President Obama held a town hall meeting at Concord Community High School in Elkhart, Indiana, to talk about the economic recovery plan being considered in Congress. In his prepared remarks he spoke about the state of the U.S. economy, called on Congress to act quickly to enact a stimulus bill, and highlighted the need to target spending toward programs to create jobs. Following his remarks he answered questions from the audience.

The event was fashioned on a campaign-style town hall meeting and rally. Residents of Elkhart in attendance at the event were not screened prior to entrance and President Obama recognized at the start of the question period that many in the audience would disagree with him or had not voted for him in the 2008 election. close
