Obama Hits Up 'Main Street' Economy Tour

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama hit the road again Tuesday to highlight details of a $6 billion proposal to create jobs and strengthen the economy.

Georgia is his next stop on what the administration calls the "White House to Main Street Tour."

The president flew to Savannah, Ga., where some officials said federal stimulus money is coming in too slowly and his economic recovery plan is not working.

The president's plan, which must get congressional approval, involves giving cash rebates to homeowners who make their homes more energy efficient.

"The current thinking is that the program would be in the range of $6 billion, and we think that would be an appropriate range for a program of this magnitude," a senior administration official told Reuters.

Obama will also visit a manufacturing facility and a local small business before returning to Washington.
