President Obama says legislation to keep transportation projects going and prevent interest rates from doubling on new loans to college students will help many in this country.
But, he says “we’ve got more to do.”
Mr. Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday that the measure he signed into law Friday will keep thousands of construction workers on the job and help students and their families.

She said the Supreme Court’s upholding of the law adds urgency to repealing the health care overhaul.
