(AP) – Standing at the site of a highway project funded by his economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama said Wednesday he is committed to exploring all avenues to create jobs.

Obama said his administration is going to keep going until “every single American in this country who’s looking for work is going to be able to get the kind of well-paying job that supports their families.”

The administration has stopped short of calling for a second economic stimulus package. But with the job picture slow to improve, Obama said his administration is moving forward on different fronts to boost the economy.

Critics question whether jobs created by the stimulus are worth the price tag and the debt the government has taken on to pay for it.
