Obama: Partisian Divisions Holding Back Economic Growth

President Obama insists the economy continues to improve, despite the climate of “crisis politics” in the nation’s capital. 

Speaking at a “Wall Street Journal” business conference, the President said partisan divisions are holding back more robust growth. 

Obama also defended the healthcare reform law.  He acknowledged the rocky rollout of HealthCare.Gov and said the federal website for the new healthcare exchanges is getting fixed.  The President argued that the law will start repairing a “broken” healthcare system that leaves millions of Americans without quality, affordable healthcare. 

Obama made another big pitch for immigration reform.  He said it will help grow the economy and reduce deficits by bringing millions of workers out of the shadows and expanding the tax base.  The Senate has passed a comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill but the effort is stalled in the Republican-led House.
