Obama pushes 'to-do list' for Congress

President Barack Obama pushes his legislative "to-do list" on Wednesday.

He'll start with a visit to a company in the Washington area where he'll stress the need to invest in small business and increase new hiring. He wants Congress to pass a bill that would give a 10 percent tax credit to companies that create new jobs or increase wages this year.

The president also will press the list when he has lunch with the congressional leadership.

Following a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, he'll award the Medal of Honor to Army Spc. Leslie Sabo Jr. posthumously. Sabo was killed in combat in 1970 while serving as a rifleman in Cambodia during the Vietnam War.
