President Obama was in North Carolina Monday, drumming up support for his stalled jobs creation plan.
He criticized republicans for blocking the $447 billion bill that he says will put people back to work. Now, the President says he has a new plan for getting lawmakers to vote for the bill.
"We're going to break it up into bite-sized pieces so they can take a thoughtful approach to this legislation. So, this week, I'm going to ask members of Congress to vote on one component of the plan, which is whether we should put hundreds of thousands of teachers back in the classroom, and cops back on the street, and firefighters back to work."
The jobs bill was defeated in the senate last week.
