ST. CLOUD - President Barack Obama is getting out of Washington on Friday to rally public support for his newly unveiled jobs initiatives.

However, the President of the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce says small business owners here in Central Minnesota just want the federal government to get out of the way.

The plan the president laid out Thursday night in a nationally televised speech would cost nearly $450 billion and would increase and extend a payroll tax cut for workers that goes to Social Security. It also provides a tax cut to employers.
