WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- President Obama will travel to Kansas Tuesday to deliver an address on the U.S. economy, the White House said Saturday.

Obama will deliver his remarks at Osawatomie (Kan.) High School, the White House press secretary's office said.

"The president will talk about how he sees this as a make-or-break moment for the middle class and all those working to join it," the White House statement said. "He'll lay out the choice we face between a country in which too few do well while too many struggle to get by, and one where we're all in it together -- where everyone engages in fair play, everyone does their fair share, and everyone gets a fair shot."

The White House noted President Teddy Roosevelt went to Osawatomie 101 years ago to make his pitch for a New Nationalism under which everyone was ensured a fair chance at opportunities to succeed.
