KYUK will be airing the President’s job speech this afternoon. President Obama will be addressing the nation before a rare joint session of the congress.
The nationally televised address will put him face to face with Republican lawmakers who have opposed his agenda and who have vowed to vote down any new spending he might propose.
However, the unemployment rate has not dropped significantly since the 2008 recession and new August numbers are ready to be released Friday. Obama is now under pressure to lay out his jobs plan. In seeking a joint session of Congress to deliver it, some say he is turning the effort into a public relations campaign.
The speech will air on 640 AM at 3 pm. You can also catch it on our stream at kyuk.org
