PRESS CALL ADVISORY: CAP Experts to Detail The Essential Elements for Obama Jobs Plan
Contact: Laura Pereyra
Washington, D.C.—This September, President Barack Obama is expected to release a jobs plan targeting jobs creation. The president’s plan must create private-sector jobs by spurring demand for the goods and services that businesses provide. The president’s proposals must reach further than simply extending provisions like the payroll tax cuts that are set to expire and not be limited to ideas that pass muster with conservative obstructionists. And his plan needs to create jobs fast, not just lay the groundwork for jobs in the future.
Today, CAP experts released a brief entitled, “Spurring Job Creation in the Private Sector: Three Elements that Any Jobs Plan Should Include.” It will offer the following three recommendations necessary to re-engage our nation’s job creation engine: 1) invest substantially in our nation’s infrastructure through existing channels and a new infrastructure bank; 2) speed the housing recovery by tackling the foreclosure crisis; and 3) retrofit homes and businesses to make them more energy efficient. These three areas do not comprise all of what the president should propose, but they are essential elements.
Please join CAP’s Sarah Rosen Wartell, Executive Vice President, Michael Ettlinger, Vice President for Economic Policy, Donna Cooper, Senior Fellow, and Richard Caperton, Energy Senior Policy Analyst, on a press call to discuss a credible plan to make substantial progress toward stronger economic growth and job creation.
