President Obama is asking Democrats and Republicans to act on his "to-do list" for Congress, a five-point plan he says would create jobs and help restore middle-class security.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said Saturday that all the initiatives have bipartisan support. He says only Congress can take such actions as ending tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas or helping small business owners by giving them a tax break for hiring more workers.

Delivering the Republican address, South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem says the GOP is focused on the economy and a pro-growth plan for job creation.

She says Obama is "ignoring the tough choices and trying to
distract from the real issues."
