The American Jobs Act Bus Tour

The American Jobs Act Bus Tour took President Obama from the mountains of North Carolina to the Tidewater of Virginia — a road trip spanning more than 500 miles. The President talked infrastructure in Asheville, sat down with teachers in Jamestown, met with veterans in Hampton, and visited a fire station in Chesterfield.

Throughout the trip, President Obama pressed Congress to take action and create jobs immediately by passing the American Jobs Act. In community after community, he challenged lawmakers get to work and pass every element of the American Jobs Act, piece-by-piece — starting with the proposal to prevent teacher layoffs, keep police officers on the beat, and keep firefighters on the job.
