Appearing at an “Insourcing American Jobs” forum at the White House and standing before business leaders who have brought jobs home, Obama said now is a “unique moment” for other American businesses to do the same.

“That’s exactly the kind of commitment to country we need — especially now, at this make-or-break moment for the middle class,” Obama said during remarks in the East Room. “And I’m calling on those businesses that haven’t brought jobs back to take this opportunity to get the American people back to work.
