It's clear from President Obama's State of the Union speech last night that he has manufacturing on his mind. Today he kicks off a three-day tour to states like Iowa, Arizona and Michigan. He's expected to meet with business leaders to highlight his push to bring manufacturing jobs back to America.


Heidi Moore, New York bureau chief for Marketplace, joins us to talk about this and other economic proposals from the President.
