House of Representatives Breaking News: Obama Seeks Second-term Jolt With Economic Speech

U.S. President Barack Obama sought to inject momentum into his economic and domestic policy agenda with a speech designed to clarify his vision for his second term and hammer Republicans in the House of Representatives for getting in his way. Republicans in the House-of-Representatives will consider granting citizenship to the children of illegal-immigrants, marking their first step toward dealing with the millions of undocumented-foreigners living in the United States. The U.S. Senate advanced a $54 billion measure that increases funding for transportation and housing projects, underscoring a spending clash with Republicans in the House of Representatives that threatens a government shutdown on October 1.
