Obama to pitch ideas in speech for spurring upward mobility in U.S.

U.S. President Obama delivers remarks at a reception with U.S. mayors at the White HouseBy Mark Felsenthal WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will urge the U.S. Congress on Tuesday to do more to help poor and middle-class Americans move up the economic ladder. Both Obama and congressional Republicans view that issue as a high priority, a rare point of agreement between the two sides. But the Democratic president and Republicans disagree on the remedies, setting up a debate that Obama will discuss in his State of the Union address to Congress. In the speech, scheduled for 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday (0200 GMT on Wednesday), Obama will push an agenda for increasing economic upward mobility and propose aid to the long-term unemployed, an increase in the minimum wage and an expansion of early-childhood education.
