President Obama addressed the AFL-CIO Constitutional Convention in Pittsburgh today, Sept. 15.
He spoke about the urgent need for health care reform and reiterated his support for the Employee Free Choice Act.
These are the reforms I’m proposing. These are the reforms labor has been championing. These are the reforms the American people need. And these are the reforms I intend to sign into law.
Quality, affordable health insurance. A world-class education. Good jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced. A strong labor movement. That’s how we’ll lift up hardworking families. That’s how we’ll grow our middle class. That’s how we’ll put opportunity within reach in the United States of America.
