"68 major progressive organizations have sent a letter to President Obama urging him to present a 'big, bold' jobs program to the nation in his anticipated post-Labor Day address. Some of the organizations signing the letter, while praising the President for his return to an emphasis on jobs, are concerned that Obama’s plan may not be large enough to convince the nation that he is truly serious about down the unemployment that has trapped millions of families -- especially if he limits his proposals to what is acceptable to hostile Republicans in the Congress."
