WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is heading to the home state of his chief GOP antagonist on Capitol Hill, House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nuhr), to promote his jobs plan.
The president's trip to swing-state Ohio on Tuesday is part of a high-profile public sales push to get his $447 billion plan through a divided Congress. It comes a day after White House officials revealed that they plan to pay for the legislation with higher taxes, earning criticism from Boehner and other congressional Republicans.
Obama will visit a school that's undergoing renovations to highlight spending in the bill aimed at improving school facilities nationwide.
