Obama says economic recovery 'painfully slow'

President Barack Obama says that while the U.S. economy is showing progress from the deepest recession in decades, the progress has been painfully slow.
He began a White House news conference Friday by repeating his insistence that Republicans drop stalling tactics on a bill to help small businesses.
He said he understood "there's an election coming up," but he added that some small businesses were putting off plans to hire more workers because the bill is stalled.
