Obama pushes bill to aid U.S. states


WASHINGTON, Aug 10 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Tuesday made a last-minute push for passage of a $26 billion aid package to cash-strapped states as Democratic lawmakers were poised to give their final approval.
Appearing in the White House Rose Garden with teachers, Obama said the bill was crucial to avoid layoffs of school employees and other local workers.
“We can’t stand by and do nothing while pink slips are given to the men and women who educate our children or keep our communities safe,” he said.
