President Barack Obama says Congress should make passing a long-languishing aid package to small business its first order of business when it gets back from summer vacation.

He said in remarks in the Rose Garden Monday that he'll also have other specific ideas on the nation's teetering economy in the days and weeks ahead.

But he also said that action on the package of small business tax cuts and credit incentives is "one thing we know that we should do" as soon as possible. Republicans have been blocking the bill, calling it misguided. Obama said: "I ask Senate Republicans to drop the blockade."

Obama's remarks came after he met with economic advisers.
