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

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 well as the power of the highest office in the nation to motivate business and community leaders to take additional steps. “
