(WHAS11)  With the debt fight behind President Barack Obama for now, he is taking a Midwest bus tour later this month and the focus is jobs!

The White House confirmed the trip for the week of August 15, but released no other details.

When Obama signed the legislation raising the debt ceiling, he complained that Washington has been absorbed by the crisis of a looming default while American families are suffering from high unemployment.
