8:40 am
worrying about the possibility of layoffs. the struggles of middle-class families were a big problem before the recession hit m 2007. they weren't created overnight. and the truth is our economic challenges won't be solved overnight. but there are more steps that we can take right now that could help businesses create jobs here in america. today our add min stration is trying to take those steps. so we're reviewing government regulations so that we can fix any rules in place that are an unnecessary burden on businesses. we're working with the private sector to get smalls about and startups, the financing they need to grow and expand. because of the partnership that we've launched with businesses and community college. 500,000 workers will be able to receive the right schools and training for manufacturing jobs in companies all across america. jobs that companies are looking to quill 1 fill.
8:41 am
in addition to the steps that my -- are looking to fill. in addition to the steps my add min stration can take on its own, there are also things that congress can do that will help create good jobs. right now, congress can sent me a bill that would make it easier for entrepreneurs to patent a new product or idea because we can't give innovators and other countries a big leg up when it comes tooeing up new businesses and creating new jobs. that's something that congress could do right now. right now congress could get sent me a bill that would put -- agreements that would support tens of thousands of
8:42 am
american jobs, while helping those add versely affected by -- adversely affected by trade. >> right now, we could give middle class families, the security of knowing that the tax cut i signed in december will be there for one more yee. so there are a number of steps that my add min stration is taking and there are number of steps that congress could be taking right now now, many of these ideas have been tied up for quite sometime. all of them could be used to beef up the economy. one of the most important and urgent things we can do for the economy is something that both parties are working on right now and that's reducing our
8:43 am
nation's deficit. the vice president has been leading this, and as of last week, parties have identified $1 trillion of spending cuts already. but everyone also knows that we'll need to do more to close the deficit. we can't get to the $4 trillion in savings that we need by just cutting the 12% of the budget -- of the budget that pays for things like -- and we can't do it by making seniors pay more for met dicaire. >> we're gonna need to look at the whole budget as i said several months ago. we have to eliminate waste wherever we find it. that means trimming the defense budget. it means we'll have to tackle
8:44 am
entitlements as long as we keep faith by maintaining the fund mental security that medicare and metdy cade provide -- medicaid provide. yes, we a gonna have to tackle spending in the tax code. there's been a lot of discussions about revenues. i want to be clear about what we're proposing here. i spent the last two years cutting taxes for ordinary americans. i wind to extent -- i want to extend those middle class tax cuts. the tax cuts i'm proposing we get rid of are tax breaks for millionaires and billion airs. tax breaks for oil companies and hedge fund managers and corporate jet owners. it would be nice if we could keep these tax breaks. but we have to make decisions
8:45 am
is. if we choose to keep tax breaks for oil and gas companies and jet owners, then that means we gotta cut some kids off from debt 1 getting a college scholarship. that means we have to stop funding certain grants for medical research. that means that foot safety may be compromised. that means that medicare has to bear a greater part of the burden. those are the choices we have to make. so the bottom line is this, any agreement to reduce our deficit is gonna require tougher decisions -- tougher decisionsed, before we cut education, i think it's only fair to ask a company owner and a corporate jet owner that's
8:46 am
done so well to give up that tax break that no other business enjoys. i don't think that's real radical. i think the majority of the americans agree with that. so the good news is because of the work that's been done, i think we can actually bridge our differences i think this could be -- this can be done in a way that does not hurt our economy right here and right now. it's not often that washington sees both parties agree on the scale and the urgency of the challenge at hand. nobody wants to put the creditworthiness of the united states in jeopardy. nobody wants to seat united states default. so we've gotta seize this moment. we have to seize it soon. the vice president and i will continue these negotiations with both leaders of both
8:47 am
parties in congress for as long as it takes. we will reach a deal that will require our government to live within its means and give our business conference and get this economy moving. so with that i will take your questions -- i've got my list here --ing off with -- starting 06 with ben from "the associated press." >> thank you, mr. president. i would like to follow up on the comments you just made as you try to reach a deal to raise the debt limit and cut the deficit. you keep saying there needs to be this balanced approach. but republicans say flatly they won't -- >> they don't want a balanced approach. >> they don't want any tax increases and the house speaker says -- not only that but that plan will not pass the house. so my question is will you insist ultimately that a deal has to include those tax increases that you just laid
8:48 am
out. is that an absolute let line for you? and if it is, can you, plain how that could possibly get through the congress? i think what we've seen in negotiations, a lot of people say a lot of things to satisfy their base or to get on cable news but that hopefully leaders at a certain point rise to the occasion and they do the right thing for the american people and that's what i expect to happen this time. qual me my eastern. but my ex-- call me naive. but my expectation is that leaders are gonna lead. i just want to be clear about what's at stake here. the republicans say they want to reduce the deficit. every single observer who is not an elected official who is not a politician says we can't
8:49 am
reduce our deficit in the scale and scope that we need to without having a balanced approach that looks at everything. democrats have to accept some painful spending cuts that hurt some of our constituencies and we may like them and we've shown a willingness to do that for the greater good, to say, look, there's some things that are good programs, they are nice to have, we can't afford them right now. i have to have difficult de -- discussions with the pentagon saying there's fat here, we need to trim it out. i promise you the preference of the pentagon would be not to cut anymore because they feel like they've --
8:50 am
>> you've been listening live to president obama. a lot of talk obviously on the economy. he said the economic problems we're facing weren't created overnight. won't be -- won't be solved overnight. he did outline, though, a list of specific things congress could do right now to help and he also spent a lot of time talking about the reducing the nation's deficit a lot of talk right now between the republicans and the democrats about raising the debt limit which is about to hit its maximum amount in august. so very important to reach an agreement on that. that's something that's a major focus of the white house. let's quickly go to sal. breaking news. shots fired in san francisco. what's the latest? >> well, our news chopper 2 is still overhead. this scene that happened just before 8:00. you see that honda, it looks like a -- like a late 1980s honda accord splashed into another car there.

8:56 am
let's listen in. >> we would not be carrying the lion's share of this operation but as members of nato we would be supportive of it because it's within our national security interests and also because it's the right thing to do. we have done exactly what i said we would do. we've not put any boots on the ground and our allies who historically we've complained aren't willing to carry enough of the load when it comes to nato operations have carried a big load when it comes to these nato operations. and as a consequence we've protected thousands of people in libya. we've not seen a single casualty. there's no risks of additional escalation. this operation is limited in time and in scope. so i say to the american people here's our narrow mission. we have carried out that narrow
8:57 am
mission in exemplary fashion. and throughout this we've had hearings. we've had reames of what the operation is about. i've had the congress over to talk about it. so a lot of this fuss is politics. if you look substantially at what we've done we have done exactly what we said to do under a u.n. mandate and we've protected thousands of lives in the process. and as a consequence, a guy who was a state sponsor of -- sponsor of terrorist operations against the united states of america is pinned down and the noose is tightening around him. now, when you look at the history of the war power's resolution, it came upar the vietnam war in which we had --
8:58 am
up over the vietnam war in which we had soldiers there, tens of thousands of lives lost, hundreds of billions spent and congress said, you know what? we don't wasn't something like that happening again. so if you are gonna start getting us into those kind of situations. you have to consult with congress beforehand. and i think that -- i don't even have to get to the constitutional question. there may be a sometime -- there may be a me in which there was a serious question as to whether or not the war powers resolution was constitutional. i do not have to get to the concept -- i do have to get to the question.
8:59 am
we have engaged in a limited operation to help a lot of people against one of the worst of tyrants in the world. we should be sending out a unified message to the sky that he should step down and give his people a fair chance to live their lives without fear. come on. you had a three parker. -- you had a three parter. what are the other two? i do not have to reach it. that is a good legal answer. let me start by saying this administration under my direction has consistently said direction has consistently said that we cannot
