Next Wednesday, President Obama wants to deliver a speech to Congress on the US economy.

Sept. 7, 2011 is the day Mr. Obama has requested to speak before a joint session of Congress
8 p.m. This is the same time as the already scheduled Republican presidential debate.

Everyone knew the President was going to make a speech next week, but it is interesting that he would choose to do it in such an elevated setting, and at the same time GOP presidential hopefuls will be laying out their own vision for how to fix the economy... Stay tuned!
