Obama urges bipartisan support for $30 bln job aid

WASHINGTON, May 25 (BestGrowthStock) – President Barack Obama,
seeking to boost U.S. jobs in an election year, called on
Tuesday for Congress to pass a $30 billion package to aid small
business lending that he hopes will lift hiring.

“I’m calling on Congress to pass (the) small business jobs
package as soon as possible,” Obama said in remarks prepared
for delivery at the White House. “I urge both chambers to act
on these proposals as soon as possible. This shouldn’t be a
partisan issue.”
