Empire Life Thanks President Obama for his visit to Upstate NY and Scranton PA

We would like to thanks President Barack Obama for visiting the upstate areas of New York State as well as Pennsylvania this week.  His trip consisted of visiting Buffalo University, Henninger High School in Syracuse, Tully New York, Binghamton University as well as Scranton PA.  This was an effort to reach out to the 300,000 plus college students who reside in the areas about his interest in college tuition reform with colleges and universities residing in cities and towns throughout the United States.  As you know the cost of college tuition and the cost of living expenses seems to be increasing at a dramatic rate.  This affects parents, students as well as the local economy the thrive only when college semesters are in session.  While some are quite concerned about these issues he has already installed programs to start relieving some of the financial burdens that many of us face and thank Obama for visiting these areas to help restore national recognition and promote more economic growth into these areas.  After his visit we hope and strive for a better future.

Here are some photos from his recent trip.
