MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - President Barack Obama says policies to help the middle class are fully achievable if the country can get Washington to work for average citizens.
   
Obama says the central challenge that drives him is how to ensure hard-working, responsible people can get ahead. He's promoting the need for better childcare policies, paid family leave, a higher minimum wage, and equal pay for men and women.
   
Obama says rather than serve special interests, politicians should engage in a common-sense conversation about the problems people face and the solutions.
   
Obama is answering questions at a town hall meeting. He's spending part of the day with a working mother to highlight Americans still struggling through the economic recovery.
