Obama speaking at Lorain County Community College
When President Barack Obama last visited Lorain County in 2010, his visit to Lorain County Community College was dubbed a “town hall” meeting, open to the public, the Lorain Morning Journal reports. When he returns today, it will be a different affair.
The newspaper reports the event is closed to the public, and about 275 people will be attending, invitation only, according to Steve Sefchik, spokesman for LCCC. A majority of the invitees appear to be local city officials and council members, but others have received invitations as well.
Lately, the president has also urged Congress to pass the Buffett Rule, which he says asks those who make more than $1 million a year to pay at least the same percentage of their income in taxes as middle class families — as a principle of fairness.
The public can view the president’s address live at www.whitehouse.gov. Obama is scheduled to speak about 2:30 p.m. at the College Center.
