Obama's 'made in America' push

"Made in America" is a phrase that has come easily to President Obama's lips in recent weeks, as he pushes for growth in the US manufacturing sector.

He has suggested that the US's immensely complex corporate tax system should be simplified, with the rate cut from 38% to 28% and a lower 25% rate for manufacturers.

North America editor Mark Mardell reports on whether the rhetoric can match the reality of US industry.
