President Barack Obama is again encouraging Congress to pass a bill raising the minimum raise to $10.10 an hour.
In a dig at Republicans in Congress, Obama says they have taken more than 50 votes against his health care law but resist one vote on the minimum wage bill.
In the Republican address, House Speaker John Boehner says the federal government needs to get out of the way as small businesses try to plan for the future.
Boehner says House Republicans are pursuing economic initiatives that put jobs first.
