Liberal groups are slamming President Obama for speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce later this morning, and one progressive group says he must challenge business leaders to support his agenda for investing in infrastructure and innovation.
The progressive Campaign for America's Future, meanwhile, said Obama should challenge the Chamber during his 11:30 a.m. ET address to support infrastructure investments, health care reform and new global trade agreements.
"The president cannot make peace with a Chamber committed to opposing every reform vital for the nation's economy. But he can use this visit not to pander to the Chamber, but to challenge it - challenging it to represent the companies that are its members, not the ideologues that have been its allies," said the group's Robert Borosage.
