President Obama Visits Orlando says “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds”

Today, in front of a full house at Valencia State College, President Barack Obama promoted Women in the Economy and their role in the future workforce of the country.

He spoke of his Mother and the way she worked hard to raise him and his sister. He spoke of his Grandmother who, worked at a bank and ultimately hit a glass ceiling, which led to her training people who would eventually be her boss.

“When women make less than men that hurts their family” the President said “it burdens men and children. When they can’t fill their potential that holds us back”

President Obama spoke with a group of students and young female professionals behind him and held a roundtable with them before the speech.

There were light moments “My Household is 80% Women. Including my Mother in Law, I always include my Mother in Law” he stressed.

“Equal pay for equal work. It’s a simple plan” he said.

He promoted the Paycheck Fairness Act and raising minimum wages to $10 per hour and called on Congress to act. He ended the speech by promoting the Affordable Care Act and jabbed Republicans for not moving on equal pay solutions and instead trying to overturn Obamacare 50 times.

Other elected officials on hand included Senator Bill Nelson, Congressman Alan Grayson, and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

The President will head from Orlando this afternoon to a fundraiser in South Florida held by former Miami Heat Basketball Star Alonzo Mourning.
