Obama’s jobs council is expiring, and there are no signs he plans to renew it. Obama created the council in 2011 and filled it with prominent business leaders and economists. The panel offered advice on accelerating job creation, but the president only met with the council a handful of times. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari, File)
