Interview: WH Cautions Against Infrastructure Inaction
The Obama administration warned Congress Monday that a key federal government fund used to pay for the nations roads, bridges and ports is running dry and that the economy would be damaged if it is not replenished. A White House economic analysis concluded that without congressional action, more than 112,000 ongoing projects would be in danger of falling idle, affection nearly 700,000 jobs.
On the international front, the U.S. is very interested in that Boko Haram video showing about 100 kidnapped girls in Nigeria and the terrorists demanding a prisoner exchange. The White House confirms they believe the video is real and experts are going over every detail they see and hear for some clue on where the girls are being held.
