President Obama comes to Cleveland to hype manufacturing comebacks and offers a fix for the problems plaguing the Affordable Care Act. But his visit to a steel plant is somewhat upstaged by an announcement in Akron that 500 local jobs are leaving and a high tech plant there is shutting down. We'll also talk about upgrade plans for FirstEnergy Stadium and concerns over who will foot the nine-figure bill. Join host Rick Jackson for the Sound of Ideas.
