5. WHITE HOUSE URGING DEMOCRATS TO FOCUS ON ECONOMY

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_OBAMA_ECONOMY?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2013-11-22-06-25-05

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eager to draw contrasts with Republicans, the White House is pushing its economic agenda as it attempts to give Democrats something to talk about other than the troubled health care rollout.

The White House is deploying Vice President Joe Biden and Cabinet members across the country, drawing attention to improvements in the still sluggish economic recovery and detailing the costs of last month's partial government shutdown.

On Tuesday, Obama will address the economy during a visit to the DreamWorks film studios in Glendale, Calif., and next month he plans to host a summit of college presidents and business leaders to push for more college access for disadvantaged students.

The offensive comes as Republicans plan a continuing assault on the health care law by building an anecdote-based indictment of the Affordable Care Act as it goes through its critical enrollment period.
