Milwaukee, WI (WXOW)-- Michelle Obama spoke to a group of grassroots supporters in Milwaukee.
Michelle Obama spoke at Bradley Tech High School in Milwaukee. The First Lady's speech was part of the Obama campaign's "It takes one" effort, which is encouraging grassroots campaigning.
In her speech, Mrs. Obama highlighted what she calls the success of the President's term, including job creation, the repeal of don't ask don't' tell and the end of the Iraq war.
She also says there is a lot of work still to be done, especially when it comes to the economy. The First Lady says the President has worked hard to provide tax cuts for the middle class, in an effort to boost job creation.
"Barack has cut taxes for working families by $3600," Obama said. "He has cut taxes for small businesses 18 times. Because what Barack understands is that rebuilding our economy is that it starts with the restaurants and the mom and pop stores and the start ups that create two-thirds of the new jobs in this economy."
Mrs. Obama also spoke about the President's concern for the cost of higher education.
Following her speech, the First Lady met with the victims and families of the victims in the Oak Creek shooting.
