Obama announces steps to help struggling homeowners
DENVER (AP) - President Barack Obama says executive steps he's taking to help economically struggling Americans isn't the kind of bold action needed from Congress, but he says what he's doing can help the economy.
Obama returned to Denver, where he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination, to announce steps to help graduates to repay student loans.
Earlier this week in hard-hit Las Vegas, he announced help for people who owe more on their homes than their houses are worth.
With his $447 billion jobs bill blocked by Senate Republicans, Obama is looking for things he can do on his own to prime the economy. He said he has asked his advisers to keep looking for more steps he can take. Denver was the final stop on Obama's three-day West Coast swing.
