Small town economies still suffering in US

Most Americans living in outside cities think President Obama is not acting to make their life standards better.

    US citizens living in small towns continue to suffer from the recession and rising unemployment.

    Most say that President Barack Obama has not offered any new proposals on how to reinvigorate the economy at the start of his second term.

    Obama has recently given a speech in Galesburg, Illinois defending his economic policies.

    Patty Culhane reports from Galesburg.
