VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. — President Barack Obama says members of Congress should put country before politics, set aside their differences and find ways to get people back to work. The president is vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, but he recorded his weekly Saturday radio and Internet address earlier in the week while in Alpha, Ill., during an economy-focused Midwestern bus tour. He said lawmakers in Washington could learn something from the people in small towns in Illinois and Iowa.
