WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will announce a new plan next week to help Americans who continue to struggle to find jobs even as the economy recovers from recession, his senior adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, said on Saturday.
Obama's efforts to help the long-term unemployed are part of an economic strategy he will lay out in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday and expound upon during a four-state tour, Pfeiffer said in a mass email from the White House.
"With some action on all our parts, we can help more job seekers find work, and more working Americans find the economic security they deserve," Pfeiffer said in his email.
Obama has vowed to address the gap between rich and poor in America, and has said he will do what he can - even without help from a deeply divided Congress that, so far, has shown little willingness to spend money on new programs.
He has said he will take executive actions to push forward his agenda, as well as the power of the highest office in the nation to motivate business and community leaders to take additional steps.
A White House official said Obama will announce in his Tuesday speech new executive actions on retirement security and job training to help middle-class workers "expand economic opportunity" - a key theme of the speech.

The laser-focus is kicking in.. again..
almost vacation time again.
Eat your peas.
A new “five year plan” since the last one hasn’t worked, comrade? How many five year plans were enacted by the Soviets that never worked? Socialism, i.e., centralized planning works every time. Every time, we just need to get it right...this time. And for those of you who disagree, we are working on the development of destructive labor camps and other methods to cull the herd of non-believers. Forward!
May the good Lord protect us from any more of this guy’s “ fixing” us.
Look out. Whenever this guy has a plan for the jobless, it usually means more government/union jobs that nobody can afford, and it always results in more jobless in the private sector. Obamacare is certainly seeing to that.
Brown shirt gov’t jobs!
Finally! Recovery summer 6.0 here we come....
I’ll bet anything his plan is more government programs and not less taxes and less regulation.
AMERICA: What happens now?
OBAMA: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall,
and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise —
not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!
AMERICA: Who leaps out?
OBAMA: Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh
OBAMA: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger—
ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away!
The best jobs program would be his resignation.
Headline: Obama to outline plans for new jobless
Obama to propose new 4 year extention of jobless benefits.
This is costing the working class a lot of time and money.
ROFL!! A socialist telling us how he will create jobs by creating money out of thin air and “spreading the wealth around”... ROFL! More Keynesian Krap.
Hubby and I moved from rural Georgia to DC area to become servants of the Washington elite in 2009. We have been gainfully employed, paying their salaries ever since. Are we resentful? What do you think?
as long as ya don’t work at the Labored Dept. ,, party on! :-]
If the last sequester din’t get ya, the next one will. ;-}
“as well as the power of the highest office in the nation to motivate business and community leaders to take additional steps. “
IOW — he will threaten them with an IRS audit from h*ll if they don’t follow his orders.

In before the Soylent Green pictures...
Shovel ready in 2009
I need a job planning his family vacations
Yep. He is teaming up with community leaders and business to push the “new energy” sector. ....again.
Plans to decrease or increase their numbers?
The MSM is still pretending that the economy is recovering?
More government jobs. There’s gonna be a big change in our structure. (Consumerism on its way out) No one’s going to have any income left after heating and health care for any extras. This will be just like life in the EU.
Doing to the American productive class what Stalin did to the Kulaks, without the gulags...yet.
Well,I guess now we can move on?????????????????
He’s got plans to make more people jobless? So what else is new?
Exactly. Plan for jobless is food stamps + disability +healthcare + Obama Phones + housing vouchers.
Gotta keep those who vote for a living nice & dependent.
let me guess, food stamps and unemployment extensions.
That’s about right. Don’t forget the paybacks for his donors (a la Solyndra).

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Oh wonderful. The campaigner in chief is on another campaign.
He will manage to blame the Republicans and Bush, and the press will eat it up.
The press would not dare bring up the question: ‘What have YOU been doing for the last 5 years regarding the joblessness?’
“....as well as the power of the highest office....” That includes the NSA and the IRS. As I’ve said before, there are lots of powerful people behind the thrown.
The NSA and IRS are being used against congress. It’s about to be used against businesses. They are going to destroy their enemies. VJ told us they would.
“The unemployed receiving benefits will no longer be required to look for jobs...it’s screwing with our % unemployed numbers.”
Lemme guess....more dole, more months, more people.
This man is truly a visionary.
If you like your job you can keep your job.
Right, under Obamahire, you’re never out of work again!
Now shut up and dig!
He’d going to propose a fedgov program that will consist of two work teams. Both will be paid prevailing union wages as long as they join the union and donate to the DNC.
One work team will dig holes. The other work team will fill them in.
He is SO clever!
Sit down remove your shoes and put them in a big pot on the stove and make soup
I can tell you what it is,Obama will not rest,from the time he rises in the morning until he goes to bed his TOP PRIORITY will be Jobs, Jobs ,Jobs! ThAnk You and good night.
He’s gonna be focused like a laser beam....
the good news, that is for anyone who wants to see all the Marxists arrested, is that this can’t go on forever.
