Obama, Biden Stop for Lunch at Shake Shack

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are lunching outside the White House and promoting government financed work projects that he says could be endangered if Congress does not act by the end of the summer.

Obama and Biden are eating at a Shake Shack a few blocks from the White House with four workers from a $9.1 million Washington reconstruction project underway about 3 miles away from the lunch spot.

The White House says the project included $6.9 million in federal aid.

Obama says it is, quote, “a no-brainer” for Congress to pass a new transportation finance bill. A key Senate committee on Thursday voted to spend $265 billion on highway projects over the next six years. Still, much legislative work remains before it becomes law.
