ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: After receiving his regular rounds of morning briefings President Obama today will travel to Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Mr. Obama will tour two biotech classrooms at the Forsyth Technical Community College. Afterward the President will deliver remarks on the economy to students, faculty, and local business leaders.
 
During his speech the president is expected to call on Congress, American businesses and the private sector to work with him in helping America achieve the next "Sputnik" moment by investing in education, innovation, and infrastructure.  "The President will also renew his opposition to even a temporary extension of the Bush tax cuts if it does not include an extension of benefits for the unemployed and extensions of the other tax cuts that benefit middle class families," a White House official says. "Without them, taxes would still rise for 95 percent of Americans. He will discuss the need to accelerate our recovery and make the tough choices necessary to reduce our deficit in the long run." The president will return to Washington, DC in the afternoon. -Sunlen Miller
