President Barack Obama drew heavily on automotive references as he spread his economic recovery message at the Ford Plant at Liberty, MO today. The President also took on Congress’ pitting the debt ceiling against the Affordable Care.
The President told a crowd of mostly auto workers, their families and supporters Congress must raise the debt ceiling or fallout would make America a “deadbeat” to the world.
In announcing it would add 2,000 jobs to its Claycomo Assembly Plant, Ford Motor cited increased sales tied to new stability in the home building market. At the truck factory, Ford executives drew parallels that are being seen industry-wide.
