President spoke to Syracuse residents Thursday about his proposal to make college education more affordable for the middle class.

On a rainy Thursday evening at a packed Henninger High School, President Barack Obama spoke to Syracuse residents as part of his two-day bus tour through New York and Pennsylvania.

The president's tour has focused on his proposed legislation to make high education more affordable. He came to Syracuse, he said, because of programs like Say Yes to Education, which provides free college tuition for students in the Syracuse City School District.
