The debt ceiling crisis has temporarily taken a backseat to an equally, if not more important, issue — job creation. President Obama focused on the topic during a speech from a Johnson Controls facility in Holland, Mich.

“We know there are things we can do right now that will help accelerate growth and job creation — that will support the work going on here at Johnson Controls, here in Michigan, and all across America. We can do some things right now that will make a difference. We know there are things we have to do to erase a legacy of debt that hangs over the economy.”
