Obama Has A Plan To Bring More Workers Overtime Pay. Here's What It Means For You.

In a blog post on The Huffington Post on Monday, President Barack Obama laid out his highly anticipated plan to extend overtime pay to more American workers. His proposal, which does not require approval from Congress, constitutes arguably his most sweeping economic reform through executive action since taking office.

President Obama remembers Joe Biden's son for living 'life of meaning'

Mourning a loss that touched people on Delaware street corners and far beyond, President Barack Obama on Saturday remembered Beau Biden, the vice president's son, as a public servant who learned through early tragedy what mattered most and resolved to "live a life of meaning."
