Fired Up on Labor Day

Today, President Obama spoke at the Labor Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was on fire and on point. He made it clear that Democrats are not going to give up trying to help ordinary Americans through blistering Republican obstructionism. He recognized the contributions of organized labor in building America's middle class, and proposed a $50 billion infrastructure plan to rebuild this country's roads, highways, rail and broadband connections. Watch:



Republicans are already opposed to America's infrastructure building. Expect a more detailed analysis from me on the President's plan later on. But the fight for the mid-terms is on, with working people, Democrats and President Obama on one side and multinationals and the GOP on the other. Obama has drawn the battle lines, and if the GOP thinks it's over, we've got a surprise for them. We will fight for this country to keep moving forward. Because we love this country.
