Pres. Obama Visits Albany

ALBANY (WENY) -- President Obama was in Albany Tuesday, discussing a simple idea to fix the nation's problems.

Obama spoke at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Albany, saying the work at the school's nanocenter should to be replicated across the nation.

The President praised the economic progress being made in upstate New York and complimented Governor Cuomo on his work as well.

Obama used the spotlight to shine his own on Congress -- mostly Republicans in the House who are blocking many of his initiatives. Obama says he's providing every member of Congress -- both Democrat and Republican -- with a to-do list to highlight some of the issues both parties need to work on together.
