WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is laying out an election year "to do" list for Congress, urging lawmakers to take another look at proposals to promote job creation and help families refinance their mortgages.
The White House says Obama will discuss his list Tuesday at a college science complex in Albany, N.Y. The president has charged repeatedly that Republicans in Congress have blocked his economic agenda while millions of Americans are out of work.
The items on Obama's list include a number of issues he has promoted before - among them, eliminating tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and offering new tax credits for small businesses and clean energy.
The president plans to discuss another measure to help homeowners refinance their homes on Friday in Nevada.
