Watch Live & Respond: President Obama’s Economy Speech in Osawatomie, Kansas

This afternoon, President Obama will be in Osawatomie, Kansas to talk about how he sees this as a make-or-break moment for the middle class and those working to join it.  Just over one hundred years ago, President Teddy Roosevelt came to Osawatomie and called for a New Nationalism, one where all Americans would get a fair chance, a square deal, and an equal opportunity to succeed. 

Today, President Obama will lay out the choice we face between a country in which too few do well while too many struggle to get by, and one where we’re all in it together – where everyone engages in fair play, everyone does their fair share, and everyone gets a fair shot.
