Obama to meet with Congressional Black Caucus at White House on Tuesday

By | July 9, 2013

President Obama will meet at the White House Tuesday morning with members of the Congressional Black Caucus in the first formal meeting with the group in more than two years, according to a congressional aide.

The session is expected to focus on jobs and the economy and will be the first gathering with the president since May 2011.

“The President will discuss legislative priorities, including the need to create jobs and build ladders of opportunity for American families striving to get into the middle class, implementation of the Affordable Care Act, immigration reform and voting rights,” a White House official said in a statement.

The president has come under fire from some top CBC members in the interim, with Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) blasting the president in a March letter for Cabinet appointments she said “have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity.” (The Hill)
