friday in New York and Pennsylvania during a two-day bus tour to discuss another cornerstone of his vision for a better bargain for the middle class.

The White House says more details on the President's travel will be released as they become available.
    
Obama last month began a series of speeches around the country on his ideas for how to build the middle class and boost the economy.
    
The trips have taken him to Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Tennessee and Arizona to discuss how spending money on roads and bridges, investing in manufacturing and helping homeowners can lead to economic growth.
    
The tour is also meant to help Obama lay the groundwork for the fall debate with Congress over the budget.
