President Barack Obama will seek to highlight gains in advanced manufacturing in the United States during a trip to Pennsylvania on Tuesday as he tries to show how his administration is boosting economic growth without help from Republicans in Congress. A White House report notes that manufacturing output has increased 30 percent since the end of the 2007-2009 recession, and that the sector has added jobs at the fastest rate in nearly two decades.
