FILE - In this Aug. 31, 2011, file photo President Barack Obama gestures after delivering a statement in the White House Rose Garden where in he urged Congress to pass a federal highway bill. In his weekly radio Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011, Obama called on Congress to pass a transportation bill to ensure funding for roads and construction jobs, saying time is running out and "political posturing" may stand in the way. "There's no reason to put more jobs at risk in an industry that has been one of the hardest-hit in this recession," he said. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File) less
