WASHINGTON DC (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Some economists claim the recession is over. But on Monday during a town hall style meeting, President Obama said millions of struggling Americans feel "it's still very real for them."

During the town hall meeting held by President Obama the President was asked about the Tea Party movement.

He said skepticism of government is healthy.

"I think the challenge right now is that I'm thinking about the next generation and there are a lot of folks out there thinking about the next election. If I were making decisions based on November, I wouldn't have done some of the things I did because I knew they weren't popular but I knew they were the right thing to do,” says President Obama.

Following the town hall the President headed to Pennsylvania to campaign for Democratic Senate Candidate Joe Sestak, who is in a tight race.
