Obama lauds rural America, announces growth initiatives in Iowa

PEOSTA, Iowa — On the second day of his Midwestern economic tour, President Obama spoke less about the particulars of policy and more about what Washington could learn from rural America.

“I’ve been traveling through these small towns and talking to folks,” Obama told an audience at Northeast Iowa Community College here. “You do your part. You meet your obligations. It’s time Washington acted the way you do every single day.”
