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

Summary: 
Watch the President’s economy speech live, then share a video response through YouTube. We’ll highlight some of your responses in the coming days and weeks.

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.
