Obama expected to talk jobs, wages in Wis. speech

Obamacare became law three-and-a-half years ago, but shockingly the website for President Obama's signature piece of legislation was a horrible failure when it rolled out in October. Sure, the website is now functioning pretty well after a two-month makeover, but if I were President and there was a program known as "Obeidallah-care" or "Dean-aid," I can assure you that the website for that program would've been amazing from Day 1.

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- President Barack Obama will be in southeastern Wisconsin, where he's expected to talk about jobs and the minimum wage.

The president is scheduled to visit a General Electric plant in Waukesha that makes gas engines. It's part of a four-stop tour he's making to expand on themes from his State of the Union address.

Thursday's visit comes as Obama's approval rating in Wisconsin has sunk to its lowest level in two years. A poll released Monday says his approval rating among Wisconsin voters is 44 percent, down from 49 percent in October.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker plans to greet the Democratic president in Milwaukee to discuss the state's propane shortage. But Walker says he won't visit the GE plant because he has business in Madison.
