 The US needs to reward companies for keeping jobs in the United States. That message from President Obama today, he held a meeting this morning at the White House with business executives and cabinet members and the topic was jobs. Mr. Obama says even though the employment rate is dropping, more still needs to be done to help people find work.

“After shedding jobs for more than a decade, American manufacturers have now added jobs for two years in a row. That’s good news. But when a lot of folks are still looking for work, now is the time for us to step on the gas.”
The president highlighted companies that have kept workers in this country instead of outsourcing them abroad. The president now is heading to Chicago for three fundraisers for his re-election campaign.
It's on the South Carolina now for the Republican presidential hopefuls, but for former Senator Rick Santorum the New Hampshire primary was a major disappointment. NPR's Don Gonyea says this time Santorum finished well behind Mitt1 Romney.
A week ago, Santorum was the big story of the Iowa caucuses2, losing to Mitt Romney just by eight votes. Last night, he finished some 30 points behind Romney. He came in New Hampshire, hoping to use Iowa to build momentum3. He drew lots of media and good-sized crowds, but his social conservative use did not fit in with the independents and fiscal4 conservatives of New Hampshire. Here’s Santorum last night.
“We wanted to respect the process here. We wanted to respect the fact that we were going to campaign in every single state, states that, you know, were good for us and states that may be a little tougher.”
But Santorum's advisors5 predict a friendlier climate for him in South Carolina which votes in 10 days. Don Gonyea, NPR News, Manchester. 
Federal health officials have delayed a controversial decision about whether to test the anthrax vaccine6 on children. As NPR's Rob Stein reports, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wants a presidential commission to examine whether such testing would be ethical7.
Anthrax is a potentially deadly infection that is among the most likely weapons that a bio-terrorist might use. But the anthrax vaccine has been never been tested in children. So officials have proposed sponsoring it in experiment. They want to determine how well the vaccine works in kids and what dose to give them. But the proposal has generated intense debate. Critics say the hypothetical risk of an anthrax attack is outweighed8 by the possible risks of exposing children to the vaccine. So the HHS secretary has asked the presidential bioethics commission to conduct a thorough review of the ethical considerations of testing the vaccine in children. Rob Stein, NPR News.
