Senator Chuck Grassley is among a small, bipartisan group of senators who went to the White House this morning for a private jobs summit.
Grassley was among a group of eight Republicans and 10 Democrats who started meeting with President Obama and Vice President Biden this morning in the Cabinet Room at the White House, at about 10 o’clock Iowa time. The topic is job creation.
A statement issued by the White House indicated the president wants to “discuss the next steps for growing the economy.” The president wants to divert money set aside for the Wall Street bailout and use it instead to finance road and bridge construction. In addition, Obama’s suggesting small business tax cuts and tax credits for making homes more energy efficient.
Grassley is the top-ranking Republican on the senate committee that drafts tax policy.
