President Obama Visits Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - In Milwaukee Wednesday afternoon, President Obama promoted tax breaks for businesses that move into cities hurt by the departures of older plants.  Obama made his first visit to Wisconsin in over a year by touring and speaking at the Master Lock plant, which brought back 100 jobs from China in early 2011.  The president reinforced ideas from his State of the Union address in suggesting a minimum tax on multi-national companies, so U.S. firms cannot escape taxes by moving profits and jobs overseas.  Obama  also prodded Congress to approve his tax changes.  He cited a recovery in American manufacturing as he urged companies to “ask what you can do to bring jobs back to your country, and your country will do everything we can to help you succeed.”  The Milwaukee trip was the first stop in a three-day swing that includes campaign fundraisers in California and Washington State. Governor Scott Walker, fighting a flu bug, greeted Obama at the airport and presented him with a Milwaukee Brewers’ jersey with his name and the Number-One on it.  Walker, who’s been extremely critical of Obama’s policies, told a pool reporter he appreciated the president’s focus on manufacturing and said, “We’ll leave politics for another day.”
