(WDEF via AP) - President Barack Obama has arrived in Chattanooga for a speech.
Air Force One touched down at the city's airport shortly before 12:30 p.m. EDT.
Obama will speak at Amazon's fulfillment center, outlining a proposal for cut corporate tax rates in more spending on jobs programs. But his offer was immediately panned by congressional Republicans, casting doubts about its prospects.
The White House painted the new offer as a way for Washington to create jobs and generate short-term economic growth even as hopes for a grand deficit reduction deal fade.
